Description Lo 2004-12-19 06:06:18 UTC
Distribution: Debian/sid
Hardware Environment: Thinkpad T40p 2373-G1G
Software Environment: Debian kernel-image-2.6.8-1-686 2.6.8-10, with cmdline
root=/dev/hda2 ro nolapic 
Problem Description: SIGFPE in libc6's difftime() when waking up from sleep
under zsh

Steps to reproduce:
1. Run as root "gdb zsh"
2. Launch zsh with "run"
3. Type "echo mem > /sys/power/state", system should sleep
4. Press power button or open lid and system should wake up
5. You get a SIGFPE in the difftime() function from libc6.

Sadly, this happens with Debian and 2.6.9 kernels.  I have searched a
while to understand where it comes from and explained the details in the Debian
bug report:

Let me know if this is insufficient, I'd be glad to complete the informations.
Comment 1 Shaohua 2004-12-19 23:42:50 UTC
Could you please try latest kernel? Does this bug always show or just 
Comment 2 Lo 2004-12-20 02:59:58 UTC
Ok, I'll try 2.6.10-rc3 ASAP if that's the kernel you meant.  I have to mention
that I won't build it with the Debian patches applied, but with the same .config
as far as possible.

Yes, it always happen, especially in and in 2.6.9.

Does "date" give the correct answer after resume?
Comment 4 Lo 2004-12-25 01:04:00 UTC
Yes the date is correct:
bee# date                     
Fri Dec 24 19:23:36 CET 2004
bee# echo 3 > /proc/acpi/sleep
zsh: floating point exception  sux -
bee% date
Fri Dec 24 19:23:55 CET 2004

Did you see gdb's output examining the FPU?  Sounds a bit strange to me that the
FPU state seems borken.

I'm trying to bring a 2.6.10-rc3 to work, but I miss some time before my
holidays though.

Merry Christmas!
Comment 5 Lo 2005-01-13 00:07:39 UTC
I confirm this still happens in 2.6.10.
Comment 6 Lo 2005-07-22 05:24:34 UTC
Might be fixed by:

Will confirm when it hits Debian.
Comment 7 Shaohua 2005-09-05 00:00:05 UTC
Could we have an update with latest kernel?
Comment 8 Lo 2005-09-05 00:33:39 UTC
Still happens with 2.6.12.  I'll try with 2.6.13 which I know has more suspend
patches merged-in.
