Aborted-Core Dumped (Ubuntu 7.10)


Hi guys. I'm having trouble with the "aborted-core dumped" message. Specifically, I've been trying to run xmoto and azureus and I get this message, resulting in failure to launch the program. Now, if the program was actually running and I had to kill it, then I'd know what to do, more or less, but the thing is that there's actually nothing running.

What do I have to do to rerun these applications?

"core" is a file containing a raw binary dump of memory that is possible to debug with the appropriate tools and knowledge!

This could one of many issues and without knowing your hardware and software install config, its incredibly difficult to even guess.

What distro are you using and how did you install the apps?

I'm using Ubuntu 7.10, as demonstrated by both the thread title and "Distribution" profile option. I installed both by the Synaptics Packet manager. I ran both, but after a while I altered the resolution for xmoto to 1280 (which is my proper sreen resolution) and wasn't able to run the app even after compltetely removing it and re-installing. I get this message when running the game in the terminal. Same with Azureus. I ran the application to see whether any special configuration was needed, but when I tried to download a torrent, the app shut down and when I run through terminal I get the aborted-core dumped message.

xmoto is known to be buggy, particularly the current version.

Edit the /etc/X11/xorg.conf file and find any line with the text "1280x" in (usually starts "Mode"). Each line you find, insert a "#" at the very beginning. Save+Exit.

Restart X server (CTRL-ATL-Backspace) or reboot.

What happens now?

Before I do this (because, due to earlier unsuccesful meddlings of mine with xorg.conf I am kind of weary to proceed) I believe I should copy the full terminal output:

For Azureus (which I completely removed and installed by the packet manager):

Code:
An unexpected error has been detected by Java Runtime Environment:
#
#  SIGSEGV (0xb) at pc=0xb461074b, pid=6173, tid=3085089680
#
# Java VM: Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM (1.6.0_03-b05 mixed mode, sharing)
# Problematic frame:
# C  [libglibjni-0.4.so+0xb74b]
#
# An error report file with more information is saved as hs_err_pid6173.log
I think this means that for some reason the SIGSEGV signal is being sent to the process.

For Xmoto (same procedure, many times):

Code:
Segmentation fault (core dumped)
As a novice programmer, I recognise this is a memory issue.

I should also mention that I achieved to run both programs once before experiencing those issues. Xmoto stopped running after I changed its resolution to 1280 (which is also my screen resolution) and restarted it and Azureus stopped when... I wanted to download a torrent.

Anything new?
