SIGSEGV when calling vrapi_SubmitFrame2()

pedro.boechat

I'm porting a game to Quest and so part of my work is to interface the engine's Vulkan renderer w/ the Oculus Mobile SDK.

I believe I'm setting up the SDK correctly (I'm following the examples and the guidelines from Oculus' docs) but still I'm getting a nasty error when trying to submit a frame.

Here's a high-level list of the things I'm currently doing:

  • I initialize the API.
  • I create a Vulkan instance and device w/ the expected extensions.
  • I acquire per-eye swapchains and get Vulkan handlers for each of their images.
  • I setup framebuffers and renderpasses using those images.
  • I acquire a native android window.
  • I enter VR mode (making sure the app is resumed).

Then at the end of my render loop I setup an ovrSubmitFrameDesc and then call vrapi_SubmitFrame2(). I'm also making sure I only call vrapi_SubmitFrame2() after all work has been submitted to the GPU (I'm currently using a fence on my work queues).

However, as I mentioned before, the call to vrapi_SubmitFrame2() fails. It currently raises a SIGSEGV inside Quest's Vulkan driver:

backtrace:
      #00 pc 000000000010b2d8  /vendor/lib64/hw/vulkan.kona.so (!!!0000!b78ad09fc24eab751708d0a80613cf!09c6a36!+24) (BuildId: cc478ff923cc27b87607fb1f1a3b87ef)

The fact that the error is happening at an internal vkQueueSubmit() call makes me think that this is somehow related to the way I'm using command queues. But even if I set a separated queue as the synchronization queue and don't do anything with it (i.e., don't submit any command to it) I still get the same error.

Does anybody have an idea of what I could be doing wrong?

PS (1), I've tried to use a blank layer, instead of a proper projection layer, just to see if I could get past that point, but that didn't help.

PS (2), I'm getting no errors from the validation layer.

PS (3), the thread in which I enter VR mode is the same thread in which I'm calling vrapi_SubmitFrame2().

Let me start this by asking: who do you think would win, 18 years of experience in software development or this bad boi here '&'?

 

The mystery of SIGSEGV being raised from vrapi_SubmitFrame2() was nothing more than a stupid usage of the address-of operator when setting OVR's synchronization queue:

 

    vpapi_DefaultModeParmsVulkan(&m_java, (long long)&queueHandle);


That line should have been written as:

 

    vpapi_DefaultModeParmsVulkan(&m_java, (long)queueHandle);
