To submit a bug report that concerns a crash to the Red Eclipse Team, it is helpful to have a backtrace.
Windows (64 bit)
You must download and install Code::Blocks for easiest building on Windows.
Setting up Code::Blocks
- Install TDM-GCC-64
- You may need to set the Code::Blocks compiler to TDM-GCC-64, open Code::Blocks and go to
Settings -> Compiler -> Global Compiler Settings -> Toolchain Executables. Paths may need changed depending on where you installed it.
Compiling Red Eclipse
- Open redeclipse.cbp in Code::Blocks as a project.
- Select the debug build (redeclipse-amd64-dbg)
- Press the Build button.
Running Red Eclipse and Retrieving the Backtrace
- Press the Debug/Continue button.
- Red Eclipse will now start, attempt to crash it.
- Once crashed, you will see the debugger near the bottom of the screen with a Command input. Write
bt fullin that command input and press enter.
- This will produce a backtrace, copy and paste this to an accessible place such as a crash report on the Red Eclipse forum or a paste service to be linked on IRC.
On Linux-based systems, you can use GDB to get a backtrace:
First you must compile with debug symbols:
make -Csrc clean && CXXFLAGS=-ggdb3 make -Csrc install
Then run with GDB:
Inside GDB, to start Red Eclipse:
Once Red Eclipse has crashed, GDB will catch this and present a prompt. At this prompt run:
This will produce a backtrace, copy and paste this to an accessible place such as a crash report on the Red Eclipse forum or a paste service to be linked on IRC.
