Description Victor Bogado 2006-08-14 19:04:51 UTC
Description of problem:
When I compile the test program I have attached the program gives me the
following output : 

ERROR: Caught a segmentation fault while loading plugin file:

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

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
I tryed this with both x86 and x86-64 plataforms with the latest gstreamer

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. compile the program 
2. run it
Actual results:
segfault in the /usr/lib/gstreamer-0.10/libgstgnomevfs.so plugin

Expected results:
a simple test with the videotestsrc being displayed in a window.

Additional info:
An interesting point is that if I change the name of the pipe variable it works
ok. My guess is that this package is using this name "pipe" so it conflicts with
my variable and this messes everything.

The pipe(3) function is provided by glibc, not gstreamer.

Comment 4 Jakub Jelinek 2006-12-11 21:10:55 UTC
Obviously you can't name your variables in a way which will preempt standard
library functions that are used by the application, even indirectly.
