RE: [xml] Segfault on AIX


have you compiled statically or dynamically ?
with gcc or the ibm cc (at least 3.6.6) ?

does "libXML" you got it as package either 
from the bull/freeware site or the freeware cd of
AIX 5.1 ?

Subject: [xml] Segfault on AIX

Dear XML users,

I am puzzled by the following behavior: My code runs and parses XML
correctly in a plain-vanilla RH7.1+XimianGnome box, but when I compile in
an IBM SP supercomputer (AIX) using the latest libXML out of the box
(libXML with and without my own libZ in --prefix=$HOME, when I
try to open a simple xml file (not gzipped),

I get the following segfault:
Stack Trace
     .gzopen,               FP=2ff221b0
C    .xmlGzfileOpen,        FP=2ff221b0

     .__start,              FP=2ff224c0

Just for sanity check, I include the Stack Frame and source code lines
where the thing 'leaves' my code and enters libXML:

Stack Frame
Function ".p_read_xml_file":
  fname (R31):     0x200010c8 -> "psi.xml"
  u (R28):         0x200012b8 -> 0x00000003 (3)

And here are the offending lines:

gboolean p_read_xml_file(char *fname, PsiData u)
    xmlDocPtr doc;
    xmlNsPtr ns;
    xmlNodePtr cur;
     * build an XML tree from a the file;

    if(fname==NULL) {
        g_error("NULL XML filename.\n Exiting!\n");
**    doc = xmlParseFile(fname);
    if (doc == NULL)
            g_error("Input filename: %s is not a valid XML file!\n

(... code continues ...)

The code dies entering the doc= xmlParseFile(fname);

I tried looking in the mailing lists and bugzilla, but I find not a clue
about this. I attach the libxml config.log on the computer I am compiling
in.. (AIX 4.3.3 with GCC)

blue199:./configure --prefix=$HOME

checking whether the C compiler (gcc  ) is a cross-compiler... no

What puzzles me also is why gzopen() if the xml file is not gzipped?

Thanks a lot in advance,
