Update to glib2-2.36.1-1 Causes Skype to Segfault

Pretty much the title. I get a segmentatation fault from skype with glib2-2.36.1-1, and it works fine with glib2-2.34.3-1. However, using glib2-2.34.3-1 makes other program (such as dwb) not start either:

dwb: symbol lookup error: /usr/lib/gio/modules/libgiognomeproxy.so: undefined symbol: g_simple_proxy_resolver_new

The error for skype with 2-36 is simply:

% skype
zsh: segmentation fault (core dumped)  skype

This is skype version 4.1.0.20-6. I don't think I've done anything weird with any configurations --- I have a gtkrc-2.0 file but even with that moved it segfaults.

Can anyone help me resolve this issue? Thanks.

I experienced the same issue...

it is already in the bug tracker.. also upstream is aware

you can temporary use the workaround mentioned in the links if you're depending on skype

Re: Update to glib2-2.36.1-1 Causes Skype to Segfault

We have to wait for a fix in glib2 on i686 and lib32-glib2 on x86_64. Until then, there is a temporary fix: downgrading (lib32-)glib2.

Just go there and get (lib32-)glib2-2.34.3-1 for your arch smile

Same problem here, but the temporary downgrade has worked.

or just unpack 'lib32-glib2-2.34.3-1-$ARCH.pkg.tar.xz' somewhere and run skype as:

$ LD_PRELOAD=/home/d/Build/lib-gobject/libgobject-2.0.so.0.3400.3 skype

Re: Update to glib2-2.36.1-1 Causes Skype to Segfault

For me the easiest and fastest solution was to use pacman to downgrade w/ my pacman cached version.

pacman -U /var/cache/pacman/pkg/lib32-glib2-2.34.3-1-x86_64.pkg.tar.xz

hope that helps anyone looking for a quick fix.

@ViruSzZ, neat. Your solution is obviously better.
