Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 168618
amarok randomly crashes
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:13 EST
Description of problem:
Long running amarok process dumps core after deleting playlist and re-adding
with another playlist. Must run "dynamic mode".
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
[jeff@kubik ~]$ rpm -q amarok
Steps to Reproduce:
[DISCLAIMER: Crashes are random, I cannot guarantee this will work.]
1. Set dynamic mode to enabled.
2. Inject new playlist.
3. Listen to a couple of songs.
5. Let Amarok run all night without doing a thing.
6. Wake up.
7. Clear list.
8. Add new playlist.

I'm having a hard time reproducing this. I have the same setup, Amarok from
extras, and KDE from kde-redhat.
Which engine are you using ? Did you install the amarok-debuginfo rpm ?
This was fixed in Amarok 1.3.7. I've trivially adapted the spec for Amarok 1.3.7
(and I'm running it right now).
Please note that taglib will have to be rebuilt as well, since it's built with
an old gcc.

Amarok 1.3.7 spec
Here's the spec I've used to build Amarok 1.3.7 RPM.
Amarok in Extras is already at version 1.3.7 :
Do you still experience this problem ?
Amarok is still at 1.3.6 in devel. Is this for a reason? (My note about taglib
needing rebuild too refers to devel)
Amarok will be upgraded to 1.4-beta in devel because rawhide is dropping
gstreamer 0.8 and only version 1.4 supports gst 0.10. I'll do this in the next days.
I'm closing this bug, feel free to reopen if version 1.3.8 still crashes randomly.
