Help! slickedit suddenly hang very often
« on: July 28, 2006, 02:02:25 am »
Hi, there. I've been a new user for slickedit 10.0.3 Linux version for one month. It's a great tool, helping me improve the programming efficiency a lot. However, I got troubles since last night when I was using. The slickedit IDE window continues to hang up after a couple minutes, and the CPU usage reaches almost 100%. I have to kill the process by force. The problems happens again and again and drives me mad. Can anyone give some hints on this issue?

I've tried to delete the old version and reinstall. I've also tried to install the new copy into another disk but the problem persists. Please help. Thank you so much!

What are you doing (or trying to do) when the IDE hangs on you? Whenever I see someone state "the CPU reaches 100%", most of the time the problem is in the evaluation of a mal-formed regular expression while doing a search/search and replace, or parsing the build output for errors with a custom expression. I'll post a top-level topic on the board addressing this issue in a moment.

I don't use SE on Linux very much, but perhaps others out there might have some suggestions on things to watch out for.

Malformed regex searches are not the only reason that happens.  I haven't used v11 on Linux yet, but I've seen v10 for both Linux and Windows hang for a few minutes, then come back.  Although I had a couple of times on Linux where it hung forever.  I've never reported it because I could never reliably reproduce it, but I think it was related to "Show info for symbol under mouse".

I see something similar several times a day, and I've noticed it since v10. For no apparent reason, SlickEdit will lock up and not respond to screen repaints for maybe 15-20 seconds, then it comes back completely responsive. I haven't figured out any reason for it or reliable way to reproduce it, but it happens all the time.

check background tagging:  frequency and number of files

Doesn't "background tagging" suggest a background task, that is, one that doesn't hang the GUI?

Hello,

I have a similar problem. When I start SE and rebuild my project and the compiler encounters an error SE locks up. I then have to kill the SE process (vs). When I restart SE and start a debug session before doing a rebuild everything works fine afterwards (rebuilds with compiler errors don't lock up SE).

1) start SE
2) rebuild the (non active) shared library project that contains
    an sourcecode error (--> compiler will complain).
3) SE hangs
4) In that state I can see multiple tcsh processes taking up a considerable amount of processor time (ca. 10 %) and a vs process using about 20% CPU time. With every killed SE process I get one additional tcsh process.

My platform:
- SuSE Linux 9.2
- SlickEdit for Linux 11.0.1
- Workspace containing 2 GNU C/C++ projects
  (shared library and an executable)


I can reproduce this problem reliably, so if anyone is interessted in some log files, let me know.

Hi jaykay,

This is a different issue and there's a fix for this.  You can find the fix file and relevant information at this post:  http://community.slickedit.com/index.php?topic=126.msg642#msg642

Post if this doesn't solve the problem for you.

Best,
SlickEdit Support

SEUserCS,

There are a number of things that could be causing this for you so here are a number of questions that will get us started in the right direction. 

Please send your answers to support@slickedit.com :

Do you remember if you were typing ".", "->", space, or open paren when this happened?
Do you remember what it was that you might have been doing when you see the lock-up?  Build, Debug, Project setup, coding?
What language are you working in?
    And you've created a Workspace and Project within SlickEdit correct?
    How big is the project?  (5, 50, 500, 5000 source files?  Just an "about" number so we have an idea what we're dealing with.)
    Where are your source files located?  Local?  Network?  Version Control?

Also include the information from Help-->About SlickEdit-->"Program Information" tab-->Copy to Clipboard.

Thanks,
SlickEdit Support

Hi SlickEdit Support,

thanks for the reply. Replacing the slickedit\macros\error.e with the version that you provided and reloading it, solved the problem.

Thanks again

Regards
