#10386 closed Bug Report - General (fixed)

Segfault When Starting FE With --jumppoint "Live TV"

Reported by: Bill Meek <keemllib@…> Owned by: Jim Stichnoth
Priority: minor Milestone: 0.25
Component: MythTV - General Version: Master Head
Severity: medium Keywords:
Cc: Ticket locked: no


Submitted on behalf of warped from the #mythtv-user's list. His failure was on a diskless client and wasn't easily able to get a backtrace. In my two tests, both dropped core with the same one line backtrace (the core file was 24MB.

warped is currently running on: a3d9891 and believes the failures to have started with: 307dac8776.

Duplicated with:

ulimit -c unlimited
mythfrontend --jumppoint "Live TV" --quiet \
    --nodblog -v general --loglevel debug --logpath /var/log/mythtv

Hi, FYI Bisecting code shows that issue is caused by 307dac8776. Reverting this commit gives no segfaults.

Refs #10386. Don't sent EXIT_TO_MAIN event to Live TV jump point.

While 7e6f5fa66 fixes a segfault, that section of code shouldn't have been executed -- it's not a good idea to dispatch an EXIT_TO_MAIN event right before starting playback. Therefore, don't dispatch the event if the jump point starts from the main menu.
