mintinstall segfault after opening

Postby jumpjoe on Tue Jan 24, 2012 6:52 pm

The bug that seems to be affecting 64-bit systems for Linux Mint KDE 12 has somehow arrived on Linux Mint 12 (non-KDE). When starting mintinstall I get

/usr/lib/linuxmint/mintInstall/mintinstall.py:252: SyntaxWarning: import * only allowed at module level
def get_status_description(self, transaction):
/usr/lib/linuxmint/mintInstall/mintinstall.py:260: SyntaxWarning: import * only allowed at module level

wTree.get_widget("main_window").show_all()
__init__ took 9596.680 ms
show_category took 16.401 ms
Segmentation fault

The location of the segfault appears to be *mostly* libdbus-1.so.3.5.7, but not always:

[149870.603164] mintinstall[30546]: segfault at 8 ip 00007f6a7ac9f8da sp 00007f6a6798bb10 error 4 in libglib-2.0.so.0.3000.0[7f6a7ac3f000+f4000]

What's bugging me is that I have two Lenovo X220, both with Linux Mint 12 and more or less the same packages (the only notable difference is that one has cinnamon installed, while the other has not), and
this problem appears only on one of them. I am thinking it might be some configuration/caching issue for dbus or python-dbus, but I am not sure where to look.

BTW, I tried the obvious reinstallation (mintinstall, python-dbus), byte-compilation (update-python-modules), and reboot.

The latest, I assume, on both systems:

Code: Select all
||/ Name                                Version                             Description
+++-===================================-===================================-======================================================================================
ii  mintinstall                         7.3.5                               Software Manager

mintinstall 7.3.5 was released on January 2nd. Has it not been working since then?

You may try forcing an update from the command line:
Code: Select all
sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade

I am experiencing this same issue, same version of mintinstall and same(ish) segfault on libdbus-1.so.3.5.7. I'm running in VirtualBox. Forcing the update through apt-get did not resolve this for me.

Thanks for any additional help you might provide.

SylentBobNJ, if you are using KDE, you may try as a workaround to install Muon. It is similar to Software Manager. You can install it using Synaptic.

Thank you! I did end up reading some other posts here regarding this issue and saw muon as an alternative. I've since installed it and it works. Not thrilled with losing Software Manager, I enjoyed reading the user feedback but it'll do.

Again, thanks for your assistance!
