Forum OpenACS Q&A: Re: Mozilla 4.0 kills openacs?
I think you are attaching gdb to the running process, which then gets killed. You can probably make that work too (I don't remember, it's been a long time since I used gdb much), but for just getting a backtrace that's not necessary. Instead, just run gdb on the core file which is written out after the process crashes:
In Emacs, do:
M-x gdb-core and answer it's questions. It
will ask you for the path to the AOLserver executable, and for the
path to the core file. Once gdb starts up, just try "bt". Some
additional gdb commands that might help give you more info are:
Of course, change the path names above to point to your source trees for AOLserver.(gdb) dir /web/aol4-src/aolserver (gdb) dir /web/aol4-src/aolserver/nsd (gdb) set height 0 (gdb) show directories
