3.1.16 and older consistently crash on Yosemite

Postby beekay » Mon Oct 09, 2017 1:08 am

I updated 3.1.0 :a5cab92: to 3.1.16 :891d05ea: in the hopes that it would not crash as 3.1.0 did, but 3.1.16 still crashes in the same way (EXC_BAD_ACCESS (SIGBUS) / KERN_PROTECTION_FAILURE). I have tried 3.1.16, 3.1.15, 3.1.9, 3.1.8, and 3.1.0, and they all crash in the same way, both while I am interacting with the app and without any interaction with the app in the background. After I start the app, it will crash within minutes, or not, and crash shortly later. I don't think I've had it running for a half hour without it crashing.

MacBook Pro 11,3 with Yosemite 10.10.5, 16gb RAM, plenty of space on the SSD.

3.1.0 runs fine on Mountain Lion on a MacMini. I have not tried any other versions on ML.

See log files in the attached archive.

The log timestamped 191658 is a run of 3.1.16 after clicking the Refresh button in the toolbar, while a refresh was in progress.
193311 is a run of 3.1.6 after launching and switching immediately to another app, with Vienna left to run in the background, and with no user interaction at all.
201510 is a run of 3.1.9 after launching and switching immediately to another app, with Vienna left to run in the background, and with no user interaction at all. (I chose 3.1.9 for no particular reason.)

Thank you.

Hi,

Have you changed the number of concurrent downloads in the advanced preferences?

Thanks :)

The number of concurrent downloads in advanced preferences is set to 10. I do not recall if I have ever changed it or if this is the default. Should I change it? To more or fewer or to a specific number?

------------------------------
Edit: I set the number of concurrent downloads to 1, 5, and 15, and each time, refreshed feeds, and each time, Vienna crashed while refreshing. See attached logs.

Note that Vienna has crashed in the past not only while refreshing feeds, but while reading articles, or while sitting idle in the background (or doing whatever it might have been doing while in the background).

Could you try quitting Vienna, moving aside the preferences file (~/Library/Preferences/uk.co.opencommunity.vienna2.plist) and relaunch ?
Don’t change any preference for a time and report back if you encounter the crash.
