Default Rgg make context and stack initialization !

Hello All,

I am trying to create my own library of threads.

I got stuck with segmentation fault..

I need your help wuth this..

here is a code snippet...
< file mthread.c >

#include "mythread.h"
#include <malloc.h>
#include <stdio.h>
#define FIBER_STACK 2048
mythread_t T1;

int mythread_create(mythread_t *new_thread_ID,
mythread_attr_t *attr,
void * (*start_func)(void *),
void *arg)
// Get the current execution context
mythread_t t2 ;
t2 = (mythread_t)new_thread_ID;
// Modify the context to a new stack
t2->context.uc_stack.ss_sp = malloc( SIGSTKSZ );
t2->context.uc_stack.ss_size = 2048 ; t2->context.uc_stack.ss_flags = 0;
if ( t2->context.uc_stack.ss_sp == 0 )
perror( "malloc: Could not allocate stack" );
return 0;
// Create the new context
printf( "\n Creating child fiber" );
makecontext(&t2->context,(void (*)())start_func,0);


void * display()
printf ("\n Hello \n");

int main()
mythread_t t1;
printf("\n thread creates \n");
return 0;

<End of code >

The problem i get is a segmentation fault because of the highlighted lines ( in red).
Code gets compiled and linked successfully.

On execution , i get the desired o/p but at the end it does give a segmentation fault.

Please comment.
