Segmentation fault on Yoper Linux

Reported by: Pikidalto Owned by: lschiere
Milestone: Component: unclassified
Version: 2.4.3 Keywords:


I compiled Pidgin 2.4.3 on Yoper Linux. When I first tried to run it, it did not seem to load, so I tried to load it from a terminal and noticed it crashing with a Segmentation Fault. Attatched is the output of a 'pidgin -d' and a 'gdb pidgin'.

It looks like it is crashing when initializing the sound stuff.

There are no debug symbols in your backtrace, which renders it mostly useless - the only useful thing to note is that it is crashing in liboil. Did you compile that too?

Did you use custom CFLAGS or something to build pidgin? Are you using a patched version?

I did not compile liboil or use a custom CFLAGS to compile. I can note, however, that an updated liboil (added either on the 21st or 22nd of July, 2008 to the Yoper repositories) seems to have fixed the problem, which leads me to think that it was a corrupt liboil build in the Yoper repositories than an actual problem with Pidgin itself.

Aha, that explains it.
