Description Émeric Maschino 2006-05-22 17:57:15 EDT
Description of problem:

gnome-system-log and totem are both crashing due to something wrong at line 2717
in gtype.c. Here's the gdb output for gnome-system-log:

Program received signal SIGSEGV, Segmentation fault.
[Switching to Thread 2305843009256628736 (LWP 23154)]
0x2000000001477750 in IA__g_type_check_instance_cast (
    type_instance=0x60000000000cc210, iface_type=816624) at gtype.c:2717
2717      if (/* support_inheritance && */

And here's the gdb output for totem:

Program received signal SIGSEGV, Segmentation fault.
[Switching to Thread 2305843009260121520 (LWP 23086)]
0x200000000136a651 in IA__g_type_check_instance_is_a (type_instance=Variable
"type_instance" is not available.
    at gtype.c:2717
2717      if (/* support_inheritance && */

This issue is there since, at least January 2006, but I initially thought it was
different issues for gnome-system-log and totem. Hence the very late bug report
against the right (I think) component. Sorry!

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

Current Rawhide glib-1.2.10-18.2.2

How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start totem or gnome-system-log
Actual results:

Program crashes with a SIGSEGV signal

Expected results:

Program should work fine

gnome-system-log (from gnome-utils-2.15.3-1) is now working fine. totem is still
crashing however for the same reason. Is this really a glib issue or a totem issue?
Comment 2 Émeric Maschino 2006-07-22 16:03:07 EDT
This was indeed a gstreamer issue. Please see bug #179654 for details. This one
can now be safely closed ;-)
