[SOLVED] Mintinstall crashes every time

Postby Mountainman on Sat Oct 16, 2010 10:29 pm

Hi there,
every time i open Mintinstall. The Window disappers after a few seconds.
The console output is like that:
Code: Select all
rob@rob-Mint-KDE ~ $ mintinstall
add_categories took 1.482 ms
build_matched_packages took 0.173 ms
add_packages took 1674.002 ms
add_reviews took 180.167 ms
__init__ took 1946.418 ms
Segmentation fault


I found some errors in the systemlog:
Code: Select all

I use Linux mint 9 KDE 64 bit
Code: Select all
rob@rob-Mint-KDE ~ $ uname -a
Linux rob-Mint-KDE 2.6.32-23-generic #37-Ubuntu SMP Fri Jun 11 08:03:28 UTC 2010 x86_64 GNU/Linux

*EDIT* The problem is no longer present. I don't know why, but mintinstall now works correctly

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

I still have the issue. The segfault is somehow related to dbus or python-dbus but (crashes mostly in libdbus-1.so.3.5.7, but not always) I am having a hard time tracking the problem with gdb. What's worse is that I have two identical PCs (X220 Lenovo) that are both using linux mint with the same kernel and more or less the same packages. Yet on one of them mintinstall works, and on the other it segfaults brutally.

Can anybody give me some precious hint on the debugging of mintinstall?
