RHEL2.1: xemacs crashes with errata
Last modified: 2015-01-07 19:02:48 EST
Description of problem:
I installed AS2.1 from CD, then updated to the beta errata. I then
tried to run xemacs from a GNOME session (I wanted to view info
pages), and I got the soon-to-be-attached crash.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. run 'xemacs' in a gnome terminal under X
I like pie.
Created attachment 89111 [details]
crash log of starting 'xemacs'
Is a core dump file generated?
No core dump file is generated.
Does it run ok for you in a tty ("xemacs -nw")?
(Btw, just in case it wasn't obvious, the solution is just to rebuild
Just a far-fetched hunch, but probably the core file isn't created
because of core files being disabled by default (on RHL that is, I
don't know about RHEL). "ulimit -c unlimited" could help...
We now have a workaround for this for ia64 (linking without
-dynamic-export) so this should be easy to fix for the next
updates release. :)
An errata has been issued which should help the problem
described in this bug report. This report is therefore being
closed with a resolution of ERRATA. For more information
