 Hi All,

   Usually we use  pthread_mutexattr_setpshared to share different
mutex with different process. But I have checked the bionic libc
implementation. It only support PTHREAD_PROCESS_PRIVATE setting.
Does it mean android does not support mutex shared between different
processes?

pthread.c in android/bionic/libc/bionic

772 int pthread_mutexattr_setpshared(pthread_mutexattr_t *attr, int
pshared)
 773 {
 774     if (!attr)
 775         return EINVAL;
 776
 777     return (pshared == PTHREAD_PROCESS_PRIVATE) ? 0 : ENOTSUP;
 778 }


Thanks

 Perhaps you can try to use a semaphore file instead?

 What is the use case for a shared mutex?

We use shared mutex for IPC shared process memory. See AudioTrack/
AudioFlinger for sample code. In the case, the sharing works because
the mutex is in the shared memory and both process have access to it.
