The first time I ran monerod in whonix, everything worked perfectly. But everytime after that, when I try to start it up, everything looks normal (green line read: NET service bound to ...)(second green line read: core rpc server initialized OK on port ...), but then (after 5 more white lines of stuff) I get Segmentation fault and everything stops.

What do I do to fix this?

Is the problem with monerod, whonix, or my OS?

My whonix freezes sometimes after awhile especially with multiple programs up. Also, I notice my monero folder on my base OS has a monero-wallet-cli.log but on my whonix instance my monero folder never makes one of those that I see at least (it is the 32 bit version (v0-10-0-0) on whonix, but 64 bit version on my base OS)

  • It looks like based on link it is a problem with monerod

monerod having a Segmentation Fault is likely an issue with monerod - However for anyone who comes here from Google, OP's version is v0.10, which is from 2016. Updating your Monero version will likely fix the issue.

If you have the latest Monero verison, create an issue on the Monero Github
