Description Darin Adler 2016-10-21 22:25:44 PDT
Seeing crashes in init_WebCreateFragment(WebCore::Document&, NSAttributedString*, WebCore::FragmentAndResources&).

Dan pointed out the likely cause:

The use of SOFT_LINK_FRAMEWORK(WebKitLegacy) seems incorrect. The macro is intended for use with frameworks installed directly in /System/Library/Frameworks. But WebKitLegacy is not installed in that location. In macOS it’s installed inside the WebKit umbrella framework, and in iOS it’s installed in /System/Library/PrivateFrameworks.

I’m going to try this:



But the real problem is that last time I didn’t test!

I’ve uploaded a patch, but also seems critical this time that someone does some testing, ideally me. Maybe I can make a unit test? I am not set up for iOS development at the moment.

We should have a unit test that exercises this code path. However, such a test would not have caught this mistake, because when we run tests, we always have DYLD_FRAMEWORK_PATH pointing at a location that contains a WebKitLegacy.framework, so dyld never gets as far as to look for it in /System/Library/Frameworks and fail to find it there.

r=me because there’s no practical way to add a regression test for this.
