Segmentation fault during QApplication.exec()



  • Hey,

    I've got a segmentation during the QApplication.exec() call, the seg fault doesn't occurs every time i launch the program bur more ling 6 times on 10. Do you know what could cause it ?

    Here is a backtrace from GDB:
    Thread 1 "client" received signal SIGSEGV, Segmentation fault.

    Hi, welcome to the forum.

    signal SIGSEGV, Segmentation fault.

    ClientLauncher.cpp:37

    Somewhere in line 37 bad things happen. Maybe you want to show us some code? :)



  • I can't post all the source code but line 37 is simply : return application.exec();



  • application is a QApplication ;)

    Without code, no-one but you can find out.

    I don't know what's causing the crash, but these lines look interesting. Are you pressing any keys during application startup? Does it still crash if you refrain from pressing any keys?



  • Yep, there is no seg fault if i don't press any key

    So back in Qt 5.4, does it crash if you press keys at startup?



  • @JKSH Dunno, i have to use Qt 5.7 :/

    Sorry, I got mixed up between your issue and someone else (they got crashes after upgrading from Qt 5.4).

    Anyway,

    1. Is it a particular key that causes the crash? Or does it crash no matter what key you're pressing at startup?
    2. At startup, if you wait for 5 seconds before you press the key(s), does it still crash?

    Hi,

    Even if you have to use 5.7, it's a good idea to test against an older version to help determine whether that behaviour is new to 5.7.
