Hi, Gstreamer currently has a release critical bug that seems to be only reproducable on powerpc machines without altivec support and even then not always. The best hint to what the problem might be seems to indicate there is an issue in the libvisual altivec detection code.. Also for some reporters the problem went away (!?). Google revealed that pld-linux re-enabled the altivec detection because it works ``on fixed kernel''. So it might be related to specific kernel versions. So what i would like people to do (Only on machine without altivec!): 0: Install gstreamer 0.10 (at least gstreamer0.10-plugins-base and gstreamer0.10-tools from etch) 1: Run: rm ~/.gstreamer-0.10/registry.*.xml gst-launch-0.10 --gst-disable-registry-fork 2a: If it doesn't crash: - please try on an older kernel if possible 2b: If it does crash: - please try on a newer (debian) kernel if possible - if that doesn't help try the libvisual packages at: http://people.debian.org/~sjoerd/libvisual/ 3: Thanks for testing! Please mail your experiences, kernel versions, machines types etc. Sjoerd 0: http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=404876;msg=88 -- Don't kid yourself. Little is relevant, and nothing lasts forever.
