Since I still couldn't create meshes using the standard mesher, I've asked in the FreeCAD forums:

A user mentioned, that he is using the package med-openmpi instead of med and hdf5-openmpi instead of hdf5. I've tried that and it did indeed solve the issue for now. Maybe this can help others, too.

@greyltc you need to rebuild this package after updating to qt5 5.15.

@SunDoctor that seems to be a problem with Nouveau. Did you try with the proprietary Nvidia driver?

Freecad is very unstable on my Arch. :-( In Sketch mode it always breaks with log:

Program received signal SIGSEGV, Segmentation fault.

@lonaowna: Thank you for the tip! After an short attempt at downgrading didn't work, I decided to download the current AppImage version to create meshes. I can live with that, until the issue is resolved. :-)

lonaowna commented on 2020-05-04 18:14

@neo2001 yes, there are some compatibility issues with HDF5 1.12 and MED. See also the discussion over at the med package.

I think downgrading HDF5 should provide a temporary solution.

Although I did not recompile in the last weeks, suddenly I can't create meshes using the default mesher anymore (also for older, existing models).

I just get an error: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

I did recompile it (without errors) after that, but it didn't change anything.

Can anyone confirm this?

The PYSIDE2RCCBINARY issue was fixed upstream a while ago:

If you are still having trouble building, remove your build files and try again. If there are still issues, leave a comment here.
