I have a EGL app. After downloading a executable update, I close the app and execute a execl. The new instance crashes when calling bcm_host_init();

I checked, and the call to bcm_host_deinit(); is being called before the execl is made.

What can I do to restart the app? Why does bcm_host_init() crash?


the solution was using vc_display_close(...) before the fork. bcm_host_deinit(); does nothing...
