gopls version

Tested both 0.11.0 and 0.12.4. Cannot capture version output, as it crashes immediately on launch. Output is:

fatal: morestack on g0

go env

GOENV="/Users/matt/Library/Application Support/go/env"

What did you do?

Built gopls 0.12.4 with 1.20.5. Ran "gopls -v". Crashes immediately. Things were working fine on beta 2. Now, normally, I'd just wait because this is a beta. But, I always get worried when stuff like this happens, so I figured I'd at least make you aware.

Hi, just to be sure I understand, these are the steps you followed:

  1. install macOS 14 beta 3 (
  2. build gopls@v0.12.4 (latest), using the pre-compiled mac binaries for go 1.20.5
  3. run gopls -v: crash

Is that right? Is there any output before the crash?

Copy link

Those are the steps I followed. But, I had first tried a version of gopls I had previously built with an earlier Go version/macOS and that also wasn't able to launch.

All combinations produced the same output:

fatal: morestack on g0

findleyr commented Jul 6, 2023

Thanks again (and sorry I missed that you'd already included the output).

CC @golang/runtime for awareness. I'm not sure if this is something we'd normally escalate to Apple.

Are you experiencing this type of problem with other Go binaries?

So far, I have not seen this occur with any other go binaries, but my testing has been pretty limited. I've also filed a bug with Apple about it.

prattmic commented Jul 6, 2023

Would it be possible for you to clone, checkout tag go1.20.5 and then run src/all.bash to run all of the Go tests to see if any of those fail?

Just ran them, and in fact, they fail.

Most of the errors in #61190 (comment) should be addressed with CL stack . I think they are caused by the (buggy or intentional or a mixture of) behavior changes of Apple's new linker. What version of the C toolchain and Xcode are you using? Could you share the output of ld -v? (I thought the new Apple linker has not been made default, maybe it does?)

fatal: morestack on g0

This is more concerning. Does this occur only with previously-built binaries, or it also occurs with new binaries?

I'll update my macOS machine to the beta and see tonight...

Thanks. I found that while ld -v still shows the old linker, the C compiler automatically switches to the new one. cc -Wl,-v would print something like

I filed #61229 for the linker issue. Let's keep this issue for the fatal: morestack on g0 failure and gopls doesn't run. For a failing binary, do you know what version of the Go toolchain was used to build it? (go version <binary> may be helpful.) If you know the C toolchain version that would be even better. Thanks!

Copy link

I changed a few things while trying to get it working. I'm now building with 1.20.5. What information can I provide to help understand the C toolchain? I've installed Xcode 15 beta 3. I ran your cc command, which seems slightly unhappy on my machine...

I'm now building with 1.20.5.

Does it work? Or still crash?

I ran your cc command, which seems slightly unhappy on my machine...

That command is expected to fail, no worries. @(#)PROGRAM:ld PROJECT:dyld-1009.5 is the version number.

Do you still have the binary that fails with fatal: morestack on g0? If so, what is the Go toolchain version that builds the binary (run go version <binary>)? And do you know/remember the C toolchain version that builds the binary?

Copy link

mattmassicotte commented Jul 10, 2023

It crashes when built with 1.20.5, in the same way. I've rebuilt in numerous times, and it always crashes. I tracked down a previous copy I built (built on different OS, toolchain, and Go version) and it runs ok.

How exactly can I get the C toolchain version that you are looking for? I just use whatever comes packaged with Xcode. Currently using Xcode 15 beta 3.

Copy link

Thanks. If it is a newly built binary crashing, then nothing more needed to find out the C toolchain version. It is Xcode 15 beta 3, which is sufficient.

Could you confirm that gopls is the binary that is crashing, and other binaries don't? Thanks.

Just want to point out that this isn't just an issue for macOS 14. 😞

I have macOS 13.4.1 but the latest beta version of Xcode CommandLineTools installed as it was suggested via the mac software update tool. Not sure why it's installing beta versions of xcode tools (I didn't realise until I hit this issue)

@AverageMarcus what is the failure you see? gopls crash, or something else? Thanks.

For me it was when trying to build my own codebase but with related issue.

The actual error I got was:

The problem seems to have been introduced (as far as I can tell) in the latest xcode Command Line Tools beta.

@AverageMarcus thanks. See issue #61229. The CLs linked there should include a workaround. You're welcome to try that and let us know if it still fails. Thanks.

Copy link

Oh nice! I didn't see that one. Thanks.

Copy link

I'm able to reproduce to gopls crash, linking with the new Apple's linker ld-prime (even running on macOS 13). It appears CLs linked at #61229 also fix this (I haven't identified which CL matters most). Thanks.

The morestack on g0 failure is from an infinite recursion

^C* thread #1, queue = '', stop reason = EXC_BREAKPOINT (code=EXC_I386_BPT, subcode=0x0)
  * frame #0: 0x0000000100075102 gopls`go:buildid + 457090

    frame #9: 0x000000010005d705 gopls`runtime.findfunc + 261

which looks like runtime func table is probably corrupted...

I found that some relocations are resolved to wrong addresses by the new system linker ld-prime. E.g. a field in runtime.firstmoduledata is expected to point to runtime.pclntab+0x334620 (which is what we have in the object file passed to Apple's linker), but in the executable it points to runtime.pclntab+0xa33c0. I haven't been able to identify a pattern.

This causes the runtime func table to be incorrect, which causes the runtime to fail to verify the table and fall into infinite recursion at start.

CLs linked at #61229 changes to use a different form of relocation, which is probably what "fixes" the issue.

@cherrymui I’m currently facing this issue in my machine. If you can provide steps to test your changes I can give it a shot. 🙏 Thanks!

Thanks @AverageMarcus, downgrading worked for me. I couldn't see a work around described in any of the linked CLs.

@wtfiscrq issue #61229 linked a number of CLs. If you want to test you can checkout them and build a new Go toolchain. One way of doing it is git fetch refs/changes/55/511355/2 && git checkout FETCH_HEAD then run make.bash in GOROOT/src.

@bobdoah the CLs include workarounds in the Go toolchain. You need to checkout the CLs and build a new Go toolchain (as mentioned above). If you don't want to build the Go toolchain yourself, here are some other workarounds:
go build -ldflags="-extldflags=-Wl,-ld64" - force using the old Apple linker (update: in Xcode 15 beta 5 the flag is switched to -ld_classic, so the workaround is go build -ldflags="-extldflags=-Wl,-ld_classic")
go build -ldflags=-linkmode=internal - force internal linking, don't use Apple linker at all

I submitted a few CLs to the master branch. Now it seems to work fine with Go tip on Intel Mac. Note that you'll need to build PIE binary with go build -buildmode=pie, as non-PIE build is broken in the new Apple linker.

It still fails on ARM64 Mac. Some CLs linked at #61229 will work around it, but not yet submitted. One way to checkout the CLs are

% go install
% gotip download 511355

The run gotip as the go command, such as gotip build.

The same problem happens with me when running gopls from VS Code. Here is what I have worked around while waiting for an official fix.

Delete the crashed version of gopls from GOPATH (the <GOPATH>/bin/gopls file), then install another gopls package using homebrew

brew install gopls

You can check whether it is installed successfully by using the command gopls version (restart your terminal if needed)

Finally, copy gopls executable file from your brew path (default is /opt/homebrew/bin/gopls, or you can run the command which gopls to check that info) to your GOPATH, which will be later read by VS Code.

cp <HOMEBREW_PATH>/bin/gopls <GOPATH>/bin/gopls

Restart VS Code and done.

Thanks @annguyen17-tiki ,this worked for me :)

I have two M1 MBP, both on most recent Sonoma Beta, with go version go1.21.0 darwin/arm64. I'm having trouble with one of the machine when running gopls version crashes showing fatal: morestack on g0. however on the other machine, everything seems fine.

I'm willing to check log/versions on my laptops if this would help on tracing the issue.

@annguyen17-tiki This did not work for me. Every time I open VS Code after copying the executable from homebrew, it does:

Tools environment: GOPATH=/Users/me/go
Installing 1 tool at /Users/me/go/bin in module mode.

I've already copied it there, why does it always try to replace it? and it always replaces it with a broken version.

I also can't downgrade the XCode tools version. The download page didn't work, and wants me to pay $99 to be an Apple Developer??????

I think the bug is fixed in Xcode 15 beta 6. With beta 6, gopls builds and runs fine with Go tip, 1.21.0, and 1.20.7, both on ARM64 and AMD64. So I think we are done with this. If one still sees a failure, feel free to comment. Thanks.
