Ubuntu :: Compiz SegFault Randomly In 11.04?

May 6, 2011

I am on a fresh install of Narwal. I've switched to classic because unity wasn't mature enough IMO. Just installed ccsm and now my display will crash randomly after running for a short while.

Ubuntu :: Tooltips And Dropdowns Randomly Not Appearing In Compiz?

Jun 28, 2011

I've been having an issue for the past several months where, when Compiz is enabled, items with tooltips will not show the tooltip when hovered over until I move the mouse slightly. To see a demonstration of this, go here. Note that this does not happen when Metacity is enabled instead of Compiz. The other part of this issue is that some dropdown menu items will not appear until I mouse over them, similarly to the problem with tooltips. You can see a brief demonstration of that in the final few seconds of the first video, but it can be seen in more detail here. Despite the title, the problem appears in both Wine and native applications.Similarly to the first problem, this issue does not occur when Metacity is enabled in place of Compiz.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: PSX Crashes With A Segfault?

Feb 19, 2010

When attempting to run pSX on Ubuntu 9.04 (and the 9.10 livecd), it crashes with a segfault. I -have- read [URL] and tried shutting down pulseaudio as recommended there. However:

$ sudo /etc/init.d/pulseaudio stop
* PulseAudio configured for per-user sessions
$ sudo killall pulseaudio


How do I get pSX working? I tried copying the psx.ini file from another machine because the thread says pSX works fine after you change the sound device used, but it still segfaults when I try running it.

Ubuntu :: Unable To Access KDE Desktop Due To Segfault

Apr 16, 2010

For the past few weeks my system has been exhibiting some strange behavior. The first of these instances has been in the form of a total system lockup necessitating a power cycle -- ie. no kernel panic or oops, but cessation of all on-screen activity and an unresponsive mouse and keyboard. ( The first lockup occurred when the monitor was powered down)

Just a few days ago, I started noticing something else : Launching Firefox (3.6.4pre) resulted in it locking up near start-up especially if I was logged into Gmail. After that I experienced a total system lockup and then another one which has placed me in the situation as suggested in the title.

Specifically, KDM and the KDM login manager will start-up and I will be allowed to type my password. Immediately after that when the first of the icons in the KDE start-up animation starts to come into focus the screen goes black and I am returned to the KDM login manager -- I can enter my password again and continue this process ad infinitum.

Trying to diagnose the issue, I attached GDB to KDM. It seems that after I enter my password one or more of the KDE start-up processes dies with signal 1 or to be more specific :


Program received signal SIGUSR1, User defined signal 1.
0x00007f4ae742d3c3 in select () from /lib/libc.so.6

Ubuntu Multimedia :: X11 Segfault With Tri Monitor Dual Gpu

Jul 31, 2011

I have tried to setup a workstation with 3 monitors on two ati videocards, the goal being to span the desktop across all of them.

The process was not difficult at all, but after login X11 crashes and I am left with a console. I am fortunately able to login in safe mode, but I would like to ask for help in debugging this issue.

Here I will try to give as much detail as possible, starting with my system specifications:


The first card, the ATI Radeon HD 4650 is capable of running two monitors at the same time. The monitors, for all it matters, are three identical ACER P206HV 20" connected with their analog interface (due to missing cables which I will buy soon). Resolution 1600x900 each. My motherboard is an AsRock 870 Extreme3 mounting an AMD Athlon II X4 640 3 GHz processor and 8 GB of RAM.

When asked by Ubuntu, I installed the ATI Caralyst driver version 11.6 and set it up for using Xinerama.

As I said, this setup works fine if I login in safe mode, but crashes X11 otherwise (even in classical mode - no Unity). By inspecting the logs (attached) I found this (notice the segfault)


As a test, I tryed to configure Catalyst without Xinerama, an this works, but of course I end up with two separate desktop, which is not what I want. In this mode, xrandr seems to work correctly


After some research I found that XRandR does not support desktop spanning over multiple GPUs, so Xinerama is the only way to go in my case. Since the two are not compatible with each other, after login in safe mode I see that XRandR is disabled


One more test consisted in disabling the XRandR module in the config files, as found in some posts: edits in /etc/X11/xorg.conf


configuring the ati driver:

Ubuntu Multimedia :: All Music Players Crash - Segfault?

Feb 4, 2011

Rhythmbox crashes on startup, Clementine crashes once I try to play any file, Banshee crashes after the first second of any file. Totem actually still works, but it's not a very satisfying media player. :P This occurred suddenly after working fine for, well, months. I read that I should check whether I have the standard up-to-date gstreamer/pulseaudio/liborc versions installed, this seems to be the case.

Here the terminal output for all crashes:

Ubuntu :: GTK Win Decorator Segfault When Clicking On Menu Icon

May 25, 2011

I am running 11.04, and was running under Unity, and then moved back to Gnome 2.23.1. I am having a segfault occur any time I click on the window menu icon for any window. Once this occurs all the menu bars disappearing and I cannot move any of the windows, minimise/maximise, and while I am able to close most windows via their menu's it is really annoying! To get it back up I have to call gtk-window-decorator from the command line. This is how I found out it was a segfault.

Software :: How To Debug Ns-2 Code For Segfault

Jun 14, 2010

$ cat segfault.c
int main(void)
char *s = "hello world";
*s = 'H';


So, now we know where exactly the problem occures. I know only these three commands to debug using gdb. But in case of ns-2 code, I don't know how to use gdb.

I changed a routing protocol's C++ code in ns-2 and successfully recompiled ns-2 but when I run any tcl script with that particular protocol, I get 'segmentation fault'. Now I want to trace what part of the code is causing this. I have tried using 'printf's at suspectable places. Is this possible to debug ns-2 code with gdb just like the segfault.c above? I am useing fedora 9.

Programming :: Segfault In Program Using Pthreads

Mar 16, 2010

I am trying to write a peer to peer application in C++ using pthreads library. There are few types of nodes that run in the program. The 'beacon' nodes form the core of the network. The ordinary nodes 'join' the network by sending join requests to the beacon node. So, my program runs till the join requests and responses are received. When I try to 'connect' using connect function from the socket library, I get a segfault. I am not sure if the segfault occurs for the connect function, because sometimes the program just runs to completion. It could be an issue related to threads or memory allocation.

When I run gdb, it shows me the following:
(gdb) run b2-n00.ini
Starting program: sv_node b2-n00.ini

Slackware :: Upgrade To 13.1 Causes Segfault In Program That Ran Under 13.0

Mar 10, 2011

I have a custom program that has been running on Slackware since about 2004. It was running fine on Slackware 13.0, but an upgrade (following the procedure in UPGRADE.TXT) to 13.1 causes the program to segfault on a read/write op to the serial port (details here).

what might have changed between 13.0 and 13.1 that might affect serial port programming? I've been through CHANGES_AND_HINTS but nothing is jumping out at me.

Ubuntu :: Opera Segfault Closed Gnome-session - And GParted ?

Sep 12, 2010

I was using GParted to move and resize a few partitions on my external HDD that I use for backup purposes. Well while this was going on, I was using Opera to reply to a post on the forums and Opera segfaulted, which in turn crashed GNOME. Gnome restarted, I logged back in, my external HDD was still reading/writing furiously and GParted won't open.

So I know that the GParted I started is still running, although the handle that GParted had on its GUI is still locked - so I can't open a new GParted GUI - and the existing GParted GUI has closed - so now I can't check on the progress of my partition operation.

Debian :: Colord-sane Segfault During Boot

I just saw this message in the syslog and wondered if it could have anything to do with my previous problems with LXDE crashing:

I have read a number of bug reports regarding this issue and it appears to go back about two years. It was supposedly fixed but that does not appear to be the case unless there is something peculiar with my Wheezy 7.8 installation.I just found this on a Ubuntu bug report. It is related to a colord-sane but not necessarily exactly the same as what I am experiencing.This is a libsane bug, not a colord bug. If you want to to work around it, change /etc/colord.conf to have UseSANE=false

I hear that "The working directory is not writable" is nothing to worry about and is just something that is complains about for no reason, but I can not decipher.
"Jul 8 22:10:49 localhost kernel: named[27073]: segfault at 00002aaaac0000d8 rip 00002aaaac0000d8 rsp 0000000040e78f58 error 15 "
I know segfault is having some memory problem at 00002aaaac0000d8 but does rip mean insertion point? What is rsp? Where do I find out what error 15 means?

Debian Configuration :: Nautilus Segfault Preventing Login By Gdm

Mar 5, 2010

I removed my .gnome and .nautilus folders and .notifier file. it is working now. I do not know exactly which of these 3 fixed it but I hope this might help someone else!I have some major issue with nautilus which is preventing me from loogging in into my system which is kind of criticle this weekend.I'm running Squeeze with latest updates.

The problem:Today gnome gave some problems caus my taskbar was suddently gone. I couldn't get it back to i reinstall gnome-desktop and updated my whole system. At the update some yes/no questions on a blue screen asking me to restart cups etc had corrupted yes/no buttons. Weird character sets were shown. Well that can happen sometimes i thought.After reinstalling gnome i can't login anymore. My screen keeps flashing while it shows the loading icon of the mouse.Anyone got suggestions? I can't find similar problems on the internet, only problems that happen while already logged in. In my case the segfault prevents gdm starting!

Ubuntu Servers :: Entering Correct Password For Sudo Results In Segfault After 2 Attempts

I cannot sudo nor log into a second ssh session on my Ubuntu 10.10 server edition headless setup. Entering an incorrect password works as expected but the correct password gives errors, and on the second attempt a segfault. I recently changed my password as the old one was about to expire, that was 3 days ago, I can't find evidence that I have sudo'ed or logged in a second session since, I have been logged into it via ssh throughout all of it and I am still currently logged in. What should I do to correct this problem? I'm worried that by turning it off I will lose all access. Is the only option using a live cd to change the password?
