This bug report will be sent to the XEmacs Development Team,
not to your local site managers!!
Please write in English, because the XEmacs maintainers do not have
translators to read other languages for them.
In XEmacs 21.0 "20 minutes to Nikko" [Lucid] (i686-redhat-linux) of Thu May 6
1999 on javabench5.watson.ibm.com
configured using `configure i686-redhat-linux --with-gcc --cflags=-O6
--with-gnu-make --dynamic --with-x11=yes --with-xpm --with-xface
Please describe exactly what actions triggered the bug
and the precise symptoms of the bug:
I set up xemacs as in the intructions, except for one thing.
In the file config.h I had to change all the occurences of Rconnect,
Rbind, etc (for the socks stuff) to SOCKSconnect, SOCKSbind, etc. This
is because I was using socks5 instead of socks4. I also had to include
-lsocks5 in the link portion of the main Makefile (src/Makefile)
I downloaded the sumo tar file and installed it as indicated in the
instructions. I then set up the following .emacs file from the option
menu for the root user:
'(socks-server (quote ("Default server" "socks2.watson.ibm.com"
rftp is just a socksofied ftp program from socks version 5.
I then (as root) went into the the Options menu, went to Manage
Packages, "Add download site" added the two top-most sites (xemacs.org
) and then selected "update install packages"...
after finally connecting to the site ( i think it also went as far as
succsessfully changing into the proper directory), xemacs promptly crashed.
The crash message is included below followed by the C stack backtrace:
Fatal error (11).
Your files have been auto-saved.
Use `M-x recover-session' to recover them.
Please report this bug by running the send-pr script included
with XEmacs, or selecting `Send Bug Report' from the help menu.
As a last resort send ordinary email to `crashes(a)xemacs.org'.
*MAKE SURE* to include the information in the command
If at all possible, *please* try to obtain a C stack backtrace;
it will help us immensely in determining what went wrong.
To do this, locate the core file that was produced as a result
of this crash (it's usually called `core' and is located in the
directory in which you started the editor, or maybe in your home
directory), and type
gdb /usr/local/bin/xemacs core
then type `where' when the debugger prompt comes up.
(If you don't have GDB on your system, you might have DBX,
or XDB, or SDB. A similar procedure should work for all of
these. Ask your system administrator if you need more help.)
