gmplayer prevents unmount of partition


I am running Slackware 64 Current (as of November 28th).

I have sometimes been experiencing, on boot-up, messages about recovering the journal. At first I feared this was related to a recent kernel problem.

One time when I was about to reboot, after exiting from xorg but before typing "reboot," I attempted to manually unmount the home partition, was informed that the device was busy. I did a "ps -e" and saw that, despite now being in the console, there was a gmplayer process. After kill -9 ing that process, I was able to umount the home partition.

Today I had the same thing happen, except there were *multiple* gmplayer processes.

This is rather odd, since after each video is played, I close gmplayer. There should be no gmplayer processes afterwards.

What is is about gmplayer in this version of Slackware that would be causing this?

p.s. Unsure if relevant or not, but this is Slackware without pulse audio.

I'd be curious to know how you built and installed this software whose last release is nearly 12 years old AFAIK...

gmplayer is included with the mplayer source and is enabled by passing --enable-gui to the ./configure (which Pat has done with his MPlayer.SlackBuild).

@OP, unless you are dead-set on using gmplayer, I would recommend switching to a different gui. From my understanding, gmplayer is not really developed much by the mplayer devs and has a lot of bugs that are mostly ignored. Front-ends for mplayer like smplayer are much better ways to play your videos and they have a lot more features. If you're not interested in smplayer, there are other frontends you can use. Search for mplayer on SBo for an idea of some that are available.

I should have at least tried the gmplayer command... Thanks for the heads-up!

When I put Slackware in, mplayer & gmplayer came with it.

So I performed a fresh install of Slackware 64 current as of November 14th. I am still using the version of mplayer that comes with slackware. Looks like the mplayer is from October.

I have the same problem as before. I had the idea of running gmplayer from the command line in order to gather more information. It turns out that, even though I click to close the gmplayer windows, gmplayer itself keeps running.

Output:

Exiting... (Quit)

MPlayer interrupted by signal 6 in module: exit_player
- MPlayer crashed. This shouldn't happen.
  It can be a bug in the MPlayer code _or_ in your drivers _or_ in your
  gcc version. If you think it's MPlayer's fault, please read
  DOCS/HTML/en/bugreports.html and follow the instructions there. We can't and
  won't help unless you provide this information when reporting a possible bug.
Note at the end of the output, there is no prompt. I have to ^c, every time.

At this point, I am unsure what is going on, save that gmplayer crashes in such a way that it keeps running.

Has anyone else had gmplayer behave this way?
