If the gap_packages optional package is installed, there is some code enabled in sage.coding.linear_code which uses the Guava package. However, some of the tests that use it fail on Cygwin with:

sage -t --long src/sage/coding/
File "src/sage/coding/", line 3134, in sage.coding.linear_code.AbstractLinearCode.weight_distribution
Failed example:
    C.weight_distribution(algorithm="leon")   # optional - gap_packages (Guava package)
Exception raised:
    Traceback (most recent call last):

      File "/home/embray/src/sagemath/sage/local/lib/python2.7/", line 223, in check_output
        raise CalledProcessError(retcode, cmd, output=output)
    CalledProcessError: Command '['/home/embray/src/sagemath/sage/local/share/gap/pkg/guava-3.14/bin/x86_64-unknown-cygwin-default64/wtdist', '/home/embray/.sage/temp/NAVI-Brick/6764/tmp_7ZlhoX::code']' returned non-zero exit status -11

The "exit status -11" indicates a segmentation fault in the wtdist program, whatever that is.

Since gap_packages is an optional package not installed by default I don't think this is urgent, but it would be good to find out what's going on.

Originally reported in #26930.

Milestone: sage-8.8

As the Sage-8.8 release milestone is pending, we should delete the sage-8.8 milestone for tickets that are not actively being worked on or that still require significant work to move forward. If you feel that this ticket should be included in the next Sage release at the soonest please set its milestone to the next release milestone (sage-8.9).

Note: See TracTickets for help on using tickets.
