smuxi-server crashes immediately with SEGV on startup

Bug #306164 reported by Nathaniel Smith on 2008-12-08
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
mono (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

Binary package hint: smuxi

My complete interaction with smuxi-server (0.6.2-1, installed from Intrepid repositories, system is up-to-date Intrepid):

  roberts:~$ smuxi-server
  zsh: segmentation fault smuxi-server
  roberts:~$ smuxi-server --help
  zsh: segmentation fault smuxi-server --help
  roberts:~$ smuxi-server --version

What I expected: something useful to happen, or at least some docs describing how to make it actually work...

Thanks for your reply.

Your Mono install looks ok then...

Could you try a different shell and/or terminal emulator (if you use
one), like bash on xterm.... as I have seen odd things happening with
Mono inside xemacs shell for example.

Another wild guess would be to start smuxi-server under gdb... does any
other Mono application work for you? You can try "gacutil -l" for
example, that's a very basic application present on all Mono installs.

roberts:~$ gacutil -l
zsh: segmentation fault gacutil -l

(and the same when using bash, of course.)

So I guess it's Not Your Bug -- please reassign as appropriate...

Re-assinging to mono-jit as this SEGV is a problem with runtime, as proven with the gacutil test.
