nedit gives bus error and core dumps

Fresh install on 11i +june 2007 support+ bundles on J5600

Downloaded and installed nedit 5.5 binaries from the HPUX porting site.

When I launch nedit, it opens for a specond then closes with a bus error and core dumps.

Can someone tell me what the problem is?

Re: nedit gives bus error and core dumps

Hi Norman,

The nedit binaries compiled from the HPUX porting site are compiled on PA-RISC 2.0. Your J5600 has PA-RISC 1.2 based chips.

Re: nedit gives bus error and core dumps

There are different versions, did you use the right one?

I guess your 11i is 11iv1 (11.11) - did you download this one:

Hope this helps!
Regards
Torsten.

Re: nedit gives bus error and core dumps

I'm a little suprised there aren't any run time dependancys.

Nothing in the readme file about compatibility with HPUX, only note for HPUX has to do with setting of colors.

I'm sure you grabbed the right version. 11.23 or 11.31?
I guess I would double check that.

Looking at the tested platforms your's isn't listed. But I don't know that if thats a big deal.

The only note I found in the installation is this:
Notes:

* This is a dying breed - a Motif application ! Unfortunately, HP do not ship
X11R6 or Motif 2.1 includes as standard with HP-UX 11.X - you must
install the C/C++ Developer's Bundle to get them.

I'm guessing thats just at build time that that takes into effect?

Any chance you can try to compile yourself to make sure all is good? Only two buildtime deps.

Re: nedit gives bus error and core dumps

You can try to get it from here:

http://gd.tuwien.ac.at/editors/nedit/NEdit/v5_5/executables/

Maybe there is a version compiled for your CPU.

Test this with "file" command - should return

PA-RISC1.1 shared executable

Hope this helps!
Regards
Torsten.

Re: nedit gives bus error and core dumps

I'm running 11.11. I installed the nedit from

http://gd.tuwien.ac.at/editors/nedit/NEdit/v5_5/executables

Ran files on nedit which reported PA-RISC1.1

Nedit now works. I guess there is a difference as the 5.5 from the hpux porting archives would not run.

Re: nedit gives bus error and core dumps

But your CPU is in fact a PA-8600 (PA-RISC 2.0), so the executable from the post I sent earlier should work too.
Did you try this?

Anyway, if nedit works now, it's OK.

BTW, you'll probably find "jedit" usefull too.

Hope this helps!

Torsten.

>closes with a bus error and core dumps.

>Robert-Jan: Your J5600 has PA-RISC 1.2 based chips.

You wouldn't be able to get a bus error if you have the wrong architecture.

>Dave: HP do not ship X11R6 or Motif 2.1 includes as standard with HP-UX 11.X - you must install the C/C++ Developer's Bundle to get them.

This isn't true. You can download them. See Steven's link here:
