SMPlayer does not start with latest qt5-base (5.9.0-2) and qt5-script (5.9.0-1). It just aborts with the message "Aborted (core dumped)".

Downgrading qt5-base to 5.8.0-12 and qt5-script to 5.8.0-1 solves the issue.


>> $ smplayer
>> This is SMPlayer v. 17.6.0 (revision 8580) running on Linux
>> Aborted (core dumped)

Additional info:
* SMPlayer 17.6.0-1 (revision 8580)

Steps to reproduce:

Update qt, start 'smplayer' from terminal.

Okay, I figured it out.

It seems like there was something wrong with one or more settings files
saved at '.config/smplayer/'. I removed the folder, and it works again.

Sorry for the hasty report, I should have tried that before opening the ticket.

Although there probably is a bug as newer versions shouldn't abort() on older
configurations but rather validate the input and exit gracefully with a proper
error message. :)
