Install Qt5 on Virtualbox, segmentation fault

  • I have virtualbox(5.2.2) created from ubuntu-16.04.3-desktop-amd64.iso, on Windows host. I downloaded qt-opensource-linux-x64-5.9.3.run, when I run it, get:

    # ./qt-opensource-linux-x64-5.6.3.run
     Segmentation fault (core dumped)

    I tried many times, same. I also tried to run qt-opensource-linux-x64-5.6.3.run, same.

    I have the same virtualbox in another Windows host, same Ubuntu version and Qt version, everything is fine.

    Can anyone give me some clues? Thanks!

  • Hi @Tegan,

    Not sure what the best approach is, but I'd:

    1. check the installer's md5sum against https://download.qt.io/archive/qt/5.6/5.6.3/md5sums.txt
    2. compare the output of ldd qt-opensource-linux-x64-5.6.3.run on both hosts, then
    3. run the installer with gdb
