Description Finn Aarup Nielsen 2001-05-01 17:40:05 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/4.76 [en] (X11; U; Linux 2.4.2-2 i686) xdvi makes a segmentation fault after it has read a DVI-file unsuccesfully and the xdvi window has been focused two times. An unsuccesful read appear when latex is compiling a tex-file to a DVI-file (xdvi reports it as "DVI file corrupted"). Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. latex largefile.tex 2. xdvi largefile.dvi 3. latex largefile.tex 4. (while latex is running) Mouse focus in xdvi -> "DVI file corrupted" (normal behavior) 5. Mouse unfocus xdvi 6. Mouse focus in xdvi -> "segmentation fault" Actual Results: xdvi core dumps Expected Results: xdvi should stay open (not crash). Reporting "DVI file corrupted" is expected. Not a problem with Redhat 7.0 and 6.2

I expect that this is sensitive to the exact stage of processing the file. Can you supply a partially-generated DVI file that exhibits this behaviour?

The .dvi file is empty while latex is running. $ xdvi some.dvi & $ > some.dvi Two clicks on "Reread" and xdvi crashes with a "segmentation fault".
Comment 3 Tim Waugh 2001-09-30 21:11:10 UTC
It works fine for me here. Perhaps it depends on the original DVI file 'some.dvi'. (I used the printconf test page DVI file.)

I have this problem with all DVI files. $ rpm -qf `which xdvi.bin` tetex-xdvi-1.0.7-15 $ cp /usr/share/printconf/tests/testpage.dvi . $ xdvi.bin testpage.dvi & # Everything works fine. $ > testpage.dvi # First click on "Reread" -> "Not a DVI file." # Second click on "Reread" -> "segmentation fault"
Comment 5 Tim Waugh 2001-10-01 09:38:35 UTC
Okay, I can reproduce this with tetex-1.0.7-15. This seems to be already fixed in tetex-1.0.7-32, but I'm not sure which change fixed it.
