Quartus 17.1 SegFaults on Compilation Start - HELP?

Honored Contributor II

Hi - so in order to upgrade to 17.1, I bought a new PC (my old one was running Centos 5), and I installed Centos 17.3 (current release). I downloaded and installed Quartus 17.1.  


When I start compilation, it pauses for about 5 sec, and then it crashes with a Segfault (see below). It's not 100% consistent. The first time I tried loading some projects built in 17.0 it ran, once (re-run caused SegFault), and if I created a new project it SegFaulted 1/2 the time on the first run (and 100% on subsequent runs). 


Sometimes I just get the message 


Segmentation Fault quartus (core dumped). 


Sometimes I get something like

Try to remove completely and re-install version 17.1. You may have some luck.
