I released cube 6.05 on Feb 14th. The graphics show concentric hearts that rotate around a common axis at different speeds, giving interesting overlapping patterns. (I also turned this into an app that I put on my wife's iPhone for St. Valentine's day.

There have been some problems reported with graphics on Linux, as discussed in this thread. Let's continue that discussion here.

I originally released versions for Windows and Linux, but I've just now added a version for Mac.

Except that I built it on a 32 bit machine, and you have a 64 bit machine.
The SIGSEGV suggests a real error, not X11 access controls. Do you have
all the libraries installed required to be able to run 32 bit applications?


AFAIK, yes. The ia32 libs being installed have never been a problem on Fedora. I can't think of a 32 bit BOINC app that hasn't run.

However, as always, I'm willing to check (and learn). What do I need to check for? I posted the output of ldd in the other thread if that helps.

Kathryn, did you try to run cube_graphics "standalone" using your own account, not the boinc account? Can you also try the Einstein graphics (you'll find it in the slot). If you run these under /tmp then you should be able to get the stderr output files to see what goes wrong.

If it's a problem with opening the X11 display then it's likely a bug in X11 not in BOINC. But to test that idea I could compile a non-BOINC graphics program on my 32 bit machine and see if it will run on your 64 bit machine or if it crashes with the same error.

Using my own account, cube still crashes.

However, E@H works fine. The star sphere starts right up after the expected message about running standalone

Can't open init data file - running in standalone mode

Also, Eric,

I know it's possible to run under a debugger (gdb??) but I've only done it once before with someone holding my hand. Is that something that may help?

In the download area (here) you will find an X11 program called 'xphoon' which I built from source on 32 bit Fedora 10. It does not use BOINC or OpenGL. Please try that and see if it works on your 64 bit machine.

Nada.

After doing a `chmod +x` and running it, I get nothing. Just dumped back to the command prompt.

It won't pop up a window, it changes the background window to show the
current phase of the moon. What window manager/desktop manager are you using?
I actually don't know if it works with Gnome or KDE, as I use "Classic" X.

But if it didn't bomb with SIGSEGV then it probably ran okay.

It didn't bomb (nothing printed out), but nothing changed on my desktop.

I'm using KDE 4.

I can't seem to find the source code for 6.05. Is it available?

Nevermind, I found it.
