Transmission segfault

Description

Trasmission periodically segfaults under Ubuntu 12.04.01 - installed from dpkg. It may be associated with use of a magnet link (which I typically don't use).

Syslog message: Nov 18 13:28:54 chevrolet kernel: [ 458.203131] transmission-da[1322]: segfault at 7f510000a00d ip 00000000004517d8 sp 00007f51192a6ad0 error 4 in transmission-daemon[400000+6d000]

Does this occur with 2.73?

comment:2 Changed 8 years ago by ethan-p

I just installed 2.72 from the ppa archive. It crashed almost immediately. I don't see a package for 2.73. Let me know if there is one I should look for.

Thanks!

Here is a new stack trace from 2.72 - largely the same thing: Reading symbols from /usr/bin/transmission-gtk...Reading symbols from /usr/lib/debug/usr/bin/transmission-gtk...done. done.

  • Resolution set to invalid
  • Status changed from new to closed

ethan-p, if you report this through Ubuntu's crash reporter, it will automatically generate a great backtrace with a lot of debugging information.

Please follow these instructions to have apport report a new bug about your crash that can be dealt with by the automatic retracer.

If you are running the Ubuntu Stable Release you might need to enable apport in /etc/default/apport and restart.

Now open your file manager, navigate to your /var/crash directory and open the crash report you wish to submit. If this fails you will have to open a terminal and file your report with 'ubuntu-bug /var/crash/_my_crash_report.crash' where _my_crash_report.crash is the crash you would like to report. If you get an error that you aren't allowed to access this report you will have to file it with 'sudo ubuntu-bug /var/crash/_my_crash_report.crash'.

I'm closing this bug report since the process outlined above will automatically open a new bug report which can then dealt with more efficiently. Thanks in advance for your cooperation and understanding.
