Seg fault reasons

Greetings everyone!

I’m having problems with “Segmentation Fault (Core Dumped)” error, and I’m unable to find out why it is happening with my system, is there some way to find a log, or some way to track this error?

Kind regards,

A little more detail please. Is this during startup? Large dataset? Dataset you created yourself?


Hi Alan! Thanks for the quick reply!

So it occurs when I use pvpython and try to generate a RenderView, as explained in my earlier question here. But this time, I just wanted to see if there is some way to track any kind error, to solve this or at least get more information to bring here to expert users, for debugging purposes.

Kind regards,

The right way to track a segfault require to compile ParaView yourself in debug mode.
While not en hard task, it can be complex for one not accustomed with it. Let me know if you need help with that.

I’ve answered in your other topic.

Thanks for the answer! Didn’t know that! I will try to compile Paraview myself later.

Looking forward for your help!
