I have been having a lot of issues with SEG Faults and crashes as the same as this bug:
The workaround in that thread suggested using the Boehm GC.
I have tried putting this flag however the flag `--gc=boehm` does not seem to work?
This is the sample console application code I'm using to detect which GC is in use:
if (GC.MaxGeneration == 0)
However when invoking this on the command line:
mono --gc=boehm test.exe
it always prints `Sgen`
My mono version is:
Mono JIT compiler version 4.0.2 (Stable 18.104.22.168/c99aa0c Wed Jun 24 10:04:37 UTC 2015)
Copyright (C) 2002-2014 Novell, Inc, Xamarin Inc and Contributors. www.mono-project.com
LLVM: supported, not enabled.
my platform is:
Linux workstation01 3.16.0-45-generic #60~14.04.1-Ubuntu SMP Fri Jul 24 21:16:23 UTC 2015 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux
Any help would be most appreciated.
Try executing 'mono-boehm' directly instead.
Many thanks for your suggestion:
I've now tried "mono-boehm" which was not installed as part of mono-complete. After installing "mono-runtime-boehm", Zoltan's suggestion worked.
I think the documentation needs to be changed as it appears that the "--gc=boehm" flag has been depreciated?
Otherwise this is fine to close this bug.
--gc=boehm option works only if mono-boehm is present. Added a warning so we don't silently fail.
