Hello,

I just built GNU LilyPond 1.6.6 from the Debian sources. I upgraded from
1.4.12 because that gave problems with the melody I wanted to set. The
whole system was built on Debian woody (stable).

The result was not as expected:

error:

I'm not exactly sure why it happens, but a small change in
your example seems to solve the problems, see below.


There is one question that has nothing to do with this crash, but
someone may know the answer: the single bars must not the notmal bars,
but 2/3 of their length, and lifted slightly. I would like to define
\bar "'". Another bartype is a bar that is only 2/3 in length, but it
remains in the middle, it is not lifted, So that would require a second
definition \bar ",". I can't figure out how to do this.


Take a look at the example file input/test/ancient-font.ly
(Go to lilypond.org, click on Documentation:Index and then on
tips-and-tricks and search for ancient-font.) For the lifted version,
you may have to use the extra-offset property.

Note, though that the GrandStaff context will give you SpanBars,
i.e. a bar lines that cross all the staves, probably not what you
want. One possibility could be to remove the Span_bar_engraver
from the GrandStaff context if you still want the braces in the
margin.


The score that crashed lilypond:
...
global =  \notes {
\property Score.timing = ##f
\property Voice.Stem = \turnOff


%Removing the Stem objects completely seems to break something, try
% to just make them invisible instead:
\property Staff.Stem \override #'transparent = ##t

% Note also that any setting for the Voice context here will not
% make any effect, since the actual music appears in the Voice
% contexts one, two, three and four, not in the default contexts
% where you use the \global identifier. Set it for the Stem
% or Score instead, since that will be inherited to all Voice
% contexts it contains.


%  \transpose bes
%  \key a \major
}


melodyA = \notes % \transpose bes
{
\key a \major
\stemDown


% \stemDown doesn't make sense if you remove the stems, right?
