Hi,

I recently ran into a problem when profiling with eclipse agentcontroller
version 4.4.0.2 on a linux distribution. I searched the net and found that a
similar problem was posted on this newsgroup on 30.05.2007, with the same
subject as this post, but there was no solution found. The start of his post
is given below.

I'm having a similar issue when I attempt to profile something within
Eclipse, so I'm fairly certain I do not have my environment setup correctly.
However, I did follow the install guide for the agent controller so I'm not
sure what the issue is. I am running 4.3.1, JDK 1.5.0_11, on Fedora Core 6.


Here is the message:


$ sh RAStart.sh
Starting Agent Controller.
#

#
# SIGSEGV (0xb) at pc=0x0011cca4, pid=4738, tid=1125488

As I said I had a similar problem, and the output when I started the
agentcontroller is given below.

The problem appeared every time the machine I tried to profile was on dhcp,
not when I used a fixed IP.
In my case I traced it down to a missing entry in the /etc/hosts file. When
the machine was on dhcp it's own ip-address and hostname was not listed
in the hosts file, if this was added to the file then the agentcontroller
worked normally.
