TeamViewer Host 14 on CentOS Fails to Load

Howdy folks,

  I have been looking into using TeamViewer Host for a headless Linux server that can be started from inside a customer's firewall. The install appeared to go okay, but when I try to run it, it produces a segmentation fault and core dump, with startup info as follows (nothing is getting logged post-install):

[root@localhost ~]# teamviewer setup

terminate called after throwing an instance of 'boost::wrapexcept<boost::uuids::entropy_error>'
what(): getrandom
Aborted (core dumped)

I have seen a number of threads on this but no clear solution. We'd like to use TeamViewer commercially but it won't be plausible if we can't get it to load on our servers.

We are trying to run this from the commandline with no GUI which appears to be plausible, but I have yet to see a commandline invocation that loads properly. Would be willing to try older or different versions but we need this to run in CentOS 7. If anyone has found a solution to this, please advise. We need to figure out a solution ASAP and the ability to initiate a connection from customer sites without reconfiguring the firewalls each time is the main reason we're interested in TeamViewer as a solution.

I just wanted to note that TeamViewer Host 13 seems to be working. I was able to install and start it from a commandline, and connect with the windows client.

Same Problem here.

Teamviewer 13   running fine

 yum update teamviewer_14.3.4730.x86_64.rpm

then rebooted and ran teamviewer

teamviewer

Init...
CheckCPU: SSE2 support: yes
Checking setup...
Launching TeamViewer ...

yum remove teamviewer

yum install teamviewer_13.1.3026.x86_64.rpm

 

 

All works OK again under Version 13

Is there any clue in here?
