I 've learnt an easy solution to "Segmentation Fault" error:
I think there is a bug in "" which is the standart component of Python 2.4. I 'm using Zope and there is a patched version of this file in Zope. Its name is "dcpyexpat". (Look at
Zope-2.8.0/lib/python/Shared/DC/xml/pyexpat you 'll see If you don't have Zope, you can download it from here Remove the bugged file (/usr/lib/python2.4/lib-dynload/ and copy
Zope-2.8.0/lib/python/Shared/DC/xml/pyexpat/ to its place. Don't change the new copied file 's name. (Don't change to Copy "" and "" from
Zope-2.8.0/lib/python/Shared/DC/xml/pyexpat/ to / usr/lib/python2.4/xml/parsers . If you don't need Zope, downloading source code, compiling it and taking the files that we need is enough for our purpose. Now boa 's working without any error...
My configuration:
Boa-constructor 0.4.4
Python 2.4
Slackware 10.1
