Description Sean Bruno 2005-04-03 00:21:18 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.6) Gecko/20050328 Firefox/1.0.2 Fedora/1.0.2-3

Description of problem:
On login, or attempt to start the volume control applet you receive an error window with the following information:

Registry is not present or it is corrupted, please update it by running gst-register

I attempted to run gst-register and recieved the following output:

[sean@localhost ~]$ /usr/bin/gst-register
Trying to load global_registry ...
Error loading global_registry
Added path   /usr/lib/gstreamer-0.8 to user_registry
Rebuilding user_registry (/home/sean/.gstreamer-0.8/registry-i386.xml) ...
Added plugin stereo with 1 feature.
...  more stuff
Added plugin gstbasicomegascheduler with 1 feature.
Added plugin vbidec with 1 feature.
/usr/bin/gst-register: line 3:  4296 Segmentation fault      $x

Running the gst-register binary in /usr/libexec/gst-register-i386-0.8
yeilds the same output, but attaching GDB to it is useless as all debug symbols have been stripped.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.  Attempt to start the volume control applet.


Actual Results:  Error window popped up

Expected Results:  Volume control applet should have started and appeared in notification area.

Additional info:

I have two audio devices in my machine:

USB Headset:
Bus 003 Device 002: ID 047f:0ca1 Plantronics, Inc.

Onboard PCI:
00:1f.5 Multimedia audio controller: Intel Corporation 82801DB/DBL/DBM (ICH4/ICH4-L/ICH4-M) AC'97 Audio Controller (rev 01)

At the suggestion of one of the folks on the fedora-test list, I installed the
debuginfo RPM for gstreamer.  I got some more information, but not much:

Added plugin vbidec with 1 feature.

Program received signal SIGSEGV, Segmentation fault.

Don't know if this helps, but I will try to keep poking at it.

Nicely done to whomever traced this bug out.  I updated to rawhide and the core
dump is no longer occuring.  I am still seeing an error window pop-up thought
when I attempt to start the volume control applet.  Window contents:

No volume control elements and/or devices found

Comment 3 Sean Bruno 2005-04-07 18:15:51 EDT
Looks like this issue is now resolved.  I rebooted after updating today(didn't
reboot yesterday), and I have a sound volume applet again.  Nice work!
Comment 4 Sean Bruno 2005-04-07 18:16:19 EDT
I'll let u close this one.
Comment 5 John (J5) Palmieri 2005-04-14 16:35:33 EDT
Not really fixed.  I still see it happening in test2.  I'll need to debug further 
Comment 6 Sean Bruno 2005-04-15 19:37:18 EDT
Uh, I don't see this happening on my machine.  I have a volume applet and all
looks normal.
Comment 7 John (J5) Palmieri 2005-04-16 13:30:59 EDT
Actually it happens when I created a new account.  My main account works fine. 
I think it is somewhat random which will make it harder to debug.
Comment 8 Sean Bruno 2005-05-23 14:33:27 EDT
This issue seems to have gone away.  I am marking it as NOTABUG.
Comment 9 Shawn N 2005-06-23 02:53:49 EDT
I am seeing the same issue in FC4 final.  Volume control applet will not start
and  running gst-register segfaults.  A complete removeal of the gstreamer rpms
and reinstall yeilds  the same result.
Comment 10 Shawn N 2005-06-23 03:06:00 EDT
Quick follow up.  In my case it appears that removing libgstglimagesink.so fixes
the segfault.
Comment 11 Sean Bruno 2005-06-23 11:51:14 EDT
This is NOT happening to my machines with FC4 final.  You may have something
else going on.  As this issue is closed(for me at least), you may have better
luck opening a new report.  List ur hardware in the ticket also.
