Version 339 Crashes With Ubuntu

Post by Flaps 30 » Fri Apr 06, 2012 12:07 pm

Decided it was time to upgrade from revision 289 to 339. The install using the .deb file was painless. :) At first all looked well. I could load up a model file and see the title. From there onwards it was all downhill. I couldn't open the model, as eePe would crash and close in trying to do so. Eepe would also close on trying to load a file from the TX, in fact eePe would close on trying most things.

I still have an old version (rev 289) on the system to fall back on. That is still working well.

I loaded r339 on my system and it seems to be working just fine. Try running eepe from a terminal and see if it gives any error messages when it goes down. Also you got the right version for your system correct? (32 or 64-bit)

Thanks for testing it. :) Yes I have installed the correct version.

This is the error message that i get when I try to open up a model or create a new one. or if I try to set up the preferences. ----> eepe: symbol lookup error: eepe: undefined symbol: _ZN9QListData11detach_growEPii

Since my last post on this. I have tried various things with no joy. I suspect that whatever is going on may be related to the fact that I had to install the original version manually through the terminal using the directions given, which set up a folder in my home directory. The .deb package locates the whole thing in another place. I could try to remove all traces of the original install, but that to my mind is going to take ages to find out how to do it, and then there is no guarantee that it will fix the problem which will leave me with nothing working at all with regards to eePe.

I did try to do an update to the original eePe through the terminal with no joy as it couldn't find whatever it wanted to do the update with,

Did you follow the 'Linux Build Instructions' on the eepe homepage when you originally installed eepe? Or what directions did you use?

That really shouldn't be the case.

Are you running 32bit or 64bit?

gohsthb - I followed the instructions on the homepage. No problems with that, it is still running fine.

errazz - I'm running 32 bit Ubuntu version 10.04 LTS

You're not crazy. I installed a test system, just ubuntu nothing tweaked or changed and installed eepe. Got the same crash and error as you. Now to figure out why!

Until I can fire up the virtual box, can you guys describe the error?

To get the error is simple. Open eepe, start a new model file, Then try to edit the model. At that point eepe disappears and I get the error:
eepe: symbol lookup error: eepe: undefined symbol: _ZN9QListData11detach_growEPii
I started with Ubuntu 10.04LTS. Installed the .deb package from the google code site.
I have since done a full update, and I still get the same message.

I have also downloaded the source and compiled it. That version seems to be working just fine.

I read some where about a similar problem. Turned out to be a different version of Perl on the system they used to compile the binary. I would guess it is probably something like that.

EDIT: I checked the qt version for 10.04 it is 4.6.4 If the system you compiled the debs has a higher version, that could be the issue.

Yup, thet's the issue. It really needs QT 4.7.4. Not sure I can even compile it with 4.6.
The simplest solution would be to download the Qt linux package and install it.:

ftp://ftp.qt.nokia.com/qt/source/qt-eve ... 7.4.tar.gz

It compiled and ran fine. Just needs to be done from the source.
For others,
To update the svn version, in a terminal cd to the eepe directory. Then run the command 'svn update'. After that just do qmake and make.

Nice to know that I'm not going mad. :)

I have updated the original eePe via the 'svn update' route and all is well.

Do I take it that for now you cannot install eePe using the .deb package if you are using Ubuntu?

Again, because I run Ubuntu 11.10 which uses Qt 4.7.4 you really need Qt 4.7.4 to use the .deb package.
Either update the libraries you have or compile from source.

Aint linux grand :)

Gotcha! :) For the record. I am running Ubuntu 10.04 with Qt version 4.7.2 for now.

Yup - Linux.. I love it! :)

Wait, 4.7.2 and you still get the same error? Weird. That shouldn't happen.

Anyway, consider updating to a 64 bit system with 4.7.4... That should solve my problems :D

For the hell of it I installed a clean copy of Ubuntu 10.04 on a new drive which has python QT4 version 4.7.2 as standard. Using the eePe DEB file to install eePe I suffered the same crash as before. Leaving things as they were, the next step was to upgrade the operating system to 10.11. That gave me Python QT4 version 4.7.4 and that sorted out the issues without having to reinstall eePe.

Off topic - I haven't the time or the inclination to 'upgrade' to 64 bit.. Yes I am running 32 bit on a 64 bit platform. The hassle in starting from scratch again just isn't on. So until something turns up that allows me to change over to a 64 bit operating system without having to spend hours on it, I will stay with what works.

Thanks to you both for your input. At least we know what the problem and the cure is. :)
