Re: [opensuse-factory] Leap 42.3: Only GTK apps start, all others segfault at startup

I have updated my Leap 42.2 to 42.3 (current version as of today).

Not at all 'current' . Leap 42.3 has not been released yet. Where did
you get 
this info?

I know that 42.3 is in beta, and therefore I posted to the factory
mailing list. And therefore what I mean with "current" is the most
recent snapshot of the currently "rolling release" state of 42.3 :-/.

Everything went without a hitch. However, I had to discover that
only GTK
apps still work. I tried that from Gnome and IceWM. The desktop is
and GTK apps (maybe other toolkits, too) start. Anything Qt based
at startup. The same with Firefox. This is on a i915 integrated
laptop. I also created a blank user account, same situation. I
really don't
know where to find a hint what's going on here. Any ideas?


Yep, you've upgraded to a not yet finished release.

I know that. However, given the conservative strategy of Leap, in which
42.3 does not really seem so much different than an updated 42.2, I had
the hope not to run into relevant problems.

Having said that, 42.3 runs 
very stable on my test partition, upgrade through 'zypper dup' after
the repos resulted in a working desktop ( and other things I checked
). The 
phenomena you describe make me think your upgrade strategy was

I did two upgrade strategies. One was "zypper dup" from the running
system with the 42.3 repo enabled - only GTK apps start. I went back to
42.2, and tried again by updating with a bootable installation USB
stick. Agsin, only GTK apps start. No Qt, no Firefox, no Chrome...

I fail to see problems with the update strategy.
