I am getting '4xxx Bus error core (dumped)' while trying to open sublime text by using this command

/usr/lib/sublime-text-2/sublime_text --class=sublime-text-2 "$@" . 

It was worked perfectly until yesterday. Any remedy for this. Do I need to re install my sublime?

I have the same issue(Arch). Try to downgrade glibc package, since gdb gives me 0xb7ff6b57 in memset () from /lib/ refers to which is from glibc package). Unfortunately, I have a lot of dependencies from glibc-17, so, I can't downgrade it right now. – soon Jun 26 '13 at 14:04
OK, downgrading from glibc-2.17-6 to glibc-2.17-2 doesn't solve the problem, and I can't downgrade more because of dependencies. Just replacing with doesn't work too. – soon Jun 26 '13 at 14:56

The problem was with SublimeCodeIntel package. Just move(or remove) it outside of Packages folder:

mv <path to sublime-text>/Packages/SublimeCodeIntel ~/

Then run Sublime Text and re-install SublimeCodeIntel from PackageControl:

Ctrl+Shift+P -> Package Control: Install Package -> SublimeCodeIntel.

Thanks a lot for this answer! Worked like a charm. – Pablo Lalloni Jun 27 '13 at 13:34
Actually, reinstalling didn't work at all for me, but at least it helped me to identify what was the source of the problem. I just uninstalled SublimeCodeIntel and goodbye segmentation faults:) – Alter Lagos Aug 19 '13 at 22:23
