Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 449255
totem fails to play dvgrab output; totem 2.18.3-1.fc7 plays the same file
Last modified: 2009-07-14 13:31:35 EDT
Description of problem:
totem 2.23.2-2.fc9 gets a BadAlloc from X trying to play a file captured with
dvgrab; totem 2.18.3-1.fc7 can play the same file with no trouble.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Run totem on attached testcase
crashes with BadAlloc from X.
Created attachment 307297 [details]
Sample dvgrab output which old totem plays and new one cannot
It works here - What X driver and totem backend are you using?
How would I determine which totem back end I'm using? The About box says it's
using gstreamer 0.10.19 - does that answer the question?
When I run "totem --sync" and then load the file, it gets as far as switching
the message in the status bar in the lower left to "Playing" and then falls over
The program 'totem' received an X Window System error.
This probably reflects a bug in the program.
The error was 'BadAlloc (insufficient resources for operation)'.
(Details: serial 61 error_code 11 request_code 140 minor_code 19)
(Note to programmers: normally, X errors are reported asynchronously;
that is, you will receive the error a while after causing it.
To debug your program, run it with the --sync command line
option to change this behavior. You can then get a meaningful
backtrace from your debugger if you break on the gdk_x_error() function.)
This means that Xv doesn't enough space to show the video.
Make sure that compositing managers (such as compiz) are disabled. If it still
doesn't work, pipe the output of dvgrab to a file, and use totem-video-indexer
or the nautilus property window to see the dimensions of the video.
I'm playing it from a file already; a sample is attached to this bug. Here's
what totem-video-indexer says about it:
Nautilus concurs. Grepping ps output for compiz shows nothing. Next step?
Which video card are you using?

Anything more I can do to help here?
It's a problem with the video driver.
Thanks for the bug report. We have reviewed the information you have provided
above, and there is some additional information we require that will be helpful
in our diagnosis of this issue.
Please attach your X server config file (/etc/X11/xorg.conf) and X server log
file (/var/log/Xorg.*.log) to the bug report as individual uncompressed file
attachments using the bugzilla file attachment link below.
Could you please also try to run without any /etc/X11/xorg.conf whatsoever and
let X11 autodetect your display and video card? Attach to this bug
/var/log/Xorg.0.log from this attempt as well, please.
We will review this issue again once you've had a chance to attach this information.
Thanks in advance.
This happens to be the same machine for which I reported bug 449254, so the
attachments there apply here. Would you like me to attach them here as well?
No, that's OK.
attachment 308187 [details] is /etc/X11/xorg.conf
attachment 308188 [details] is /var/log/Xorg.0.log while using it
attachment 308189 [details] is /var/log/Xorg.0.log without any config file
This message is a reminder that Fedora 9 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 9. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora
'version' of '9'.
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 9's end of life.
Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 9 is end of life. If you
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it
against a later version of Fedora please change the 'version' of this
bug to the applicable version. If you are unable to change the version,
please add a comment here and someone will do it for you.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
The process we are following is described here:
Fedora 9 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2009-07-10. Fedora 9 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.
If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version.
Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
