@anders: MMS is running very well without problems except this crash. If I try epg it works correct with a message as you have dscribed above.

@Andreas: Could you please explain a little bit how I should perform a make install. I have not compiled mms for myself. I am using the edgy package via apt-get.

Regards, Thomas

After you moved away options and playlist, perform a #dpkg -r mms-standard and then install it again. The missing files will be created again.

if this is not the problem, you have two ways of tracking the bug:
1) start mms as follow and send the output to Anders

Code: Select all

#strace -o mms.out mms
or 2) start mms with

Code: Select all

#gdb mms
and type after the crash bt into your terminal to obtain a backtrace. Post the output here.

Regards,
Andreas

Re-installation doesn´t work. Results in the same scenario.

I have send the strace output to Anders. Backtrace with gdb you find above in this thread.

It seams to be a nasty one.
I know, it's a big favour, but would you mind to download and compile mms with

Code: Select all

./configure --enable-debug ... <other switches>
and type bt again? But wait first of all, until Anders see this all.

Sorry, thanks anyway,
Regards,
Andreas

I looked at the strace (thanks) but sadly it doesn't reveal anything interesting.

Why are the debs even stripped/compiled without debug? I guess this a question to Roman.

What is the contents of /var/lib/mms/options?

Because I thought 1.0.8.2 is stable ;)

You can easily compile your own deb with debug enabled!

Add this line to sources.list:

Code: Select all

deb http://www.prodeia.de/mms/edgy source/

do

Code: Select all

apt-get source mms-your-flavour

Code: Select all

apt-get build-deb mms-your-flavour

and change this line in upstream/debian/rules

Code: Select all

CONFIGURE_COMMON := --prefix=/usr --enable-lirc --enable-eject-tray

to

Code: Select all

CONFIGURE_COMMON := --prefix=/usr --enable-lirc --enable-eject-tray --enable-debug


after that you can compile and build the debs with

Code: Select all

dpkg-buildpackage -uc -us -rfakeroot

in upstream dir.

The debs are placed in upstream/../ then and can be installed with

Code: Select all

dpkg -i mms-flavour*.deb


But I'll see and check why that happens, too!

Ok ... I figured out that it's the 'play-now-warning'!

Here's my bt:
X Error of failed request: BadValue (integer parameter out of range for operation)
Major opcode of failed request: 148 (MIT-SHM)
Minor opcode of failed request: 3 (X_ShmPutImage)
Value in failed request: 0xffe3
Serial number of failed request: 259
Current serial number in output stream: 260
[Thread -1255408736 (zombie) exited]
[Thread -1221997664 (zombie) exited]

Program exited with code 01.
(gdb) bt
No stack.
:P

Maybe it's the longer delay added in one of the last patches? I remember that I haven't tested it after my ask for the longer displaying of the warning ...

Is this also using the 1.0.8.2 deb? And what if you try latest from bzr?

Thanks!

Yes of course it does :P

But this does not solve the problem itself ...

Anyway, glad you have it running!

Roman helped me find the bug it will be fixed in the next version.

Thanks a lot for the report!
