Comment 2 Matthias Saou 2007-06-15 09:18:02 UTC
This rings a bell. It has already been reported a while ago, but IIRC it got
fixed in some external library which was causing the problem. I've searched
bugzilla for the relevant report(s), but since they are no longer filed against
torcs, and since I don't remember which library it was, I didn't find them... :-/

Hans : Do you happen to remember the issue and the fix? I think it was you who
tracked down the problem and fixed it already...

Still, I'm surprised to see a new report of this against F7.

Comment 3 Hans de Goede 2007-06-15 11:08:52 UTC
This is not the same problem, the last time torcs crashed when using openAL
sound, you can try disabling openAL as soundsystem though to see if openAL is
the problem again.

Comment 4 Markus Lindholm 2007-06-15 16:40:42 UTC
Tested to change the sound system and Torcs seg faults only if openAL is selected.

Comment 5 Matthias Saou 2007-06-15 16:47:25 UTC
Seems like the openal bug is back!
Could you please check what openal packages you have installed, just in case?
Who knows, maybe you have some lod-ish package from some 3rd party repository,
which doesn't contain the fix...

GRRR, this is bug 203336 al over again, which I indeed did write a patch for,
but that never got applied to the package in CVS?? (actually the bug is still
open) Please add comments to bug 203336 requesting for this to be fixed asap!
