Can't run virt-manager (Qemu) Segmentation fault

Hi!

A few days ago, I upgraded to UbuntuMate 19.04.

I can't run 'virt-manager' because of this:

virt-manager

Output: Segmentation fault

kernel: [ 2003.888116] virt-manager[16014]: segfault at 32d0 ip 00000000000032d0 sp 00007ffeb09ac658 error 14 in python3.7[400000+21000]

kernel: [ 2003.888124] Code: Bad RIP value.

PYTHONDEVMODE=1 virt-manager --no-fork

Fatal Python error: Segmentation fault

Segmentation fault

So I made a test and removed the file: "/usr/lib/python3/dist-packages/apport_python_hook.py"

...so the output of

PYTHONDEVMODE=1 virt-manager --no-fork

is now:

Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/usr/lib/python3/dist-packages/libvirt.py", line 24, in
import cygvirtmod as libvirtmod
ModuleNotFoundError: No module named 'cygvirtmod'

During handling of the above exception, another exception occurred:

Can someone help me to fix that?

I started a thread here, too...

Dear @mate2go it seems to be another problem with your libraries from /usr/local/lib.
I can't reproduce your problem on clean install of Ubuntu MATE 19.04.

Please show the output of the following three commands:

ls -al /usr/local/lib
locate libnettle.so.6
ldd /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libhogweed.so.4

Also you should not manually remove files which are controlled by APT. This may end with big mess. You have to reinstall removed file with

sudo apt-get install --reinstall python3-apport

@ Norbert_X...

ls -al /usr/local/lib

Output:

What to do?

I'll suggest to remove these libraries with:

sudo rm /usr/local/lib/libnettle.so.6 /usr/local/lib/libnettle.so.6.4

And try to start virt-manager again.

Could you please clarify why you have too many libraries in /usr/local/lib? What is the goal?
Why you do not want to install applications from repository with Synaptic / APT / Software Boutique?
Compilation and installation from source code archives creates a mess in the system. If you really want to do so - then use CheckInstall.

Please consult my post on AskUbuntu about software installation -

to make sure that you really understand how software installation works :slight_smile:

Now, it's working :slight_smile: Many thanks @ Norbert_X...

...because, in the past I compiled OpenSSL and some libs.
