Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 241661
Rhythmbox crashes immediately after start (FC5)
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:12:05 EST
Description of problem:
Rhythmbox crashes immediately after start on Fedora Core 5
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start Rhythmbox (FC5 must be up to date)
2. Watch it crash
I realize that FC5 is near its end of life, but it would be nice to leave a
working Rhythmbox in the repositories.
I'll need a backtrace of the crash though. See
http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/StackTraces for details on how to gather it.
*** Bug 241748 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=241748#c1 contains a
backtrace but there's no gtk+ or glib debuginfo installed, so the deeper frames
aren't useful for debugging.

bt with glib/gtk
I'm busy with work but will try to make a backtrace on FC5 as soon as possible.
I realized that when I launch from a terminal I get
RhythmDB-ERROR **: file rhythmdb-tree.c: line 247 (rhythmdb_tree_parser_start_el
ement): should not be reached
when Rhythmbox dies. I then deleted ~/.gnome2/rhythmbox and
~/.gconf/apps/rhythmbox and after that, Rhythmbox started normally. I have been
using the same home directory (on NFS) on a F7 test system and sometimes on FC5,
so the newer Rhythmboxes had apparently written something in the library or in
the config that 0.9.4.1 did not like. Now I can't reproduce the abort if I start
with no music library and no config.
So, this is probably NOTABUG and unrelated to whatever is going on in F8 /
Yeah, it doesn't like the libraries from newer versions. Closing then.
