I have upgraded Fedora from 28 to the latest 29 and Slack doesn't work anymore. It returns a
Segmentation fault (core dumped).
valgrind I obtained this output:
Process terminating with default action of signal 11 (SIGSEGV): dumping core Bad permissions for mapped region at address 0xDBF060 at 0xDBF060: ??? (in /usr/lib/slack/slack) by 0x7112071: node::http2::Http2Session::Callbacks::Callbacks(bool) (in /usr/lib/slack/libnode.so) by 0x7112134: ???

It seems the issue is inside an "outdated" version of
libnode.so. I just copied another version of
libnode.so from the latest
atom.rpm installation with:
sudo cp -v /usr/share/atom/libnode.so /usr/lib/slack/libnode.so
Like user Pierre Bellan already said, you can easily find other version of
libnode.so on your OS with:
sudo updatedb && locate libnode
I used the atom one because I was sure about a recent working update of the editor.
