  1. higher macrumors newbie

    Dec 1, 2008
    I have an application that runs with XFree86. At the beginning of the application, we have Motif do some resource management and then add some signal handlers. If we add a -xrm option to the command line and then initialize with signal(SIGSEGV, function); we see a Bus Error at run time. The Bus Error occurs in the signal call. If we leave the -xrm option off, then we have no problems. Is there some way I can try and chase down the problem in signal? This same exact code runs fine on OS 10.1.5 as well as just about every other UN*X out there. I'm figuring it has to be a problem within OS 10.2

    Maybe I have the same signal question like top, but I don't know what is -xrm setting and how to set it in max os?

    Thanks in advance.

    Have you tried any more recent versions of OSX? 10.2 was pretty buggy.

    Yep upgrade to at least Panther. It was the first truly usable version of OS X if you ask me.
