Workarounds for ruby 1.8.6 segmentations faults

Hi,

I am running Rails 2.1.0 and ruby-1.8.6 (2008-06-20 patchlevel 230
[i686-linux]. I am experiencing the same segmentation faults that
several others are who are running this version or ruby. Can anyone
recommend a good workaround for these bugs until the Rails Core Team
puts out something official?

Thanks!

Cheri

Um, I somehow doubt it’s Rails segfaulting. I’m running the same Ruby
and Rails and have had no issues.

What exactly is throwing the seg faults?

Jason

It’s not Rails, it’s Ruby. See http://www.ruby-forum.com/topic/157034

try JRuby in the meantime. We’re not affected by those security

issues and run Rails 2.1 fine…

indeed. that’s a great plus for jruby.
will jruby support ruby1.9 and future ruby versions?

thanks and kind regards -botp

Possible roadblock: You’re using native-code libraries that do not have
JRuby analogues.

Yes, we plan to start adding 1.9 features over the summer and into fall,
with final support being ready around 1.9.1 release time at Christmas.

Perhaps an opportunity to try something new?

Wow, we’re also seeing seg-faults with this.

So a possibly vulnerable -p114 or a non-working -p230, nice.

Hmm, I didn’t see problems locally because the ebuild for p230
includes a rollback patch that reverts change 15856. We’ll see what
the official fix is, hopefully it’s soon.

wow, very cool indeed.
i’d like to test it on ramaze since ramaze is 1.9 ready.

thanks for jruby

For what it’s worth, JRuby will support both 1.8 and 1.9 in the same
distribution:

âž” jruby -help
Usage: jruby [switches] [–] [programfile] [arguments]
-0[octal] specify record separator (, if no argument)
-a autosplit mode with -n or -p (splits $_ into $F)

–1.8 specify Ruby 1.8.x compatibility (default)
–1.9 specify Ruby 1.9.x compatibility
–version print the version

If it segfaults and you did not investigate why you should assume it
is also vulnerable, although probably to a different thing.

Thanks
