#4554 closed Bug (fixed)

Transmission GTK client crashes on start

Reported by: Photon Owned by: jordan
Priority: Normal Milestone: 2.42
Component: GTK+ Client Version: 2.41
Severity: Critical Keywords:


transmission-gtk fails to start with a segmentation fault. transmission-daemon can be started and you can connect to it via web interface, but the download/upload list is empty. Starting transmission-gtk with empty .config and .cache dirs works, but adding a torrent produces a segfault again. See also

Backtrace attached.

Hi Photon,

This is possibly fixed in r12971. Could you try a build from SVN or a nightly tarball from and see if it fixes the problem?

comment:2 Changed 10 years ago by Photon

The crash persists, but the trace look different, I think. New trace attached.

comment:3 Changed 10 years ago by jordan

trac's moderator module won't let me approve the new trace b/c it's got a duplicate filename, but I think I see the problem anyway :)

Care to try a third time, with r12973 or higher?

Had the same issue as Photon. Installed r12979 and the issue is resolved.

Sorry, that's me again. :) As I see, the fix will be backported to 2.4x. When is a release of a version including the fix planned? Or maybe the fix can be applied in the distribution packages temporarily? If so, which changes should be included into a patch?

Thanks, Photon
