#11110 closed Bug Report - General (fixed)

Myth binaries frequently immediately exit with return code 162

Reported by: superm1@… Owned by: beirdo
Priority: minor Milestone: 0.26
Component: MythTV - General Version: Unspecified
Severity: medium Keywords:
Cc: Ticket locked: no

Description

I'm running on Ubuntu 12.04.1.

$ mythfrontend --version
Please attach all output as a file in bug reports.
MythTV Version : v0.26-rc2-21-g2861862
MythTV Branch : master
Network Protocol : 75
Library API : 0.26.20120822-1
QT Version : 4.8.1
Options compiled in:
 linux profile use_hidesyms using_alsa using_oss using_pulse using_pulseoutput using_backend using_bindings_perl using_bindings_python using_bindings_php using_crystalhd using_dvb using_firewire using_frontend using_hdhomerun using_ceton using_hdpvr using_iptv using_ivtv using_joystick_menu using_libcec using_libcrypto using_libdns_sd using_libxml2 using_lirc using_mheg using_opengl_video using_qtwebkit using_qtscript using_qtdbus using_v4l2 using_x11 using_xrandr using_xv using_bindings_perl using_bindings_python using_bindings_php using_mythtranscode using_opengl using_vaapi using_vdpau using_ffmpeg_threads using_live using_mheg using_libass using_libxml2

Approximately 90% of the time trying to start any myth binary (mythfrontend, mythtv-setup, mythbackend, mythfilldatabase) will cause an immediate exit at the command line. The return code when this happens is 162.

Here's an example of the behavior:

  • Status changed from new to assigned

This corresponds to signal 34. I'll look at putting in a handler for that signal tonight.

comment:2 Changed 19 months ago by beirdo

Please try the attached patch. I have confirmed it works fine in other usage, but I can't reproduce the issue at hand. It should fix it, and also log information as to the source of the SIGRTMIN signal. I would appreciate a sample log output line from when it hits with this patch in.

  • Resolution set to fixed
  • Status changed from assigned to closed

In c7f0676059a6e901b760e596750876783502c1a5/mythtv:

Add support for real time signal 0 handling

Fixes #11110

Seems that some setups (in particular Ubuntu 12.04) are seeing our applications
getting killed by SIGRTMIN. As I have no clue what is causing this, I am
changing the signal handling to use sigaction's extended handlers that hand
off siginfo_t as well. This gives us the source of the signal.

Additionally, I added a default handler for SIGRTMIN. This should end that
nuisance.
