For me, the lates git sources of SimGear+FlightGear run on the current git and
latest cvs base, I have.

I observe no difference between cvs and git in the data/Shader and
data/Effects files - if yours differ, maybe that is the problem?

I see quite a few differences in data-cvs/Shaders versus data-git/Shaders, but the Effects directories are identical.

My problem is that I cannot run simgear-git + flightgear-git + fgdata-git ... this should be the new default for developers.  When I run all the git pieces together I get the segfault I reported. 

The segfault also happens when I run the git compiled code with data-cvs.  The problem does not happen when I run the CVS compiled code.

If I am the only one seeing this problem, then it must be something on my end.  I thought my system was pretty main stream and pretty current ... hmmm ....

Tim: is there a way to check out a version of the git code that represents the first conversion/import of the cvs repository before any subsequent changes were made?  I'm still a git-novice.

 There's a "last-cvs" tag in each of the repos. If you want to get the code that was the last thing from cvs, then git checkout last-cvs.
