gtk3 > 3.24.10 crash during opengl probing

Reported by: Antoine Martin Owned by: Antoine Martin
Priority: major Milestone: 4.1
Component: android Version: 3.0.x
Keywords: Cc:


We had to revert the upgrade from 3.24.10 to 3.24.14: r25870.

We also cannot upgrade to gtk 3.24.20 as the bug is still present in this version.
So the moduleset update included in r26824 (+r26825) causes the opengl crash to occur again.

We need to bisect it and then patch it + submit upstream.

Sadly, the GTK diffstat is absolutely humongus:

bash-3.2$ diff -urN gtk+-3.24.10 gtk+-3.24.11/| wc -l
bash-3.2$ diff -urN gtk+-3.24.11 gtk+-3.24.12/| wc -l
bash-3.2$ diff -urN gtk+-3.24.12 gtk+-3.24.13/| wc -l
bash-3.2$ diff -urN gtk+-3.24.13 gtk+-3.24.14/| wc -l
  • 3.24.10 OK
  • 3.24.11 OK

  • 3.24.12 OK
  • 3.24.13 build fails:

So somewhere between:

You need to start by "git bisect start"

But then we hit lots of failures to build when using these git checkouts, those don't happen with the release snapshots! Why?

  CC       libgtk_3_la-gtkdbusgenerated.lo

What's the trick?

Bisection "fixed" by just adding the missing files from the working archives:

cp ../pkgs/gtk-bug/gtk+-3.24.14/gtk/gtktypebuiltins.c ../gtk+-3.24.20/gtk/
cp ../pkgs/gtk-bug/gtk+-3.24.14/gtk/gtkresources.c ../gtk+-3.24.20/gtk/
cp ../pkgs/gtk-bug/gtk+-3.24.14/gtk/gtkmarshalers.c ../gtk+-3.24.20/gtk/
cp ../pkgs/gtk-bug/gtk+-3.24.14/gtk/gtkprivatetypebuiltins.c ../gtk+-3.24.20/gtk/

Then just skip building "demos" etc

And the problem commit is (large) https://gitlab.gnome.org/GNOME/gtk/commit/f0002ad37250cd851463e9bc9fde83f393cd12bd, which was merged here: https://gitlab.gnome.org/GNOME/gtk/commit/ef72fe750adca51590b8c94a2e6c56cac32c2173.

Reverting this commit on top of 3.24.20 does work.
