I am trying gazebo launch with empty world on my laptop. I gets following output most of the times.

Segmentation fault (core dumped)
[gazebo_gui-3] process has died [pid 9589, exit code 139, cmd /opt/ros/hydro/lib/gazebo_ros/gzclient __name:=gazebo_gui __log:=/home/nitin/.ros/log/e93d19f0-9f09-11e3-a434-00216a476f4e/gazebo_gui-3.log].
log file: /home/nitin/.ros/log/e93d19f0-9f09-11e3-a434-00216a476f4e/gazebo_gui-3*.log

Although gazebo gui do pop sometimes but fails good number of times. Could it be related to low power graphics card? I am using Ubuntu12.04 debs

EDIT 1: My machine has Nvidia Quadro Fx1700 graphics card. glxgears runs at 190 fps on full screen display of three gears. Therefore, I believe graphics card is installed properly.

Other observation i have found is that Gazebo crashes as soon as Rviz is instantiated! This is strange for me.

Could you please tell us which is your graphic card and what drivers are you using?
