Error launching Gazebo

Hi all. When I try to launch Gazebo I get this error:

Segmentation fault (core dumped)
[gazebo_gui-3] process has died [pid 1982, exit code 139, cmd /opt/ros/kinetic/lib/gazebo_ros/gzclient __name:=gazebo_gui __log:=/home/as/.ros/log/e68bf484-cfc4-11e7-9ecc-e9c8b733df76/gazebo_gui-3.log].
log file: /home/as/.ros/log/e68bf484-cfc4-11e7-9ecc-e9c8b733df76/gazebo_gui-3*.log

My question is: this error appears because my laptop is old or because I did something wrong when I installed ROS?
Of course I am new in this field.

Hi @xtrix,

Thanks for your interest in ROS and Gazebo. However we ask that you please ask questions on following our support guidelines:

ROS Discourse is for news and general interest discussions. ROS Answers provides a forum which can be filtered by tags to
make sure the relevant people can find and/or answer the question, and not
overload everyone with hundreds of posts.

Providing details about your system configuration, how you installed ROS and Gazebo as well as the exact commands you ran will be helpful for people answering your question.


Sorry and please excuse me
