Terminal output: rviz Segmentation fault (core dumped)

As soon as I add a laserscan in rviz. No matter what settings I chose, as soon as I enter the topic: /amigo/base_front_laser then rviz seg faults.

In fuerte, it still works properly. How can I fix this?

Which ROS version? Which Rviz version (you can check by $rosrun rviz rviz)?

This is common bug with Rviz 1.9.34 in Groovy for non-Nvidia video cards. If you do a sudo apt-get update does it update to Rviz 1.9.35 for you? I would recommend that, switching to Hydro, or compiling one of the other versions of Rviz from source (maybe 1.9.33 or 1.9.35).
