Description Need Real Name 2002-05-24 00:05:57 UTC

Description of problem:
VariCAD ran under 7.2 without problems. I upgraded to 7.3 and it no
longer runs . I corrected the permissions of the kde2-compat libraries per the
bug report and VariCAD instructions and pointed varicad to the kdecompat
libraries. When it is run it give a SIGSEV 11 error under kde with the following
(no debugging symbols found)...[New Thread 1024 (LWP 2204)]
0x420b4769 in wait4 () from /lib/i686/libc.so.6
#0  0x420b4769 in wait4 () from /lib/i686/libc.so.6

#3  0x410b4f75 in pthread_sighandler () from /lib/i686/libpthread.so.0
#4  <signal handler called>

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.run /usr/bin/varicad

Actual Results:  program opens with logo and then crashes.

Expected Results:  Program should have opened and been stable

Additional info:

Was fine under kde 2.2 and RedHat 7.2. Upgrade resulted in the problem and seems
to be related to the kde 2 compatible libraries which appear not to be compatible.

Can you please check if this is the same bug as  
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=64668 ?  
Does it work if you fix the permissions with   
find /usr/lib/kde2-compat -type d -exec chmod a+x {} \;

Comment 3 Need Real Name 2002-07-12 21:09:26 UTC
No this is not the same as bug 64688. The fix does not correct the problem.

Comment 4 Need Real Name 2002-09-28 16:21:05 UTC
Since this isn't closed, I would like guidance as to where to take it next.
VariCAD had me do an strace and they say the results show the problem is not in
VariCAD, but in something external to VariCAD, possibly OpenGL. I have no idea
what to do. I have a Matrox G400 video card and other programs requiring OpenGL
(like AC3D) run fine. Where would be the correct place to post this problem
since it appears to be a one of a kind issue? Right now I am trying to learn
other CAD programs to replace VariCAD, and have tried Octree, Cycas, and ohters,
but none provide me with the ease of VariCAD.  Any suggestions on where to take
this would be appreciated. I cannot find an opengl section on bugzilla under RedHat.

Comment 5 Ngo Than 2002-11-07 23:42:47 UTC
it's a close source. You should download a new version of VariCAD from

There is a VariCAD version for RHL 7.2/7.3/8.0 here. Please get the correct
version, it should work for you.
