Description Javier Martínez Ortiz 2011-12-02 13:05:58 UTC
Application: knotify4 (4.0)
KDE Platform Version: 4.7.2 (4.7.2) "release 5"
Qt Version: 4.7.4
Operating System: Linux 3.1.0-1.2-desktop x86_64
Distribution: "openSUSE 12.1 (x86_64)"

-- Information about the crash:
- What I was doing when the application crashed:

KNotify crashed on desktop startup. As an additional behavior, Amarok and kcmshell4 crashed too. Reading the traceback info, something is wrong with vlc library. I tried to change the phonon backend to gstreamer, but the control module couldn't be loaded. This error occurred after a distro update on OpenSUSE 12.1 (KDE:Factory repo).

-- Backtrace:
Application: KNotify (knotify4), signal: Segmentation fault

Could you please install the -debuginfo packages for Phonon and phonon-backend-vlc? Your backtrace is not very useful without. Please see also http://techbase.kde.org/Development/Tutorials/Debugging/How_to_create_useful_crash_reports

Myriam: i "solved" the issue by uninstalling phonon-backend-vlc. There's no problem after that. I guessed that the traceback was lack of information, but i couldn't to install the -debuginfo packages, even with the debug repo active. I'll try to reproduce the bug, reinstalling the packages to gather some more info.

New crash information added by DrKonqi

systemsettings (1.0) on KDE Platform 4.7.2 (4.7.2) "release 5" using Qt 4.7.4

- What I was doing when the application crashed:

This is additional information about the bug 288057. Is the better i could get, because DrKonqui asked me some -debuginfo that is unavailable from OpenSUSE 12.1 debug repos. The list of applications in this situation is the following:


I hope this information will be useful to correct the bug.

Comment 4 Myriam Schweingruber 2011-12-13 22:39:11 UTC
Please have a look here for the -debuginfo package for the backend: 
Comment 5 Harald Sitter 2012-02-12 15:20:48 UTC
That is very much a VLC bug. Best guess from the backtrace is that the plugin versions do not match the VLC version, thus leading to a crash when allocating memory for the plugin.
