isn't this a duplicate of bug #100774 ?

Comment 2 schiebe 2004-04-27 14:59:15 UTC
What means "nothing happens" at your report? 
When i press the record button on my machine gets the recorder closed.
-> seg fault. 

Comment 3 Tomasz Kubacki 2004-05-19 08:24:08 UTC
I've the same problem in Fedora Core 2
I've SBLive! and it works good (i can hear my voice in speaker when i
talk to microphone)

When i press record button it says:
"segmentation fault" (in polish)

Comment 4 Eddahbi Karim 2004-05-24 01:58:51 UTC
I have the same bug but I have a different backtrace than the bug #100774.

If I launch gstreamer-properties and test the Alsa source, it fails,
with the OSS source it works AND I can hear me when I speak into the

I can, then, use gstreamer-properties.
If I hit 'Record' it works, the sound recorded can be played but if I
hit 'Record' again, gstreamer don't save the new sound creates a 0KB
file (like the #115105 bug).

By the way, with the alsa source, I got this backtrace :

Program received signal SIGSEGV, Segmentation fault.

Previous frame identical to this frame (corrupt stack?) 

The program 'gnome_segv' isn't invoked by gstreamer when it crashes.

If I use 'rec', the record works so it's the software which seems buggy.

I have a VIA Audio controller chipset.
The Alsa module loaded is called 'snd-via82xx'

Fedora Core 2 : 2.6.6-1.435 / Gnome. INTEL. Ensoniq 1371
Same here, seg fault.
If you choose "Voice" quality, IT DOES NOT CRASH.
if you choose "CD Quality", low or high, it does.

Hope this helps.


Comment 6 Colin Adams 2004-07-02 11:31:31 UTC
Mine crashes when I choose Voice quality. I have not tried the others.
I don't see any messages or any sort of diagnostic. Where do I look
for them?
