Plasma 5/Qt5 applications keep crashing

Registered Member
Hi everyone,
This problem may or may not be KDE specific.
With no particular reason, plasma 5 applications started to keep crashing today. KWin kept crashing, drkonqi kept crashing at the same time, so I couldn't get a backtrace of the crash. Plasmashell crashed occasionally. I could sometimes calm them down by killing and launching KWin from the console. Then I had to be careful not to launch any KF5 based applications or it would start all over again. So I decided to just rename all config files and try again. Now at least the session starts with a few crashes, but by itself. Systemsettings only crashes on exit. Yakuake works again, but Konsole crashes. Kinfocenter crashes. Otter crashes, but it used to crash quite often anyway. Just normally not on startup. Anything that isn't Qt5 based seems to work fine, but even when I was running emerge a couple of reboots ago it would quit saying "interrupted".
Although drkonqi still crashes most of the time, I managed to get a backtrace of systemsettings crashing:
Code: Select all
Application: System Settings (systemsettings), signal: Segmentation fault
Using host libthread_db library "/lib64/".

All I can think of is that I just re-emerged qtwidgets yesterday because of USE Flag changes.

edit: this is what I get when I run KDE-applications from the command line:
Code: Select all
KCrash: Application 'konsole' crashing...
KCrash: Attempting to start /usr/lib64/libexec/drkonqi from kdeinit

Otter just says "Segmentation fault"

edit2: If I start the applications as root they only crash on exit

edit3: It seems it's everything that's using qtwidgets5. plasmashell runs fine until I right-click somewhere and hover the appearing menu, kwin the same.

edit4: so I just moved ALL my user configuration and then applications just crashed on exit, just like they do when run as root. The real problem seems to be somewhere else.

here's another backtrace. The crash of the first backtrace occured on exit, just after I moved my configuration, this one is what happens right after starting applications.

Ok, this was the wrong place to look for an answer. It turns out, it was distribution specific:
