FreeCAD 0.16 and 0.17 crash

Postby Taufeeq2 » Thu Mar 14, 2019 7:36 pm

NB: This is happening on linux
*********Operating System Charateristics.
Distributor ID: LinuxMint
Description: Linux Mint 18.3 Sylvia
Release: 18.3
Codename: sylvia
REPORT

This is the error that pops up when i click the part design module.
-------
Program received signal SIGSEGV, Segmentation fault.
Segmentation fault.
----------------
I have tried to check the console in the software by running import Part, the following is the response.
---------------------------------------------------
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "<input>", line 1, in <module>
ImportError: /usr/lib/freecad/lib/Part.so: undefined symbol: _ZN9BRep_Tool14CurveOnSurfaceERK11TopoDS_EdgeRK11TopoDS_FaceRdS6_Pb
-----------------------------------------------
Attached to this is a FreeCAD log.
Conclusion
At this point, i am unsure what the likely cause of this error is, i am investing a possible dependency breaking by opencascade.

0.16 is very old, 0.17 is old. Please retry with a current 0.18 or wait a few days, it will be released as stable soon.

Do you mean there is no user.cfg in $HOME/.FreeCAD or you can't find the hidden .FreeCAd directory?

There is a Macro "findConfigFiles", installable via Addon manager, which might help you.
