What patches do I need for HP-UX 11.00?

On an HP-UX machine, when I type uname -a, I get the following:

"HP-UX ono B.11.00 A 9000/871 2000957485 two-user license"

I am trying to write software in C++ and compiling with gcc 3.4.2. I am getting some very strange crashes when I run my programs, particularly in the multi-threaded portions. I do have QPK1100 installed on the computer, but I've been reading about other patches that I may possibly need. Do I need PHKL_27282? What about any others? My app just crashes for no apparent reason, stack traces come up with a NULL stack trace, and I've even tried Purify and Insure++. I fear that I have have bad libraries linked in. Any advice is appreciated.

Re: What patches do I need for HP-UX 11.00?

I already have the latest bundle, which from what I can tell is:

QPK1100 B.11.00.64.4 Quality Pack for HP-UX 11.00, March 2004

But my program crashes with the following:


"Pid 19469 killed due to trashed stack.
Pid 19469 was killed due to failure in writing the signal context."

I have no idea what is causing this. It is a multi-thread application and when I remove the calls to pthread_create, the app works fine. I'm wondering if I have a bad pthread lib or something to that effect. This is NOT a 64 bit machine.

Is there an email list that I can subscribe to that will notify me when critical patches are distributed?
