@#&@$ Segmentation fault !!!
I have a PC with 64-bit Slackware 14.0 and multilib installed. I also have a netbook with 32-bit Slackware 14.0 installed.
I have blassic and dosbox installed on both (as 32 bit executables on the PC as well).
I find that when running blassic on the netbook, as soon as I try to dimension a string array, the program aborts with a "Segmentation fault" (and the Terminal program loses its cursor). No problem on the PC though.
Recently I decided to install Windows 3.1 on dosbox. I had no problems doing so on the netbook but I couldn't get very far on the PC before I got the dreaded "Segmentation fault".
This is a particularly unhelpful message as it is as if the system is trying to pretend that the program never ran. I am guessing that a library file might be the culprit but with no information whatsoever given when the fault appears, I am completely at a loss as to how I could track it down.
Is there any way to track down Segmentation faults? Could a static linking (if this is possible) help?
