Gimp crashes with core dump

The package is updated and I even tried to uninstall and reinstall it with no success.
When I run it I get (after 6 seconds):

Bus error (core dumped)

Any suggestions?

Re: Gimp crashes with core dump

If pacman installed it, then reinstalling it shouldn't make a difference.

Did the GIMP run correctly previously? Did you change anything recently or did it "just happen"?

Have you tried starting it with a clean configuration, by moving or deleting the "~/.gimp*" directory?

No suggestions, but, if you feel up to the task, you could follow this guide and post some of the information gleaned back here.  It might give us more insight.

Re: Gimp crashes with core dump

It seems it "just happened" smile but it could be after an update (though not really sure when / what...). Here is gdb output, which is greek to me (eheh):

Re: Gimp crashes with core dump

oO libreoffice does not work! May it be related?

$ libreoffice 
/usr/lib/libreoffice/program/oosplash: error while loading shared libraries: libuno_sal.so.3: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

For some weird reason everything stopped working pff...

Re: Gimp crashes with core dump

libuno is specific to libreoffice, so no, they are not directly related.  But I suspect they are both symptoms of the same problem - I suspect a partial upgrade.  Have you run a `pacman -Syu` recently?

This is either from a partial upgrade, or there is something wrong with your linker - the later is highly unlikely.

Re: Gimp crashes with core dump

Yes, I run pacman -Syy and pacman -Syu every now and then to look for updates.

UPDATE: My pc suddenly started to slow down and become unusable. I had to shut it down using the button. Then, at the boot, systemd performed the automatic fsck which failed. I had to re-run it manually and it discovered lots of obscure errors (to me). Like inode 294581 ref count is 2; should be 1. Fix<y>? Since it gave me only the yes option I accepted everything. There were like 6 or 7 types of different errors but now works again.

Now volumeicon gives me the same error as gimp (identical, with the bus stuff), it is probably a deeper issue than gimp itself.
Here are the core files for Gimp and volumeicon, in case anyone is able to read them: https://drive.google.com/folderview?id= … sp=sharing

I thought fsck had fixed the issue, however Gimp and volumeicon still don't work. On the other hand, I re-run pacman and completely installed libreoffice again. Fortunately now it works!


EDIT: evince does not work. Same error... I'm starting to think there is a problem with dbus here...

Re: Gimp crashes with core dump

Glad I was wrong about the partial upgrade suspicion.  Could these be symptoms of a failing harddrive? (actual question, I don't know, I'm brainstorming).

It seems smartctl is often recommended to check for this, but I have no experience relevant to harddrive failure.  The fsck errors, and the fact that a reinstall of a package helped seems to suport this suspicion though: when the package was reinstalled it may have been written to a different region of the disk.

Re: Gimp crashes with core dump

I googled dbus Bus error (core dumped) and got this:
http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=2106557

it's the same errors (even the disk ones!). However I tried cloning the account and it got worse. I restored it and now I'm at the same point as before... sad
