Hi John, I have tried unlimiting the coredumpsize from a tcsh shell (as I was indeed using a bash shell and the coredumpsize was limited to 0 kbytes) but, for some reasons, even if caret crashes no core file gets written out. All the display functions that I have tried out (rendering surfaces,

Hi John, I have downloaded caret5_exe_linux_debug and ran it, but strange things happened... :-| 1) First, I ran the debug executable as caret5 -notext as you suggested: I selected File Import, and, wow! caret opened the file. I did the same with File Open and it worked. Solved, I thought: must

Hi John and Donna, thank you for your suggestions! I will no try to dowload the debug release and follow your instructions. In the meantime, I ran Caret with the 'strace' linux diagnostic command, hoping it may help you to trace the problem. I have attached the file with the whole text output.

Hi Marco, We had a problem similar to this that had to do with the freetype library that is used to render the stereotaxic coordinates on the volume display window. I have built a new version of Caret5 for linux that has an option, -notext, that will prevent Caret5 from trying to draw

Hi John and Donna, I tried both of your methods, but unfortunately none solved my problem... I have tried to rename the file .fonts.conf, alone and, following the thread between Roland and you, together with .fonts.cache-1 and .fontconfig/ I also tried running Donna's script sh

Marco, Does the problem occur when you use File: Open Volume Anatomy (or functional) File to open the same file? If so, does it occur if you convert the file to NIfTI and/or AFNI? I'm guessing it will (e.g., suggesting a display issue, rather than a file I/O issue), but it helps to be

Marco, Another user had a problem similar to this. I believe it has to do with the FreeType library which gets used to create text characters that are drawn on the volume slices to show the voxel and its stereotaxic coordinate. See if there is a file in your home directory named

Hi Marco, Although your problem is a bit different, another possible culprit is the .caret5_preferences file: http://brainvis.wustl.edu/pipermail/caret-users/2006-November/000931.html We're still struggling with this problem at University of Washington. Today I asked Veronica to try the
