mythtv-0.19_p9163-r1 backend crash

Reported by: anonymous Owned by: Isaac Richards
Priority: minor Milestone: unknown
Component: mythtv Version:
Severity: medium Keywords:
Cc: Ticket locked: no


Periodically (about once or twice a week), mythbackend 0.19 terminates. I see the following in /var/log/mythtv/mythbackend.log:

2006-06-09 20:00:34.837 Using runtime prefix = /usr 2006-06-09 20:00:34.927 New DB connection, total: 1 2006-06-09 20:00:34.964 Connected to database 'mythconverg' at host: localhost [mpeg @ 0xb75ea360]Parser not found for Codec Id: 94210 !

The crash happened at about 20:01. I restarted it at 13:24 the next day:

# /etc/init.d/mythbackend zap # /etc/init.d/mythbackend start

I am running Gentoo with mysql 4.0.35-r2, and mythtv-0.19_p9163-r1 compiled with +alsa +arts _dvd _lirc +oggvorbis +opengl

Any ideas what might be happening? Gentoo told me to report this bug upstream.

Need backtrace.

Thanks! I was wondering if it would be worth my while to put time into troubleshooting this and other issues for mythtv. Now I know better!

[I post this here, since the 'anonymous' poster doesn't give their name, or whether they are on any mythtv email lists......] Maybe I can help interpret Isaac's comment... "need backtrace" means: "Without a backtrace provided by the original poster, I am unable to diagnose this problem further, and until then I will set it as 'invalid' or 'closed' so that other developers know not to spend their time trying to look into it further." It also means: "Could the original poster please provide a backtrace." From the wiki: "Your best bet for getting help determining the cause of the problem is to download the myth source code and compile it yourself in debug mode, then run it with gdb, the GNU debugger. Only with a backtrace can the developers really help you if your setup is causing Myth to segfault." See:"

Thanks, sorry for being a jerk, I didn't realize bugs were closed/invalid when they just need more info, as a matter of policy as documented at that howto. I guess mythtv must get a lot of bugs to require such a policy. I had spent a lot of time searching for a solution before coming to this bug tracker and was upset that it was rejected. But as stated in that howto, it is no use getting upset at the person who may be able to fix the problem.

Anyway, as I mentioned in the original bug report, the bug occurs very infrequently, but has happened about once a week since I upgraded to 0.19. (I was running 0.18.1 prior to that for several months on the same hardware with the same driver, so I am assuming it is something in mythtv, but don't really know.) I have set up mythbackend in gdb on the chance I can get a backtrace the next time it crashes. I wish I knew a better way to trigger the condition that produces the crash so I could provide this requested information more quickly.

Well, I don't know if anyone looks at bugs once they're closed but figured just in case I want to explain that I'm not refusing to provide this information, I just do not have it and do not expect to get it quickly. And I'm sorry for the smartass reply to ijr.
