Silent test failures in 0.76

I am trying to upgrade a working Padre 0.72 installation on a SuSE system
and I got a silent test failure:

~/Padre-0.76> prove -Ilib -v t/01-load.t
t/01-load.t ..

BTW perl -v tells me:

This is perl, v5.10.0 built for x86_64-linux-thread-multi

After some investigation I found out that the silent crash was caused by the

use Wx::RichText?;

statement in the following files:


I can see the same code in the already installed Padre but I am not sure if back when
I installed that version if I force installed it or if that worked correctly.

In any case now I commented out the "use Wx::RichText?;" statements and
installed Padre.

Padre works but when I try to open the RegexEditor? (where I removed the use statement) it crashes Padre:

Error while autoloading 'Wx::wxRE_MULTILINE' at /home/gabor/perl5/lib/perl5/Padre/Wx/Dialog/ line 145

If I run a script (with the external output window NOT set) Padre crashes with this:

Type not translated: Attributes

If, after installation, I enable the use Wx::RichText? in /home/gabor/perl5/lib/perl5/Padre/Wx/Dialog/ and try to open the Regex Editor. Padre crashes with Segmentation fault.

If I enable the use Wx::RichText? in /home/gabor/perl5/lib/perl5/Padre/Wx/ and run a script from Padre, it crashes with the following:

10:40:20: Error: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
Segmentation fault

Je viens de faire un svn update (r13452) and no problem whatsoever when running make test.

Oops. In French? It is even not my mother language, I need coffee. I meant:
I just did a svn update ...

comment:4 Changed 6 years ago by szabgab

The PerlTidy? plugin was installed without a problem but when trying to use it (shift-Alt-F)
Padre crashes with

11:29:21: Error: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
Segmentation fault 

It seems these are all issues with wxWidgets on this SuSE machine.

Do you have the Suse package installed that provides the file?
On Ubuntu:
claudio@adelaide:~$ dpkg -S
libwxbase2.8-0: /usr/lib/
libwxbase2.8-0: /usr/lib/

  • Resolution set to not a bug
  • Status changed from new to closed was installed but after installing wxGTK and wxGTK-devel using YAST2 I could start using the Regex Editor and the Output window started to work as well and I could use Perl Tidy as well without crash. (The last one probably crashed earlier when it was trying to open the output window)

Thanks for your suggestion.

I am closing this ticket now though I still wonder how we could detect this (or maybe it was detected I just skipped over the detection back when I installed Alien::wxWidgets or themselves?
