Thread: Segmentation fault on zypper and other system tools

    Default Segmentation fault on zypper and other system tools

    Hi everyone,

    I'm fairly new to OpenSUSE Tumbleweed but a seasoned Linux user.

    Without (knowingly) updating any software but after a hard reset/poweroff (related to a black screen after standby/sleep) my installation now seems to be in a bad state.

    Multiple zypper commands will result in Segmentation faults, including install/info/update. zypper refresh runs without problems, but that at the time of writing everything is up-to-date. The situation may be different if any repos actually needed updating.

    I've tried to run rpm --rebuilddb but that didn't help.

    While I contemplated reinstalling rpms related to zypper manually I found out that the find utility also exits with a segmentation fault in some cases:

    Code:
    $ sudo find / -name 'libzypp-17.14.0-1.1.x86_64*'
    Segmentation fault
    I'm unsure how to get my system out of this state. I tried to debug using gdb but I'm missing a lot of debug information related to the different libraries and I cannot (or do not know how to) install the relevant debug information without a functioning zypper.

    Below is a list of my repositories:

    Code:
    $ zypper lr -d

    Oh well.

    I had tried to restart the computer already but now after a complete shutdown / power off everything now seems to work as it should.

    Guess we'll never know

    Yes, strange.

    I was thinking of something hardware. I hope it will not return in the future.
