bus error

Post by leeyuntien » Mon Nov 15, 2004 7:16 pm

Dear Users,

After installing wxMax-2.5.3 and compiled menu sample under the directory /sample/menu, it looks good. But when I executed the program, after a while it terminated and gave an error message saying bus error. Does anyone know what happened or can someone help me? Thank you very much!!

"Bus error" means that the app did try to access memory it didn't allocate and that the error was found by the CPU, not the OS.
OS: OpenSuSE, Ubuntu, Win XP Pro
wx: svn
Compiler: gcc 4.5.1, VC 2008, eVC 4

Mind you that wxMAC is still under some development. You should mention this bug to the wx community on the SF site so they can fix it. Better yet try to fix it yourself, and submit a patch.
