wings segmentation fault at startup
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:33 EST
Description of problem:
Want to tryout Wings 3D. Wings dies with a segmentation fault at startup.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
[meisel@localhost ~]$ rpm -q wings
[meisel@localhost ~]$ rpm -qa | grep erlang
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start the wings shortcut "graphics/Wings 3D" -> dies without output
2. Start wings in a console -> segmentation fault output
[meisel@localhost ~]$ wings
Erlang (BEAM) emulator version 5.5 [source] [async-threads:0] [hipe]
Eshell V5.5 (abort with ^G)
1> Trying OpenGL modes
Actual: RGBA: 2 16 16 16 Depth: 16 Stencil: 16 Accum: 16 16 16 16
A window with the programm should popup
The stable download from http://www.wings3d.com/ works
[meisel@localhost ~]$ sh wings-0.98.32a-linux.run
Verifying archive integrity... All good.
Installing Wings 3D 0.98.32a in /home/meisel/wings-0.98.32a
[meisel@localhost wings-0.98.32a]$ sh wings

My first bug report. I hope there are enough informations for you. And sorry for
my bad english ^_^
Yes, I know of this. The problem is the new version of Erlang used
to build against. Strangely I noticed the bug only AFTER the builds
were already in the repositories. I hope, that with a new version
of the ESDL library will fix this soon. Until then, the only
thing you can do is use a previous version of wings and Erlang.
I created a compat-erlang package with the previous version of erlang
and rebuild wings against it. This should work now. Please try this.
The package should hit the repositories in the next few days.
Hello, sorry for my late answer. Yes, with your last updates, wings is working
again. Thank you
