• sbbsecho segmentation fault

    From Dumas Walker@1:103/705 to All on Fri Feb 16 10:28:53 2024
    I am getting a segmentation fault when trying to run synchronet 3.19 on a new system.

    ./sbbsecho -in

    Why am I trying to run 3.19? So I can upgrade it to 3.20, and test out some other stuff I want to try, without messing my "real" board up. Thanks.

    If you could provide a backtrace, that'd allow us to help you root-cause and likely work-around the issue:

    Thanks. However, I already tried part of this. That is to say, I did the following as per some instructions on the wiki page:

    #:~/repo/src/sbbs3$ SBBSEXEC=/sbbs/exec make symlinks DEBUG=1 /home/bbs/repo/src/sbbs3/../build/Common.gmake:132: *** Both DEBUG and
    RELEASE are defined. Stop.

    So, for fun, I then tried it without symlinks:

    #:~/repo/src/sbbs3$ SBBSEXEC=/sbbs/exec make DEBUG=1 /home/bbs/repo/src/sbbs3/../build/Common.gmake:132: *** Both DEBUG and
    RELEASE are defined. Stop.

    As I do not have RELEASE=1 on the make command line, why does it think I am trying to compile DEBUG *and* RELEASE, and how do I tell it I am not?

    Check your src/build/localdefs.mk file.

    Thanks. Commented out a line and that did it.

    so I removed it and sbbsecho is working now.

    Okay, good. Looks like that bug was fixed already for v3.20: https://gitlab.synchro.net/main/sbbs/-/commit/2962e4a5bf733e4b0c3869c43daebc5 --

    Good to know. I will be upgrading the test system soon and should pick up
    that fix. Thanks.
