Hello

I'm new to ROS and I installed Fuerte on Ubuntu 12.04 (Precise Pangolin) 64bit. The normal examples work well, but gazebo crashes with an illegal instruction error. I get the error with an AMD Phenom II CPU and with an Intel Core 2 CPU as well.

Do you have any ideas?

Thanks Matthias

are you running 1.6.10? (check /opt/ros/fuerte/stacks/simulator_gazebo/CMakeLists.txt).

hsu gravatar imagehsu ( 2012-06-06 09:38:29 -0500 )edit

for me the same problem appeared after the last gazebo update.(package version 1.6.14-s1346200794~precise). Gazebo worked (kind of) in the previous version. I guess there's nothing I can do except waiting for the next update and hoping it works again in the next version.

Update

Thanks again konradb3, simulator_gazebo 1.6.15 with SSE4 disabled on the way. Please check fuerte debbuild for updates.


A regression in system path loading might be a possibility, but that should be fixed in 1.6.14.

Running them separately (rosrun gazebo gui) crashes for me as well (Gazebo 1.6.14 from deb) Dmesg has errors relating to libQtGui.so in the gzclient

Since upgrading to 1.6.14 gazebo crashes for me as well (http://pastebin.com/pGihq74c)

Ugo gravatar imageUgo ( 2012-09-03 02:04:01 -0500 )edit

The reason of crash (at least for me) is that gazebo is compiled using SSE4.1 instructions which are not supported on my cpu.

konradb3 gravatar imagekonradb3 ( 2012-09-03 08:26:37 -0500 )edit

I got a similar issue when spawning PR2 in Gazebo (1.6.16) that wasn't present one week ago. I didn't use ROS last week but I did two updates yesterday and monday 6th that may be related. Is this SSE issue fixed ? I'm using fuerte on ubuntu 10.04.

With a system update last week (including ROS) everything worked. But now it isn't working anymore.

There was another update of ROS a few days ago. I couldn't check directly afterwards, but now it isn't working again unfortunately. I have no real idea what's going on. Maybe a jump to an invalid function pointer?

dmesg has some more information: gzserver[12573] trap invalid opcode ip:7f5b81bf8c01 sp:7f5b441f6ca0 error:0 in libgazebo_common.so.1.0.1[7f5b81ba2000+67000]

gdb says:

The integrated gazebo version crashes too when I start it without ROS. I built gazebo from original sources this weekend and it doesn't crash. Unfortunately the ROS build from the sources still doesn't work out of the box for gazebo.

Hi Matthias, thanks for the update. How are you launching gazebo? Does it crash every time? On second thought, if you did "rosrun gazebo gazebo" and "rosrun gazebo gui" separately, with some pause in between, does the error still occur?

I have the same problem: my CPU (CPU0: AMD Sempron(tm) Processor 3100+) doesn't support SSE. Having install ROS from the ROS-site, as recommended, how do I replace my installed version by the SSE-disabled version ?

I have the same Problem. All my stacks are up-to-date (installed Ubuntu 12.04 64bit and ROS Fuerte just yesterday and checked for updates) but the problem remains. Can someone confirm the problem even after successful update? My version of Gazebo is 1.6.10.

I have the same problem with simulator_gazebo 1.6.12. As suggested, downloading and compiling gazebo on my PC makes it work, but indeed it is not the best solution.

@hcostelha were you able to get a backtrace? if so, can you compare it with the one posted by Matthias? thanks.

hsu gravatar imagehsu ( 2012-08-10 06:22:39 -0500 )edit

Yes, my backtrace is pretty much the same as Matthias one. I tested with the gazebo_worlds/worlds/empty.world

hcostelha gravatar imagehcostelha ( 2012-08-10 13:18:38 -0500 )edit

what was the command that you executed? "roslaunch gazebo_worlds empty_world.launch"?

hsu gravatar imagehsu ( 2012-08-10 13:41:47 -0500 )edit

I don't now how to "gdb directly" that command. I did "gdb /opt/ros/fuerte/stacks/simulator_gazebo/gazebo/gazebo/bin/gzserver" and then

hcostelha gravatar imagehcostelha ( 2012-08-11 20:30:40 -0500 )edit

run /opt/ros/fuerte/stacks/simulator_gazebo/gazebo_worlds/worlds/empty.world __name:=gazebo -s rospack find gazebo/lib/libgazebo_ros_paths_plugin.so -s rospack find gazebo/lib/libgazebo_ros_api_plugin.so

do an upgrade, (sudo apt-get upgrade). there's some major gazebo upgrade in the pipeline I think. works after that.

thanks !! I did the upgrade, it works now.
