Crashes and Today’s Release Candidate

We’ve been reading your blog comments and receiving your in-world messages and crash reports throughout the day. We know that some of you are experiencing crashes upon starting today’s 1.18.4 Release Candidate, and apologize to those of you who have been on the receiving end of this (I’m one of them!).

We believe some empty URIs may be the culprit, but we are still working to isolate some variables right now.

Please help us to better isolate and correct these crashes by sharing the following information with us:

  • Your operating system (Mac, PC, etc.)
  • Your network configuration (at work or at home, behind a firewall or not, wireless or not)
  • The name of your Internet service provider (ISP)
  • The type of router you have

Please provide this information, ideally, as a bug report in the PJIRA I’ve created to track these crashes (VWR-2813) or as a comment to this post (but remember, comments are capped at 100, and I’d really like to ensure we get as many reports as possible).

Thank you for your participation and your patience today.

    I am on a DMZ (no firewall) DSL through AT&T direct connect with allowing “SLVoice” to run. (Never had to do that befor)

    It also h”hanged” when clearing the cache. IT IS PURE EVIL AND WILL ADD OVER AN HOUR OF TRYING TO REVERT BACK IF YOU LIKE THAT!!!!

    Oh, Windows XP.

  2. tito young says:

    I am through cable interent PLUS running wireless. I’ve notice complete sluggish behavior prior to full system down. Tends to also be related to crossing sims.

    slvoice running
    skype running

  3. Web Page says:

    XP Pro
    DSL, firewalled (standard)

    The release candidate seems ok as did all versions previously (to normal degree). I think I skipped one release candidate right before the new one’s release so that one may not have worked

    I CAN NOT LOG IN TO THE CURRENT CLIENT (I can log in, and appear in world, revieve data to light up green dots on my minimap… ) but my bandwidth completely chokes off before I can do anything at all.

  5. thegrimmling Snook says:

    oh, I was also using wireless, but for my connection that is not an issue. I should of known there was an issue when the client was 6 megs smaller than they official release. This one is pure evil and will damage everything about you. Forgive the previous spelling. I was too upset.

    Seriously, I will NEVER trust a Release Canedate EVER AGAIN posted on the blog after this. This was my first time and the damage caused by it is almost unforgivable. Did you even test this?

    NTL Hell, now Virgin Media
    LinkSYS Wireless Router (cable connection tho), no DMZ.

    Made unrelated change to region setting (Block Parcel Search, then uncheck Block…) the region maturnity setting reverted to PG and would not allow itself to be changed back to Mature.

    @7: what even happened that is so gruesome to you? o_O

  11. Argent Stonecutter says:

    I always clear the cache manually by deleting the cache directory – SL seems to be particularly slow about just deleting a bunch of files.

    Clearing the cache got rid of my RC crash problems, but I don’t do anything in SL that involved URIs that I’m aware of (no streaming, no web pages in people’s profiles, …).

    good evening…Im operating xp, att firewalled. dsl… I crash just sitting there.. then bam ‘soft ‘ crash.. nothing…reboots and im off and running once more..
    thx for the attention you are giving this problem.. ‘good job’…

    in game after this post.
    PC Win XP.
    Verizon FIOS with the router/firewall configured per your specs
    SL Release candidate froze with the lag warning of too many complex objects. Windows saw SL as not responding. I gave it 5-7 minutes and it didn’t come back so I axed SL and restarted wiindoze. I’m back on at the old version

  15. Ann Otoole says:

    lol… well its not really funny but it is in a way. i have no clue how you guys managed to pull off this bug…

    i teleported and my camera view stayed in the sim i was in while my avatar went to the new sim really really fast. until i pressed escape at which time my cam instantly went to the new sim.

  16. jeffrey weka says:

    I usually don’t post to these blogs…but honestly I can’t say I have seen

    guys credit when its due. Way to go! (This time)

  17. Votslav Hax says:

    …sorry one more thing…everytime i open this blog or internet explorer.. i get a crash and a ‘blurb’ box that says that a ‘mangled stream has been detected and that to remidy the situation i should reinstall sl… anyone else run into this ..? thx

  18. thegrimmling Snook says:

    From looking at this blog, it seems that ONLY XP users are experiencing issues. Are there any Vista users having problems? I know XP and Vista have a different coding core base and I suspect that is the issue.

    Oh, I am on XP with SP2

  19. thegrimmling Snook says:

    Seriously, you messed up bad. This one should of never seen the light of day due to the issues. I had to even clear my registry to try and fix the problems caused by this. It has caused an over-all performance drop with my PC.

    @1,5,7,19 thegrimmling Snook – Only 100 comments, we heard you the first time. leave some space for others PLEASE. And… this is a release candidate. It is for testing, looking for just these bugs. If you are *that* sensative then stick to the production versions.

  22. Wizard Gynoid says:

    I was about to install the upgrade. since i’m on XP, don’t think i will now, until i hear this is resolved.

    better safe than sorry…

    -Logged in alright the first time I got the update, but a failed teleport forced me to log out. After that, every time i would try to log in to Secondlife Release Candidate, it would crash.

    XP sp 2

    While installing it put three shortcuts on my desktop…none of which worked. Workaround was to find the .exe file and click that. Then made new shortcut for desktop from exe. The original three in the install seem to have been from the clipboard. (???) Very strange. Now i have signed in and it seems stable.
    Good luck….and thanks for all your efforts!

  29. 14 crashes within an hour…. (XP – laptop, 2 GB, new equipment, router ADSL, 6 MB connection)

    I think alomst the premium account amounts are not worth to be paid anymore…

    A decent web service like my own provider has (99.999% uptime !) should be the goal of you, Lindens!

    I pay for a service, so it should be kept UP!

    All those ‘ improvements’ …. they are simply adding new bugged features…. at least that’s how i feel it…. and using SL to do my business is getting more awkward by the day… is that where i pay for? (including 19& VAT??????)

    ….. i just hope yopu take your business as serious as i take mine, or i will be gone, and with me maybe half of your premiums…

  30. mo Molinaro says:

    On vista, getting crash if i start the client as user. No crash if i execute as admin. This was not the case with previous RC, wich would start with user privilege.

    The problem is that for the first time in a whole year, I crashed about 15 or more times in 2 hours, not doing anything special (chatting, a couple of times emptying trash, or just standing still), but this has happened too on the official viewer and even with the 1.18.2 (1), which I tried also when I was getting desperate…

    1 gig RAM

    Comcast 1.5 ghz connection

    Sygate firewall

    NVidia Geforce 7600 (With latest drivers)

    For the last two releases, and the current standard client, I crash a good bit of the time just turning my avatar or moving the camera position. And sometiees just standing in one spot. Starting yesterday I was also experiencing ‘hangs’ on the client with varying times as to how long it lasted.

    I have run full system diagnostics and everything is fine. Tweaked and adjusted settings lower – no effect.

    SL is the *only* program I run that it acts this way on, and I run a lot of varying things that cause a wide range of system loads.

  33. Sayuuri Watanabe says:

    I use a Mac OSX
    Tiger Software
    Comcast so no firewall
    Skype, Adium, and internet (sometimes running)

    Also. Everday SL crashes. I’m so annoyed at it. Usually I just stand them and in 3-20 minutes I crash. I am so frustrated with this and it has been happening since day one of SL.

    I have been using the Nicholaz SL viewer for the last 3-4 weeks now 🙂

    Router’s an actiontec, not sure which version

  49. Ann Otoole says:

    editing linked prim textures… horizontal and vertical repeats are linked together. can’t change one without the other changing to the same value. this is a bad RC and can be yanked at anytime. Try again when you can write code without introducing defects in areas of code you should not have touched. time to uninstall this borked client and go back to the previous stable RC version that should have been promoted to production. This one is a huge step backwards.

    It seems that Linden is just working like the asian bios-programmers for computer mainboards… anytime you put out “beta versions” instead of fixing first the important bugs and then make a new client for us. No worry, think over it!

    2nd Report

    All three systems still running. However primary system is locking up while turning my avitar. Cleared cache and tried again. Mainly when making right hand turns while flying. Stationary motion right hand turn. Does not lock up on left hand turns. Screen freezes with arrow key highlighted, then screen goes white and locks.

    This happens on the dual card system, but not on the laptop or single card system as mentioned in #23. Frame rate in the sim is still at 44 or better and time dilation is between 99 and 1. Seems to be an issue with the refresh from the client.

    No voice enabled. (Who needs it?)
    I run the default viewer, not the release candidate. Yet, I would like to share some of my recent observations:
    – Since about 2-3 offical releases, the SL performance deteriorates for me. A new symptom is sporadic freezing of the client for 3s up to 30s (many other users told me it happens to them, too -> seems “by design”), MTBF around 1-10minutes. The client then uses 100% CPU of one of my 2 cores.
    – The past 2 rolling restarts deteriorated the experience, too. (your work on server side seems to contribute!)
    – CTRL-SHIFT-1 time info shows that image and network time peak up above 10s more often than they used to. My average network frame rate (Germany) is around 5-7fps.
    – I stopped doing anything which requires even the faintest real time (like sparring with bow and arrow) since the past updates. Standing on a spot and moving slowly sometimes works 😉
    – Crashes around 3-5 times in 10 hours (pretty stable)
    – Memory usage increases and I usually restart SL when it is close to 2GB RAM usage.
    – I downloaded the latest viewer sources and inspected how you configure your udp…you run in polling mode (nonblocking). Very special approach. You might want to consider to change to a blocking configuration and introduce some receive thread(s). The single threaded, free running rendering loop approach…might not be it (my private opinion)

    Same observation here :

    Horizontal and vertical texture repeats appear linked and reset to 1.000 when 0.700 is reached.

    OS = XP home
    Network = 16,b ADSL nominal speedcheck shows 8912Mbit so bandwidth isnt an issue with the RC.
    Network feeds an ADSL Router – No firewall used.

    How the hell have u managed to screw the code for these controls? I’d have assumed that this was an area of code that would not be affected by the changes you have made (Which I havent tested by the way but will now before I uninstall the RC and go back to the “stable” version)

    I’ve also reported this in the PJIRA (VWR-2355) and got the notice that it was resolved, even if it wasn’t.

    Multiple crashes, sometimes 5-6 in an hour. Or the viewer simply freezes for up to a minute, causing the rest of my system to hang as well. This happens especially if I use the camera, but sometimes it’s enough that I simply turn my avatar around. I’ve not experienced anything like this on other equally graphics- and ressource heavy programs. And it doesn’t matter whether I have anything else running at the same time or not.

    Yes, please fix

    the crashes while turning or using the cam..
    the crashes while teleporting..
    the sudden freezes that result in a 20-60 second hourglass and occasionally a crash..
    the uncontrollable walking into quicksand pavement or flying into never never land.. which eventually results in rubberbanding or a crash..
    the random detachment of attachments during teleports..
    the bug where worn attachements stick to your groin..

    All these have been reported over and over and over for months now.. oh yes.. and i wouldn’t be writing this if region handshakes weren’t broken right now and the system would let me log in and play..

    like in the build menu you switched some of the checkboxes around. Now i keep hitting the wrong ones. WHY do you do this was there a reason for it?


    Is it me or does this new verison have trouble with textures? When ever I alter the rotation, repeat or offsets of textures, the Flip boxes turn on and off, the rpeats for horizontal and vetrticle keep matching eachother and undoin new values I enter and jumping around. It’s a real pain to texture anything, nigh impossible in fact, to do it properly without many repeated attempts

    Still not sure what a ‘Client Frame Rate’ is…but the ‘new’ lag meter is in RED and it says:

    ‘Below 10-Possible cause: Too many complex objects in scene’.

    The other lights are green.

    My question or concern is WHAT is tooo complex? WHY would they be tooo complex? Too many prims? If so is the system not set up to allow for complex? Will I have to rid myself of prims I paid good money for, to use?

    This seems to me, to be ANOTHER way to put the ‘blame’ for lag on the user, NOT the servers, or whatever else supports the prim use.

    The other two lights are green, only the one I would be responsible for per use of prims is red…

    I paid good money for the ‘complex’ prims, to build my home, my business, my ambience FOR the business–NOW I have to be told that I’m RESPONSIBLE for the ‘red’ light and the use of ‘complex’ Prims…

    OK, then GIVE me back the ESTIMATED L$250,000 or so I’ve spent in 3 years here–for land, buildings (I have 260 prefabs), furniture, clothing, hair, gifts, support of meetings, and various other items purchased here–PLUS the tier fees and membership fees I’ve paid and I will ELIMINATE said ‘Complex items’ and live on bare land, ok? In fact, I will eliminate land altogether and I won’t even have to pay tier fees, mmmm kkkk?

    I can be a gypsy like so many others here in SL…I’m beginning to think THEY have the right idea. Why pay for something I CAN’T enjoy, or I CAN be blamed for enjoying…

    The whole issue goes back to lag…YOU must take SOME responsibility for the problem, it isn’t ALL the member who is doing this through use of ‘Complex’ prims.

    In my estimation the ‘Lag’ meter is useless as long as it BLAMES members for the ‘Complex prim’ usage.

  104. Troy says:

    OK let me make this stright and simple. My Computer Surpasses the damn system req pages. but a factor of 10x why is the cilent light on the meter red. maybe poorly programed. put in havok4 already and dont make a fool of your selfs!

    maybe test viewers shouldn’t be put up on the blog, since it seems people have a problem with the meaning of “test”.
    also, use a seperate folder for test viewers cache.

  108. Vivienne says:

    Had some problems with editing texture rotations and repeats. The tab did not work properly. But all in all it seems to render a bit faster and seems to be a bit more respondable than the official client- and the lag assistant is really a progress. Not more or less crashes than with the official client, too.

  109. Vivienne says:

    Ah, forgot my machine..

    G5, 2x 2 Ghz
    MacOs 13.9
    ATI Radeon 9800

    And by the way, is a “complex object” anything including more than estimated 300 Prims? Cause the client starts lagging extremely and the network moderately as soon as more than 300 prims are around. Are scripts of importance? Would be interesting to know at which point the graphic board passes operations to the processor and why. 256 MB graphic RAM here. But all of this is not etter or worse i the official client, so…business as usual.

    Excuse me? Get your act together, guys. With the problems I’ve been reading about I will *not* upgrade this weekend. I’ll try to figure out a work around that will let me use the current RC viewer, which is working just fine for me, thank you. If I can’t I’ll wait until you get the bugs worked out of this one.

    SL is pretty messed up right now. but there is no support on the weekends so nobody to tell. the asset system is really really messed up. i wish LL would hire a real 24*7 staff and manage this wonderful thing in a professional and responsible manner.

    linking prims? what a joke. just keeps cycling between linked and unlinked. almost as though there were two mirrored databases fighting for control of asset transactions. try hiring a real data architect. yea you’ll have to pay big bucks. you get what you pay for. college kiddies are not data architects.

  114. Lincoln Lightfoot says:

    And how in the h*** are you supposed to tell the difference between this release crash and a crash that happened routinely in prior versions? No doubt, the most UNSTABLE, software I have seen & I am in the business and have used BETA’s many times. Your public version does not approach a beta.

    It’s too bad, you almost had a good thing going. I am not a Dba or system architect, but I know many. This type of performance would be intolerable in the real world.

  130. Kettu Keiko says:

    While you are out fixing the texture RpF issue, can you seperate the Repeats per Meter into Horizontal and Vertical as well? That would make texturing easier across different-sized prims (like floors and ceilings for example) Trying to calculate that what the RpF value for say, 1.66 Horizontal RpF AND 2.25 Vertical RpF on a 10×10 meter prim onto a piece that’s say 6.825×8.125 is a pain.. but currently RpM is stuck at a 1:1 “aspect ratio” if you will..

    Of the myriad of problems listed above the only one I’m experiencing is the texture “repeats per face” bug where values you enter get erased.

    What happened to “Disable Camera Constraints”? Torley recently taught the world about this feature in a “Tip of the week”, and now you’ve removed it. Right Hand/Left Hand problem, LL?

  142. Rascal Ratelle says:

    “Disable Camera Constraints” feature has not been removed. Perhaps this is the symptom of another issue?
    sounds to me like that particular feature failed to load in your client. (missing content/data?)

    Try Clearing your Cache and reloading your client, that should clear that up.

  143. Wanja Lubitsch says:

    “Disable Camera Constraints” is still in the “Client” Menu, maybe you have this menu disabled? See Torley’s tip you mentioned on how to get it back.

    I have the texture problem too, but the crashes are way more important.

    Anybody else tested the ping times (see above) not from within the viewer?

    notable observation:

    1. when running the official SL RC, almost complete lack of functionality and high risk of asset damage, forcing a crash to prevent further destruction is usually the best option

    2. when running with the Nicholaz patch, “normal” (for SL) behavior, that is, crashes no more than twice a day, tp and money work 80% of the time, 5-minute freezelag lockups at 0.2 fps about 3 times per hour. The only notable deterioration relative to the last release seems to be significantly slower loading of textures, resulting in walking around in a universe of grey slabs and ditto avatars much of the time.

    Maybe Linden Labs should think of hiring Nicholaz Beresford 🙂

    Disclaimer: I am not affiliated with Nicholaz in any way (except I send him crash reports every so often), I just use his stuff because it’s good 🙂

    Another bug with the new RC viewer, is that when I login in, the big red teleport beacon doesn’t disappear. I have to go to map and click on clear to make it disappear.

    I still use 1.8.2 and it runs fine but since last week SL has gone on its worsed. Yesterday I had the most worse day with 4 crashes and constantly lag meter in red, fluctuating bandwith meter and very slow rezzing of surroundings and with changing clothing from inventory. Made no difference, almost every sim I had the same problem. Guys concentrate on this problems please before putting in new gadgets and working on voice. Almost a year in SL and the quality has gone worse since every update and certainly since the 1.8 introduction.

    I had no problems running this new RC… In fact, I was rather oblivious, simply enjoying the fixes and new bits.

    Then I installed the Havok beta, tried it out for a half-hour or so, then tried to log back onto the main grid with this new RC. And could not do so properly.

    I found myself at 10,10,10 in my home Sim, which for some reason then crashed. I tried to log back in after the region was back up, but still no joy.

    As I had not had any problem till I installed the Havok beta, I un-installed it. After it was out of the system, I tried to log in, and was able to do so normally.

    I suppose I’d be willing to try a reinstall of the Havok beta to see if the problem re-occurred, but I’m not hot to do so…

    Perhaps this might be causing some of these issues?
