Ubuntu :: Plasma-desktop Segmentation Fault?

Jan 31, 2011

I had a bad surprise today as I tried to start my Kubuntu: plasma-desktop segfaults when I try to start a graphical session (and I get into a black screen with a mouse that I can move, and I do get a notification for new updates appearing at the top of the screen, but that's all)... I can still login to console, but startx won't solve the issue. That's quite a serious issue and I can't find a workaround for now.

When I try to declare a large matrix type or vector type, say a matrix of 3000*3, or a vector 3000*1 something like that, when running the program it reported the segmentation fault. When I try a small matrix like 10*3 then it's fine. The matrix and vector type I used are from the numerical recipes.

CentOS 5 :: Yum Segmentation Fault

Apr 11, 2011

I did a Yum update last Friday. It was done before 5.6 was released so I still have 5.5 + various updates. Yum is now giving me a segmentation fault when I try to run it. I believe it has to do with an improperly synchronized version of sqlite which was updated and then Yum stopped working. I'm guessing that installing the latest Yum RPM will fix the dependency issues. Will this throw me out of sync with for instance updating to 5.6?

Ubuntu :: Segmentation Fault When Trying To Install ATI Drivers

May 25, 2011

I recently installed Ubuntu Lucid 10.04 64-bit on my desktop. I was trying to install the ATI Drivers for my graphics card (ATI Radeon HD5850) by using the guide: Search on google for "Ubuntu Lucid Installation Guide", from [URL]... Unfortunately I cannot post links yet. I was using the manual install guide. I followed the guide step by step and everything went OK without any errors, until I get to this step: fglrxinfo.

Ubuntu :: Perl Tkx Causing Segmentation Fault?

Dec 29, 2010

Running a clean install of Ubuntu 10.10 under VMWare Player on a Thinkpad with Win7. Have previously used Perl/TK for GUI apps to run under both Windows & Linux. Latest Activestate Perl (Windows) does not support Perl/Tk, recommends Tkx, so I wanted to see if Tkx would work under Ubuntu. Tried to install Tkx using cpan, got obscure failure indicating dependency problem. Found a recommendation to apt-get install tcl8.5-dev, and then cpan installed Tkx.

Note, perl 5.10.1 is installed in Maverick by default. apt-get upgrade says I have the latest perl, Tcl and TK. I installed Tkx version 1.09 (using cpan). Couldn't find any info on what perl / Tkx versions are compatible. Now Tkx is installed, but any attempt to run a script that uses Tkx causes a segmentation fault. apt-get installed pmtools to investigate. Even examining Tkx with pmtools can cause a seg fault, for example:

$ pmvers Tkx
Segmentation fault

Is Tkx known to work (or not work) under Ubuntu,version 10.10 or other versions? Any suggestions about what to try next?It's hard to find info about Perl Tkx because so many people put "Can u help, tkx in advance" or similar in postings about anything under the sun. I've read a lot of them.

Ubuntu :: Segmentation Fault On All Gnome Applications?

Sep 16, 2010

I am unable to successfully start either the XFCE or Gnome desktops, in Gnome the my wallpaper is displayed but that is all. This problem appeared yesterday night after my hard disk filled up, then all Gnome programs began to crash, also "df" failed to terminate. I was able to clear some space from the terminal (around 2 GB).

I was able to run an xterm so I attempted to load the components of Gnome manually from the terminal, to see which were problematic. I found that every application which uses Gnome fails to execute, producing a segmentation fault. A Java crash informed me that a "problematic frame" producing SIGSEGV was libgnomevfs-2.so.0. I ran md5sum on all libraries matching the pattern /usr/lib/*gnome*, the checksums are identical to those on a working Ubuntu installation, so it is unlikely to be corruption of a library.

I have managed to determine that the problem is not in GLib or GTK+ as I wrote a simple (hello world) GTK+ application which executes without problem.Furthermore (due to a lack of Gnome's network manager) I am without a network connection on the problematic computer.

Ubuntu :: Pidgin Crashes With Segmentation Fault

Feb 19, 2010

Using Ubuntu 9.10 & Pidgin 2.5.5 (upgraded from 2.5.2 while writing this post, but it did not fix the problem)This problem appeared after closing pidgin and trying to run it again i.e. restarting it (I have to restart it at some point after a long runtime, but that is another issue), it fully loads up (at least, it looks like it) and then instantly crashes with segmentation fault message. Judging from the first glance on the log, the crash has something to do with the windows live protocol.Of course, I have tried searching the web and this forum for an answer, but could not find any suitable one. There is one solution I have found, that is: (re)moving the .purple folder, but that "solution" is not really an option.

Ubuntu :: Segmentation Fault After Update When In VMware

Oct 3, 2010

I have been a Windows user for many years but heard lots of good things about Ubuntu and wanted to give it a shot. I have a VMware ESXi 4.1 server so I created a new VM (Ubuntu desktop 32-bit), downloaded the Ubuntu 10.4 32-bit desktop image, mounted it, and started the installation. Everything worked fine and I got a working Ubuntu system. I created a snapshot just in case I need to get back to this position.

I then saw a prompt from Update Manager and decided to update everything it told me to, which is 300 updates. At the end, I was asked to restart and I did. At that point, the system was not willing to start again. Here is what I get (... stands for omitted text):

Segmentation Fault
Gave up waiting for root device. Common problems:
- Boot args (cat /proc/cmdline)
- check root delay ...
- check root ....

[Code]....

I have no clue what to do at this point. I tried going back to the snapshot a few times but always ended up in the same state after installing updates. I tried installing VMware tools before the running the update but it didn't make a difference.

Ubuntu :: Segmentation Fault In Epiphany And Openshot

Aug 24, 2010

When I open up epiphany, it prompts me to either recover or don't recover my session.
No matter what the decision, it outputs a segmentation fault. I can load it with a -p switch, as well as loading it as sudo (just to test) so I'm kind of thinking if i can re set the session to default, then I will be able to get around it?

I haven't been able to test this though because I cant find where the config files for epiphany are! It doesn't output anything useful other than segmentation fault. As for openshot, I JUST installed it, and it installed with no errors, but when I try and run it, this is the output

Code:
OpenShot (version 1.1.3)
Process no longer exists: 27456. Creating new pid lock file.

Programming :: Segmentation Fault Error And GDB

Jul 23, 2010

When I compile my C program on SUSE, I receive a segmentation fault error. To my knowledge, this occurs when a program tries to recall memory but is not allowed to. So I'm using GDB for the first time to solve this problem. After a series of commands, I reach this point:

Code:
#0 0x00002b13e1bab127 in getdelim () from /lib64/libc.so.6
#1 0x000000000040167b in main () at dmsp_cusp.c:158

Here's the offending code in dmsp_cusp.c:
Code:
157 printf("enter the input file name:");
158 getline(in_fname);
159 fp3 = fopen(in_fname, "r");
160 if(fp3 == NULL) {
161 printf("can't open input file %s",in_fname);
162 exit(1); }

OpenSUSE :: Segmentation Fault In Skype?

May 5, 2010

Some time ago I had to reinstall all my packages under 64-bit OpenSuse 11.2. After that I can't get Skype working - Skype always gives me "segmentation fault" when trying to execute it (from command-line).

I've followed steps recommended in wiki, I've tried different versions (32-bit as well as 64-bit RPMs) downloaded from different repositories (including old 1.4.0.xx). Nothing changes anything.

I don't have any webcam and I've never had one, so I guess it cannot be related to that.

Server :: Can't Log Into Centos - 766 Segmentation Fault

Mar 5, 2010

I have a centos server running nagios for monitoring. I restarted the machine, it is actually a console server anyway. After getting to the login screen, I typed in my user name but it never propt for my password. I can't even ssh into the system. So I tried to use the installation cd and enter into rescue mode where I typed chroot and was able to enter into the root environment. I was able to configure a network interface in the rescue mode and can ping the machine at this point, though can ssh still. In the root environment, I tried running couple commands. like try to restart the sshd. When I typed /etc/init.d/sshd restart, I got an error saying:

766 segmentation fault.

when I vi any thing I get error:

segmentation fault.

how can I solve this problem? What is causes this. Even in the event of restarting the machine, I see so many fails with segmentation fault.

Programming :: What Can Trigger A Segmentation Fault

Jan 15, 2010

I have this basic program that is supposed to scan a string for a delimiter and output which segment of the string the user wants, like awk '{print $2}'. The problem is, I always get a segmentation fault when I run the code and I can't figure out what triggered it.

Here is my code:

Code:

int main(void) {
char *string = "my name is joe";
char dlimit = ' ', *good;
int index = 2, round = 0;
int i, place = 0, t;

[code]....

It keeps track of how many times the delimiter was found with round, and the position of the last found delimiter with place. index is to specify which segment of the string the user wants. One more thing, is it necessary to manually allocate memory with malloc() or calloc() when you can just initialize a variable and it be fine? Like:

Code:

int z = malloc(sizeof(int));
when you can:
int z;
