Hmm, how very peculiar... Well, I get a seg fault every time now with
Machine is gentoo, with current packages. Kernel is 2.6.5-mm (and
previously it was 2.6.4-mm2 ish - I updated just to see if there was a
kernel issue). Machine is a P4 2.8. I just recompiled glibc with nptl
to see if that helps, and now it segfaults more frequently, previously
it would sometimes just die with no segfault message...
Actually I don't get any segfault when it plays back in the preview
window, which is peculiar. I wonder if it is specific to the output
layer in use? Are you using the Xvmc stuff by any chance?
Actually, the only other thing I haven't thought about is I have the
alsa stuff compiled in. It's not in use, so very unlikely to be an
issue. Also the app is compiled with debug settings.
Hmm, can gdb do a line by line output trace to a file so that I can at
least see the last few lines that were executed?
