ofImage crashes with "Segmentation Fault" error on Ubuntu


Hi everyone

I have a program running on Ubuntu that is showing multiple images.
I have a strange problem with ofImage. When it reaches a specific image, it crashes my program with the following error:

Segmentation Fault (core dumped)

I have created a simple program which does nothing but loading the image. It doesn’t even draw the image, and with this specific image, it always crashes. so the code is really simple (it’s in my setup function):

ofImage img;

The image is about 7mb and it opens fine with ubuntu’s image viewer. I have also tested the code with images as big as 30mb’s and it works fine, so the size is not the problem.

Since my program is supposed to load images provided by a third party, changing the images would not be an option.
Can someone tell me what I can do to fix this?

I tested the same image in openframeworks on Windows7 and it works. So the problem happens only in Ubuntu.

Thanks in advance

EDIT: I cropped the faulty image just a little bit and now it loads without crashing my program. Since I have been able to load much bigger images with bigger dimensions, I’m not sure how this tiny cropping has that effect. In any case, since I don’t have access to the images passed to the program at runtime, even if the program can’t load the image, it would be nice to at least prevent the program from crashing. I used try/catch blocks but didn’t help. any ideas?

Img.load Segmentation fault (core dumped)

I can’t seem to find any solution for this problem. I’ve even tried using ofPixels and textures instead.
I also tried reading the image with ofFile and ofBuffer, but after loading the buffer into image with ofLoadImage, it Still crashes every time.

I used gdb to run the program in the command line and here’s the output when it crashes:

Program received signal SIGSEGV, Segmentation fault.

here’s the output after running bt :

Can anyone give me some hint?
Thanks in advance

EDIT: I finally managed to solve this by downloading openframeworks again and installing everything. stil have no clue what the problem was though!
