Subject: Core when using Perl 5.10
Date: Fri, 03 Oct 2008 03:05:25 +0200

From: "Heiko Jansen" <>
It looks like there's a problem with Net::SSH2 when used with Perl 5.10. I was able to reproduce the problem described below on SLES 10.1 on x86_64, RHEL 5.1 on x86_64 and also on openSUSE 11.0 on x86_32. Things work fine on Solaris 10, SPARC 64Bit with Perl 5.8.8 (have no Perl 5.10 there yet). I discovered it in my own application, but it can easily be replicated with the included ~/example/ If - after compiling and installing Net::SSH2 - I invoke I get a core with this stack: #0 0x00002b821a183966 in set_error () from /digibib/tools/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.10.0/x86_64-linux-thread-multi-ld/auto/Net/SSH2/ #1 0x00002b821a18e8d3 in XS_Net__SSH2__Channel_blocking () from /digibib/tools/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.10.0/x86_64-linux-thread-multi-ld/auto/Net/SSH2/ #2 0x00002b821928a37b in Perl_pp_entersub () from /digibib/tools/lib/perl5/5.10.0/x86_64-linux-thread-multi-ld/CORE/ #3 0x00002b821928898e in Perl_runops_standard () from /digibib/tools/lib/perl5/5.10.0/x86_64-linux-thread-multi-ld/CORE/ #4 0x00002b8219284587 in perl_run () from /digibib/tools/lib/perl5/5.10.0/x86_64-linux-thread-multi-ld/CORE/ #5 0x0000000000400d2c in main () If I comment out the call " $chan->blocking(1);" in line 307 of still crashes but the stack changes to: #0 0x00002b293b7b1966 in set_error () from /digibib/tools/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.10.0/x86_64-linux-thread-multi-ld/auto/Net/SSH2/ #1 0x00002b293b7b93d9 in XS_Net__SSH2__Channel_read () from /digibib/tools/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.10.0/x86_64-linux-thread-multi-ld/auto/Net/SSH2/ #2 0x00002b293a8b837b in Perl_pp_entersub () from /digibib/tools/lib/perl5/5.10.0/x86_64-linux-thread-multi-ld/CORE/ #3 0x00002b293a8b698e in Perl_runops_standard () from /digibib/tools/lib/perl5/5.10.0/x86_64-linux-thread-multi-ld/CORE/ #4 0x00002b293a8b2587 in perl_run () from /digibib/tools/lib/perl5/5.10.0/x86_64-linux-thread-multi-ld/CORE/ #5 0x0000000000400d2c in main () I had a look at the generated SSH2.c and I'm pretty sure that there's something wrong with this expression: ch = (SSH2_CHANNEL *)SvIVX((SV*)SvRV(ST(0))); which appears both in XS_Net__SSH2__Channel_blocking and XS_Net__SSH2__Channel_read. But since I do know almost nothing about XS I haven't got an idea what's wrong with that (or how it's generated and how to take influence on that). My env: gcc -v Using built-in specs.

As you probably recognize I built my own perl and did not use one provided by Novell/SUSE. libssh2 is latest released version 0.18 If you could come up with a patch that would be highly appreciated (I'm simply in dire need of Net::SSH2). If you need someone to test a patch, please let me know. Heiko

Oh dear, why do I always find these things after submitting a report... In RKITOVER already kindly provided a patch which resolves the problem for me. Would be nice if it could be part of Net::SSH2 0.19. Heiko
