Frequent CCS crashes with MacOS Sierra

I have been using CCS 6.2.0 on OSX El Capitan (10.11) for a long time, with very stable results. I recently updated my OS to MacOS Sierra (10.12) and experience extremely frequent crashes of CCS. No changes have been made to my TI project(s).

The crashes seem to occur on every 2nd build of my project(s). E.g. I launch CCS > build stack + debug > build app + debug > CCS crashes > Relaunch CCS > build app + debug > build app + debug a 2nd time > CCS crashes. I've included my crash log from Mac OS below. 

This crash also occurs with CCS 6.1.3 and CCS 7.0.0 beta. I have tried reseting the Window Perspective. I have launched CCS w/ the -clean argument. I have also deleted the .metadata directory and re-imported my project(s). The issue persists.

I'm installing CCS 6.2.0 on another mac running MacOS Sierra (10.12) and will report on those results.

Additionally, the installer for CCS 7.0.0 beta is very unstable and crashed multiple times before I could get the installation to begin.

Crash log:

  • Upon trying to install 7.0.0 to another Mac running Sierra, I got a failure. The reference number is 29074, for any TI staff that can look into that.

  • CCS 6.2.0, running on another Mac w/ Sierra, works just fine. No crashes seen so far.

    Matthew,

    I believe none of the CCS releases, including 7.0 Beta, have been officially validated with Mac OS Sierra ( I think the plan is to validate before v7 final release). This has been noted in the CCS Download page for the 7.0 Beta. 

    We will see if we can reproduce the build issues with Sierra.

    You mentioned you got a failure when installing 7.0.0 to one of your machines. Could you please provide details about that failure and install logs?

    I did see the note that 7.0.0 beta is not validated for Sierra. Both 6.1.3 and 6.2.0 crash with the same error (as 7.0.0) on Sierra, so I don't think it's a beta issue.

    I'll try to dig up the logs from the failed install.

    I have updated my macbook to Sierra. I have not yet had any luck reproducing the crash. One of our team members did look at the crash log and believes that this may be a bug in SWT. We are looking into if there is a patch from Eclipse available. Thank you very much for including the crash log.

    John,

    Thank you for the response. What is SWT? I did a clean install of MacOS Sierra (format HD, install MacOS, did NOT transfer any data from old installation). The crashes persist. Is there anything else I can try?

    Matthew,

    SWT is the Standard Widget Toolkit that is used by Eclipse for user interface development.

    The Eclipse bug is here: https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=502711 if you are interested.  Not a whole lot of information in it.

    At this time I don't have anything else for you to try.   I am not sure why I don't see the issue on my Sierra.  It really sounds like this issue is hitting you hard and making your environment unusable.

    We are evaluating if we can create a fix ourselves with the information provided at the link above and include this with CCSv7 which is getting ready to ship very soon.  As we have not been able to reproduce this yet on our side would you be able to test out a fix if we can put one together?

    Regards,

    John

    Matthew,

    We have prepared a patch for CCSv7 that hopefully will resolve the issue that you are seeing.  Could you try copying the attached file into your ccsv6/ccs_base/eclipse/plugins folder.  ".renamed" will need to be removed from the end of the filename.  I would suggest backing up the existing copy of the file.

    Once you have copied in the new file it would be best to start CCS with the -clean option.  To do this run ccstudio -clean  This will ensure that the new plug-in is picked up.

    Thank you for your patience with this.  Would you also be able to send a screen capture of your system software overview?  We would like to compare this with what we have to see if there is some difference that explains why we have not been able to reproduce the issue.

    Hey John,

    Thanks for the speedy updates and posting the issue on the eclipse bug tracker. If I launch Eclipse directly (/Applications/ti/ccs620/ccsv6/eclipse), instead of ccstudio, I do not encounter the crash. 

    I'm willing to try the fix as long as it's a separate installation. I don't want to change anything in the currently working version of eclipse. If you can guarantee that the fixed version doesn't touch the existing installation then I'd be happy to give it a spin.

    -Matt

    Can I install CCSv7 and apply the fix to that installation?
