Linux: Segmentation Fault (Core Dumped)

Has anyone ever gotten an error with using either the Cargo Install or Conda Install versions of Tectonic that reads:


I noticed this fault both on a cargo install (ubuntu/mint), and on arch linux (conda).

Hi @Hamilton_White, thanks for reporting! Congratulations, in a sense — released versions of Tectonic should be very hard to make segfault (Rust is great for this). A couple of questions:

  • Are you able to share the file that you’re compiling here?
  • Are you able to actually retrieved the coredump file and potentially open it in a debugger?
