Bitsquare don't opens (Ubuntu 16.04)

There’s been no updates to linux on that cocputer. I had a trade going on buying another coin with btc.

  1. How can I know the trade completed?
  2. How can I find the wallet for the alt coin I was trading into?
  3. Can I reinstall bitsquare without risking my data and that trade?
  4. Also I don’t have another computer.

thanks for your help on this.

At a shell prompt, type uname -a. Look at the version number shown. If it says 4.10.0-24 then it’s the broken kernel. Reboot and run the older kernel, 4.10.0-22 and Bitsquare will run fine.

To get to the older kernel, you usually need to hold down right-shift on start-up and then select the kernel you need to run.

Do u know why the kernel is broken and if they are working on fixes (assume so)?

My kernal looks to be slightly older. uname -a gives me:
4.8.0-56-generic #61~16.04.1-Ubuntu SMP Wed Jun 14 11:58:22 UTC 2017 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

If I reinstall Bitsquare, wil my data be ok?
Also, how can I see the wallet for the currency I was trading into?

This is weird. This seems like some other kernel then what you get wtih “uname -a”.
This other kernel is newer and fits the time line. Also this kernel has also experienced segmentation fault even running programs like gnome-shell https://bugs.centos.org/print_bug_page.php?bug_id=12368

Ah thanks! So it is a kernel issue and users should revert the kernel and wait for the next fix for that.

I upgraded my kernel to 4.11.6-041106-generic and now things are working. Still strange to me becuase my kernel has not been updated since installing Bitsquare. At any rate, things are working. I have another issue now about a trade, I’ll open another ticket for that. Thanks Cliff and Manfred for your help!

On my PC the bug occurred with the kernel 4.4.0-81, I started it with 4.4.0-79 and bitsquaro went back to working without problems.

Hi. Just to confirm here, i am having the same issue.

@Anquiza You are right my friend! I was on 4.4.0-79 - flawless no problems, till i decided to boot into newer 4.4.0-81 kernel, bisq refused to open. I also did not see any logs anywhere (but i never tried opening bisq from terminal so i dont know). So i booted back to 4.4.0-79.

BUT this is not a solution to the problem! Has anyone reported this to the Ubuntu team??

There are many other apps with the same problem and I am sure Ubuntu is working on a fix. In the upcoming release (today) there is also the VM arg added which might help to get it working with the flawed Kernel.

It isn’t just Ubuntu I think. To my understanding it was a problematic kernel fix for a local privilege escalation vulnerability (Stack Clash) that affected many Unix-like systems including OpenBSD and it’s variants.

Hello I add my post to this thread because my issue is rather similar and I don’t know it’s worthy to open a new conversation…

I’m trying to install on Linux Ubuntu 16.04 (build 4.4.0-87-generic) and, using the Debian package, I’m encountering the ‘segmentation error’ described above.

I tried to compile from sources, however I find really hard to follow the procedure in https://github.com/bitsquare/bitsquare/blob/master/doc/build.md (where is point 2? when did I downloaded the files to build bisq with mvn?)

Then, I tried using the script install_on_unix.sh, from the /doc directory. Everthing whent well untill building bisq in the directory bitsquare, PLZ see below:

I tried to include libdohj in the script (how could I share an attachment here?) however nothing changed. How could I solve the segmentation problem or find a step-to-step guid to build from sources?

Thank you very much!

This problem was resolved by simply updating your Ubuntu version. Just go to console and type “sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get dist-upgrade” and then reboot. It should prompt you to install a new Linux kernel for your Ubuntu installation that doesn’t have this problem.

Thank you for your answer. Core 4.4.0-87 seems to be the the latest version for Ubuntu 16.04, so sudo apt-get dist-upgrade doesn’t seem to change nothing. I will try to shift to 16.04.2 (I’d rather prefer to keep a LST version than to install 17.04). I lett you know when done, thanX!

I prefer LTS versions as well and would recommend you continue using it. To my knowledge the newest version is 4.10.0-28 , did you get your version using “uname -r”? Run “uname -a” as well, just in case.

Found out: Ubuntu 16.04.2 could stick on 4.4 core if you installed it starting from the previous LTS. You have to explicitly enable the update to the new kernel with:

sudo apt-get install --install-recommends xserver-xorg-hwe-16.04

(solution from: https://askubuntu.com/questions/885054/upgrade-16-04-2-lts-to-kernel-version-4-8)

I’m upgrading and I will try ASAP if this fix the issue (I suppose yes). ThanX

I’m here: Linux 4.10.0-28-generic #32~16.04.2-Ubuntu SMP Thu Jul 20 10:19:13 UTC 2017 i686 i686 i686 GNU/Linux

I re-install the Debian package and Bisq-32bit-0.5.3.deb and running /opt/Bisq/Bisq I’m still getting the Segmentation error (using the icon on the menu nothing happens…)

Any idea? Thank you very much!

Weird. I don’t know why that is happening. The new kernel fixed this problem, I assume they fixed it for 32 bit as well, I don’t know, maybe they didn’t.

I think I will re-open the issue in a new post…
