Access violation in skychart
Last modified: 2010-06-28 09:03:59 EDT
Description of problem:
Skychart reports this error message after its launch:
"Load zlib: Access violation.
Something go wrong during program initialization. We must now close.
Please try to reinstall the program."
I tried to remove all config files, reinstall it. without any effect.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
just install from Fedora repository.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. install skychart
2. launch it
3. error is shown
I find installing the i586 version works.
Created attachment 355439 [details]
GDB is weird, reporting call from pu_main.pas:1510 but on line 1510, there's only simple debug print.
I think the real problem are lines 1609 - 1616 in pu_main.pas:
if zlib<>0 then begin
end else zlibok:=false;
...and insufficient check for missing symbols. The const libz = 'libz.so' in u_constant.pas:558 might be source of problems as the RTL chooses 32bit library on 64bit system (wrong library search path).
This message is a reminder that Fedora 11 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 11. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora
'version' of '11'.
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 11's end of life.
Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 11 is end of life. If you
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it
against a later version of Fedora please change the 'version' of this
bug to the applicable version. If you are unable to change the version,
please add a comment here and someone will do it for you.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
The process we are following is described here:
This error is only in the 64 bit. It installs but gets an access violation when it tries to us zlib
It says: Load zlib: Access violation and shuts down.
Fedora 11 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2010-06-25. Fedora 11 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.
If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version.
Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
