2.3.0 Segmenation fault on Raspberry Pi with OpenElec

Recommended Posts


On my Raspberry Pi (model B), the version 2.3.0 of btsync cannot run, I have a "segmenation fault" message, even if I only want to show help message.

I run it with OpenElec distribution : http://openelec.tv/

I don't have this problem with previous versions.

raspberry:~ # wget http://download-cdn.getsync.com/2.3.0/linux-arm/BitTorrent-Sync_arm.tar.gz

raspberry:~ # tar -xzvf BitTorrent-Sync_arm.tar.gz
raspberry:~ # ./btsync --help
Segmentation fault

I currently use the version 2.2.7 http://download-cdn.getsync.com/2.2.7/linux-arm/BitTorrent-Sync_arm.tar.gz

Thanks for your help


edit : Of course, I have the same behavior with the URL used on the download page http://download-cdn.getsync.com/stable/linux-arm/BitTorrent-Sync_arm.tar.gz

Hi Remirus,

Thanks for the version, but I experience the same error.

Also, I cannot use the deb packages since the openelec distribution has no package manager.

Sync 2.3 is building with the new toolchain, it seems OpenELEC has some troubles with it. It is the official toolchain from Debian. On Raspbian, for example, Sync works well. We are going to contact OpenELEC's support.

Unfortunately, our investigation came to the fact that OpenELEC use its own build system and the toolchain. So, we are very sorry, but OpenELEC is unsupported since 2.3.

I forgot to thank you for the help and I understand the reasons for the end of support.

I moved to OSMC instead of OpenElec for various reasons and it works fine !
