RStudio v1.2.637-1 Preview crashes when resizing window

#1

I just installed RStudio v1.2.637-1 Preview release on Ubuntu 18.04 (Bionic Beaver, which means I am still running R 3.44) When I try and resize the window, RStudio crashes silently. It adds the following event in the R.session.log:

21 May 2018 16:29:11 [rsession-michael] ERROR Parent terminated; LOGGED FROM: void {anonymous}::detectParentTermination() /var/lib/jenkins/workspace/IDE/open-source-pipeline/master/src/cpp/session/SessionMain.cpp:1266

Thought I would pass it on.


#2

That's just the message from R when it notices the crash. I wasn't able to reproduce this w/ 1.2.637 on Ubuntu 18.04 -- maybe something more specific is going on (video driver/GPU acceleration?)


#3

That's possible. I have an Nvidia Geforce GTX750 Ti card. Currently I'm using the X.org Nouveau driver, but I will try and switch the Nvidia's 390 package and see if that sorts it. Thanks for looking into this.


#4

Well, at least initially, it seems happier. Hasn't crashed on several zooming/resizing adjustments after switching to Nvidia's proprietary drivers.

Thanks,
Michael
