Frontend crashes when changing channel

Reported by: martin@… Owned by:

Cc: Ticket locked: no


Since this morning, the frontend has been crashing when trying to change channel.

Since the problem started I've also updated to the latest Mythbuntu packages.

I seem to get two different stack traces, when run in gdb and when run outside gdb. One seems to indicate the NVidia driver, the other libmythavutil. Both will be attached.

The backtrace in the 'gdb' attachment isn't actually a gdb backtrace which contains a lot more information that the gcc backtrace you see there. It would normally create a backtrace when a segfault is encountered, but it can always be done manually by typing "thread apply all bt full" at the gcc console after mythfrontend has crashed.

Without the gdb backtrace we'd be fishing in the dark, and even with it there's no guarantee.
