Re: Problems setjmp.h on Fedora 5


In recent versions of glibc, setjmp() now mangles the stack pointer when
it stores it and unmangles it in longjmp().  I suspect your code is trying
to change the stack pointer (since it uses the offset), which won't work
unless it knows how to mangle it properly.

Some options are to implement the mangling algorithm in the code (which is
platform specific and will be a pain to maintain), or switch to using
setcontext/makecontext/getcontext.  That's what was done in OpenAFS to
support FC5.
