  • hi guys,
    after updating opera-stable to 29.0.1795.47. systemd crashes everytime i try to run opera. here is the output of journalctl -r

    May 12 12:08:47 mark3 systemd-coredump[11898]: Process 1 (systemd) of user 0 dumped core.

    i have tried running opera with fresh profile, but nothing have changed.
    any ideas what the cause could be?

  • Hi,

    got the same problem with freshly upgraded Debian to 8 stable.
    Opera won't run:

    traps: opera[23164] general protection ip:7fc3a5e925d2 sp:7ffe05966610 error:0 in[7fc3a5e5c000+19f000]

    But it happens only when I try to lunch it as a root.
    When logged as a normal user there is no problem at all.
    But what causes the error?
    Has anybody had a simillar case?

  • You shouldn't run it as root, then you also mess up with the configuration files of Opera.

  • in my case it happens also when i run as a normal user
