When I run
to test the xmovie application, I get a segmentation fault.
But I successfully can run other dump.foobar data files in xmovie (e.g. indent, colloid, etc)
When I checked the format of dummy.dat, it appears to be using an older format (POSITIONS, and TIME). So I matched its format to what I found in other files, and now I found that as long as I only send 256 frames to xmovie, that I get the little dot bouncing around the screen. But if I send 257 frames to xmovie, I get a segmentation fault! Is this an inherent limitation to xmovie? I did just notice that each of the other data files I have sent to xmovie contain less than 256 frames…
FYI, I am running on MAC OS 10.4.11 2.8 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo and I compiled xmovie with the “mac” library line “LIBS = $(XLIBDIR) -lX11 -lXaw -lXt -lXext -lXmu -lXpm”
