Description of problem:
After a kernelupdate to kernel-2.6.6-1.435 tvtime crashes always with
the following output:

Running tvtime 0.9.12.
Reading configuration from /etc/tvtime/tvtime.xml
Reading configuration from /home/user/.tvtime/tvtime.xml
videoinput: Can't read frame. Error was: Input/output error (0).
videoinput: Can't read frame. Error was: Input/output error (0).
videoinput: Can't read frame. Error was: Input/output error (0).
Segmentation fault

it works with kernel-2.6.6-1.435.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
tvtime-0.9.12-5 kernel-2.6.6-1.435

should be kernel-2.6.5-1.358
Comment 2 Billy Biggs 2004-06-22 08:49:10 EDT
Why was this closed and not forwarded upstream to me?

There is a known segfault in tvtime 0.9.12 that occurs if the first
few frames of video are all errors.  This can happen when some drivers
are in a bad state.  A workaround is sometimes to start tvtime on a
different input number.  I will try to post a 0.9.13 release that
fixes this problem, but even if I did you probably won't see anything
except a lot of errors from tvtime.

You should look at the output of dmesg and see if something is wrong
with the setup of your capture card driver.

I've opened up bug 129399 for the underlaying kernel bug.
