On Fedora 15, building Xpp works but it seg faults when I run it - see
On further investigation, I may have unfairly attributed this to using
Fedora 15. The cause of the issue appears to be having a long path to
the xpp executable, i.e. a long string in argv, at run-time.
On my machine, when argv (incl. null terminator) is more than 78
characters, xpp crashes. I can reproduce it simply by copying my
existing pp installation to a new directory as follows:
cp -a /opt/pp/pp-2.9.1w2.rda.110226
Then argv is
which is 79 characters (incl. null terminator) and this makes xpp crash.
Unfortunately all my builds since moving to Fedora 15 were temporary
builds to test patches which were located somewhere deep in the
