Antidote freeze anyone?

Hi all,

I'm using Antidote on my Arch box (TL;DR for those of you who don't know what it is: a very nice - and proprietary - grammar/spellchecker for English and French). Since my last reboot (2018-08-08), it is not working anymore. It was working perfectly after the previous reboot, 2018-08-03 I think. I can start it manually from the command line: it seems to freeze and the expected GUI does not appear. I naively started it with `strace`:

- here's the strace log when I start the ELF64 binary itself: https://framabin.org/p/?d9c670403f6c134 … lzT0J7EmQ=
- here's the strace log when I start it through the sh wrapper: https://framabin.org/p/?b5933e765c0bf1c … q2J0/TaDQ=

Both links are protected by the password "antidote". As far as I can see, nothing conclusive. I also removed the ~/.antidote9, just in case before I start it, no luck so far.

I've no clue. Maybe you have some?

Thanks,

Aurélien.

PS1: yes, I contacted the technical support, I expect a quick answer and will post the follow-ups here, just it case someone else is interested.
PS2: there may be a lot of spelling/grammar mistakes in this post :-/

Edit: added password

It's not an AUR package. It's the kind of software you buy, download, install and run (so windowish in the 90s...).

It's not in the Official Repos, so this is the only appropriate spot left.

As a temporary workaround, it's possible to install the previous versions of `glibc`, `libxml2` and `icu`, see this reddit post.

Downgrading glibc is dangerous for most users (the other 2 as well but primarily glibc). The result is basically a partially upgraded system (since you're only downgrading certain packages) and other things may (will) break.

For proprietary software of this sort a basic chroot may help (freeze it at whatever you need, probably running debian or Ubuntu or whatever OS the distributor tests on. Not Arch).

If you read the post, you'd notice that he extracted an old glibc to /opt and modified rpath in the binary.

My bad, I misunderstood from 'install'.
