Description Alexis Ballier gentoo-dev 2008-06-26 14:57:23 UTC
As mentionned on bug #200735 ; I'm opening a new bug as in fact this doesn't seem related since the reporter doesn't have gst-plugins-ladspa installed.

If I don't have a gstreamer registry:

If I uninstall gst-plugins-ladspa then it is fine, it creates the registry as expected and also allows me to compile totem (otherwise it dies at configure).

retroFlange seems to be the ladspa plugin causing the troubles to gst:
media-plugins/swh-plugins-0.4.15 (/usr/lib64/ladspa/retro_flange_1208.so)
Comment 1 Mart Raudsepp gentoo-dev 2010-08-03 03:03:52 UTC
Is this still an issue with gst-plugins-ladspa-0.10.19 (or even older)?
They reworked some plugin_init stuff in 0.10.19 for ladspa, and the whole plugin scanning process earlier in gstreamer core (separate helper process, etc)

Please reopen with information requested by Mart.
