Bus Error (coredump)

HI,

I have been developing an application using GTK and have been executing with no problems. I am using an X emulation tool (Go-Global) to get access to my X desktop from my Windows machine. I executed the application with no problems but when I executed it again I get a bus error. I changed nothing between executions. When I ssh into my machine and execute the application it works just fine. I'm at a loss as to why it works via ssh (ie a terminal session) but won't work via an X session.

Regards,
Tim

Re: Bus Error (coredump)

does this program you are running from your linux box use X? have you done an xhost to allow incomming and exported your display? or are you running an X session and a terminal window in that session and running the command from there?

Re: Bus Error (coredump)

Make sure you have recent patches installed for X.

There are a lot of examples of problems similar to yours. Most have been solved via patch updates or reinstallation of corrupted files.

Re: Bus Error (coredump)

This just got stranger of an error. As suggested I added the patches available for X11 from HP. That didn't seem to help. So I added a custom icon in SAM and that seems to work just fine. The only time it crashes is when I execute it from the command line???? It's very strange :-|

Re: Bus Error (coredump)

One more thing, I just executed the command from an HP Term and it works too. So it seems the problem is with the dtterm and executing via dtterm.
