Phix suddenly stopped working.
« on: August 11, 2018, 08:43:35 AM »
I would like to report a problem with Linux version of Phix. It suddenly stopped working. All I get is a "segmentation fault" error. I'm using 32-bit Sparky Linux. It's a rolling release distro based on Debian.

Just tried 64-bit version on Solus and the result is the same - segmentation fault.

I haven't even heard of either of those distros, in fact I only test it on ubuntu.

What I would do is install evans debugger (0.9.18) or similar and see where it goes wrong. If you have access to a distro where it works, you can run "./p -d p" to get a list.asm of the compiler and then see if you can locate the error in that.

You haven't heard of Debian???

Just wanted to report this. Rolling release distos are becoming more and more popular nowadays and I thought this problem could be something important to you.

Of course I have heard of Debian, though I have never used it, it was Sparky and Solus that I had never heard of.

This is important to me, however as a one man band I have limited resources and am just letting you know I cannot get on this any time soon, sorry.

One other thing I might try is running p -c -test on ubuntu, then transfering the new executables out of the test direcory to Sparky/Solus to see which, if any, run there.

Thanks for the report,
Pete

Don't get me wrong. I don't expect you to fix this overnight or anything like that. Just wanted you to be aware of the situation.
