#12768 closed Bug Report - Crash (Fixed)

Seg Fault running over port forwarding X11

Reported by: Peter Bennett <pgbennett@…> Owned by:
Priority: minor Milestone: unknown
Component: MythTV - General Version: 0.28.0
Severity: medium Keywords:
Cc: Ticket locked: no


If you logon to a system using ssh from another machine, then run mythfrontend or mythtv-setup, a seg fault occurs.

If you set paint engine to QT via the frontend on the remote machine the seg fault does not occur, and the window opens successfully, but that means you need access to a physical display on the remote machine to set the paint engine. If paint engine is set to Auto or OpenGL 1 or 2, it gets the seg fault.

It would be good if it could automatically fall back to QT in this case.

Details of the seg fault:

Core was generated by `mythfrontend'.
Program terminated with signal SIGSEGV, Segmentation fault.

Running remotely with option -O ThemePainter?=qt works. That can be used as a workaround for people needing remote access to setup.

    Prevent segfault when OpenGL is set on remote X11 session.
    OpenGL fails on a remote session. GUI will revert to QT painter
    when running on a remote X11 session.
