I am using ROS kinetic and I have PCL-1.9.1 installed on my computer. For the very same package, when compiled in different catkin workspaces, it performs differently.

To reproduce the error, you need a .pcd file and change the path and file name accordingly in the code.

At ~/catkin_ws

yiying@matebook-x:~/catkin_ws$ ./devel/lib/cylinder_segmentation/cylinder_segmentation

While at ~/fetchit_ws, it has segmentation fault

@stevemacenski This is not PCL sepcific. Please reopen the question.

If compiled as C++ project, it runs without any problem. The problem I have is clearly ROS related.

It is, but it also isn't.

The most likely explanation is that you have multiple different versions of PCL, and the ROS binaries (ie: pcl_ros, pcl_conversions, etc) have been linked against one version, while you are trying to use a different version in your own nodes.

If your own nodes then also link against libraries from pcl_ros et al., just about the first thing you'll run into are SEGFAULTs.

You cannot link against two different versions of the same library. That cannot work.

You will have to make sure only a single version of PCL gets linked. Directly, as well as transitively.

And the reason I write it isn't a ROS problem is because this is not ROS specific. You just happen to run into it with PCL and a ROS node, but this is a general problem which has to do with how C++ binaries are constructed.

@gvdhoorn Thanks for your comment. You made a good point about two versions of PCL and linking issue. I do have PCL 1.9.1 installed and uses PCL 1.9.1, pcl_ros and pcl_conversions in my node.

What I don't understand is why one identical package (link given in description) will lead to two different results. The same error should appears no matter where the package is compiled, right? It doesn't. I suspect it has to do with how the catkin workspace is set up/configured, but looking at both config, I cannot see what it is that leads to the problem.

@gvdhoorn Care to answer my question?

For those who are still curious about this problem, I have conducted research on it. In my project, I encountered a Segmentation Fault in PCL due to two specific CPP compile flags. However, after commenting out these flags, PCL works perfectly fine.

set(CMAKE_CXX_FLAGS "${CMAKE_CXX_FLAGS} -DEIGEN_DONT_VECTORIZE -DEIGEN_MAX_ALIGN_BYTES=0")
