#54436 new defect

tk +quartz variant crashes with python 2.7.13 and py27-tkinter on OSX10.12.5

Reported by: vsuorant (Ville) Owned by:

Component: ports Version:
Keywords: Cc: mojca (Mojca Miklavec)
Port: tk


How to reproduce:

Install python 2.7.13 using MacPorts

Install tk +quartz variant using MacPorts

Install py27-tkinter using MacPorts

Start python and execute:

import Tkinter

This will result in "Abort trap: 6"

This process has worked on OSX10.11 and also fairly recently on OSX10.12.

Removing "--enable-aqua" from the configuration arguments gets rid of the crash but disables other necessary functionality.

-x11 variant doesn't crash.

It is still not clear to me what causes the crash but using the 8.6.7-rc candidate packages as described here: fixes the problem.
