I have come across two bugs (which will be added to launchpad if it's not resolved here)
- When I open any of the websites in Banshee Amazon or Miro Guide as soon as the site is finished loading it crashes Banshee.
If I play any video local or remote it will show 1 frame maybe 0.5 sec of video then I get a black screen and audio continues in the backgound.
- Specs & Details
I have a Fujitsu Amilo 1718 laptop with 2 gig of ram (original 1 gig) graphics is provided by ATI Radeon Xpress 200M (don't laugh it works with compiz....just)
I have a link to the output of
banshee --debug Here.
Don't have time to read? Here are the highlights:
[2 Warn 11:52:34.814] Caught an exception - System.ArgumentNullException: Argument cannot be null.
then a bit later
Debug info from gdb: Could not attach to process. If your uid matches the uid of the target process, check the setting of /proc/sys/kernel/yama/ptrace_scope, or try again as the root user. For more details, see /etc/sysctl.d/10-ptrace.conf ptrace: Operation not permitted. ================================================================= Got a SIGSEGV while executing native code. This usually indicates a fatal error in the mono runtime or one of the native libraries used by your application. ================================================================= Aborted
Not music to my ears as you can expect. The version I am using is 1.9.4 from the daily ppa but these bugs happen in any version of banshee from 1.8.1 and up. So if any one has come across a fix for this problem please share!!
Both VLC and Miro work on my system so there isn't a system wide problem with video and I haven't mentioned mono so no trolling it will get voted down.
Ok so half way there I added the webkit teams ppa
ppa:webkit-team/ppa to my software sources and updated. The result is Banshee no longer crashes when opening sites. However its is still unable to play video even after disabling gapless playback as per Michaels instructions so Halfway there but not the full Banana.
