Another Crack at the Spicy Localhost Server Crash [CLOSED]

Hi, I've posted about this problem before but since I had no immediate need to fix it, I just let it go for a while, even forgetting about it. However, I am now working with Martin Thompson on making a mapping tutorial, and may need to test 2.3 maps somewhere. This happens with RPG-X V 2.3.4B when I run HM_RAVEN (or any map) on localhost. I've never been able to successfully run a 2.3 localhost.

I heard signal 11 was a segfault, a memory access error. Curiously enough, I can not only run 2.3 maps by connecting to the TLO Server but I can also run localhost on version 2.2 (which is no longer used by TLO).

The only things I can think of is that it might be a configuration problem with my 2.3 config files... though I've had no other problems with those files. There also may have been a problem with my configuration when I installed 2.3, though again, I've had no other indications to suggest that being the case. I did the install manually.

Any thoughts?

EDIT: If I don't get a reply in the next couple of days, I'm going to go ahead and nuke my installation and install RPG-X Standard edition, making sure to move my .pk3 files elsewhere first. Nobody uses Holomatch (which needs 2.1) anymore or 2.2 anyway, and I think it will be much simpler to just have 2.3 than having to have copies/links of the same files in multiple places for multiple versions.

You're right that signal 11 corresponds to a segmentation fault, but it's odd to see it on the default EF maps.

Things I would try would be increasing your hunkmegs, or possibly moving all the maps you can from baseEF to the RPG-X2 folder. (Keep in mind that both baseEF and RPG-X2 have files named pak0, pak1 etc. so you CANNOT just move stuff over or you may accidentally replace something important)


Thanks for the tips, I will try those before breaking out the sledgehammer! :D


Well, unfortunately those things did not work, and neither did doing a clean install with SE from scratch. Perhaps we need to see if there is something wrong with my directory structure (as I ran the installation on X-P, I'll post screencaps if you want) or maybe it's just that my machine is special in a very bad way and I need to get a new one. :P
