Error description

  • Headline:
    ********
    
    Unable to open a specific package(.sbs) in Rhapsody 8.0.5 on
    RHEL 6.4.
    
    
    Abstract:
    ********
    
    Attempts to open a specific package(.sbs) on RHEL, results in
    various error messages and at times leads to crash.
    
    
    Description:
    **********
    
    It is observed that certain graphics settings in a package unit
    file renders the same unusable on a Linux environment. It works
    fine and without any errors on a Windows environment.
    
    Attached is a sample package(.sbs) file 'PkgCNL.sbs' for
    reference. The package loads fine on Windows but when trying to
    load the same on Linux (RHEL 6.4), results in various errors (as
    can be seen in the attached screenshot 'rhapsody-problem.JPG')
    and may lead to crash as well.
    
    Its basically a line in the PkgCNL.sbs file; '- m_transform = 0
    0 1 0 0 1.17549e-38 ;' (line number 2287), that seems to be
    problematic and causing the problem. If we remove that line
    manually, we are able to load the package on RHEL as we. Seems,
    '1.17549e-38' is the problem.
    
    Workaround:
    ***********
    
    Manually modify the PkgCNL.sbs file; to remove '- m_transform =
    0 0 1 0 0 1.17549e-38 ;' (line number 2287).

    It is not clear what caused that.
    Attched the PkgCNL.sbs.fixed file that is the fixed file.
    Please rename it to PkgCNL.sbs befor using it.
