Delphi XE8..Tokyo 10.2 Release 3: Access Violation at address xxxxxxxx in module ‘delphicoreide###.bpl’ whenever I try to create a new unit or form. How to fix it?

[WayBack] Ouch: “It’s due to some Castalia code, that’s merged in Delphi since XE8. It’s only possible to reduce this issue, so it will happen less often… – Thomas Mueller (dummzeuch) – Google+

“It’s due to some Castalia code, that’s merged in Delphi since XE8. It’s only possible to reduce this issue, so it will happen less often. Use: Tools – Options – Editor Options – Color – Structural Highlighting and switch everything off. Looking at how the code is integrated into the IDE, this results in less editor parsing and repainting. Irrespective of that, the handler that causes the Access violation is still attached to the editor. So basically, we will have to wait for this to be fixed in 10.3.”

The errors in 10.2 are related to “EditorStructuralHighlight.TStructuralHighlighter.EvQuery” – Google Search, but older versions can have a different path.

Lets hope that by a new Delphi version has been released that fixes this, but do not expect older versions to get fixes for it.

For XE8, it is enough to disable Castalia, which is on the list of packages to disable in …/Native/Delphi/Scripts/List-Delphi-Installed-Packages.ps1.

More recent versions have the old Castalia code base much more rightly integrated, so the only way is to disable Structural Syntax Highlighting in the Editor options.

I have seen this happen too, but so intermittently that I could not point it back to this code (especially since I usually have Model Maker Code Explorer and GExerts loaded which makes it harder to trace back issues to actual Delphi things).

how can I free up space on /boot as “openSUSE-2014-462” fails to install on openSUSE 12.3 x86_64

Posted by jpluimers on 2018/11/30

From a long time ago:

[WayBackhow can I free up space on /boot as “openSUSE-2014-462” fails to install on openSUSE 12.3 (x86_64):

Installation of kernel-desktop-3.7.10-1.40.1 failed:
(with --nodeps --force) Error: Subprocess failed. Error: RPM failed:     installing package kernel-desktop-3.7.10-1.40.1.x86_64 needs 16MB on the /boot filesystem

Based on that thread, I figured out the steps:

Not all Fritz!Box devices can be upgraded to the most recent firmware

Posted by jpluimers on 2018/11/30

I forgot to document this earlier.

Many Fritz!Box devices cannot be upgraded to recent firmwares. The behaviour differs on hardware revisions of the same model. I’ve seen it happen on Fritz!Box 7360 devices, but others are could be affected too.

You can get the firmware revision using the trick here: FRITZ!Box call

If your hardware revision is affected, do not expose it to the outside world.

You could still turn it into a local switch though: [WayBackConvert FRITZ!Box 7360 to Managed Switch (or even Access Point) having it’s own IP address: Setting up the FRITZ!Box as an IP client.

I did this before even discovering about the hardware revision limits as I wanted to keep the full phone history when migrating from ADSL to fiber (which came with a brand new Fritz!Box 7490) and could use the extra LAN ports.

Fritz!Box 7360 hardware revision v1: limited to firmware 06.3x
