Segfault on Latest Insync (Debian Stretch)


#1

Hello,

I’m a Insync Plus user, and I’m having issues with the Linux client since the latest update on Debian Stretch (I’m currently running Debian 9.0 RC3 amd64).

Since the latest update, the tray icon closed and when I try to run Insync it closes immediately. It ran fine till then.

This is the output of a command-line startup attempt:

#2

I’m getting the same on OpenSUSE Tumbleweed with the latest insync.
Identical stacktrace.


#3

tagging our engineer @lpugoy


#4

I forgot to add: just to clarify, the problems started after an OS update, not the Insync app update - have been using insync/1.3.15.36150-jessie for a while now.


#5

Same here. I’m using Debian Stretch and the same issue occurred in two different computers with the same system (office and home office). But, in my case, it happened after an OS update where Insync were among the updated packages.

Here is the list of updated packages:

#6

I have the same problem. However, latest Ubuntu version of the client works fine on Stretch.


#7

I avoided this problem by removing the Insync package and reinstalling it using the 64-bit deb installer, which comes with “1.3.15.36150-wheezy” version. However, I don’t like to use installers… Then I tried to reinstall the repository version, just for a test, and again I’ve had the problematic version installed: “1.3.15.36150-jessie”, with the same error. So, it seems something in jessie version, present on jessie and stretch repositories, it’s not OK and it’s causing this crash. Thus, I changed my Insync repository to wheezy (instead of stretch), assuming it contained the same version that came with the installer, installed (yes, is the same version) and now everything is working.


#8

@SabrinaTigik: Thanks for the info. If possible please try the test build for Debian Stretch available here: New Insync version: 1.3.15.


#9

@groksteve: Which Insync package did you install? If possible please try the build for Fedora 25 as well.


#10

@lpugoy, thanks for the suggestion! I’ve just installed your recommended version in my office computer and, by now, it’s working fine. Do you have any idea when this version will be available on stretch repository?


#11

Latest build runs fine on Stretch amd64. Thanks for the quick response!!


#12

@SabrinaTigik @Alejandro_Caceres: Thanks for the feedback. The repo will be updated once we have confirmed that it solves the issue for users.


#13

@lpugoy Tried with 1.3.15.36150-fc21 initially which led to the original issue. No problems however with the fc25 RPM.


#14

I am having the same problem. I’m not sure when it started. Insync segfaults when I start it. I tried renaming ~/.config/Insync and starting from scratch and insync works as expected until I log into an account at which point it crashes. If I copy the Insync/dbs folder to a fresh install insync crashes.

@Will_Everett: Apologies for not replying sooner. Your output shows that you are using the build for Debian Jessie. Please try the build for Debian Stretch instead. You can get it from www.insynchq.com/downloads in the Installers section or through this direct link here: https://d2t3ff60b2tol4.cloudfront.net/builds/insync_1.3.18.36169-stretch_amd64.deb.

Hello all!

I went to write here because I had the same issue. After update my Debian stable yesterday morning Insync stopped working. From then I’ve looked for a solution in this forum and I’ve made a lot of tests in order to solve the problem. To sum up: I wrote a message in a wrong thread in this forum. Luckily and thanks to @gio that I was redirected here again.

I update my systems by apt-get or aptitude. For a unknow reason, my system had installed 1.3.17.36167-jessie version, with the issue of this thread.

Thanks to @lpugoy, downloading the right package for strecht and installing it by dpkg solves the problem. Now Insync works like a charm.

Thank you very much for your support!

By the way: I do not know why, the line in insync.list still pointing to jessie version, even the insync version installed is 1.3.18.36169 for strecht.
