Here is Dave's mail, hope it helps.

73, Franz, oe5rtl

The crash dump that you provided does not give me sufficient detail to determine the cause of the segmentation fault. Can you please download the latest version 3.21.81, build and then run using the gnu debugger?

Close down the pskmail server, then

$ cd
$ mkdir fldigi-src
$ cd fldigi-src
$ wget http://www.w1hkj.com/downloads/fldigi/fldigi-3.21.81.tar.gz
$ tar xzf fldigi-3.21.81.tar.gz
$ cd fldigi-3.21.81
$ ./configure
$ make
$ script (should show "Script started, file is typescript"); perhaps auf Deutsche
$ gdb src/fldigi
(gdb) r --debug-level 5

Start your pskmail server and allow the gdb/debug/fldigi to run until it crashes. It should then put you back to the debugger prompt. Then execute:

(gdb) bt
(gdb) quit

$ exit (should show "Script done, file is typescript"); perhaps auf Deutsche

Send me these files



73, Dave

Hi Franz,

Great info, I do run that version but not debugging. I will try that.

I had same troubles with fldigi. Dave, w1hkj told me to update to
version 3.21.81 and to run it with a debugger. Now it works for 4
weeks without any crash...

73, Franz,

That is a good idea. Actually, as fldigi is such complete crap I'd like
a script that can check if fldigi is locked up or completely crashed and
relaunch it every hour or so (it's always crashed when I check the
server). Wasn't there such a function a while back? Anyone happen to
have a script somewhere I can modify?

Hello Greg,

Try adding DISPLAY=:0 to the top of your cron file instead.

     I am attempting to get server to
   start in cron but as of yet only get a terminal with no
   output. Any help appreciated!
     export DISPLAY=:0 && lxterminal -e "pskmail_server"
     where "pskmail_server" (without quotes) works correctly in a
   terminal now. Just not with the cron command.
