Note: Requires the libgnome-keyring package to be installed, which is not included by default in Fedora KDE. (It can be added without pulling in unnecessary dependencies, however.)

@FrankWang1991 Just forget that part, and open it in a text editor like Nano
sudo nano /usr/share/applications/gitkraken.desktop

Paste the content with CTRL+Shift+V, ensuring that each entry is on it's own line. Remove the EOL line, and anything above [Desktop Entry]. CTRL+O > Enter/Return > CTRL+X.

It worked nice, but no more again, now ( after move SO to Fedora release 28 ? ) restart by itself again and again:

I am seeing the same problem as @ctrl-alt-d with the restart loop. Already have the libcurl-gnutls.so.4 symlink in place.

If it helps track it down, I can work on a repo offline just fine - but if I reconnect and then attempt a fetch, the loop starts again.

You can run this script DIRECTLY without needing to download and save it:

bash <(curl -s https://gist.githubusercontent.com/aelkz/17528d2f6a5db73185c7dfbd28e49d18/raw/9fd4cc15d022e26abd80daf30a492c7ec38e0721/%255BFEDORA%255D%2520gitkraken)

as much a I found is that this reboot problem happen only with git repos which use SSH. With HTTP repos everything works fine. As much as I could see it that the system crashes happen because of OpenSSL. IMHO it could be, because of a new version of OpenSSL.

Hey guys! I work on the GitKraken team and we pushed out a release on October 12th that should resolve the crashing issue for repos that have SSH remotes.

On https://www.gitkraken.com/download, you will notice there are now 2 builds of GitKraken for Linux. You will want the tar.gz build for Ubuntu 18.04+.

@aelkz, can we update this line to be wget https://release.gitkraken.com/linux/gitkraken-amd64-18.04.tar.gz. Also any mention of gitkraken-amd64.tar.gz should be updated to gitkraken-amd64-18.04.tar.gz

Edit: Actually I'm on Fedora 25
Hey Manny, I'm on Fedora 26, I just updated to the newest version of GitKraken (4.0.6), and I changed the download URL in this script to what you had suggested, but now GitKraken no longer launches. If I try to launch it from the command line, I get the following error:

Since you are on an older build of Fedora can you try the Ubuntu 14.04+ .tar.gz build?

Please follow @MannyGrill's instructions if you are using Fedora 27, 28 or Ubuntu 18.04+

Hey guys! I work on the GitKraken team and we pushed out a release on October 12th that should resolve the crashing issue for repos that have SSH remotes.

On https://www.gitkraken.com/download, you will notice there are now 2 builds of GitKraken for Linux. You will want the tar.gz build for Ubuntu 18.04+.

@aelkz, can we update this line to be wget https://release.gitkraken.com/linux/gitkraken-amd64-18.04.tar.gz. Also any mention of gitkraken-amd64.tar.gz should be updated to gitkraken-amd64-18.04.tar.gz

Please use the above instructions if you are using newer OS with newer openssl lib versions. If the above still does not work and you are getting the error that @TonyArra is getting. Please try these two commands as they may symlink the libraries for GitKraken to work:

sudo ln -s /usr/lib64/libcrypto.so.10 /usr/lib64/libcrypto.so.1.0.0
sudo ln -s /usr/lib64/libssl.so.10 /usr/lib64/libssl.so.1.0.0

@MannyGrill's instructions worked for me on Fedora 28.

@MannyGrill I'm on RHEL 7, so maybe I'm off topic, in which case please tell me so! I also get the libcrypto error (previous versions of gitkraken were working fine). I tried both the tar.gz ubuntu 14 and ubuntu 18 version without luck.

Any more ideas ? Thanks for you help!

MannyGrill commented Nov 5, 2018

@mraspaud, we are hopefully fixing this in v4.1.0 (I think CentOS 7 is having the same issue).

Rather than have 4 different builds of Linux we will be reverting back to 2 versions (one .tar.gz and one .deb). I will post here once we release v4.1.0 and please share if you run in to the libcrypto error.

It is essential to install libgnome-keyring. Use:
sudo dnf install libgnome-keyring

And the symbolic link:
sudo ln -s /usr/lib64/libcurl.so.4 /opt/gitkraken/libcurl-gnutls.so.4

I have GitKraken running in Fedora 29.
