Dying on Linux

Post by tailormade » Tue Apr 14, 2020 12:02 am

I need to use GFL 3.40 for a project where FreeImage will not read a particular form of TIFF, but GFL will. Unfortunately when I create a new executable (using GCC 4.4.7) and try to read any format (well, I have just tried JPG, PNG, and TIFF) it dies (segmentation fault) in reading the input file. I have not used GFL for a while on Linux, but it used to work with a previous version of CentOS (and hence, GCC). Is there something I need to do to use GFL on Linux?

I need to upgrade to GCC 4.7+ soon and is that going to make things better or worse? Well, I guess it can't get worse...

We upgraded to GCC 8.3 and that made no difference. It still dies in reading any format.
