New release 10.5 keeps crashing on my mac
« on: May 30, 2010, 07:55:45 pm »
First up I must say thanks for creating such as great piece of software - I wish I was in a better position to contribute but GPL and my day job don't mix well :(  [I as using CodeBlocks for my homegrown project of writing a new C++0x STL, but still under work restrictions]

I am also trying to make sense of my new mac - my first non-Windows computer in 20 years!  I was hoping CodeBlocks would make the transition simple :)

The first problem I have is that any time I try to change anything under the 'Settings' menu, CodeBlocks crashes when I hit 'OK'.
I *think* the problem is that I cannot find a default.conf file, and suspect there may be issues creating the initial default.  If someone could send me a 'vanilla' default.conf suitable for the mac (OSX 10.6.3) and tell me where to put it, I will report back on whether that fixes the problem.

I have a number of other visual issues, probably related to wxWidgets on mac, or on running with a small notebook screen, but I can work around those.  Not being able to set up my compiler/environment - that is a blocker right now.

For reference, I have the same problem with 8.02, and was waiting for the new release in case it was simply a matter of outdated binaries for the latest mac OS.

Do you have a backtrace ? I don't have Snow Leopard...

There's also the "nightly" builds, between C::B releases:

Not sure what you are asking for - every time it crashes it dumps me into a screen full of info it wants to send to Apple.  I suspect this is what you are looking for, but no idea if a local copy is stored.  I could copy/paste the text somewhere, but it is probably larger than we want to post in the forum, which also makes me wonder if I am looking at the right thing?

Yes, I meant the output of Crash Reporter. Not that useful from a release build,
but it's a start (and debug builds are huge, so we aren't shipping those symbols).

Use http://developer.berlios.de/bugs/?group_id=5358 for reporting and attaching.

OK - the full crash log is 102kb, not something to post here.

The top 20 lines of the call-stack from the thread that crashed follow.

What I did to cause this was launch CodeBlocks through the OSX GUI, Select the Settings menu, then Editor.
I changed the tab spacing from 4 to 3, then hit OK  -->  Boom!

You can try to disable the keybinder plugin. ( Plugins -> Manage plugins...)

Also you could try to remove (backup it first) the C::B's configuration file, there might be something wrong in there...
The file should be somewhere in  /Users/alisdairmeredith/CodeBlocks/CodeBlocks.app/ and it is named default.conf.


p.s. backup is needed in order to show the file to the devs, to prevent crashes in the future.

(most of the time I ignore long posts)
[strangers don't send me private messages, I'll ignore them; post a topic in the forum, but first read the rules!]

The file would be in ~/Library/Application\ Support/CodeBlocks/default.conf

Plugins, however, are in the CodeBlocks.app bundle itself (under Resources).

Thanks for the hints - I did not know where to look for the default.config, so now I can edit by hand in the worst case.

In fact, I did not need to do that to get up and running.  After disabling the keybinding plug-in, I still got crashes, but could see the call-stack was different, so I disabled *all* plugins.  Now I have a stable system, and I have simply re-enabled the compiler plugin so I can execute my code/compile/run-test cycle.  This is all I need (personally) for now, although obviously I could do more to try and track down exactly which of the plug-ins is causing the problem.

I will try and track down the troublesome plugins over the next few days and post back as I get more info, in the meantime I now have a productive environment to continue developing my STL that can support the latest GCC 4.6 alpha compiler, which is seriously cool - thanks a lot guys!  (Grabbing my GCC compiler via mac-ports, if anyone is curious.  So far, 4.6 adds only nullptr for 0x, but that is quite important if you are trying to write an 0x STL!)
