Unhandled exception after upgrading gnuradio

Hi,
I am using benchmark_tx.py and benchmark_rx.py in code to make WBX
usrp2 as transceiver, this was running without error until I upgraded my
gnuradio from 3.5.1 to current version

v3.5.2-1-g57ad294b, when I run the same code now it gives a
segmenatation fault(core dump), below are the /var/log/messages when
seg. fault occurs

In the code this occurs at tb.start() inside benchmark_rx.py

and it works without an error after a 6-8 trials in a row ,
I am not able to figure out where there is exception that is not handled
properly, I appreciate your comments.

Can you follow the instructions here:

And get us a backtrace (bt in gdb) when the seg fault happens? It’ll

This might be related to the problems Martin B. is having with sse3
volk in the other thread today. Was anything done to volk git recently
that would effect sse3?

Rafiq,

What CPU are you using for this test? Specifically, please send the
output
of “cat /proc/cpuinfo”.

For what it’s worth, the attached FFT filter tester flow-graph works
just fine on my AMD 64-bit machine (Phenom II X4 955) with the latest
Gnu Radio.

Your CPU doesn’t seem to support SSE3, which begs the question, why is
it
allowed to call the SSE3 proto-kernel?

Check your ~/.volk/volk_config to see what it says on that kernel (that
is,
if you have run volk_profile; if you haven’t, run it first and see what
happens).

I’m not wholly convinced this is the problem. I’d expect to see an
illegal
instruction error, not a memory access error, if an SSE3 instruction
were
called on a machine which doesn’t support it. That said, if SSE3 isn’t
set
in cpuflags it shouldn’t be allowed in Volk. I’ll check the flag in
Volk…

The information in /proc/cpuinfo appears to be incorrect. That
particular CPU, the T2400, actually
does support SSE3, according to the Intel datasheet, and other
googled stuff out there.

The relevant line in the Volk archs.xml is correct, and it’s looking for

That still might be indicative of the problem, though, that the flags
are
being read incorrectly by the proc system. Very strange, that.

Marcus, if you would, change the volk kernel from the aligned (_a) to
the
unaligned one (_u) and see what that does. In the FFT, since it’s an
FFTW
buffer, it should be aligned, but this will let us know.

Ok, changed from the “_a” to the "u" variant in
gri_fft_filter
{ccc,fff}, and voila! It now works!

Thanks to Marcus’ help, I figured out the error here was due to a very
silly assumption that I had made regarding our own array for the Fourier
taps. Apparently, this is always handled “correctly” (for Volk’s
definition
of correct) on 64-bit machines but not 32-bit ones.

Attached is a patch that uses fftw_malloc to create an array to store
the
taps in. I created some helper functions in gri_fft to abstract the
specific use of fftw in the filter code itself like we’ve done with the
rest of fftw’s invocation.

Please try this out and let me know. I’ve only verified it on a 32-bit
VM,
so I just want to make sure there’s nothing I’m missing (although it was
failing previously as expected, so I think this works).

There are still a couple of other 32-bit issues that I’m seeing in other
blocks. I’ll look into those next.

Thanks,
Tom

Ok, I have a branch ‘volk_32bit_fixes’ published at:
git://github.com/trondeau/gnuradio.git

This should fix the fft_filter issue and another issue in one of the
volk
convert functions (that is not used in GNU Radio but was failing
anyway).

I’m still seeing the 32fc_x2_dot_product_32fc failure. It looks like
this
is in the SSE_32 proto-kernel. I’m seeing if we can get a quick fix for
it.
This is the same problem Martin was seeing. If we can’t get a fix for
it,
I’m going to temporarily disable it until we get it fixed.

Tom

Hi,
pls suggest fix for this, i have attached my cat /proc/cpuinfo .
Thanks

Hi,
pls suggest fix for this, i have attached my cat /proc/cpuinfo .
Thanks

I already did. To quote:

"Ok, I have a branch ‘volk_32bit_fixes’ published at:
git://github.com/trondeau/gnuradio.git

This should fix the fft_filter issue and another issue in one of the
volk
convert functions (that is not used in GNU Radio but was failing
anyway).

I’m still seeing the 32fc_x2_dot_product_32fc failure. It looks like
this
is in the SSE_32 proto-kernel. I’m seeing if we can get a quick fix for
it.
This is the same problem Martin was seeing. If we can’t get a fix for
it,
I’m going to temporarily disable it until we get it fixed.

I have been waiting for people with 32-bit machines to try it out and
report back before merging it.

Just tried it on my T2400-based machine (Centrino M), and it works just
fine.
