Trace of the crash

I'm using an AMD A10-7800 with integrated GPU, and in this case Ubuntu 16.04 with default drivers.

1. Enable OpenGL rendering
2. Visit 'Help -> About LibreOffice' (or probably just do a bunch of random things, I was going for the simplest way)
=> LibreOffice, the driver, sometimes the whole system crashes.

Happens both with v5.1.4.2 and v5.2.1.2.

This crash is mentioned in different bug reports already: bug 101387 and bug 100981. => setting status of this report to NEW

Setting severity to critical: though the crash only appears once before automatically disabling OpenGL, it's a particularly nasty one.

Attaching gdbtrace log.

Björn, you might want to follow up on this.
Comment 2 Aron Budea 2016-09-27 02:05:22 UTC
So, I opened a ticket on launchpad, which was closed with the hint that Ubuntu's builtin crash reporter should be used. I filed a crash report.

I wonder if the fixes for bug 102295 have any effect here... have to check later.

Aron: do you still reproduce this after having upgraded towards last stable LO version (by using ppa) + last stable graphic/OpenGL drivers?
(+ rename your LO directory profile as usual to force LO to rescan OpenGL drivers)

If you still reproduce this, could you apply https://wiki.documentfoundation.org/QA/FirstSteps#Graphics-related_issues_.28OpenGL.29 ?
Indeed, perhaps we may need to blacklist some OpenGL Driver? (see https://opengrok.libreoffice.org/xref/core/vcl/opengl/opengl_blacklist_windows.xml)
Comment 5 Aron Budea 2018-02-05 05:16:19 UTC
No crash in / Ubuntu 17.10 with OpenGL enabled.
Closing as WFM.
