Instability / Random Crashes
« on: July 19, 2019, 10:21:22 pm »
Switching layout to "GDB/CDB debugger:Default"
(codeblocks:31683): Gtk-CRITICAL **: 09:37:56.615: IA__gtk_widget_set_size_request: assertion 'width >= -1' failed
[1]+  Segmentation fault      (core dumped) codeblocks


I just started using CB on a new Ubuntu install.  In 2 days it's crashed about 6-8 times.

I haven't figured out yet if there is a pattern or a way of reproducing it.  This error has come up more than once but it has had different issues.

Is there something I can do to help find the issue?  How can I open/view the core dumps?

You can start with two things:
1. Read https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Backtrace
2. Tell us what version are you using?

16.01 rev10692

Ubuntu 18.04.2 LTS

I opened the a core dump but I don't think I will get very far without the debug info.  Where to go from here?

(gdb) thread apply all backtrace

Install the debug info package. It should be provided in both distro packages and the packages we ship.

BTW 16.01 is know to crash a lot on ubuntu, so you're better of switching to something newer like 17.12.
