KDE crash signal


I receive the following often;
Konqueror crashed signal 11 (SIGSEGV)

Is there a problem with MDK 9.1 and KDE,
or have I done something wrong??

Thanks in advance,

Hi Digger

I don't think there is a specific general problem with Mandrake 9.1 running KDE regards this error - its happened to me the odd occasion - I'm not doing anything of any importance so I tend to just ignore it.

Are you doing anything specific when it occurs?

I don't get it with Konqueror, but I can make it occur on demand while browsing the man pages in KDE Help Center. In this case, it is quite benign - it only happens when exiting the Help Center. No, you're not doing anything wrong, and it isn't a widespread problem for Mandrake 9.1/KDE.

BTW, you're experiencing one of the benefits of Linux when this happens: the application crashes, but doesn't take the OS with it. That's a rarity with Windows.

I just resolved the Konqueror/SIGSEGV error on my computer. It would pop up a KDE Crash dialog box every time I clicked my Home directory (to view files) or clicked the Konqueror icon (to browse web).

Seems like it just started happening right after I was mucking with some Konqueror configurations and settings. I researched KDE & Konqueror bugs - nothing turned up to fix the problem.

Go to Configure Desktop > Web Browsing. Click on each of the Web Browsing sub-menus & restore the default values of everything. Close out & open up Konqueror again.

This seemed to work for me and I hope it helps. I'm still researching as to what configuraiton caused it.

I'm not sure, but the crashes seem to be heat related on my video card.
I installed another case cooling fan (slot fan). I put it right under the video card. And it seems to be doing better now.

signal 11

I keep getting that damn signal 11 error every time i boot in to KDE.
and then it comes up when i go in to home and open and proggys.

Iv'e recently installed ther new nvidia 6106 drivers.
I'm using mandrake 10 by the way.
Someone mentiond heat off the graphics carfd, I install 2 extractor fans(on ebay for 2 each) put one next too my graphics card and one just above the last pci slot in me case.

That was when i had windows, never stopped crashing. I have a Nvidia FX5200 128mb graphics card, the heat these fans push out is amsing, they blow lots and lots of heat out.

The errors have only started after i installed the drivers for the graphics card.

If somone could mybe post a link up for a fix or a patch maybe, or a way to stop mandrake error reporting.

Anything.....this is annoying the c**p out of me now.

The heat would explain why i'm sweating like a pig and why i smell of B.O.

Thanks in advance to whoever replies!!!

I have the EXACT same problem.

-Mandrake 10 OE
-Tried to upgrade my nVidia GFX 5600 driver to the latest version
-Now I have no 3d acceleration (no games) and keep getting that crazy error

By the way, what kernel are you using? I first tried it under the latest mandrake kernel (2.6.3-15mdk?) then again under 2.6.3-13mdk (my main one). No go... let's keep this thread up to date if we find a fix!

Sig11 errors

If you are using Mandrake 10, w/Nvidia card you will have to configure your "XF86Config-4" file with kwrite as root

The following two sections should look something like this.

Section "Module"
Load "dbe" # Double-Buffering Extension
Load "v4l" # Video for Linux
Load "extmod"
Load "type1"
Load "freetype"
Load "glx" # 3D layer

Section "Device"
Identifier "device1"
VendorName "nVidia Corporation"
BoardName "NVIDIA GeGorce2 DDR (generic)"
Driver "nvidia"
Option "DPMS"
Option "IgnoreEDID" "1"
Option "NvAGP" "3"
