Audacious segmentation fault


When I execute audacious, it fails to launch. If I do from the terminal, I get a segmentation fault error.
Code:
philippe@zeus:~$ audacious
Segmentation fault
I checked all the dependencies and they all seem to be satisfied. Anybody else getting this error?

Is this the default slackware package?
Did you try and reinstall it ?

Did you try the package at http://slackbuilds.org/result/?search=Audacious ?

You could try the above package and compile it with debug support to see what the problem is exactly ... audacious is not really that big a program , so you can easily recompile it .


If you are a noob see below :

you can reinstall by reinstalling the package in the slackware DVD. See the Packages.txt in the root dir of the DVD/CD. Search for audacious in that.

The link is a slackbuild package. Read the reame on the same site( look at the bottom of the page) on a nice tutorial on slackbuild packages.

You can edit the options by adding a enable debug. See the slackbuilds help for more.

did you change any program settings before this happened?

segmentation faults are sometimes caused by changes to the programs settings file.

i got a segmentation fault in my file manager, i had to delete the settings file, then the program worked.

I upgraded to current so I'm using (or trying to use) version 1.5.0. I tried reinstalling it and it didn't do anything. I'll look into those slackbuild scripts to see if they are built with improved compatibility.

did you do partial upgrade or full upgrade to -Current?

it's better to stick with one tree and not mixing it up, since -Current and -Stable are using different toolchain to compile packages

I did a full upgrade to -current. I needed the new radeonhd driver which wouldn't work on xorg 7.2 so I upgraded everything to -current to make sure I didn't miss anything.

this is also pretty good advice. Try deleting

rm ~/.local/share/audacious/ -rf

Deleting that folder didn't help. I guess the next thing to try is to make a brand new package myself. Is there anyway to see how the slackware developers put them together so I can try to build a slackware compatible package which will integrate well?

You might try running it in gdb or get an strace when running it - that will likely yield some clues about what's happening.

As for how the package is put together, see the slackware-version/source/ directory on any Slackware mirror.

Ok, I figured out the problem and fixed it. And I feel really stupid for not trying that out earlier. I simply ran slackpkg clean-system to remove obsolete packages and then about 10 or 12 packages were uninstalled. After I did that, audacious worked just fine. Apparently, a package from the 12.0 branch was conflicting with the 12.1 tree. Thanks for all the input though.

audacious segfault

I got the same thing in Debian.
Code:
mmap(NULL, 32832, PROT_READ|PROT_WRITE, MAP_PRIVATE|MAP_ANONYMOUS, -1, 0) = 0x7fbc34b4d000
--- SIGSEGV (Segmentation fault) @ 0 (0) ---
+++ killed by SIGSEGV +++
Process 4333 detached
I tried deleting the prefs folder and that didn't work.
So, I just reinstalled the old version.
Code:
dpkg --install  /var/cache/apt/archives/audacious_1.5.0-2_amd64.deb

Ah, so your upgrade wasn't finished yet
