Cc: Ticket locked: no


I rebuilt everything this morning from a updated svn tree: MythTV Version : 16916 MythTV Branch : trunk Library API : 0.22.20080320-2 Network Protocol : 40 Options compiled in:

linux release using_oss using_alsa using_arts using_backend using_dbox2 using_dvb using_firewire using_frontend using_hdhomerun using_iptv using_ivtv using_joystick_menu using_lirc using_opengl_video using_v4l using_x11 using_xrandr using_xv using_xvmc using_xvmc_opengl using_bindings_perl using_bindings_python using_opengl using_ffmpeg_threads using_libavc_5_3 using_live using_xvmc_pbuffer

when I start mythfrontend now I get a seg fault right away.

We need a backtrace as you should already know if you're running trunk right now.

We also need the QT version (update to [16917] and do mythfrontend --version).

there were 2 left over plugins (bookmarks and phone) that didnt get remade. they were trying to load old qt3 stuff and was killing things.

I run into the exactly same error and have not idea howto fix it. Even a complete new checkout and new compile can't cure.

I wonder what you've done...?

comment:6 Changed 13 years ago by anonymous

there were old .so files in the plugins directory that tried to use old qt3. /usr/local/mythtv/libs/mythtv/plugins in my case. also libmythphone even though it was rebuilt was still using old qt3. I think the build process on that one is broken.

Thankyou alot!

I removed all *.so files in /usr/local/lib/mythtv/plugins/ and recompile from scratch. Works well!
