Description Rusty Phillips 2005-12-27 17:23:18 UTC
If the .avidemuxrc file is missing or wrongly configured, avidemux will not start.  I can't prove that it will work if I have this file because I don't have it, and I can't seem to find it on the internet.  

I can prove that its dying looking for it, though (the soruce also confirms that this is a "death" condition).

Consider the end of this strace output from this program:
write(1, " Registering Filters\n", 21 Registering Filters
)  = 21
write(1, "*********************\n", 22*********************
) = 22
write(1, "\n", 1
)                       = 1

access("/home/rusty/.avidemuxrc", R_OK) = -1 ENOENT (No such file or directory)

Not even in portage any more; try with 2.0.42-r1 or 2.1_pre1. If it still doesn't work, reopen with a backtrace and emerge --info.
