    Red face How to resolve a segmentation fault ??


    Hello,

    I'm using Suse 11.4 and using a program called Blender which will invariably crash with a segmentation fault when I perform a particular task. I've reported the problem to the people at Blender but they have not been able to identify the cause. I've tried reinstalling in different directories to no avail and so far I've not found any answers elsewhere.

    I've checked /var/log/messages and have found the relevant log reference (see below) but I'm not an expert in these matters. Is anyone able to identify the cause or at least how to begin to resolve the issue ? Thanks

    Could it be that pulseaudio is conflicting w/Blender somehow? Can you disable, or better yet, uninstall pulseaudio, at least temporarily, to see if that has anything to do with it?

    Smile re: segmentation fault

    atreyu,

    Thank you very much for the advice. I uninstalled pulseaudio but sadly the segmentation fault still occurred.

    There are two lines in the code which point to a (kernel?) error 4 and an error 6 in libflashplayer.so.

    Is there any way to interrogate the meanings of these errors ?
