Geomview for X, 1.4.2 beta on rs6000
Dear recipient of this message, I have just compiled and installed Geomview for X, 1.4.2 beta on my group's IBM RS/6000 model 530. The good news: When I type "geomview" I am greated with three windows titled "Geomview", "Camera" and "Tools" which largely work. For example I can execute the external module "Clock" and use the tools to rotate the clock. The bad news: When I try to load some of the files in the subdir "data/geom" I get fatal run-time errors such as "Segmentation fault" or (ocassionally) "Trace/BPT trap" or "Illegal instruction". Examples: "geomview square.quad" flashes the windows up and then quits with the error "Segmentation fault". "geomview dodec.quad" just did the same but with the error "Illegal instruction". Loading these with the "Open" command in the "File" menu of the "Geomview" window crashes geomview with one of the 3 error messages I mentioned. In general, the method of opening (either from command line or menu) does not seem to effect the outcome. Here's a list of files I've tried to open: abstr.off Crashes antoine0.oogl works antoine1.oogl works antoine2.oogl works antoine3.oogl works axes.list works br4fd.list Crashes jungle.list works ref.list Crashes ref2.list Crashes csquare.quad Crashes dodec.quad Crashes icosa.quad Crashes nsquare.quad Crashes square.quad Crashes My main interest in X Geomview is for interfacing with Evolver 1.95. If I already have a surface loaded in Evolver and use the "P" option to pick "Start simultaneous geomview" the geomview windows flash up and disappear. However, if do the same with no surface in Evolver, geomview doesn't crash until I load a surface into Evolver. I'm guessing that this is another manifestation of whatever bug is cropping up in loading from files. Any help would be greatly appreciated! I think X Geomview will be very useful in my research. Please let me know if I can provide any other relevant information on the problems I've been having. Being new to geomview, I fear I may have neglected to report something crucial for debugging. Thanks in advance, Steve Townsend townsend at msc.cornell.edu
