Trouble with ScriptInterpreter unit tests

Hi there,

I’ve been working on a patch for LLDB but have been having an issue running the test suite (even on a clean checkout of trunk) where the ScriptInterpreter tests are hitting SIGSEGV. From what I understand, the unit test involves an embedded Python interpreter and it’s happening when we try to import the LLDB module.

I was wondering whether anyone has encountered this before. I’m new to LLDB and LLVM in general so I figured I’d check if there’s something obvious I’m doing wrong before going too far down the rabbit hole.

In case it’s important, my CMake and Ninja invocations look like this:

cmake -G Ninja -DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=Debug -DLLVM_ENABLE_ASSERTIONS=ON -DLLVM_ENABLE_PROJECTS=“clang;lldb;libcxx;libcxxabi” -DCMAKE_CXX_COMPILER=“g+±5” -DLLVM_PARALLEL_LINK_JOBS=1 -DBUILD_SHARED_LIBS=ON …/llvm

LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/home/alexc/work/llvm-project/build/lib ninja check-lldb-unit

And each stack trace looks like this:
