#330 closed defect/bug (fixed)

Out of memory error while allocating memory on the stack

Reported by: Zittix Owned by: KaZeR
Priority: minor Milestone:
Component: core Version: git master
Severity: Keywords:


While porting Navit on the iPhone I found a problem in the file_data_read_compressed() function. The buffer var. is allocated on the stack instead on the heap and sometimes it requires more than 1 Mb to be allocated.

Here is the fixed version:

unsigned char * file_data_read_compressed(struct file *file, long long offset, int size, int size_uncomp) {

void *ret; char *buffer=0;

uLongf destLen=size_uncomp; if (file_cache) {

struct file_cache_id id={offset,size,file->name_id,1}; ret=cache_lookup(file_cache,&id); if (ret)

return ret;


} else {


} lseek(file->fd, offset, SEEK_SET); buffer=g_malloc(size); if (read(file->fd, buffer, size) != size) {

g_free(ret); ret=NULL;

} else {

if (uncompress_int(ret, &destLen, (Bytef *)buffer, size) != Z_OK) {

dbg(0,"uncompress failed\n"); g_free(ret); ret=NULL;


} g_free(buffer); return ret;
