    Default FileZilla failed to issue SSH connect after the latest update of Tumbleweed

    Hello everyone,

    I am using Tumbleweed with the latest snapshot 20160503. After this update yesterday morning, I cannot use FileZilla on my system.

    The problem is FileZilla starts up normally at first but crashed after I tried to connect to my VPS using SFTP protocol. And it refuses to start up again after this crash.

    But if I delete the configuration folder from ~/.config/filezilla, It starts. And the same nightmare comes again.

    I cannot figure out more on this. Could anyone give me some clues?

    TIA.

    Best regards,

    Hi everyone,

    For the above problem, I found following log from YaST2 -> Journal entries. There are 3 lines every time FileZilla quits unexpectedly.

    Code:
    May 04 18:12:06  filezilla[2619]                  ANOM_ABEND auid=1000 uid=1000 gid=100 ses=2 pid=2619 comm="filezilla" exe="/usr/bin/filezilla" sig=7
    
    May 04 18:12:06  kernel                             traps: filezilla[2619] trap stack segment ip:7f43473eedd2 sp:7ffe7600bbe0 error:0 in libwx_gtk2u_core-suse.so.1[7f4346f35000+583000]
    
    May 04 18:12:06  systemd-coredum[2632]  Process 2619 (filezilla) of user 1000 dumped core.
    I wish this could be helpful.

    Thanks in advance.

    Many thanks for your help.


    My knowledge cannot tell whether this is the problem or not. And I do not know how to use the debug tools. I can use SSH to connect to my VPS. The problem only happens when I use FileZilla to connect using SFTP.

    I tried the suggested solution of fallbacking OpenSSH to 6.6p1-11.1 (hopefully I got this right), but it seems no effect.

    Hello everyone,

    This problem still exists.

    But I found a workaround to get a usable FileZilla in the system. Details are as follows.

    I tried to downgrade the package of FileZilla from repositories, but it was not easy. So I download the install package of FileZilla v3.14.1 for Linux from sourceforge, uncompress the tar ball, and use the 3 files in the bin subdirectory to replace the ones in the /usr/bin directory. Now the FileZilla in my system works in a lower version state.

    And I found that v3.16.1 and v3.16.0 were also not working in my current openSUSE Tumbleweed installation (snapshot 20160505).

    Thanks for your concerns.
