testbin/bigexec is hanging when run through the shell?


(Mateusz Marek Oramus) #1

So currently we are not passing the redirect test and the bigexec test. When we run bigexec test through the console we are hanging at the last step (#9) with testing 300, 8_letter words, our exec seems to be working for almost all cases and seems to just hang after execing the final case. Our factorial, add, and argtest all pass and work fine. We are most certain our exec works but it seems to hang and we don’t know why. We are certain that we kmalloc’d and kfree’d properly and our argv is setup properly. Any ideas on why it would hang?

Thanks!

We have narrowed down the problem to running out of memory in the stack. Should be able to debug this and have bigexec passing.
