Single Status Update
which flavour and version of linux are you using ? And do you remember which libraries were causing problems ?
I use the pc i have ksp installed on for a little naive c++ programming (learning vulkan :-)), but i am not a programmer.
I must say that the past versions of ksp always have been an unstable mess causing kernel intervention sooner or later. And there hasn't been any new functionality since 0.90. I would expect a well behaved program to certainly handle messages related to possible timing problems etc.

No dependency problems on my pc, they would have jumped in my eyes :-)
Yeah, don't downgrade to versions from before your os' version. Only if you are sure that you can really keep them apart from the newer stuff, and especially with a system like Ubuntu one can never be sure what dependencies hide behind the scenes :-)
GCC 6.3 and kernel 4.8 come with debian 9, so no version problem there on my side. Funnily enough ksp runs on my notebook with debian 9 but that has only an i3 and 4gb ram. The poor thing starts to sweat heavily.
The pc i am on now has an i7 4700k with 3500ghz, 16gb and a gtx660 graphics card, so a reasonable pc from 4 years ago. That thing quits when ksp runs. I have another newer one here with an i7 6700k, 16gb and a gtx970. Tomorrow i'll try it on that one ...
