[SOLVED] [Gnome 3.8] Skype core (core dumped) on i686 after upgrade

After upgrade to Gnome 3.8 - skype cann't start now (core dumped) on i686.
On x86_64 it works fine on Gnome 3.8

Re: [SOLVED] [Gnome 3.8] Skype core (core dumped) on i686 after upgrade

I updated on Monday via pacman -Syuu and Skype is segfaulting on me as well. I have KDE, not gnome.
This is on an i686 machine.

I seem to be getting the same today.. I only use Skype once in a blue moon, so not sure when this started.

Got some gdb love for you.

Re: [SOLVED] [Gnome 3.8] Skype core (core dumped) on i686 after upgrade

I'm getting the same error as nperry,  I'm guessing is related with the lib32-glib2 upgrade.

Re: [SOLVED] [Gnome 3.8] Skype core (core dumped) on i686 after upgrade

There is a bug report for arch: FS#34630 and an upstream bug report here:
https://jira.skype.com/browse/SCL-977
The upstream bug has a workaround for the time being.

Yes. I can confirm that. Just downgrade this package. All will work well.

And here's an available official repo from China.

http://mirrors.sohu.com/archlinux/multilib/os/x86_64/

I can't find other official repo with lib32-glib2-2.34.3-1-x86_64.pkg.tar.xz available except this one.

**** downgrade from 2.36 to 2.34. ****

Aoso, some may face the problem that gdm fails to startup. Temporary, I switch to other launcher to launch gnome-shell.

Hope this helps.

Re: [SOLVED] [Gnome 3.8] Skype core (core dumped) on i686 after upgrade

You can avoid downgrade by just installing in your home folder the one library that mess up things with skype.
Take a look here : https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?id=154571

The new lib32-glib2 2.36.1-3 fixes the problem.
