Hm, I seem to have gotten a lot of these lately. Initially I thought they were somehow isolated to Weimer's Item Upgrade, or possibly Sim's Quest Pack, but apparently not. NPC Tweaks had a segmentation fault in the first component. Any idea why?

other mods:
BG2 Fixpack
Scriptable Spells
JPS' Portraits
Horn of Valhalla
Song and Silence (stores only)
Oversight (no kits, no improved Sendai - the latter was actually the first to display a seg fault, several attempts ago)
Solaufein
Chloe
Kivan
Auren Aseph
Crossmod Banters
BanterPack
1PP
Unfinished Business (this also returned some seg faults, so I tried NPC Tweaks again after uninstalling UB, but no change)

Here's how the error shows up:

Installing [Anomen]
Copying and patching 1 file ...
Copying and patching 1 file ...
/Desktop/BGII - SoA/Setup-NPC_Tweak.command: line 3: 446 Segmentation fault ./setup-npc_tweak
logout

What does it signify - corrupt install files? Corrupt game folder?

Can you reproduce this with a recent WeiDU version?
If so, report to the WeiDU forums on the pocketplane.

Yep, definitely updated to 2.08. There are a number of others that exhibit this behavior, and I'll report them there.

I'm happy to report that this is solved — and thanks for the referral! devSin recommended raising the stack limits.

If anyone else needs this (probably unlikely, but just in case), you'll have to run the various setup-xxx weiDu components from the game folder in terminal, and if you quit terminal in between any of them you have to reraise the stacks, like so:

"limit stacksize 64M" if your shell is zsh or tcsh (10.2)
"ulimit -s 65536" if your shell is bash (10.4 at least)

This seemed to allow the processes to do what was needed in each case.
