xmms segfault on startup
Last modified: 2014-03-16 22:42:10 EDT
Description of problem:
xmms segfaults very early on in the startup process on a vanilla 1.90
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. try to start 'xmms' from the command line
2. a nice friendly localized message saying "Segmentation fault, file
a bug in http://bugs.xmms.org"
gdb backtrace is very short:
Program received signal SIGSEGV, Segmentation fault.

I just noted that to trigger this the $HOME/.xmms folder needs to be
missing. When I restored my old $HOME the problem went away. To
trigger it again i needed to rename my .xmms directory.
Some shotgun recompiling shows that if i exclude the arts
(xmms-1.2.8-arts.patch) patch from the rpm this fixes the segfault.
Since I don't use arts I won't try to debug this any further :)
