Description John5788 2005-04-01 20:24:48 UTC
I recently just updated to gkrellm-2.2.5. I've noticed that gkrellm2 freezes randomly for no reason. I'm assuming this has something to do with gkrellmms-2.1.21. I can force gkrellm2 to freeze by quickly switching through songs. The other way is to let gkrellm2 sit around and it will freeze on its own during the middle of a song.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Switch through songs on xmms quickly
2. Or let gkrellm2 sit around for a few minutes.

Actual Results:  
gkrellm2 freezes with no output from console.

Expected Results:  
gkrellm2 should not freeze

Comment 1 Peter Gordon (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2005-04-01 20:26:56 UTC
What happens if you disable gkrellmms? Does re-emerging both gkrellm and gkrellmms fix it?
Comment 2 Peter Gordon (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2005-04-01 20:27:45 UTC
And does it work if you use *sigh* sane C(XX)FLAGS (such as "-O2 -march=whatever -pipe")?
Comment 3 Mihai Limbasan 2005-04-27 17:28:54 UTC
Works just fine for me. It's almost certainly the utterly insane CFLAGS. Should be closed INVALID.
Comment 4 John5788 2005-04-27 19:16:50 UTC
I did recompile gkrellm2 using CFLAGS="-march=pentium4 -O2 -pipe -Wall -fomit-frame-pointer" and it still produced the same results. Most of the flags in my make.conf are all part of -O2.
Comment 5 Martin Holzer (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2005-05-18 14:36:03 UTC
please try with gkrellmms-2.1.22
Comment 6 John5788 2005-05-20 23:39:58 UTC
I upgraded to the new gkrellmms and the new gkrellm, everything seems to be
working fine :)
Comment 7 John5788 2005-05-20 23:54:20 UTC
OK, I lied, the gkrellm-2.2.5 still randomly freezes even when XMMS isn't even
playing a song.
Comment 8 Daniel Webert 2005-05-21 07:57:02 UTC
deactivate/unload the xmms-plugin ... overhere i have a lot probs if its loaded
(2.1.21 and 2.1.22) w/o the gkrellm 2.2.5 just works fine 
Comment 9 John5788 2005-05-21 11:51:49 UTC
Well, the point of me having that plugin is to use it. If it doesn't work with
gkrellm-2.2.5, I'll just stick with gkrellm-2.2.4 which works fine.
Comment 10 Daniel Webert 2005-08-16 14:30:31 UTC
John5788: could plz report if the prob still exists w/ gkrellm 2.2.7 - btw.
deactivating the xmms-plugin is just to test if the prob is gkrellm, another
plugin, xmms or the gkrellmms
Comment 11 John5788 2005-08-16 22:52:17 UTC
gkrellm-2.2.7 doesnt freeze up when I fast switch through songs.
Comment 12 John5788 2005-08-17 11:16:19 UTC
Actually its starting to freeze again. It only freezes when I let it sit alone.
Comment 13 Jakub Moc (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2006-09-19 03:15:09 UTC
Please, go try w/ 2.2.9-r1 and report back.
Comment 14 John5788 2006-09-23 21:14:09 UTC
everything is fine
