    Segmentation fault ith g_type_check_class_cast () from /usr/lib/libgobject-2.0.so.0

    Hi,
    I am using opencv and gtk libraries. After compiling with: gcc -Wall -g `pkg-config --cflags --libs opencv` `gtk-config --cflags --libs` -o helloworld main.c, I now get a Segmentation fault problem while running my executable. Examination of the core file gives the information:

    If you type "where" at the gdb prompt, you should get a stack-backtrace, which should show you where you're doing the cast that goes wrong.

    Most likely, it's a dynamic_cast<...>(...) that is the culprit, and most likely becase you are doing somehing strange like casting a null-pointer or some other invalid pointer.

    Thank you very much!
    I am trying my luck if you or someone know how to fix the problem. Here is the information that I got:
    Code:
    (gdb) where
    #0  0xb7028485 in g_type_check_class_cast () from /usr/lib/libgobject-2.0.so.0
    #1  0xb7cf5f18 in ?? () from /usr/lib/libhighgui.so.1
    #2  0xb7bc0628 in ?? () from /usr/lib/libgtk-1.2.so.0
    #3  0xb7bc0848 in gtk_type_class () from /usr/lib/libgtk-1.2.so.0
    #4  0xb7bc0ac2 in gtk_type_new () from /usr/lib/libgtk-1.2.so.0
    #5  0xb7cf66e4 in cvImageWidgetNew () from /usr/lib/libhighgui.so.1
    #6  0xb7cf68af in cvNamedWindow () from /usr/lib/libhighgui.so.1
    #7  0x0804894e in main (argc=Cannot access memory at address 0x0
    ) at main.c:24
    My code is
    Code:
    int main( int argc, char** argv )
    {
      // Set up variables
      CvFont font;
      CvPoint pt;
      CvScalar colour;
      CvSize text_size;
      char window_name[] = "Hello World!";
      int line_type = CV_AA; // change it to 8 to see non-antialiased graphics
      int width = 1000, height = 700;
    
      // Create an image
      IplImage* image = cvCreateImage( cvSize(width,height), 8, 3 );
    
      // Create a window
      cvNamedWindow(window_name, 1 );
    
      ...
    If I step over the line using cvNameWindow, I would get
    Code:
    Breakpoint 3, main (argc=Cannot access memory at address 0x201000
    ) at main.c:24
    24	  cvNamedWindow(window_name, 1 );
    (gdb) n
    
    Program received signal SIGSEGV, Segmentation fault.

    Yes, the crash happens inside the call to cvNamedWindow() - in fact, I'd say cvImageWidgetNew is a likely candidate. But the problem is most likely that you pass something wrong into it.

    A little bit update.
    I just compile and run with the same code in Visual C++. All is fine. But in Linux, I got Segmentation Fault.
    Could it be another possibility: the library opencv, gtk or glib in my Linux is impaired?

    A couple of points.
    1. Why is argc in main so screwed up already, even in a simple program.

    2. I see you called the program main.c (a C program), yet I thought gtk was a C++ library.
    This means that you probably haven't called all the global constructors yet.

    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.

    Ah, my mistake. I have two versions of gtk on my system. I used "gtk-config --cflags --libs', which provides info of gtk-1.2 and results in the previous error. But the error goes away when I use the info provided by "pkg-config --cflags --libs gtk+-2.0'. All I can guess is that the opencv library I am using depends on gtk+-2.0 with new features not present in gtk-1.2.

    I think I might accidentally install gtk-1.2 myself and want to uninstall it. How to check if it is not in used by other programs and safe to uninstall? I find that I cannot uninstall them by "sudo apt-get remove gtk-1.2", or "sudo apt-get remove gtk+-1.2", or "sudo apt-get remove gtk1.2". It is hard for me to identify what exactly to uninstall. Even searching synaptics software manager in my ubuntu system, there will be so many software associated with "gtk 1.2", making me uncertain what to remove.

    I also noticed the info of gtk-1.2 cannot be retrieved by pkg-config but by gtk-config, something that looks so specific, while gtk+-2.0 only works with pkg-config not with gtk-config. Looks like gtk-1.2 has a file called gtk-config while gtk+- 2.0 gtk+-2.0.pc. Another library libpng can be used in both "libpng-config --cflags --libs" and "pkg-config --cflags --libs libpng". What's the point that things are so different for different libraries and even same library but different versions?
