Title: glShaderSource() causes crash
Post by: noblex on July 19, 2017, 14:11:22
Hello, this portion of code cause my program to throw an EXCEPTION_ACCESS_VIOLATION.

public Shader(String filename){
        Log.d(TAG, "Init " + filename);
        String filePath = GlobalVariables.SHA_PATH + filename;
        String vsPath = filePath + ".vs";
        String fsPath = filePath + ".fs";

        if( !(new File(vsPath).exists() )){
            Log.wtf(TAG, "Wrong filename: " + filename);
        if( !(new File(fsPath).exists() )){
            Log.wtf(TAG, "Wrong filename: " + filename);

        program = glCreateProgram();

        vertexShader = glCreateShader(GL_VERTEX_SHADER);
        glShaderSource(vertexShader, readFile(vsPath));
        if(glGetShaderi(vertexShader, GL_COMPILE_STATUS) != 1){
            Log.wtf(TAG, "Cannot compile vertex shader " + filename + " " + glGetShaderInfoLog(vertexShader));

        fragmentShader = glCreateShader(GL_FRAGMENT_SHADER);
        glShaderSource(fragmentShader, readFile(fsPath));
        if(glGetShaderi(fragmentShader, GL_COMPILE_STATUS) != 1){
            Log.wtf(TAG, "Cannot compile fragment shader " + filename + " " + glGetShaderInfoLog(fragmentShader));

        glAttachShader(program, vertexShader);
        glAttachShader(program, fragmentShader);

        glBindAttribLocation(program, 0, "vertices");
        //glBindAttribLocation(program, 1, "textures");

        if(glGetProgrami(program, GL_LINK_STATUS)!=1){
            Log.wtf(TAG, "Cannot link program " + filename + " " + glGetProgramInfoLog(program));

        if(glGetProgrami(program, GL_VALIDATE_STATUS)!=1){
            Log.wtf(TAG, "Cannot validate program " + filename + " " + glGetProgramInfoLog(program));


The crash is on instrunction glShaderSource().

This is the crash dump:

What could it be? Any solution?

You're either calling a deprecated function in a core profile OpenGL context, or a function from an OpenGL version or extension that is not supported by your driver. I doubt it's glShaderSource (glCreateProgram & glCreateShader would fail as well). Open the hs_err_pid5032.log file and see if you can find that last native method called.

It's also possible that you're calling OpenGL functions in a thread with no OpenGL context current.
