Summary0000526: Can't get tuxpaint to work with panorama video driver
DescriptionOn recent equipment I have purchased SNAP is unusable. It is well known that there are issues with older versions of SDL pre-2007 not working. Application shipped with SDL libs in the package predating panorama release. After many attempts and tests with alternate later versions, Application crashes on startup with..
Killed by SIGSEGV
pid=0x008b ppid=0x008a tid=0x0007 slot=0x00b4 pri=0x0200 mc=0x0001
SDLTTF 1:00008413

Process dumping was disabled, use DUMPPROC / PROCDUMP to enable it.

Seems to be related SDLTTF.DLL

Steps To Reproducelaunch tuxpaint with stock shipped sdl libs.. result cant find SDDHELP$.

Update sdl libs in program folder with post 2008 versions to current and use rem tuxpaint test
SET PATH=C:\home\default\Downloads\tuxpaint;%PATH%
SET BEGINLIBPATH=C:\home\default\Downloads\tuxpaint
cd \home\default\Downloads\tuxpaint

produces trap in sdlttf.dll every time!

Additional Information4 year old daughter having a fit!! Help! (-:

I have had great luck updating other older SDL apps to work with panorama but this one has got me stumped!

ONe added note from the tuxpaint support area.

Update, December 2010: Tux Paint 0.9.21c, a minor update includes the interactivity improvement and updated FontConfig libraries, and should address this issue.

Something to note: I would or could be interested in taking over this from you.

Did you check in the OS/2 branch on tuxpaint dev? or do you only have a private diff? I ask as I was looking at TUX math and TUX typing, companion applications from the same dev group.

I do have your DVD build environment, although I modified it a lot in an effort to compile Instabird. Would the environment as delivered be adequate to build it?
The other good news about tuxpaint is that they never updated the app beyond 1.2.xx versions of SDL sparing either of us the issue that our SDL is falling out of grace quickly.

Thank you for the efforts but don't let this issue be a priority over the important work you are doing like SANE, CUPS. If it wasn't so expensive to send you a HPLIP compatible scanner/printer combo.. I'd send you one. Units are quite cheap here but shipping to Australia is outrageous..

i downlaoded latest cvs code - needs quite a few mods for OS2

almsot have it linking now - but need to find an implementation of fget_ws that compiles with libc

wide character support is not great for us :(

plugins dont work and report errors as the necessary symbols aren't dllexport'd

a SIGSEGV is also reported to stdout but it seems to start and run ok
