Description

When launching any scummvm game, I get the following message at the command line, with 0.5.1 or CVS snapshots. 0.5.1 worked with RedHat 9 but stopped working with Fedora Core 1, so I believe this is a configuration problem. But where do I start looking?

Looking for tentacle Trying to start game 'Day Of The Tentacle' Fatal signal: Segmentation Fault (SDL Parachute Deployed)

What version of SDL? What kind of machine?

comment:2 by SF/khalek, 17 years ago

Also it would be most useful if you could run via gdb and provide a backtrace and/or the last bit out of output from strace.

comment:3 by SF/cheeth, 17 years ago

This is a P4 running a fairly standard Fedora Core 1 install, the only big change from the default being that it's been upgraded to KDE 3.2.

SDL (RPM) version=SDL-1.2.5-9

I'd need a serious gdb tutorial before I could run this via gdb. I can run the shell script but I get to the gdb input prompt and am quickly lost. Valgrind didn't show anything bad.

The shell script for starting up is: cd /home/cheeth/scumm/dott scummvm -p/home/cheeth/scumm/dott/ tentacle

To get a backtrace via gdb do the following: gdb /path/to/executable run arg1 arg2 etc

Then finally when it segfaults type "bt" to get a backtrace.

comment:5 by SF/cheeth, 17 years ago

Okay, thanks for the advice! And the answer is...aRTS! Apparently it you can't disable aRTS the same way as you used to. In fact, I'm not sure there's a "normal" way to kill it at all. But that's a KDE problem.

Manually killing the aRTS PID fixes everything.

comment:6 by SF/khalek, 17 years ago

So everything works fine when its not running? Can we close this bug now?

comment:7 by SF/cheeth, 17 years ago

Yes, please go ahead and close this. For historical purposes, the KDE bug is: http://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=74264
