Bug feedback with yaml-cpp 0.5.2-2 on arch linux 64bit
« on: April 11, 2015, 02:34:23 am »
Hey guys,

I couldn't find any solutions for my problem while I was searching for it and I thought maybe someone somewhere may want to know about this. Hopefully this is a good location for this.

yaml-cpp 0.5.2-2 doesn't work on arch linux 64 bit
rolling back to yaml-cpp 0.5.1-1 fixes the problem.

I'm running 64bit arch linux on a macbook and I had a LOT of trouble getting openXcom to work. It turns out, after much handwringing, that the yaml-cpp parser that arch linux has updated to recently (0.5.2-2) doesn't work. I found this out since I had an unupdated machine with yaml-cpp 0.5.1-1 (on which openxcom works).  Rolling back yaml to this older version worked on the otherwise updated arch linux installation. I don't know if this may be an issue for linux users on other distros with up to date yamls, which is why I decided to come to the openxcom forums with this.

Here's a sample logfile when the problem was happening:

If you want me to post other information that I can find, do let me know.

by all means, if it can help people sort out potential issues, there's no good reason not to ;)
