2.2.2 crash on Centos-7/linux

Just downloaded the 2.2.2 source tarball for linux, extracted it, installed several dependencies (including the sclo that provides gcc 4.9.x) and built it. there were a few warnings during the build but I didn’t see any outright errors.

the build culminates in a large file named “audacity”, so I assume the build thought it had no fatal errors.

so, when I type “./audacity” I get a string of errors/notations followed by a segfault, all before the GUI shows up:

./audacity

Segmentation fault (core dumped)

the system comes with Audacity 2.1.1, which is still installed, and there is ~/.audacity-data, containing a number of files/directories, including audacity.cfg.

Is there some incompatibility with stuff in that directory, such that I need to, e.g. remove or rename the directory?

thanks in advance for your help!

Fred

here’s the stack trace at the time of the segfault:

Ah, I’ve fixed it myself.

I had installed wxWidgets from the Centos repo (and it is now called wxGTK3…) and that one linked but didn’t work for audacity.

After some bit of messing around, I finally uninstalled that one entirely, downloaded source from git (per one or another of the audacity documents) built, installed, then re-configured audacity and voila, it now runs.

Hope someone else finds my travails to be helpful.

Thanks for posting the solution.
We’re aware that some repo versions of wxWidgets are not built correctly for Audacity, but we don’t have the manpower to write detailed instructions for all of the major distributions (or even to test on more than a few distributions). We welcome detailed build instructions from users that successfully build Audacity (particularly for distros other than 'buntu / Debian)

The problem with wxGTK3 in EPEL is that it was built with GCC 4.8.x which, in the case of C++11, is not ABI compatible with software built with GCC 5+.

C++ that doesn’t use C++11 standard seems to work across GCC versions, but not C++11.

The thread is rather old but one thing that stands out is the error related to ALSA, which might suggest a problem with the audio configuration. Have you tried running Audacity with different audio settings? You could also try re-installing ALSA or checking that the configuration files are set up correctly. Another thing to try is to run the program with elevated privileges by using the sudo command. If you’re not already doing so, you might need to run the program as an administrator in order to avoid permission issues. I also suggest checking out Extended Lifecycle Support for CentOS 7 | TuxCare for some related tips and more info. I think they might have the info you need.
