We recently switched to linux and we are now experiencing a major problem we're unable to resolve.
The problem is pretty simple to replicate :
- We launch Nuke 8.0 from Shotgun website or with the tank command
- We submit a render with the Thinkbox submitter while activating the Draft plugin (for Quicktime movie generation)
When those 2 conditions are met, Nuke crashes instantly. If I only render the Nuke script without Quicktime generation, all go well. If I start Nuke without Shotgun, all go well. Under Windows, all go well too.
I talked a lot with the troubleshooting at Thinkbox Software. They made me change a couple of things in their submitter, but it didn't solve my problem. While trying to resolve it, I added some old school debugging, writing files on disk to know where the submitter crash. The weirdest thing is, when this old school debugging is in place, it stops crashing, but only on my computer. As soon as I remove the disk writes (mainly f = open('/path/to/disk/linenumber.log', 'w')), the crashes come back.
We are using Nuke 8.0v3 64bits under CentOS 6.5 (final) 64bits. We're pretty much up-to-date for the Shotgun Toolkit, with a lot of in-house hooks devellopment.
We are also considering to eventually drop Draft for RVIO to solve this problem and some others. Does RVIO and Shotgun loves each other? :)
