I have rviz crash

[rviz-5] process has died [pid 26833, exit code -11, cmd /opt/ros/groovy/lib/rviz/rviz -d /home/user/catkin_ws/src/semantic_navigation/rviz_config_test.rviz __name:=rviz __log:=/home/user/.ros/log/b2dfc712-8a10-11e3-b737-3c970e43a294/rviz-5.log].

when I try to add GridCells: topic: move_base_node/local_costmap/anything from here eg. obstacles

my parameters:

publish_voxel_map: true
global_frame: /odom
robot_base_frame: /base_link
update_frequency: 5.0
publish_frequency: 5.0
static_map: false
rolling_window: true
width: 15.0
height: 15.0
resolution: 0.05
origin_x: 0.0
origin_y: 0.0

edit 1: LaserScan also crashes rviz

edit 2: I run rviz with optirun and the error does not occure when adding LaserScan, but error from local_costmap remains.

Same problem started to happen to me this week. While visualizing the navigation in Rviz, it crashes and sometimes (not always) says "malloc(): memory corruption". More Info: ubuntu 12.04, ros groovy, rviz version 1.9.34 , OGRE version 1.7.4, OpenGl version: 4.2. Nvidia driver 304.116 (Quadro 600)

I'm getting new segfaults from trying to display LaserScan messages in Rviz too. Was working well last week. rviz version 1.9.34. OGRE version 1.7.4 (Cthugha). OpenGl version: 3 (GLSL 1.3). Intel Hashwell Video driver. Works well in Hydro still! Just not Groovy.

Today I made another test. Instead of using the rviz binary installed with groovy distro, I downloaded the source code of rviz groovy-devel branch from github, built it and, after running, same problem happens: Segmentation fault (core dumped).

I'm also getting errors while trying to display LaserScan

I also have the same problem on my new PC with Intel i7 Haswell. Rviz crashes after showing the laserscan message. PS: I have the same configuration of Angus (RVIZ 1.9.34. OGRE 1.7.4 OpenGl 3 (GLSL 1.3). Intel Hashwell Video driver.

i've updated question and added how i got rviz to work with LaserScan

BP gravatar image BP  ( 2014-02-05 05:54:55 -0500 )edit

I downloaded previous rviz versions in order to figure out which is the last version that works. With rviz 1.9.32 I have no problems at all. After this version, both 1.9.33 and 1.9.34 crash.

@Gargamel, oh, ok, thanks. Waiting for the fixed version to appear in repository :}

there is (not in ubuntu's propably, but on github). You can download old working (1.9.32) or new working (1.9.35) version (If you're groovy user) and build it from source ( I had problems with old YAML libraries linking but building new rviz in debug worked for me-dunno why)
