Segmentation Fault (core dumped) on Solaris 10

Discussion in 'Perl Misc' started by mariakvelasco, Jan 8, 2008.

  1. Hello,

    I am trying to run a perl script on a Solaris 10 machine, which is
    suppose to display a dialog box and I keep getting a Segmentation
    Fault (core dumped) error. I don't get this error message when I run
    it on Windows or Linux. Does anyone have an idea on where I should
    look for the root of the problem.

    Any advice would be great.

  2. Post the script (if it's small), or a small example script which
    demonstrates the problem. The output of perl -V could also help us
    diagnose the problem.

  3. This is what perl -V returns

  4. I am using Tk modules to create my dialog boxes.

    The problem is on my machine, I get the right result when running my
    script; however, it's run on a different machine, the Segmentation
    Fault error arises.

    Is there something missing on the other solaris machine?

  5. I am getting the following information when I tried to debug it using

    Program received signal SIGSEGV, Segmentation fault.
    0xfee32d98 in Tcl_utfToExternalDString

    Hope that gives more information.
