[Beta 1] arm-linux bus errors on opening a file
« on: August 01, 2023, 10:29:54 AM »
[vs 28 beta 1 arm-linux 32bit] I installed the linux-arm version on my Raspberry Pi 400 (same as a Pi4 but packaged into a keyboard) which runs the pi version of debian bullseye. Install worked fine. Run it. Create an trivial project (maybe 10 source files) from an existing directory. Set Brief emulation. Note that Alt-E gets me to the menu bar rather than opening the edit dialog, shrug, set project, open file from the menu bar, file appears in window then about a second later SE disappears with a bus error.

Whilst I'm at it - any chance of a 64-bit arm-linux version?

I haven't reproduced this.

Is the debian bullseye image a 64 bit image?  I know of one support issue where running on a 64 bit debian on a PI4, and would get bus errors.  But a system update cleared up the problem before we got any debugging information.  And I haven't reproduced that either.

Getting a core dump would help.  If you can reproduce it, open a terminal, and run "ulimit -c unlimited" to allow coredumps, and then start up SlickEdit from that terminal, and reproduce the crash.  If you get a core dump, let us know, and we'll send the instructions on how to get it to us so I can take a look at it.

OK got core dump (took a while to force the system to put it somewhere I could find!). What now?

Other info you asked for: This is a straight 32-bit bullseye system, apt updated to current within the last week or so. I did start off trying on something 64-bit and less vanilla but trying to run vsinst simply said "required files missing" so I gave up on that.

Core was helpful. I've rebuilt the pi installer with a possible fix.  You can download it from here: https://support.slickedit.com/outbound/2800/jc44/se_28000000_linux-arm-eabihf32_beta1.tar.gz

Remove your existing beta install, and install this one and try it out.  Let me know how it goes. 

The Pi 400 looks nice, the keyboard reminds me of one of the older apple keyboards.

That doesn't crash immediately :-)

We have put out a 64 bit ARM version of beta2 if you want to give it a try.   Download is here: https://support.slickedit.com/outbound/2800/se_28000002_linux-arm64qt5_beta2.tar.gz

It had been planned for v28, but when you originally asked, it wasn't clear if it would make the cut or not.
