Re: strange behavior with single thread
Just to add to the rest of the info, I'm using i386-elf (that comes
with ecos) to compile my
I have another program that too has a single thread and it uses TWO
struct sockaddr_in var's.
That program works just fine!
Running strace on the prog shows a lot of Seg faults happening. I'm
pretty clueless right now
as to why one works while the other does not! :(
