Problem with VMS732_DEBUG-v2 patch kit

Heads up:

The following product will be installed to destination:
DEC AXPVMS VMS732_DEBUG V2.0 DISK$ALPHASYS:[VMS$COMMON.]

Portion done: 0%...10%...20%...30%...40%...70%...80%...90%
%PCSI-I-SPAWNEXE, error executing: @PCSI$SOURCE:[SYSUPD]PCSI_POSTINSTALL.COM

%PCSI-E-EXEPSTFAIL, product supplied EXECUTE POSTINSTALL procedure failed
-DELETE-E-DELVER, explicit version number or wild card required
%PCSI-E-OPFAILED, operation failed
Terminating is strongly recommended. Do you want to terminate? [YES]
%PCSI-E-CANCEL_WIP, termination resulted in an incomplete modification to the system
%PCSI-E-S_OPCAN, operation cancelled by request

Recovery pass starting ...


Recovery pass concluded

%PCSI-E-S_OPFAIL, operation failed
%PCSIUI-E-ABORT, operation terminated due to an unrecoverable error condition

I sent a note to the person I knew that handled this stuff, but the e-mail bounced.

Perhaps this will get to the correct person as a result of it being posted here.

Thanks for the heads up Dave!

A whole bunch of delete commands with no version number...

$ delete/nolog/nocon SYS$COMMON:[SYSEXE]DBGHK$HOST_KERNEL.EXE
$ delete/nolog/nocon SYS$COMMON:[SYSEXE]DBGHK$PRCDUMP_KERNEL.EXE
$ delete/nolog/nocon SYS$COMMON:[SYSEXE]DBGHK$SYSDUMP_KERNEL.EXE
$ delete/nolog/nocon SYS$COMMON:[SYSMSG]DBGTBKMSG.EXE
$ delete/nolog/nocon SYS$COMMON:[SYSLIB]TRACE.EXE

Obviously very well tested before release!

Dave,

VMS732_DEBUG-V0300 has now been released. Please feel free to give it another try ;-)

Re: Problem with VMS732_DEBUG-v2 patch kit

We are still having trouble with the debugger:

STR-PRD>type a.for
PROGRAM A

STRUCTURE / TEST_STR/
INTEGER*4 I
INTEGER*4 J
REAL*4 X
CHARACTER*5 A
END STRUCTURE
RECORD / TEST_STR / TEST_REC


TEST_REC.I = 12
TEST_REC.J = 30
TEST_REC.X = 1.123
TEST_REC.A = 'TEST'


END
STR-PRD>fort /debug/noopt a
STR-PRD>link /debug a
STR-PRD>run a

OpenVMS Alpha Debug64 Version V8.3-008

%DEBUG-I-INITIAL, Language: FORTRAN, Module: A

DBG> s

As you can see, we cannot examine an individual element of a record. This problem started after applying the UPDATE v19.00 patch to AXP/VMS 7.3-2. The DEBUG v3.00 patch did not fix the problem.

Any suggestions?

Re: Problem with VMS732_DEBUG-v2 patch kit

John,

please consider to open a new topic for this problem.

I can confirm the problem you've described with VMS732_UPDATE-V1900 applied (Debug64 V8.3-008). I cannot reproduce this problem on OpenVMS Alpha V8.2 (Debug64 V8.2-017).

VMS732_UPDATE-V1900 includes VMS732_DEBUG-V0100 (released 12-FEB-2008), which fixed the following problem:

5.2.2 EXAMINE of FORTRAN record Causes ACCVIO

5.2.2.1 Problem Description:

An EXAMINE of a FORTRAN record or field within a record would lead to a debugger access violation.

Maybe the problem you're seeing is a side-issue related to this fix.

If you can, consider to report this problem to HP or upgrade to a more recent version of OpenVMS. Please also verify, that you did NOT have VMS732_DEBUG-V0100 installed prior to installing VMS732_UPDATE-V1900.

Volker.
