#280 closed crash (Fixed)

freetype linking against Carbon

Reported by: andfarm@… Owned by: jeremyhu@…
Priority: Expected Milestone: 2.4.0
Component: x11-libs Version: 2.3.3 (xserver-1.4.2-apple42)
Keywords: Cc:


libfreetype.6.dylib links against Carbon for FSPathMakeRef. However, this ends up making Freetype unsafe to use from forking applications, such as urxvtd. (The symptom: crash as soon as you try to display something that requires a character that isn't in the default font.)

Is the use of Carbon here avoidable? If not, is there some way to make it safe for use in forking applications?
