Bus Error – and I didn’t even know I was riding.
I’ve been doing quite a bit with python, django, and Google app engine lately. In a word, it’s awesome, but more to come on that later.
I use Mac OS X 10.5.3 right now with python 2.5.2. Very often, python simply dies with the cryptic “Bus Error,” which I can only assume means that something very dramatic has happened. It’s surprising and somewhat frustrating to realize just how much drama there is on my computer.
However, as I was writing this post and used the interpretter to check my python version, it crapped out when I exited with a simple “exit()”.
Back to the drawing board I guess.
Update 2008-07-08: I found another resource on the topic. I’m not sure which of the steps in this post helped, but my python is much more stable now.
