I'll close this issue upon release of 1.2.8 if nobody complains :)

i've incorporated a newer version of gcompletion to mdk proper, so i think this issue can be closed...

For the moment I just removed -DG_DISABLE_DEPRECATED from the configure script and all seems to work with glib-2.30.3 from homebrew.

A bug in macports was reported a while ago:


I've been able to reproduce it, but unable to fix it. It seems aprblom in g_completion_* functions. These functions were deprecated in 2.26, macports includes glib 2.30.

Here is the backtrace I get:

(gdb) bt
#0  0x000000010105eee2 in g_completion_add_items ()
#1  0x0000000100d04068 in mix_vm_cmd_dispatcher_new ()
#2  0x0000000100d04092 in mix_vm_cmd_dispatcher_new_with_config ()
#3  0x0000000100cf9a0b in mixvm_cmd_init ()
#4  0x0000000100cf96cd in mix_vmloop ()
#5  0x0000000100cf95fc in main ()

If I comment the line, mixvm starts, but fails on quit.

I guess it's worth checking how they solve it in GNU/Linux distros. However, probably a custom implementation of g_completion_* would be the thing to do considering g_completion_* is not maintained.
