Description Morten Alver 2005-04-13 09:54:04 UTC
boa-constructor-0.3.1_alpha crashes on startup with the output reproduced below.  The output appears as the application shows the splash screen. After the splash screen the final error message appears in a dialog box (and in the console). After closing the dialog box, the application seems frozen.

This is on AMD64 - when testing on a Pentium 4 the application works perfectly. I have confirmed that a simple wxPython application runs normally.

Python version: 
Python 2.3.4 (#1, Mar  2 2005, 00:28:24) 
[GCC 3.4.3 20041125 (Gentoo Linux 3.4.3-r1, ssp-3.4.3-0, pie-8.7.7)] on linux2

vxPython version:

Output from Boa Constructor:

Just as an aside, 0.4.0 does not seem to have this error on amd64.
Comment 2 Steve Dibb (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2007-01-30 05:39:24 UTC
closing since amd64 isnt even keyworded, not to mention this is old.
