Bus Error

Post by Scorch » Sun Apr 02, 2006 3:02 am

Run bz (running latest by the minute on v2_0branch) and it works fine, i join a server and play for a while (not very long at all, like 3min). Then it crashes and dies and the terminal says Bus Error.

After a crash if i restart it the play time gets less and less, but if i let it sit after a crash then the play time goes up. (play time is time from join server to crash.)

Have you tried a restart? I'm talking about the computer.

Still doesn't work, and if i dont kill it quick after it freezes (with alt+apple+escape) otherwise it crashes the whole comp.

I have a related crash (or exactly the same thing). Built an OSX client tonight and it crashed every time when shooting through a teleporter. Turned off "Fancy Effects" and it was fine. This was after the OS update to 10.4.6, fyi.
