AMD-gdDEbugger 6.2 crashes

Jump to solution

Hello,

I am using AMD gdebugger 6.2.865.0 with catalyst version 12.8 as recommended.

I tested amd gdebugger with the teapot sample and the parallax mapping sample from 2005 downloaded from the AMD page, which works.

However i tested it on two of my own OpenGL 3.3 core profile applications during which it both crashes quite early. The same happens with gdebugger 5.8 and with AMD's code XL. I tried to find heap corruption and search for other problems in my program but it was inconclusive. That being said, i want to mention that i used to debug both of my OpenGL applications with gdebugger 5.8 beforehand on another computer with an Nvidia graphics card and there it did not crash. I of course recompiled all my dependencies and the whole application on my new computer.

GPU is AMD HD Radeon 7950 with boost, if that is relevant.

I use glfw and gl3w as additional dependencies to my project. I write for Opengl 3.3 Core Profile. The program runs fine using Visual Studio 2010 in debug mode or just running the exe directly.

Here is the crash information:

If i just hit the Go (F5) button of AMD gDebugger it stops with this callstack:

ZwRaiseException - ntdll.dll

KiUserExceptionDispatcher - ntdll.dll

0x0044f1e7 -

0x00000000 -

Which is very inconclusive and I can't do anything with that.

If i use "Draw Step (Shith+ F10)" (sic.) it will crash at this call "glClear( GL_COLOR_BUFFER_BIT );" in glfwOpenWindow() of glfw

Code of the function: http://pastebin.com/0gdVEHZt (glClear is one of the last calls there)

The crash info:

If i use Frame Step it will crash with this:

http://pastebin.com/2JMdfA3P

Using Step In ( F11 ) and some hundreds clicks on that, i reach this point: http://pastebin.com/j7YGZxgg

Which crashes in this call:

_glfwWin.GetExtensionsStringEXT = (PFNWGLGETEXTENSIONSSTRINGEXTPROC)
    wglGetProcAddress( "wglGetExtensionsStringEXT" );

Now thats as close as i can get. Nothing seems out of order, there too, or does it?

I really need to be able to debug, track and profile my OpenGL applications, and as it has become part of my workflow to use gdebugger i would greatly appreciate support on this problem.

I managed to get it working...

I followed this guide to remove Catalyst completely : http://www.overclock.net/t/988215/how-to-properly-uninstall-ati-amd-software-drivers-for-graphics-ca...

I did what's said on the link, rebooted, installed 12.8 again, rebooted, and now gdebugger by AMD works. What a hassle, i cant believe i wasted ~2 days of work on trying to debug my application, glfw, and checking for heap corruptions

The problem might be that I had the 12.9 beta catalyst installed, before i uninstalled it and installed 12.8. I however cannot remember if i installed 12.9 because gdebugger didn't work or if i installed it before i ran gdebugger the first time. Either way, on the time of my first post i had 12.8 installed, i checked the driver and catalyst version in the CCC information panel at that time.

Anyways. i m glad this cryptical problem is solved

http://devgurus.amd.com/thread/159864 as you can see CodeXL can crash with Catalyst 12.9. As CodeXL is based on gdDEbugger it most likely apply on it too.

I can say that with catalyst 12.9 any application that I tried segfault.
