Hi ~suv and JazzyNico,

Were you able to get Inkscape to run properly?

The the C/C++ libraries on my computer have been built with GCC.

Is code that is compiled with clang/clang++, but linking to libraries compiled with GCC expected to work.

I'm not able to get Inkscape build with clang to run on ArchLinux. What could be the possible reason for this?

Stepping with gdb led me to discover that a memset() call executes indefinitely in the function XmlSource::setFile() in the file repr-io.cpp when an (internal) SVG is read at startup.
