Discord 0.0.11 package sometimes randomly crashes

So the discord package on nix sometimes randomly crashes for me with this error

Not sure what the issue is, but I haven’t seen this issue being reported on discords side so I assume it’s a problem with the nix package.

that’s the issue, they hard coded an absolute path into the binary. I tried sending a request but they said something to the effect of, “issues with the linux client wont receive attention as the user base is too small”

We may need to change discord into using buildFHSUserEnv, and just let it play in it’s own sandbox

FWIW I’ve been using the web client

I disliked that the packaged app fails to start if it’s not the most recent version. A pretty inane requirement.

For linux distros, there’s a .deb they allow you download and install

/sarcasm

I made a PR to fix the crashing but using buildFHSUserEnv https://github.com/NixOS/nixpkgs/pull/96246

Can you check coredumpctl and see if a dump is available? It’s possible the root cause here is https://github.com/NixOS/nixpkgs/issues/96063 (and the wget issue is just incidental, as discord tries to report the crash to its servers)

the gdb output is the same as #96063 however, I’m able to avoid the crash altogether by using the buildFHSUserEnv

I had another crash, even with the buildFHSUserEnv, PR to fix libappindicator

Please try the discord version off of master, you can run it using the following command:

NIX_PATH=nixpkgs=https://github.com/NixOS/nixpkgs/archive/master.tar.gz nix-shell -p discord --run Discord

Found this in coredumpctl

please use the package that i used above, libappindicator was causing issues, but has been fixed on master now.

The store path should be:
