Hi,

I've been running Designer on Linux (openSUSE and SLES) happily for almost a decade and it has never given me any troubles until
now...

I'm trying to get Designer 4.6.1 working on a virtual box running openSUSE 42.2 but as soon as I try to do any live stuff I get
a SIGSEGV:
#
# A fatal error has been detected by the Java Runtime Environment:
#
# SIGSEGV (0xb) at pc=0x00007f58594da4a0, pid=15218, tid=0x00007f58598df700
#
# JRE version: Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (8.0_112-b15) (build 1.8.0_112-b15)
# Java VM: Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM (25.112-b15 mixed mode linux-amd64 compressed oops)
# Problematic frame:
# C [libpthread.so.0+0x124a0] __lll_unlock_elision+0x30
# [...]

I have other boxes running Designer happily on openSUSE42.2 with the same version of glibc as this one. The only thing that
differs (and that might have an impact) is that HLE is enabled in the processor:

xxxxxxx:~ # cpuid | grep "HLE \| brand ="
HLE hardware lock elision = true
brand = "Intel(R) Xeon(R) CPU E5-2640 v4 @ 2.40GHz"

This is the first time I've seen HLE (TSX) enabled but maybe Intel finally made it work...


Has anyone else managed to get Linux Designer working on a recent processor with HLE support?

Best regards,
Tobias

Ps. HLE support is known to cause threading issues and the instruction set has been disabled on Intel processors by micro code
for years. Ds.
