Invalid address alignment - Program received signal SIGBUS, Bus error

Hi Team,

 

I am running building our code on HP-UX  B.11.31 U ia64. This code works on all platfroms except this and I recieve the below error.

 

 

Program received signal SIGBUS, Bus error
si_code: 1 - BUS_ADRALN - Invalid address alignment. Please refer to the following link that helps in handling unaligned datewhelp0610/pragmas.htm#pragma-pack-ex3.

This says you have an alignment trap.  Your 4 byte store address isn't 4 byte aligned:

0x20000000745f44f0:1 <BaseStatement::execute+0x1e31>:  st4

Re: Invalid address alignment - Program received signal SIGBUS, Bus error

Hi Dennis Handly,

Thanks for the quick reply.

Can you explain me what the below statement means as I am not good at assembly language.

0x20000000745f44f0:1 <BaseStatement::execute(unsigned short,unsigned short*,unsigned short*)+0x1e31>: st4

Also when I said that this code works on other platforms I meant that it works on other unix flavours like Linux, Solaris.

Do you think changing the argument types to "long" in BaseStatement::execute(unsigned short,unsigned short*,unsigned short*) will fix this issue?

Thanks in advance.

>Can you explain me what the below statement means

 

First of all, the line is truncated and all that is there is the st4 and not the register operands.  If you have that and a dump of the registers (info reg), then you can confirm the bad alignment.

 

>when I said that this code works on other platforms

 

That's why it doesn't work here.  You are depending on the kindness of (strangers :-) x86 or of the OS.  HP-UX by default doesn't allow misaligned data.

 

>Do you think changing the argument types to "long"

 

No, that might make it worse.

Do you have debug info?  If so, using gdb, you can print out the values of your pointers to check alignment.

 (It does look like your code has been optimized.)

 

If you really need to operate on misaligned data, if you look at the link that gdb was mentioning, it mentions a bunch of pragmas and options you can try:

Thanks Dennis Handly, I will try out your suggestions.
