Description Simon 2017-10-11 18:04:42 UTC
media-sound/jalv-1.6.0-r1 segfaults when opening plugins which have a Qt5 GUI. See for more info.
It does work for Qt4 GUIs.

This issue seems to be fixed in jalv's master branch. Do we want to try to figure out which commits fixed the issue and add them as patches?
Or should we simply wait till a new jalv release is made (or request it?)

When we look at bug 621708 and considering the recent release of suil with full Qt5-support maybe asking for a new release makes sense indeed.

I'll give that commit a try this weekend
Comment 4 Simon 2017-10-14 16:51:55 UTC
I've asked drobilla if a release for jalv is planned in the near future.

Also, the linked commit does seem to fix the issue for me.

I'd like to wait a couple of days for drobilla's response. If there's no response or there will be no release in the near future I'll create a PR to add the linked commit as a patch. Is that OK?

Works for me for sure.
