[solved] vlc seg fault after last update

Just updated to latest and now get a seg fault.

[family@FedoraServer ~]$ vlc
VLC media player 1.1.13 The Luggage (revision exported)
Segmentation fault (core dumped)
[family@FedoraServer ~]$

Any ideas?


Hmmm same with Movie Player now and xine....

Dragon Player seems to run.

Re: vlc seg fault after last update

Don't know. I also got the update to vlc and mplayer, mencoder, etc... and don't seem to be having issues with them here.

When I try running vlc like you did above here is what I get:

Code:
[Me@tower20 ~]$ vlc
VLC media player 1.1.13 The Luggage (revision exported)
Blocked: call to unsetenv("DBUS_ACTIVATION_ADDRESS")
Blocked: call to unsetenv("DBUS_ACTIVATION_BUS_TYPE")
[0x77a120] main libvlc: Running vlc with the default interface. Use 'cvlc' to use vlc without interface.
Blocked: call to setlocale(6, "")
Blocked: call to setlocale(6, "")

(process:6939): Gtk-WARNING **: Locale not supported by C library.
	Using the fallback 'C' locale.
Blocked: call to setenv("CUR_WIDTH", "0", 1)
Blocked: call to setenv("CUR_WIDTH", "0", 1)
Blocked: call to setenv("CUR_WIDTH", "0", 1)
Blocked: call to setenv("CUR_WIDTH", "0", 1)
Blocked: call to setenv("CUR_WIDTH", "0", 1)
Don't know what all of those blocked calls mean, but possibly it could be what's causing your issues?

I go just about the same response as you. Seeing this topic I remember the update and that I hadn't tried it since, but it works perfectly.

Re: vlc seg fault after last update

VLC and xine segfault for me also after recent updates. Also 32-bit

Anyone else? Any solutions? Tried downgrading but didn't find the guilty party.

Re: vlc seg fault after last update

Mine just 'magically' came back recently ... a couple of days ago in fact! Go figure.... Everything is back working again ... until next time . Not on the newest kernel yet though ... fingers crossed on reboot sometime this week.

Never heard of the prelink command until now ... Had to go look that one up! Thanks for tip for next time!
