I can't debug my program with gdb because when it encounters gethostname() it throws a segfault, here's the output from a backtrace.
#0 0x77ea078a in _libkernel32_a_iname () #1 0x76f22e68 in _libkernel32_a_iname () #2 0x0022f280 in ?? () #3 0x77ef460b in _libkernel32_a_iname () #4 0x76f27ca4 in _libkernel32_a_iname () #5 0x76f27c65 in _libkernel32_a_iname () #6 0x76f27bdf in _libkernel32_a_iname () #7 0x71a5a05c in _libkernel32_a_iname () #8 0x71a5c7ce in _libkernel32_a_iname () #9 0x71a5c90c in _libkernel32_a_iname () #10 0x71ab4ece in _libkernel32_a_iname () #11 0x71ab4df6 in _libkernel32_a_iname () #12 0x71ab4d91 in _libkernel32_a_iname () #13 0x71ab2e96 in _libkernel32_a_iname () #14 0x71ab373e in _libkernel32_a_iname () #15 0x71ab3673 in _libkernel32_a_iname () #16 0x71ab5699 in _libkernel32_a_iname () #17 0x71ab55d5 in _libkernel32_a_iname () #18 0x71ab54f0 in _libkernel32_a_iname ()
gethostname works fine when running the program normally. What might the cause be?
