How do you force Kyma to stop execution?

0 votes

What if I've written some clever script that makes lots of copies of something... clever, but wrong. And when I run it I get hundreds of dialog boxes that pop up one after another, boxes without end.

How do I politely ask Kyma to stop?

I've tried, Stop Evaluation, DSP Stop, DSP Restart, DSP Initialise, CMD-Q to quit. I've now shut down the paca and still the boxes come. I was going to try my axe but then I remembered seeing Mickey Mouse try that with the brooms and it didn't go well.

(I had to Force Quit Kyma in the end).

Hi Alan,

Does it stop if you click the Stack trace button? Please make an archive that includes this Sound and email it to us so that we can make sure you needn't resort to the axe!

No, it didn't stop when I clicked on the StackTrace button. Nor did it show a stack trace.

As soon as I got back in to Kyma I deleted the new parts of the signal flow and scripting I'd added. So that Sound doesn't exist any more in it's most crashing state. The odd thing is the Sound still causes repeated stacktraces (only 6 now) just from opening the file and I can't see why.  

I'll email it to you.
