Crash log

KDE crash reporter said that this crash report information is useful so I'm reporting it. I didn't specifically notice where exactly the crash occured - probably somewhere in background but I do have to mention that `vlc` doesn't want to start on double clicking media and lacks thumbnails in status bar media control widget - could be related.

1. Unknown - background crash

I'm encountering this issue as well it would seem.

It seems to occur when using Dolphin and viewing a folder that contains images.
The cached thumbnails continue to be shown, but new image files do not have their thumbnails generated (thus the crash I would presume).
Process 2711078 (thumbnail.so) of user 1000 dumped core.

I've actually had this happen over the past few months I'd guess (looking at coredumpctl).

I'm not sure whether this issue should be brought up in "frameworks-kinit" (yes, the dump says "kinit5") or "frameworks-kio" since "/usr/lib/qt/plugins/kf5/kio/thumbnail.so" belongs to the package "kio-extras".

If this bug is different, do let me know and I'll create a new report.
Comment 2 Avamander 2019-11-26 04:36:20 UTC

I think my crash is related to some other component than your crash if you look at the attacked log file (thumbnail.so vs. libtag.so/audiothumbnail.so).

I'll just wait for input from a dev.
I'd hate to create another bug and just have them mark it as duplicate of this.

You noted the audio thumbnail, but you'll see in the stack, the reference to "kio/thumbnail.so".
This along with kinit5 is the commonality between our crashes.

I am curious *IF* you are experiencing this issue at the *current moment*, and you open your filesystem browser (dolphin?), go to a folder with images (with image thumnail view) and save a new image to that folder, does the thumbnail preview show for that newly saved image? You could just save any image from the internet as a test.

You may want to have "$ journalctl -f" running in a terminal at the same time to look for a crash in real time.
Comment 4 Christoph Feck 2019-11-26 09:49:56 UTC
Crash is in TagLib::MP4::Tag::itemMap() from libtag. Since the audiothumbnailer hasn't seen a commit since 2017, this is likely a regression in libtag. Can you isolate the file that causes the crash?
Comment 5 Avamander 2019-11-26 12:50:18 UTC
Unfortunately I have basically thousands of audio files in the few folders that could be the culprits. Is there a way to invoke libtag used by on a file from command line? I'd run it on every audio file I have if it is.
Comment 6 eternal 2020-10-17 23:58:00 UTC
kdeinit5 everytime crash when scroll files in folder with one .djvu file.

SOLUTION (dirty):
Disable preview DjVu files in Dolphin (Configure Dolphin>General>Previews)

Application: kdeinit5 (kdeinit5), signal: Segmentation fault
Using host libthread_db library "/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libthread_db.so.1".
