Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 137506
gst-launch-0.8 segfaults on x86_64 with artsdsnk
Last modified: 2015-04-12 19:17:18 EDT
Description of problem:
This problem is seen by choosing the Multimedia Systems Selector from
the Hat->Preferences->More Preferences menu. If I change Audio Default
sink from ALSA to Artsd and press test I get a segfault message in
/var/log/messages and the Gstreamer Preferences window goes away.
kernel: gstreamer-prope: segfault at 0000000000002198 rip
0000002a99b646ce rsp 0000007fbfffd7c0 error 6 is the message.
If I run gstreamer-properties from a terminal as my user and click
test I get the segfault. If I run the same command under a root
terminal the error dialog appears.
Running the command: gst-launch-0.8 sinesrc ! spider ! artsdsink
as root results in an error. Running it as a user results in a segfault.
See below for environment.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. run gst-launch-0.8 sinesrc ! spider ! artsdsink under a users terminal.
crash and segfault
Failed to construct test pipeline for 'Artsd - ART Sound Daemon' error
This appears to be x86_64 only. Additionally I have an unsupported
sound card so I have no sound. Multimedia audio controller: Intel
Corp. 82801EB/ER (ICH5/ICH5R) AC'97 Audio Controller (rev 02). The box
is an EM64T. The way this issue was found would be close to the steps
a not so savy user would take trying to get sound working on the box IMO.

This may not be as useful because x86_64 debuginfo packages do not seem to
We don't ship an arts plugin any more, closing.
