[SOLVED] GNOME 3.10 segfault (libc)


Aha! thanks. It seems this is the thread I shoud have followed[0].

I currently have:


I reverted pulseaudio and libpulse to 4.0-2 (as far as i know, the previous release):

    # I had the old packages there from when I last updated
    cd /var/cache/pacman/pkg
    pacman -U libpulse-4.0-2-i686.pkg.tar.xz pulseaudio-4.0-2-i686.pkg.tar.xz

I *didn't* revert gtk3 since the previous version was 3.10.1-1, and according to this bug report[1] that causes a segfault when you click on the activities button, which was fixed in 3.10.2-1.

All working now!

Hi all,

I managed to get gnome-shell 3.10 on my Arch VM.
GDM starts up as expected, but when I log in I get the "Oh no! something has gone wrong"/logout message.

looking through dmesg reveals:

gnome-settings-[381]: segfault at 1 ip b6df2afb sp bfcea86c error 4 in libc-2.18.so[b6cb6000+1a9000]
gnome-settings-[430]: segfault at 1 ip b6da8afb sp bf96bd6c error 4 in libc-2.18.so[b6cbc000+1a9000]
gnome-shell[439]: segfault at 1 ip b6937afb sp bf919f3c error 4 in libc-2.18.so[b67fb000+1a9000]
gnome-shell[501]: segfault at 1 ip b692fafb sp bfed982c error 4 in libc-2.18.so[b67f3000+1a9000]

running gnome-shell --replace from my tty terminal gives a few errors, but nothing out of what I would normally expect starting gnome-shell, besides the segfault.

OpenGL Warning: glXyzNV not found in mesa table (a bunch of these for different Xyz)
Gjs-Message: JS LOG: GNOME Shell started at [datetime]
(gnome-shell:708) Gjs-WARNING **: JS ERROR: could not get remote objects for service org.gnome.SettingsDaemon.SmartCard path /org/gnome/SettingsDaemon/SmartCard

Window manager warning: Log level 16: Could not initialize NMClient /org/freedesktop/NetworkManager: Unit dbus-org.freedesktop.NetworkManager.service failed to load: No such file or directory

Segmentation fault (core dumped)
The segfault is the only thing that alarms me here; the other warnings/errors are ones I usually get and gnome-shell starts up fine with those.

How can I fix this, or at least work out what's wrong? I found only one similar thread[1] where th segfault was coming from libc, but in that case the user had testing repos enabled and some packages from git, whereas I don't - my packages are all straight from the standard Arch repos.

Any help would be handy.
