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 install 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 posted about this already, and it seems that it's somehow the fault of FXRuby and Cygwin talking 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: _http://rubyforge.org/tracker/?atid=1223&group_id=3... (http://rubyforge.org/tracker/?atid=1223&group_id=3...) I'll still experiment a bit to find out a good error description.... and then submit a bug report. Thanks, Axel For the time being, I'd recommend backing off to FXRuby 1.4, which is the stable release of FXRuby.
