#811 closed defect (fixed)

MYSYS shortcut starts an infinite number of windows

Reported by: JonBall Owned by: grass-dev@…
Priority: major Milestone: 6.4.0
Component: Default Version: svn-releasebranch64
Keywords: MSYS, wingrass Cc:
CPU: x86-64 Platform: MSWindows Vista

Description

Platform: Vista grass obtained from: Trento Italy site grass binary for platform: as Downloaded GRASS Version: 6.4.0SVN (r39626) 2009-10-27

Clicking on either of the MYSYS shortcuts created during a winGrass installation opens an infinite series of empty windows that cascade across the screen.

When I finally manage to crass out of the infinite loop I sometime manage to see a Windows error message that says 'rxvt not responding'.

I've looked at the msys.bat file but I can't see anything that would cause a loop. rxvt.exe won't work on an x64 system but it should jump to an exit on fail...

Can you open a cmd.exe window and tell us what the value of %PROCESSOR_ARCHITECTURE% is? ie.

echo %PROCESSOR_ARCHITECTURE%

"MSYS UNIX Console" menu item worksforme with r40456 build on 32bit XP - it opens a rxvt term as it should.

for the record: there are some hints for this issue for Win64 in

http://trac.osgeo.org/grass/wiki/CompileOnWindows#InstalltheenvironmentforcompilationMingW

so the actual WinGrass-Installer is built with an updated msys in the osgeo4w-building environment.

Is this still an issue with latest winGRASS from http://josef.fsv.cvut.cz/wingrass/grass64/ ?

Hi,

I don't think it's related, but just in case- see also the bug report #1184 about zombie processes cluttering up the ctrl-alt-del task list.

not really, osgeo4w's msys is just replaced by another msys, see compile on windows
