Description Brian G. Anderson 2005-05-17 01:43:33 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.8) Gecko/20050512 Fedora/1.0.4-2 Firefox/1.0.4

Description of problem:
I'm running FC4T3 using blender from fedora extras.  I was running through the blender documentation doing the "Your first animation in 30+30 minutes".  At the end of the "posing" section (the seond to last) one is instructed to view the animation by doing Alt-A.  Doing this causes blender to seg fault.

I ran it under gdb and got this info

Program received signal SIGSEGV, Segmentation fault.
[Switching to Thread -1208596800 (LWP 5286)]
0x0393ca25 in __gnu_cxx::__pool<true>::_M_reclaim_block ()
   from /usr/lib/libstdc++.so.6

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.do blender animation tutorial 
2.set up armiture and skin and poses for 40 frames
3.run Alt-A to view animation.

Actual Results:  seg fault

Expected Results:  animation preview

There will soon be a blender-2.37-2 in the FE4 repository.  If you're impatient
it is presently here:

Would you please retest with this version and report whether the crash still occurs?
Comment 2 Michael Schwendt 2005-07-10 17:17:20 EDT
On Fedora Core Development, "yum install blender" installed an old
blender-2.35-1, which causes trouble here while trying briefly to get a more
detailed traceback. Before I'm going to switch to FE4, I see this during start:

$ blender 
Could not find platform independent libraries <prefix>
Could not find platform dependent libraries <exec_prefix>
Consider setting $PYTHONHOME to <prefix>[:<exec_prefix>]
'import site' failed; use -v for traceback
No installed Python found.
Only built-in modules are available.  Some scripts may not run.
Continuing happily.

And this in gdb:

Program received signal SIGFPE, Arithmetic exception.
[Switching to Thread -1208964672 (LWP 14801)]
0x00a96dfc in _mesa_test_os_sse_exception_support ()
   from /usr/X11R6/lib/modules/dri/mga_dri.so

Inside Blender, the entire GUI flickers heavily. Widget colouring is corrupted.
Menus appear transparent. Close to unusable. Needs a rebuild. It was last built
Dec 2004.

Comment 3 Michael Schwendt 2005-07-11 03:21:35 EDT
With blender-2.37-2, I see the same heavy GUI flickering. Hence I can't be of
any help trying to get a more detailed backtrace. One observation, though.
Loading example files and Alt+A gives animations and doesn't crash. Makes me
assume it's not a general problem, but think that the 2.35-1 binary from Dec
2004 was also too old for FC4T3.
Comment 4 Jochen Schmitt 2006-02-12 13:25:26 EST
Can you update to blender 2.41 and try again.

Comment 5 Hans de Goede 2006-11-13 07:44:55 EST
I'm doing some FE bug triaging, perhaps this bug should be closed due to lack of
the original reporter, esp. since you cannot reproduce it?
Comment 6 Jochen Schmitt 2007-07-02 12:21:34 EDT
OK, I hope, the reported bug may fixed in the current version of blender. So I
will close this bug.

I the issue persist, the bug may be reopen.
