I tried nuking the contents of my build_dir and the install directory, reran cmake and make install, still crashes.
gdb told me I needed debug-infos on 208 packages so I installed those. 

here's what I get from bt:

it's still telling me I need debug-infos on 87 more packages, so I'm installing those.
