12.1. If samhain appears to hang indefinitely

If you have the impression that samhain hangs indefinitely, this could be due to a deadlock caused by some rare circumstance (it is not possible to fully test all possible configurations of samhain ).

The most useful thing to do then is to recompile samhain with --enable-debug=gdb , start it in the foreground under the control of the gdb debugger, and get a backtrace as soon as it seems to hang:

        bash$ gdb ./samhain
        (gdb) run -t check -p info --foreground --forever
	(samhain output) 
        (gdb) thread apply all
        (gdb) backtrace
