Crash with OgreRenderer

Postby S0ul_Killer » Sun Feb 19, 2012 11:53 pm

Hello,
I currently have runtime errors using the CEGUI Ogre Renderer.
First the specs:
I am working on Windows 8 Dev. Preview (also compiling the code under Ubuntu 11.10)
I am using Visual Studio 10
I am using Ogre 1.7.3 (custom build)
I am using CeGui 0.7.6 (also tried 0.7.5 both custom build against ogre 1.7.3)
Now the error:
When I am trying to load a scheme file the system crashes. The error is:
Run-Time Check Failure #2 - Stack around the variable 'input' was corrupted

The Debugger tracks the crash down to
OgreResourceProvider::loadRawDataContainer(const String& filename, RawDataContainer& output, const String& resourceGroup)

Which lies in the CEGUIOgreResourceProvider.cpp file.
The code of this method is:
Code: Select all
    String orpGroup;
    if (resourceGroup.empty())
        orpGroup = d_defaultResourceGroup.empty() ?
            Ogre::ResourceGroupManager::DEFAULT_RESOURCE_GROUP_NAME.c_str() :
            d_defaultResourceGroup;
    else
        orpGroup = resourceGroup;

    Ogre::DataStreamPtr input = Ogre::ResourceGroupManager::getSingleton().
        openResource(filename.c_str(), orpGroup.c_str());

    if (input.isNull())
        CEGUI_THROW(InvalidRequestException(
            "OgreCEGUIResourceProvider::loadRawDataContainer: Unable to open "
            "resource file '" + filename + "' in resource group '" + orpGroup +
            "'."));

    Ogre::String buf = input->getAsString();
    const size_t memBuffSize = buf.length();

    unsigned char* mem = new unsigned char[memBuffSize];
    memcpy(mem, buf.c_str(), memBuffSize);

    output.setData(mem);
    output.setSize(memBuffSize);

In the debugger it looks like the variable orpGroup has a wierd value:
+orpGroup {d_cplength=7 d_reserve=32 d_encodedbuff=0x0fd30a90 "îþîþîþîþîþîþîþîþîþîþîþîþîþîþîþîþ •|b/ø Ó" ...} CEGUI::String

Also the Ogre Resource System is initialised as I can create textured Ogre Objects.

The code looks like this:
Code: Select all
//process: create the cegui renderer
mCeguiRenderer = &CEGUI::OgreRenderer::bootstrapSystem();
CEGUI::SchemeManager::getSingleton().create((CEGUI::utf8*)"VanillaSkin.scheme");

If i comment the last line the code runs just fine. (Except that i am not able to use CeGui then).
I did of course internet research. Therefore I checked the resource.cfg file from Ogre. I have tried both version i found:
Code: Select all
[Imagesets]
FileSystem=../../media/cegui/imagesets
[Fonts]
FileSystem=../../media/cegui/fonts
[Schemes]
FileSystem=../../media/cegui/schemes
[LookNFeel]
FileSystem=../../media/cegui/looknfeel
[Layouts]
FileSystem=../../media/cegui/layouts

As well as:
Code: Select all
[CEGUI]
FileSystem=../../media/cegui/imagesets
FileSystem=../../media/cegui/fonts
FileSystem=../../media/cegui/schemes
FileSystem=../../media/cegui/looknfeel
FileSystem=../../media/cegui/layouts
FileSystem=../../media/cegui/lua_scripts
FileSystem=../../media/cegui/xml_schemas

Also I tried different scheme files. Plus I checked that all dll files are present in the binary folder.

The log files didn't show an error at all, as Ogres last message is OIS is successfully created (according to the Ogre tutorials) and Cegui log tells me that the Cegui System was successfully created.

Any help would be appreciated!
Thanks in advance!/

Very likely a memory corruption somewhere prior to that code. Does it always crash at the same point? On GNU/Linux I would check with valgrind, dunno about Windows tools.

Make sure everything is compiled with the same flags, same runtime libs, same everything - some sort of a mismatch there is a common caveat on Windows.

Thanks for the quick reply.
I forgot about the linux output, sorry.
If I run the program it gives me a "segmentation fault".
The callgrind output here tracks the crash to the XmlParser:
Process terminating with default action of signal 11 (SIGSEGV)
Access not within mapped region at address 0x3F8000B8
at 0x57AD0A0: CEGUI::XMLParser::initialise() (in /usr/lib/libCEGUIBase.so.1.2.0)
by 0x7186463: CEGUI::System::System(CEGUI::Renderer&, CEGUI::ResourceProvider*, CEGUI::XMLParser*, CEGUI::ImageCodec*, CEGUI::ScriptModule*, CEGUI::String const&, CEGUI::String const&) (CEGUISystem.cpp:246)
by 0x7186F5C: CEGUI::System::create(CEGUI::Renderer&, CEGUI::ResourceProvider*, CEGUI::XMLParser*, CEGUI::ImageCodec*, CEGUI::ScriptModule*, CEGUI::String const&, CEGUI::String const&) (CEGUISystem.cpp:1900)
by 0x5B19F62: CEGUI::OgreRenderer::bootstrapSystem() (CEGUIOgreRenderer.cpp:132)
...

I have recompiled CEGUI multiple times and always made sure that i use the same dependencies as my project.

I also tried to work with the Visual Studio Profiler, but that didn|t work out well (it just sazs "unspecified error").

I agree with Kulik - this is definitely memory corruption. You can tell because the first error you posted says so :)

Please post your code. There is no use posting our code, as in the first post - we already know what it says; we wrote it ;) Please also post a callstack / backtrace (though that's likely to be either corrupt or otherwise unhelpful).

Re: Crash with OgreRenderer

Postby S0ul_Killer » Mon Feb 20, 2012 4:41 pm

I just tried to compile MyGUI against my Ogre build (under Windows).
Compiling works just fine, but when I start a sample I get almost the same error (corrupted arround variable "stream").
Therefore I think it might be something Ogre-internal (or something related to the dependencies). Anyway since I don't have time to check that I'll be using the Ogre build-in Interface (Overlay-Elements).

Thanks for the help!

[SOLVED] Re: Crash with OgreRenderer

Postby Sigma » Wed Mar 21, 2012 4:31 am

Cross posting from another thread post I made with an identical problem:

http://www.cegui.org.uk/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?f=10&t=5024#p28604

I encountered this error and thought I'd post my fix. Hopefully it will save someone else a bit of pain.

For me, it occurred because I had built CEGUI with stl debug iterators turned off (for debug builds), but I had built Ogre and my Application with them turned on. Thus any call that passes an stl class (such as string) into CEGUI would eventually trigger a stack corruption error.

Either rebuild all your sources with iterator debugging turned off, or rebuild CEGUI with it turned on.

Search for _HAS_ITERATOR_DEBUGGING and _SECURE_SCL in your project settings under C/C++, Preprocessor, Definitions. Also double check if you have it #defined somewhere in your own application.

This worked for me, but if it doesn't work for you then you probably should double check other compiler setting differences between CEGUI and your Application.


Hope that helps!
