This is very strange: ipython is pure python code, with no C extensions AT
ALL. This means that any segfault induced by ipython in reality points to a
problem with the underlying python VM. Here are a few things you can try:
- remove or rename the ~/.ipython directory, to make sure you start with an
empty profile which is not loading any hidden extensions.
- try the following at a system prompt:
python -c 'import IPython'
That should simply return silently, if all is OK.
- Next, try this:
Python 2.3.4 (#1, Feb 2 2005, 12:11:53)
[GCC 3.4.2 20041017 (Red Hat 3.4.2-6.fc3)] on linux2
Type "help", "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information.
>>> import IPython
This should manually start an ipython instance. Post an actual screen grab of
what you get, it may give me some ideas.
