Fluid not working

the fluid simulator does not seem to be working in the source compile that i make. All i do is get the source and run scons and get the build but the fluid sim does not seem to work from both CVS and BF-Blender 2.42a sources.

Help on how to set up the config file would be great. I am using slackware 10.2 and 11.0.

here is a previous thread.

Thanks for any help.

also if is try opening up a file that has a fluid sim in it an the has the domain object already selected blender crashes on startup. But not if the domain object is not selected. very odd. Also as soon as i click on the domain object to be select blender also crashes.
i can still select the fluid obects and the other stuff but not the domain or activat it.

Please i need some help soon. some help on maybe setting up the linux-config file for scons. May be I needs some dependences, but which one.

Any help, any one.


it’s hard to say just like that - it should work for most compilers and gcc versions (it even works with MSVC :slight_smile: !). You could try to compile a debug version (BF_DEBUG=‘true’ in user-config.py), and run blender from within gdb. If you can reproduce the crash there, you could post the stack backtrace (“bt” in gdb), that would be helpful to see where the problem is. Btw. why dont you use a precompiled binary?

-> Nils

The reason i can’t use a precompiled binary is that am working on a projects that requires some of the latest additions to blender, if i could, I would.
GCC version is 3.4.6
gdb? how would i use that

this is the out put of doing
> gdb ./blender
> run
