I'm having the same seemingly random segfaults. They just started today. I'm running Ubuntu 8.04 64 bit. I've disabled all plugins (except history). I will try to upload a backtrace from a debug build of pidgin today. Current backtrace is above, though probably unhelpful.

Was there a recent upgrade to any parts of gstreamer or dbus in Ubuntu?

I downloaded the debugging version and ran it with a -d flag. It gave me a little bit of info on what was happening.

ERROR: Caught a segmentation fault while loading plugin file:
/usr/lib/gstreamer-0.10/libgstautodetect.so

For now, I've just disabled audio (as I don't use audio at work anyways). Everything seems stable thus far.

if i disable all sounds, everything works fine... looks like gstreamer has been updated...

  • Resolution set to invalid
  • Status changed from new to closed

If there was a recent gstreamer update then file a bug with Ubuntu about it.
