Here is a short recap of what you can do to debug. I'm not sure how to help you reproduce your errors though... reproduce 1. always start the server from the command line (./ser) 2. try to reproduce the bug from the last save game 3. set saveturns=1 debugging 1. have dev tools 2. enable core dumps (ulimit -S -c unlimited) 3. enable debugging symbols in freeciv (./configure --enable-debug=yes) 4. run gdb server/civserver 5. if you get a crash type backtrace (or just bt) -- /emj _______________________________________________ Freeciv-dev mailing list Freecivemail@example.com https://mail.gna.org/listinfo/freeciv-dev
