Stellarium Won't Function
Hello. More Stellarium issues. System specs: Trisquel 5.5/Pentium 4 3.2GHz/2GB RAM/Intel 82865G Integrated Graphics/Direct Rendering-Yes. Here's the output from glxinfo- http://dpaste.com/761906/
My issue is this: Stellarium starts, then immediately quits. It won't stay running. Is there a fix for this?
Thanks for your time!
If you launch Stellarium from a virtual terminal (in the "Accessories" menu) and it quits, is there any error message that could be written in the terminal and help us understand the issue?
"Segmentation fault" -> That is not nice at all.
This happens when the program attempts to access forbidden memory addresses (like address 0 or addresses that do not exist). It is a bug. It looks like it has already been reported and confirmed by Ubuntu users... but nobody apparently works on it. Trisquel is based on Ubuntu but has not the manpower to fix bugs that are not Trisquel specific.
If I were you, I would try to install Stellarium 11.2 from this PPA and see if it better works.
If it crashes too, you can try to install Quantal's Stellarium 11.3. It is not guaranteed to install at all (it may rely on newer versions of some libraries).
Thanks. I shall give that a try post haste!
Alas, no joy. Later!
The PPA segfaults too?
I'm afraid so.
