Description jehamby 1999-01-06 06:58:41 UTC
rvplayer crashes with a segmentation fault under RedHat.
Here's one workaround which may prove helpful for running
other Linux binaries which crash under glibc 2.0.108 and for
which source is not available:

* Copy these files from glibc-2.0.7 into /cpt: 

* Rename rvplayer to rvplayer.bin and make this shell script
named rvplayer:

/usr/bin/rvplayer.bin $*

* Edit rvplayer.bin (with, e.g. emacs) and change the
reference to /lib/ into /cpt/

If you have a better workaround, or ideally, can fix the
compatibility code in glibc-2.0.108, please let me know.

FYI, it won't work without patching with most of the sound drivers in
2.2 anyways...

Comment 2 jehamby 1999-01-06 18:37:59 UTC
Yup, that's why I've been using ALSA (

Comment 3 Cristian Gafton 1999-02-16 16:18:59 UTC
This is a problem witb the changes in the 2.2 kernel audio drivers,
and Real will have to fix their code.
