[mythtv] mythgame segmentation fault when mythgame binary is defined
Fri, 4 Jan 1980 03:35:04 -0500
I was wondering if anybody has experienced this..
the problem: mythgame seg. faults when executed from command line (and presumably when executed from mythfrontend though there is nothing said in that case) when *and only when* the myth game binary is defined properly.. I've heard some things about this in relation to scripts, however the xmame binary is not a script.. I don't really know, but it seems as though the problem has something to do with my libc.. upgrading to a higher version (i.e., 2.3) seems a nonoption, as it would require me to uninstall many, many packages..
Included below is a backtrace and an ls -l of my libc..
