crash log

comment:1 Changed 17 months ago by Olly Betts

Looks like it's got into an infinite recursion trying to create a font (or something font related), and the crash is probably when it runs out of stack space, but I don't have a good idea why.

Were you successfully running an older version of Survex before trying this one?

Are you building Survex via homebrew?

Also, you say 1.2.44 above, but the log seems to indicate 1.2.43 - is that just a typo above?

OPS, sorry, I have checked and the version is 1.2.43 (see log file).

The installation was done with homebrew but with the previous OS (Catalina 10.15.x) and everything works fine but after the update survex works fine except for aven.

I'd suggest trying reinstalling the homebrew packages wxmac and then survex. Ideally a build with one OS version should continue to work with a later one, but I can see it might not always in practice.

enricof@icts-enrico bin % brew update

Updated 1 tap (homebrew/core).

If can be useful, attached (aven-system-log.txt) you can find the line on system.log when I try to start aven

	Apr 16 16:32:18 icts-enrico aven[9476]: objc[9476]: Class wxNSAppController is implemented in both /usr/local/Cellar/wxmac/3.0.5.1_1/lib/libwx_osx_cocoau_core-3.0.0.5.0.dylib (0x107de8c50) and /usr/local/opt/wxmac/lib/libwx_osx_cocoau_core-3.0.dylib (0x105854c50). One of the two will be used. Which one is undefined.

It looks like you have two different wxmac installs, and both are getting pulled in. Perhaps try deleting the one which isn't from homebrew? I'd guess the Cellar one if probably from homebrew, but not certain.

Did you manage to resolve this?

I think the same scenario is on MacOS Monterey 12.1 (21C52).

After successful installation i cannot open the app. It's opening without any windows showing and status is "App is not responding".

Does your case indicates App crash or it's 'freezing' like i have?

comment:10 Changed 6 months ago by Pawczak

Ok, this is funny one... When i try to Open Aven by opening App. It doesn't respond: can't click on any menus at the top bar, no window is shown.

I accidentally double clicked on .svx file which i process in my app (I work on Android app for presenting data and Data from Survex is one of the Data Formats which i work on).

Guess what... double clicking on .svx file is opening file and everything seems to be correct.

Maybe it will help resolving the issue.

I don't have a Mac so it's hard for me to debug. I used to be able to borrow one for the weekend, but I don't think that's possible now.

So it really needs a developer on macos to poke at it.

comment:12 Changed 6 months ago by Pawczak

I understand. I will try to get my logs from the App opening, but now (without having much time) i could not find anything.

comment:13 Changed 6 months ago by Olly Betts

There's now a new Survex release and an updated homebrew package (notably it uses the newer homebrew wxwidgets package instead of the old wxmac package). Can you see if this helps?

comment:14 Changed 6 months ago by Olly Betts

Enrico reported on the list that in 1.4.2 aven still hangs when starting without a file (but works when started with a file).

Summary: aven crash on OSX 11.2.3aven hangs on macos is started without a file

I've retitled to make this specifically about the current hang on startup with a file.

The workaround seems to be to load a file to start aven (I guess by dragging it onto the aven icon, or by double clicking in the filer).

Milestone: 1.4.3
Resolution: fixed
Status: newclosed

Should be fixed in homebrew package 1.4.2_6.

If you're building from source and not using homebrew, it's fixed in git and the fix should be in 1.4.3.
