Segmentation fault on exiting program


#1

Hi,

I have been using wxRuby for a while now, but hit a problem on
upgrading. I
have ruby1.9.1p129 installed, along with wxruby 2.0.0. My system is
Ubuntu
8.10, with wxWidgets 2.8-0 from the repository.

Whenever I exit an application, I get an error message. My programs
seem to
work fine, it’s just the error as you exit which is irritating. I’ve
not
noticed this with any non-wxruby ruby programs. Has anyone else come
across
the same problem? Is there a fix?

many thanks,

Peter.

For instance, the following program:

require ‘wx’

class SimpleFrame < Wx::Frame
def initialize
super(nil, :title => “Simple Frame Title”)
end
end

Wx::App.run do
SimpleFrame.new.show
end

$ ruby simple-frame.rb

Thanks for the report. I’m seeing the same thing with Ruby 1.9 on my
Ubuntu machine, haven’t quite figured out why yet. I will definitely
want to fix this for the upcoming 2.0.1 release.

I suspect a binary incompatibility introduced by the ruby1.9.1p129
related with native extensions.

With ruby1.9.1p0, I haven’t noticed such kind of problems on Ubuntu
8.10 and wxRuby-2.0.
I have upgraded to Ubuntu 9.04 recently, and I just run the test case
still with ruby1.9.1p0 and wxRuby-2.0 without any problem.

Conversely, on my MinGW installation, I have upgraded to ruby1.9.1p129
and I’ve noticed that the corresponding wxRuby-2.0 binary gem (built
with ruby1.9.1p0) does not work at all. I’ve just rebuilt the
wxRuby-2.0 lib with ruby1.9.1p129 and then everything works again.

Can you try to rebuild wxRuby ?

Anyway, I will check soon what I suspect on Ubuntu 9.10 :

  • upgrade to ruby1.9.1p129 then try your test case with the wxRuby-2.0
    binary gem : the error at the exit should occur
  • rebuild wxRuby-2.0 for ruby1.9.1p129 and see if the error doesn’t
    occur any more.

Cheers.

I was wrong …

No error at the exit.
Alex has more luck than me :slight_smile:

So the key could be to upgrade Ubuntu ?

Thanks for exploring this. I tried the binary gem when I upgraded ruby
to 1.9.1, and I got the same problem on both p129 and an earlier
release.

cheers,

Peter.
