I’ve recently revisited some old code that used to compile and run fine with version 1.0 of the toolkit, but crashes nvcc version 1.1. Specifically, I get a segmentation fault from the compiler when I attempt to build.
Running nvcc -ptx will successfully compile a ptx file, and then ptxas will give the segfault when attempting to assemble it, so I suspect the problem is in ptxas. The particular kernel I’m trying to compile is quite large, both in terms of memory usage and number of instructions. Perhaps ptxas is not able to handle it? Of course, I would expect an error message, not a segfault. It shouldn’t be possible to crash the compiler!
Unfortunately I cannot post source code. Has anybody else seen this problem before? I would certainly appreciate a fix!
