Re: mc from cvs will not start

Hi, Pavel!

I wanted to check how new version of mc works, and it does not:

It works for me. But I know several problems that appear only in specific
situations, for example it the terminfo database is missing or if MC is
run on Linux console with weird permissions in /dev etc.

I'm very busy with my main job, so I cannot look in depth right now, but
the CVS version works for me. I just compiled it.

Program received signal SIGSEGV, Segmentation fault.
delete_format (format=0x80eeb10) at screen.c:144
144             next = format->next;
(gdb) p format

Try "p *format"

$1 = (format_e *) 0x666c6168
(gdb) bt
#0  delete_format (format=0x80eeb10) at screen.c:144
#1  0x8050d33 in set_panel_formats (p=0x80e8b08) at screen.c:1423

I didn't touch it. Honestly. Last change was:

revision 1.86
date: 2001/03/30 01:29:08;  author: andrew;  state: Exp;  lines: +1 -1
* panel.h, screen.c (panel_new): panel_name constified to do gcc
some more happy when gmc is compiled

Try to find out what's wrong on your system. Try moving away ~/.mc/ - it
may got corrupted.
