Re: FXRuby - textedit.rb example crash problem


I am writing a GUI. I need some bigger subfield with an editor in
it. So I tried to incorporate the textedit.rb example
(FXRuby-1.6.0,fox-1.4.33,Ruby 1.8.4).

FXRuby 1.6 requires FOX 1.6.5 or later and won’t work with FOX 1.4.33.
I’m a little curious about how you managed to compile FXRuby-1.6.0
against fox-1.4.33 in the first place…

You’re right, I realize just now that I should have upgraded FOX in the
first place. Yet the installation just worked using configure-make-make
for FOX and ruby setup.rb config etc.

I only upgraded in the first place because when I use FXRuby, I
quite frequently get Segmentation faults under Cygwin. This
happens for instance when calling foxGUib (in Linux, that’s ok). I
this already, and it seems that it’s somehow the fault of FXRuby and
together, but nobody knew anything more specific.

But when I enter text in it and use a backspace to
correct some typo, the program immediately stops
with error: FXRbText::extractText : bad argument (in Redhat Linux),
if I use it under Cygwin(Windows XP), it crashes after entering the first
letter into the editor window (see error file below).
What’s wrong here?

Not sure, but it sounds like something you might want to file a bug
report about:

I’ll still experiment a bit to find out a good error description… and
submit a bug report.



For the time being, I’d recommend backing off to FXRuby 1.4, which is
the stable release of FXRuby.
