Insync crashes on Debian buster



Insync crashes on my debian buster/sid machine. I installed it with:

apt install ./insync_1.4.9.37127-stretch_amd64.deb

and when doing insync start I can see the following segfault message in /var/log/messages:

segfault at 11e0 ip 00000000000011e0 sp 00007ffdffac2868 error 14 in insync[56144e29b000+31a000]

What can I do?

Hi @riccardomc,

Sorry for the inconvenience! Could you run insync start --no-daemon and send us the output?


Hi, I have a similar issue. On my current buster installation (everything is up-to-date) Insync wont start. The output of the given command reports this:

Warning: Ignoring XDG_SESSION_TYPE=wayland on Gnome. Use QT_QPA_PLATFORM=wayland to run on Wayland anyway.

Hi @loki

Can you run ‘sudo ldconfig -p | grep -i’ and send me the output?
