Last modified: 2012-05-12 21:59:20 EDT
Description of problem:
glaxium will sometimes crash when doing a benchmark or simply playing. The crash is due to a segmentation violation.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
always (on my 2 systems with NVidia based graphic cards)
Steps to Reproduce:
1. start glaxium
2. press F3 to start the benchmark or press space to play the game
A "Segmentation fault" occurs.
Either the benchmark or the game should have started.

A patch for this bug
The root cause of the bug turned out to be an index out of bounds access to the fighter2_meshes array in fighter2.cpp. Although there are only 578 faces in the array the loop starting at fighter2.cpp:90 tries to run through 587 faces. See also the file "modeles/fighter2.c".
An even better patch would make all this depend on the size of the fighter2_meshes array itself.
Thanks for the bug report and the patch! I'm preparing an updated version of glaxium incorporating your fix now.
