Description of problem:
Recently all of sudden on login to Gnome I started getting messages of
"eggcups can't start" and "gnome-volume-manager" can't start. I don't
know if these are related, but the first time I saw these error I got
a message error about gnome-volume-control applet crashing. Then it
asked me if I wanted to try reloading the applet, I said yes but I had
no luck. Then I tried to load gnome-volume-manager from a terminal, it
give me the following message when I try to load it:


ERROR: Caught a segmentation fault while loading plugin file:

Please either:
- remove it and restart.
- run with --gst-disable-segtrap and debug.

This is bizzare, and I'm sure why this is happening. Help!

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Not sure what caused the crashing in the first place, used to work fine

Try running prelink on it:

prelink /usr/lib/gstreamer-0.8/libgstalsa.so
(as root)
Comment 2 Corey T. 2004-11-23 00:26:00 EST
I ran prelink as you suggested and not gnome-volume-control works
properly. Do I have to do this each time I restart or should it be
okay now? Would this be a result of installing packages like
rhythmbox-xine and totem-xine from freshrpms? Cause this seemed to
have started happening after I installed those packages. I also
upgraded the kernel around that time so maybe that caused some things
to be unlinked (?). Weird. Thanks for the fix!
Comment 3 Corey T. 2004-11-23 00:27:11 EST
Sorry, I meant gnome-volume control works properly now (not not as I
said above).
Comment 4 Colin Walters 2004-11-23 00:32:46 EST
It's a prelink bug, hopefully an update will come out soon.
