• gnome-control-center segmentation fault


    cant open gnome control center
    cant open sound options
    cant open background options
    etc etc etc
    can open tweak tool and everything else fine, but control center or anything from “inside” that has a segmentation fault and crashes.

    problem arose on the ~4th nov. the most recent batch of gnome updates does not affect the issue.

    in terminal
    running “gnome-control-center”

    Segmentation fault (core dumped)
    

    running “strace -e open gnome-control-center” gives

  • can you try this in /etc/systemd/coredump.conf.d/custom.conf

    [Coredump]
    Storage=none
    

    then reload by doing this: systemctl daemon-reload

    EDIT: You may need to go into tty to do this if unable from the desktop. Use the CTRL + ALT + FN + 1, 2, or 3 key functions after getting to your desktop. Probably safer that way anyways.

    reload systemctl & reboot
    no change.

    gnome control center and any app inside that category segmentation faults, [for eg sound options, background options, networking options, all crash. non-control center apps are fine, eg tweak tool]

  • can you try coredumpctl list
    post your output here so that we can see the coredump information.

    more information in man coredumpctl

    we can try to use that information to find the name or PID of the coredump
    Secondly, be prepared to remove any configuration files that you created above as they most obviously didn’t do anything to fix issue.

    from your first post i removed the changes made after they didn’t resolve the issue so everything was as before.

    i have not had the chance to get the machine to try your next instructions [its used as a tv box so dont always have it to myself]

    however, since the last few updates i am now getting this error upon launching gnome-control-center in the terminal =

    gnome-control-center: error while loading shared libraries: /usr/lib/libptcoregtk-4.0.so.18: unexpected PLT reloc type 0x3734315b
    

    holding off on doing anything for the moment as tv box gets most use at the weekend. thanks very much for your help so far by the way.

  • Hi @gerry-g
    First, I will help you out as far as my knowledge base allows me too. I’ll do my best however, please keep in mind that I am no guru at some of this.
    So since the first command didn’t do anything, we’ll have to try something else.
    Let’s continue with the orignal error message before we continue on with the 2nd one thereafter.

    I’m a bit confused about a couple of things. First, systemd default behaviour is too generate for all processes on your system, coredumps.
    But your seeing those and as far as I understand, you cannot open the control, sound, background, etc settings / options.

    Is there a lib file missing?
    Can you check to see if you have the missing lib file: libptcoregtk-4.0.so.18 per your output?

    There might be lib file incompatibilities; however, I can’t see why or how this could or would come about as your system will remove those incompatible files per other configuration executions that tell processes within your system that something needs to be replaced by a different lib file.

    Or instead of having libptcoregtk-4.0.so.18, you have an older version of it and hence your system can’t find that lib file version that it is supposed to have per the gnome-control center’s expecting it to have that lib file.

    Can you go into /usr/lib/ and see if what version of that particular lib file is existing if at all?

    Something that may or may not be extreme but what about uninstalling and then reinstalling gnome-control-center ?

    Also, can you check to see if this is existing: /etc/security/limits.conf
    with this in it * hard core 0

    That should help with the listing of coredumps.

    EDIT: I was having a look at your strace output again and having a look at the missing lib file? It states that some lib files are missing. Can you go into /usr/lib/xxx and see for yourself if those various directories are existing? And then see if those lib files within those folders are existing?
    YOu’ve got a number of files that are also missing there.

  • got some time to dive deep into this and it just kept leading further down the rabbit hole. it was requiring more effort than it seemed to me to be worth it. im fairly sure it was a trivial library missing, but how the library went missing or wasn’t there in the first place i have no idea. its just a tvbox, so it only took 30m to start from scratch and get everything back to the way it was so thats what i did, i know thats a real windows solution to turn it on and off again but everything is perfect now and everything works so im wondering if perhaps maybe it was just one of those random glitchy installs. i know thats a cop out way to solve the problem but its jsut for a tvbox [install chrome & spotify, gpodder and restore there configs = finished]

    thanks for your help and it was cool to learn about coredumps and traces.

  • Hi.
    I’m terribly sorry for this late reply. Haven’t been here since you last posted 7 days ago.
    Don’t really have a bunch of time to do the things that I used to do here before (help others out on a consistent and frequent basis).

    However, I"m certainly glad for you that the issue was/is resolved.
    Even if it is a " cop out" way to resolve issues.
    Sometimes, that’s just the quickest and simplest route and it obviously worked well for you and no doubt, from your angle, it was far more important to resolve your issue using the best route available.

  • just a follow up. baby number two is almost here, and counter intuitively i have had a bit more time to mess around with this issue. after i reset the machine and got everything up and running it was fine for a while. until i installed and used pulseaudio-equalizer. using this then restarting breaks your gnome settings etc from opening, im convinced. i even reinstalled again and everything was fine until install, use and reboot after pulseaudio-equalizer. finally after another re-install and just not installing/using pusleaudio eq, everything is as expected. everything works fine. so to me the issue is pulse eq somehow breaks core parts of gnome.

    if anyone else comes across this issue, dont install pulse eq.

    to be clear. removing eq, reinstaling pulse, deleting home user pulse config etc etc etc doesn’t fix this.

    i wont be diving into this anymore as everything is humming along nicely now. i do still need to lower bass on speakers but il do that to the actual speakers themselves.
