bzflag segfaults on startup
Last modified: 2008-07-23 03:19:10 EDT
Description of problem:
bzflag segfaults upon startup.
[tonyb@tonybox ~]$ rpm -qi bzflag
Name : bzflag Relocations: (not relocatable)
Version : 2.0.10 Vendor: Fedora Project
Release : 6.fc9 Build Date: Fri 22 Feb 2008 03:48:42
Every time for me tested on 2 different computers
Steps to Reproduce:
Screen flashes black, Segmentation Fault follows.
Created attachment 302689 [details]
reproduced, here's a backtrace w/debug info
Changing version to '9' as part of upcoming Fedora 9 GA.
More information and reason for this action is here:
*** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 443930 ***
*** Bug 447032 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***
I don't think this is actually a duplicate of 443930; that appears to be a Mesa
bug, but this appears to actually be a bzflag bug (the stack trace I get,
similar to the trace already added here, is entirely within bzflag and looks
nothing like the traces in 443930).
I've tried the mesa update listed in 443930 but bzflag still crashes for me.
I agree, this is definitely not a duplicate of either of the other two bugs
I get a similar backtrace, and would love to get this working on a stock Fedora 9.
I've seen the same thing. CPU = Intel Core2 Quad, video = Nvidia 8600.

Also, I've managed to run it on a couple of occasions. I don't know what makes
the difference, but when it does run all the menu and configuration text is
left-justified against the centre of the screen, and where there are two columns
they appear over-laid. Sorry I can't get a screenshot. However I guess that
this is also something to do with string length coming up zero. Uninitialised
just rebuild bzflag 2.0.12 (http://my.bzflag.org/w/BZFlag_2.0.12) using
slightly modified fedora spec file (http://vasile.fedoramd.org/bzflag.spec -
only thing changed is plugin patch removed). BZflag does not crash at startup.
Packages can be downloaded from http://repo.fedoramd.org/fmd/fedora/9/
I was already working on that, but I seem to have run into bug #448278 in the
meantime. Version 2.0.12 should hit updates-testing soon so that those of you
with other graphics hardware can test it.
