qt sigfpe arithmetic exception

  • I'm pretty new to qt and i'm trying to create a widget that showing my webcam using qt and opencv. As the title has stated that i'm stuck at tracking the sigfpe arithmetic exception. The odd thing about this issues is that 2 days ago, my code worked, but now it's not. After doing some research, i discovered that this issues have been addressed in multiple topic, with multiple solving method, but i don't think it would work for me

    ok, lat me wrap things up a bit, when i run my code, the process ended forcefully, crashed. Then i run debugger, which indicated "sigfpe arithmetic exception" in line 6 (myvideocapture.cpp), line 10 (mainwindow.cpp) and line 8(main.cpp) i'll later mark the line for easier visualization

    here's my code:

    As always when a crash happens - use a debugger to see where and why it crashes.

  • Lifetime Qt Champion

    @NoobDude12343 said in qt sigfpe arithmetic exception:

    ui->opencvFrame->setPixmap(mOpenCV_videoCapture->pixmap().scaled(500, 500));

    And this creates a race condition since two threads may access this data. Send the image/pixmap via signals/slots instead.

  • thanks for replying @Christian-Ehrlicher , now i face another error, which is "lnk1107 invalid or corrupt file cannot read 0x458"
    i google this and couldn't found anything, not the 0x458 particularly, any insight?

  • Lifetime Qt Champion

    @NoobDude12343 said in qt sigfpe arithmetic exception:

    corrupt file

    What file exactly is that? Please post whole error message.

  • @jsulm ah, it's myvideocapture.cpp, main and mainwindow.cpp (according to the debugger). but now i face yet another challenge, which has been mention above, any idea?

  • Lifetime Qt Champion

    @NoobDude12343 Do you mean the issue @Christian-Ehrlicher replied to?

  • @NoobDude12343 said in qt sigfpe arithmetic exception:

    lnk1107 invalid or corrupt file

    It's a linker issue. It looks like you're messing up with some library, not using the proper one (maybe some wrong file from OpenCV?). See for instance this SO question.

  • @jsulm yeah
