Ticket #17503 (closed defect: worksforme)
gtk2 dies on Tiger/1.6.0 but works on Tiger/1.7.0
|Reported by:||north@…||Owned by:||nox@…|
I hesitate to mention this but it might be useful. Three different attempts at building gtk2 on Tiger/Developer2.5 with macports 1.6.0 yielded a binary that would not run gtk apps; it simply reported "Bus Error" and died gracefully.
The interesting thing is I downloaded the 1.7.0 Beta 1 source and the resultant gtk2 runs gtk apps fine on the same setup. Thumbs up for 1.7.0 so far.
(Failed 1.6.0 attempts were "with a bunch of other stuff already in place," cleaning out ports and starting again building only gtk2 and its dependencies, and then building each dependency first to avoid complications caused by perl5 and perl5.8 colliding).
- Owner changed from macports-tickets@… to nox@…
- Port set to gtk2
- Status changed from new to closed
- Resolution set to worksforme
