Description Greg McMullen 2005-12-12 00:41:12 UTC
Gaim started segfaulting on startup randomly. I can't think of anything I did
that would cause the problem, i.e. I didn't change any settings, install any
plugins, update gaim, etc.. It is worthy to note that I was able to access my
buddy list initially, and it segfaulted as soon as I sent a message to anyone.
Now it segfaults on startup. I suspect it has something to do with sound as Arts
is at the top of the backtrace which is below.

Program received signal SIGSEGV, Segmentation fault.

libao + arts == not working. See

Unfortunately when you choose auto-detect for sound and libao tries to use arts,
you'll get problems.  The problem is not with gaim, it is with libao.

Search any number of the already-closed bugs on this subject here.
Comment 2 Spider (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2005-12-12 08:42:12 UTC
Hmmm,  From my previous look at the code there isn't much I can do except either
block arts usage ( Not a good solution for libao , but possible)  or wait for
upstream .: /
