Crash on C::B startup
« on: November 30, 2008, 09:27:41 pm »
First of all I would like to say thank you for code::blocks, it is definitely my favorite IDE.
I was using the 8.02 build from the ubuntu repository, and I removed those, and I dled the latest svn (5325).
I was already using wxGTK (2.8.9) for some of my projects, which I had built from source. I was getting an error regarding ACLOCAL and WXCONFIG,
so I copied over the wxwin.m4 file to my /usr/share/aclocal. bootstrap also advised me to add m4 to and, and I did.
./bootstrap ran without error.
./configure ran without error.
make ran without error.
sudo make install ran without error.

Now I went to start up codeblocks, and it immediately crashes, giving me the option to send a bug report. No Splash screen, just a bug report.
valgrind output is this:

Valgrind output is almost identical to the bug report .xml file.

Anyways, thanks again for a great IDE.
Any help is greatly appreciated.
