Without no particular reason, instead of working, i have this message when i launch bitwig in a terminal

JRE Path: //opt/bitwig-studio/lib/jre Erreur de segmentation

I only done a Update of my debian 8.8, but until now no update caused this... I tried a fresh install of bitwig, removing all folder related to bitwig, reinstalled dependencies... And there not much documentation about this laconic error on Le Internet. Now i know debian is not officially supported, but if anyone have an idea about what cause this error i would be thankful.

Thanks you for reading anyway


The problem is the Kernel update. If you downgrade it, it should work again!

It works either on debian 8.8 and 9 with a downgraded kernel.

Thanks !

Just for clarity to other users who may read this thread: To boot an earlier kernel, select "advanced options" in the GRUB menu during boot, then select the previous kernel version. There should be at least one earlier version, probably several unless you've run autoremove (apt-get autoremove) to remove earlier kernels.

I know from a mail reply that Bitwig are looking into this, there is an issue with version 4.8.0-56 of the kernel.

I had to reinstall my OS - UbuntuStudio 17.04, which I have been using for the past while. and suddenly I'm getting a jre segfault as well. Note the kernel I'm using, the preemptive 4.10.0-24

? uname -a Linux grover 4.10.0-24-lowlatency #28-Ubuntu SMP PREEMPT Wed Jun 14 09:58:54 UTC 2017 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux
