chromium & chrome segmentation fault

Just upgraded system and rebooted as linux-3.6.4 was installed.  Now chromium won't open.  I tried opening from a terminal and I get

Segmentation fault

.  I tried installing google-chrome from AUR but get the same thing.  Anyone else having this problem?

Edit:  I just realized that nautilus is doing the same thing!  I'll upgrade my test machine with Arch at work to see if it has any problems.

Re: chromium & chrome segmentation fault

I just had the same problem. In my case the root partition was full (because of the pacman cache) and because of that some things were not starting up properly.

Re: chromium & chrome segmentation fault

It is crashing for me too for some months now. I thought it was going to be automagically solved with some update, but I have seen like 4 chromium updates and it is still the same. I have done this:

% pacman -Rscn chromium
% sudo updatedb
% locate chromium (and removed every file found)
% pacman -S chromium
% chromium
[1]    9317 segmentation fault (core dumped)  chromium
%

What is happening?

Re: chromium & chrome segmentation fault

Got the same issue with google-chrome-dev for weeks...
I've never found any solution.

So i switched back to google-chrome-beta, which is working fine.

Re: chromium & chrome segmentation fault

Kinda same here (it worked properly about an hour before), but bit different. It works until a keypress. Chrome and Chromium, stable and beta.
Now I have to use UZBL...

update: I'm getting more and more crashes. All says just segmentation fault, but with gksu I got this:

(gksu:2443): Gtk-WARNING **: Failed to set text from markup due to error parsing markup: Error on line 1 char 57: Element 'b' was closed, but the currently open element is 'big'

I don't know what it means, so don't know that it's related or not.

What, so everyone's supposed to sleep every single night now? You realize that nighttime makes up half of all time?

Me, too. But I've just re-partitioned my disk and reinstalled the system, because I needed to install a Windows, too and it can't be done on a disk with GPT. I don't have any problems now. Do you use a disk with GPT or MBR? Don't know if it could have an effect or not...

Re: chromium & chrome segmentation fault

I use GPT, but it was working fine, just after some update it started to fail sad Goodbye Chromium, was nice while it lasted.

Re: chromium & chrome segmentation fault

I have troubles with firefox, chromium and thunderbird. Opera crashes to but it seems to be different (I'll try to find out).

I'm on 64bit with GPT, although this shouldn't be a problem. What is interesting is that I use btrfs, could this be a problem?

Re: chromium & chrome segmentation fault

After a full system upgrade last week, I too can no longer launch Chromium:

$ chromium 
Segmentation fault (core dumped)

$ chromium --version
Segmentation fault (core dumped)

Any ideas as to how I can debug this problem better? How do I increase the verbosity? Where is the core dumped to? I really enjoyed Chromium (I'm running GNOME 3, the GNOME browser is unusably slow be comparison even on a beast of a machine - I think it's fundamentally broken) but now I am relegated to using a less performant browser.

Re: chromium & chrome segmentation fault

For me, this problem was the $HOME/.config directory was a symlink to nowhere - a mistake in a script I use to manage dotfiles.

Maybe try deleting the $HOME/.config/chromium directory and try again.

Re: chromium & chrome segmentation fault

I solved it by removing ~/.pki

Thank you big_smile. I've been messing around for two days trying to figure out why everything is crashing around me... This solved the issue.
Now I just need to go back and clean the mess I made...
