  • BCompare 4.19 and Earlier version crash in linux frequently.

    Maybe it time to issue a thread for this.

    I almost is be accustomed to when invoke more than one BCompare process,
    the last start up bcompare often broken.

    It almost not impact me already, not a big deal, just relounch it again.

    Is there need I send a crash log output to here for this?

    I want to know how to help find out the issue here.

      Hello,

      Could you give the BC 4.2 beta a try? How often does it crash and what stack trace does it show?

      Also, you can always email us privately at support@scootersoftware.com with full logs, your BCSupport.zip from the Help menu -> Support; Export, etc.

          After many days test, I am very sure about, those bugs which exists in version 4.0.x and 4.1.x linux AMD64 version, is gone
          in 4.2, I am very pleasure with it, I think bc 4.2.x is the first STABLE version in linux platform.

          Anywhy, Thanks.

            Hello,

            For other users finding this thread, BC4 runs better in a Slackware variant as of 4.2, due to some underlying upgrades made. Slackware is still not one of our supported distributions:

            but you may have luck testing and trying our trial:

            We are unable to offer support for unsupported distros, but our trial is fully featured and can be tested on your specific machine before any purchase is necessary.
