An error saying segmentation fault (or segfault, or SIGSEGV) in Ubuntu and other Unix-like operating systems, or saying general protection fault in Windows, is when a program attempts to access a part of memory that cannot be accessed, or which the program is prohibited from accessing. A segmentation fault is a kind of program crash, that is, an abnormal ...

After attempting to run wireshark from terminal and collecting a log: wireshark &> out.log the log was filled with things like (wireshark:6087): GLib-GObject-WARNING **: invalid unclassed pointer in cast to 'GtkScrollbar' (wireshark:6087): GLib-GObject-WARNING **: invalid unclassed pointer in cast to 'GtkWidget' . . . Upon googling these I came ...

This has nothing to do with gnome-terminal, when you hit Ctrl Alt F1, logged in from the virtual console and tried running bash, you got a segmentation fault core dumped which means that bash itself crashes. Anyway, what's happening is that your bash is entering an infinite loop. When bash first starts, it reads ~/.bashrc (actually, this is a simplification,...

This is reported as http://debbugs.gnu.org/24682. A workaround is to use ./configure CFLAGS=-no-pie .

Do not install via terminal. Download ns-allinone-2.35.tar.gz file from https://sourceforge.net/projects/nsnam/ Install the following dependicies sudo apt-get install tcl8.5-dev tk8.5-dev gcc-4.4 g++-4.4 build-essential autoconf automake perl xgraph libxt-dev libx11-dev libxmu-dev. Extract ns-allinone-2.35.tar.gz open ns-allinone-2.35/ns-2.35/linkstate/...

I had the same issue for 1 month, finally today I found how to resolve it. what I did was installing gdb and gimp-dbg: sudo apt-get install gdb gimp-dbg after that I ran: gdb gimp (gdb) run it shows that segmentation fault happens from /usr/lib/libamdocl64.so I'm using a proprietary video driver from AMD so this debug message shows that something is ...

Unlimited core dumps are not advisable in most situations, but are technically fine. A core dump only has "all the memory" the current process has. So at most it can only be as big as your ram + swap. Hopefully you have more free space then that. In real life they should be "small-ish" compared to total ram + swap. The file "should" end up in "the ...

I have started experiencing the same thing in Precise. To workaround this issue I added a file /etc/apt/apt.conf.d/00bugs which contains one line: APT::Cache-start 200000000; The segmentation faults no longer occur. I have opened a bug report for this: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/apt/+bug/1445436

This segmentation fault really should not happen. I suspect something is wrong with the binaries installed on your system - possibly because of the symbolic link you created. Try reinstalling GCC and all affecting libraries: sudo apt-get install --reinstall gcc gcc-4.6 gcc-4.6-base libgcc1 cpp-4.6 Specifically the cpp-4.6 package appears to be broken in ...

A core file is an image of a process that is created by the operating system when the process terminates unexpectedly. Core files get created when a program misbehaves due to a bug, or a violation of the CPU or memory protection mechanisms. The operating system kills the program and creates the core file. This file can be very useful in determining what ...

Coredumps have to be enabled in the kernel at /proc/sys/kernel/core_pattern which can be permanently set by sysctl kernel.core_pattern=$coredump_name e.g. sysctl kernel.core_pattern=core sysctl kernel.core_pattern=/var/crash/%E.%p.%t.%s %E gives the full pathname of the crashed program (with / replaced by !) %p gives the process ID of the crashed ...

Segmentation fault is caused by a bug in the application. Technically it means that application try to read or write to part of memory that doesn't belongs to it (or doesn't exist). It's of course forbidden to read or write to somebody else's memory and when system (kernel) detects this, it will force the application to quit.

According to this thread on the Ubuntu Forums (for which the solution was originally found on this thread): Question: When I click System > Administration > Update Manager it comes up (grayed out) and the small "Starting Update Manager" window comes up but when the bar is half filled it disappears. Answer: According to a forum thread from ...

I had the same problem briefly. I need to force nautilus to quit... $ nautilus -q so that dropbox could finished installing and then start it again manually by clicking on the folder icon on the side panel.

Just remove the db file .local/share/rhythmbox/rhythmdb.xml . It's probably corrupted and keeping Rhythmbox from starting. It will be recreated automatically, you will only lose some data like song ratings (data not included in file metadata, mainly). You will not lose your playlists. Give Rhythmbox a few seconds to start scenning music folders and ...

Try these once First try to re-configure it, if it doesn't help then follow the step 2. sudo pkill rhythmbox sudo dpkg-reconfigure rhythmbox Check after Log-out/ Restart. If first doesn't help then re-install rhythmbox after removing all configuration file: sudo apt-get autoremove rhythmbox sudo apt-get --purge remove rhythmbox sudo find / | grep ...

I'm an idiot. I had copied a bash function from somewhere that looked like this: md() { [ $# -eq 0 ] && { echo "$0 dirname [permissions]"; return; } [ -d "$1" ] && { echo "%1 already exists!"; return; } mkdir -m ${2:-0755} -p "$1" } Problem was that I had previously had an alias like alias md="mkdir" so when bash parsed the ...

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.

I was able to get this working by doing the following: Uninstall from the terminal sudo apt-get remove swordandsworcery-bin Download the deb from the link in the email "Your Humble Bundle order" (received after purchasing the humble bundle) Install the deb from the terminal (it failed from the software centre) with sudo dpkg -i swordandsworcery_1.00-1_amd64....

I fixed this issue permanently by entering CompizConfig Settings Manager (CCSM) —if you don't have it do sudo apt-get install compizconfig-settings-manager—, going into the Window Decorations options, and changing the Command setting to compiz-decorator. Backing out of this menu, then unchecking Window Decoration, allowing the desktop to reload, then ...

Solution: I tried many methods to bring it to normal and finally the following worked. I removed the folders ~/.gconf2 ~/.gnome2 ~/.compiz-1 And restarted X (Ctrl+Alt+Bksp) . Now window title bars are working as usual . But if I try to customize my themes, it goes back to being problematic I am happy with the default - Adwaita theme with Ubuntu-Mono-...

converted comment to answer There is a bug-report that included the error message you reported - it was logged against this launchpad bug Given that Minitube and Clementine are both QT multimedia apps, the resolution below would be a good candidate to try. The resolution was to remove the package qt-at-spi i.e. sudo apt-get remove qt-at-spi

It is known regression of 4.4.0-81-generic kernel. It affects many applications that use Java: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/linux/+bug/1699772 . Boot with previous kernel version or wait for the future kernel release.

Try re-installing the appmenu-gtk package: sudo apt-get install --reinstall appmenu-gtk I hope this works.

Use aptdcon, which communicates with apt-daemon via dbus so it doesn't need su or sudo, to reinstall the damaged packages. Probably your best chance is to reinstall ALL the packages. First, make sure there is no broken install pending a fix: aptdcon --fix-install Also make sure there is free space available on your disk: df -h Then, get your currently ...

Try installing the proprietary ATI drivers for your video card (called fglrx). You can find a fairly comprehensive how-to guide on this. As the guide itself says, however, the easiest way may be to use the Hardware Drivers manager. I'm not sure if this is accurate, but according to an earlier answer, the drivers manager can be found in Lubuntu under ...

When a machine starts to misbehave like this, it can be a RAM chip gone bad, causing a few bits to flip. Given the symptoms, it's possible that some library files were corrupted when they were installed. Reboot and run a memory test. Let it run for at least one full pass (keep it running over lunch or overnight). If any of the RAM chips is faulty, change it ...

Remove the nautilus-open-terminal extension. This is causing problems right now and there is an open bug about it (see here). This bug is now marked as fixed. If you are still experiencing the problem you may have another problem.
