Building ZooLib ButtonMessage sample crashes Haiku when run under VirtualBox
|Reported by:||MichaelCrawford||Owned by:||axeld|
ZooLib is a C++ cross-platform application framework. It is close to supporting Haiku, but I find that building it often crashes the system, when I run Haiku under VirtualBox on my Fedora 10 Xeon box.
Possibly this is actually a bug in VirtualBox; if I can I'll try running Haiku under KVM and VMware.
I have seen this problem with several different versions of both Haiku and of VirtualBox. Presently I'm using the GCC 2.95.3 build of Haiku hrev31471 and VirtualBox 3.0.0.
ZooLib's SourceForge project has both Subversion and CVS repositories. The Subversion code isn't building yet; I've been preparing a release from the older CVS code. To fetch the CVS sources:
$ cvs -z3 -d:pserver:firstname.lastname@example.org:/cvsroot/zoolib checkout -P zoolib
Delete or rename zoolib/src/platform/beos/TLS.h - it conflicts with the file of the same name that comes with Haiku.
cd into zoolib/samples/buttonmessage/buttonmessage_build_be and type "make".
After compiling a few files, either Haiku will freeze or VirtualBox will report that the guest has crashed. If you reboot Haiku and try the make again, gcc will report that some of the object files are in an unrecognized format.
