QT GUI Sink: Waterfall much faster than standalone waterfall and time domain display crashes

Hi,

so I got gnuradio basically running and started to experiment. 2 things,
I noticed:

1.) The waterfall display in the QT GUI sink seems to be about twice as
fast as the standalone QT GUI Waterfall sink. That’s nothing bad but I’d
be curious where this come from.

2.) When I choose the Time Domain Display tab in the QT GUI sink, the
window just closes. Nothing on the console, like error messages, etc…
Just puff gone… Is there a know bug with that?

Have you tried calling the .py-file generated by GRC on the command
line? I’ve had some problems with segfaults caused by QT not being
displayed inside GNU Radio.

Now I have. Also exits but this time I get an error message, saying
“Floating point exception”.

You can change the rate by adjusting the Update Period in the
waterfall’s properties.

When reporting errors like this, please also provide the version of
GNU Radio you are using. Most likely, you are on 3.7.2. This sounds
like buy #615, which is fixed in the latest 3.7.2.1 bug release.

Sorry, with the same rate configured, of course :).

My mistake, sorry. According to the package info it is 3.7.2-1.1 but
gnuradio-companion --version says 3.7.2. Hard to tell, what’s the actual
version. I use the official Opensuse Ham radio repo.
