Bug 49023

GemStone/S 64 Bit

3.5.3, 3.5.2, 3.5.1, 3.5, 3.4.5, 3.4.4, 3.4.3, 3.4.2, 3.4.1, 3.4


pstack broken on Mac

The pstack script relies on the OS-level command gdb or lldb.

In versions of the Mac that no longer have gbd installed, for GemStone versions prior to v3.5.3, pstack does not work.

With the added security required by Apple for later Catalina releaes, and implemented for GemStone in v3.5.3, lldb would get an EPERM error attempting to attach to a process to get a stack trace.
