Debian Multimedia :: Most OpenGL Apps Crash My Laptop / What To Fix?

Jul 11, 2010

I'm running Debian Lenny with GNOME on a ThinkPad T43. Some OpenGL apps like the game Trigger run great, while others like Stellarium crash my system beyond recovery. I get a black screen, I can see the mouse cursor and move it at a very slow speed, but nothing else. I can't switch to a different terminal or restart X with ctrl-alt-bksp.

I assume that the problematic apps do not like the laptop's integrated graphics chip? Is there a way to know ahead of time what apps might be troublesome, before actually running them? I hate hard resets.

Debian :: Uninterpretable Apps Continuously Crash Computer?

Mar 15, 2011

I was wondering what is happening to my computer. It runs perfectly fine, until out of nowhere my CPU load goes up to 100% for no reason, and in the System Monitor, the process that I think is responsible is the "uninterruptible process". It's so far been chrome, firefox-bin, and now gnome-netstatus-applet.

Is this a hardware problem or buggy software? Because I honestly don't know what it is. I've even reinstalled the programs and rebooted several times, most of the reboots were because of my computer crashing every time!

Ubuntu :: OpenGL Apps Don't Work?

May 23, 2010

Whenever I try to start an OpenGL app in the terminal, I get a message to the point of "could not create GL context." It was working until around the last update. I know it's not a hardware problem because my windows partition works as well as ever.

I'm using Hardy Heron with the closed Nvidia driver with a Geforce 9800gt
'glxinfo | grep OpenGL' gives

Error: glXCreateContext failed

Ubuntu :: FGLRX And 10.10 - Some OpenGL Apps Don't Load

Dec 21, 2010

I need to use FGLRX on my laptop, if I don't, either some OpenGL apps don't load, or the performance is poor.. With FGLRX the performance of the app is great and all work..

However, since Ubuntu 10.10, FGLRX no longer has "smooth" video.. And what I mean by that, even a simple DVD is dropping like 50% of it's frames every second with FGLRX. However, if I use the open source ATI driver, there is no video performance problem and even HD video plays fine, but then GL apps become a problem again..

In Ubuntu 10.04 FGLRX didn't have this problem. I did try to upgrade to the latest FGLRX 10.12, and every time I try on Ubuntu 10.10, I result with X not starting at all..

Here's the kicker though, the built in Movie Player with Ubuntu, works fine no matter which driver is used.. Now this wouldn't be an issue for me, but DVD's don't play right in that player, it runs like it's vibrating, but all other video formats work fine..

I'm at a loss. I gave up Linux a few months ago and wanted to try again, but once again, ATI is letting me down, and this is a laptop, buying a new laptop just because of the GPU is out of the question.

Ubuntu :: Memory Usage Steadily Increases Until Restart OpenGL Apps?

Aug 6, 2010

I use an ATI card with proprietary drivers and my memory usage in ideal situations when idle is around 600-700 MB. I use cairo-dock, AWN, compiz, gnome-do, and GNOME (w/o panel). My problem is, I have mysteriously increasing memory usage over time, which drops back down after I restart all my openGL applications. It can get as high as 1.5 GB. Looking in top, the weird thing is that when I sort by memory, I observe that none of the applications I am restarting, nor Xorg, use a significantly smaller percentage of system memory after being restarted. So what is going on? Does fglrx have some kind of memory leak? And is there a fix? In the last 10 minutes, my memory has for no apparent reason increased from 700 MB idle to 775 idle, and is still going up.

Ubuntu :: KDE Apps Cause 10.10 To Crash?

Jan 5, 2011

After a fresh install of Ubuntu 10.10 (and all updates applied) any(?) KDE app causes Ubuntu to crash. (X restarts and the login screen is presented.)This happens immediately when opening kolourpaint, after clicking add file in krename, and after clicking "ok" to set up krusader for the first time.

Debian Multimedia :: Browsers And Multimedia Players Conlict And Crash?

May 23, 2011

Using Debian stable. 64-Bit. I can play videos and music using Totem and VLC. And I can play audio files with audacious and Rhythmbox. And I can play flash in firefox and google-chrome. But, if I open audacious and then play a flash file in Firefox or google-chrome audacious crashes as well as other multimedia players that I have open such as Totem, VLC and/or Ryhthmbox.

Would like to know if you can offer some troubleshooting steps to take so that I can play a flash file in a browser and still play an mp3 file in the audio player without having to kill those processes and restart.

Slackware :: CLI Apps Crash Over Ssh (and Locally)?

Dec 11, 2010

I often connect to my main box via ssh and then run 'screen.' The client machine is running Slackware64 13.1, the box I connect to is running Slackware64-currentSome time ago I noticed the following phenomenon:1. Sometimes (relatively often) cli apps just freeze usually at the very beginning (when they start) and I have to either use Ctrl+C or kill a screen window. It happens both with screen an without it. I've noticed it with vim (never with emacs -nw, or nano), "slackpkg upgrade-all", sbopkg).2. Sometimes/some CLI programs display 'weird' characters. For example, sbopkg's border. It does not happen when I run the same app locally.Is it something to do with encoding? It happens both with and without 'screen'.Both 1 and 2 happen with sakura (my main terminal emulator), terminal, konsole and xterm.

Debian Multimedia :: Get 'no Device' When Trying To Use TV Apps

Apr 23, 2011

I'm having a problem getting a winTV card working. Looks like the card installs correctly and I know the card works ok. I get "no device" when trying to use TV apps (kdetv, tvtime, xawtv). They look for the device at video0 but mine gets configured as video1. How can I change that? I have tried using ivtv-ctl -d /dev/video1 to change the device but that didn't help.

Debian Multimedia :: X Crash Using Splashy ?

May 6, 2011

I'm using a Debian lenny with kernel 2.6.26-2-686 without desktop and with splashy installed.

Inside /etc/rc2.d/ I've a link to launch a full screen opengl application (a game). After several minutes the X crash.

To try a little this issue, instead of launching my app, I tried to launch "xinit glxgears" using a link in /etc/rc2.d. After 5 reboots, the glxgears crashes 5 times with the same dmesg message.

If I uninstall splashy or instead of launching glxgears using a link in /etc/rc2.d I launch it from the console, the crash never happens.

I'm using:

following message appears in dmesg after the crash:

Debian Multimedia :: KDE 5 And E17 - All Qt4 Apps Tray Icons Are Missing

Jul 26, 2015

All qt4 apps tray icons are missing. Debian decided to drop sni-qt support and wmsystemtray is actually piece of shit. Also I can't even use ubuntu version of sni-qt, because it also needs to have patched version of qt4, but debian refused to include that patches. What should I do to make skype icon visible in kde5 tray?

Debian Multimedia :: Pulseaudio And Gstreamer Apps Are Crashing?

Aug 18, 2010

I got a problem with gstreamer programs and pulseaudio. I am running Debian Squeeze and needed to install pulseaudio to get better bluetooth-headset support. After installing everything every application except gstreamer applications could access the sound server the right way. Even flash and sdl are running via ALSA routing to pulse.

If I start programs running with gstreamer they crash with a segmantation fault. Totem does not start anyway. If I run it in the terminal it crashes immediately with a segmantation error. The debug mode prints out $ totem --debug

(totem:3450): Totem-DEBUG: Received SaveYourself(SmSaveLocal, !Shutdown, SmInteractStyleNone, !Fast) in state idle
(totem:3450): Totem-DEBUG: Setting initial properties


I have installed the gstreamer plugin for pulseaudio and the gstreamer-plugins-good and bad. I started gstreamer-properties and choosed the right output driver. When testing the peep comes out of the right output.

Via google I founded some bugs, that were similiar to mine. But they had made the mistake not to install the plugins. I also can not choose ALSA in gstreamer and do the routing way. The programs using gstreamer simply crashing. I tried exaile. It also crashes the same way like rhythmbox. Is it a real bug? Or can I do something against that. VLC and kaffeine running very well. But I would be sad about not being able to use rhythmbox. I like that fast program. Or is there a way to get rhythmbox tto not using gstreamer?

Debian Multimedia :: Make A Livecd With A Set Of Privacy Apps?

Nov 28, 2010

Just for the fun and learning experience I am working on a minimal install with Squeeze +IceWM. The goal is to make a livecd with a set of privacy apps - like Iceweasel with Tor/privoxy and some encryption tools. Everything is working out just fine, but I thought it would be very nice to have an installer. I read about the refractainstaller and refractasnapshot in this post, and thought they sound like a good solution: viewtopic.php?f=19&t=54635#p315738 However, the links seem to be dead and so were all the mirrors I tried. Does anyone know where these files can be found or any other easy way I can make Debian installable from a livecd?

Debian Multimedia :: Scribus Crash When Editing Text

Jul 20, 2015

I use Scribus 1.4.4 without any changes from the Debian stable repository.

Each time when I edit text in the layout mode (not in the text editor) the program crashes with a "signal #11" message:

Code: Select all$ scribus
TIFFFetchNormalTag: Warning, Incompatible type for "RichTIFFIPTC"; tag ignored.
TIFFFetchNormalTag: Warning, Incompatible type for "RichTIFFIPTC"; tag ignored.

TIFFFetchNormalTag: Warning, Incompatible type for "RichTIFFIPTC"; tag ignored.
Scribus Crash
Scribus crashes due to Signal #11
Calling Emergency Save
Segmentation fault

On Wheezy I was using Scribus also, but without such problems. Unfortunately I often need to use the text editing in the layout mode in order to adjust the text flow for the final layout.

Debian Multimedia :: Random Crash Of X-server (Jessie KDE)

Nov 5, 2015

Aprox. 1 time per day / every two days hangs the x-server. It hangs a few secs then is being killed and restarted. A popup window in the task bar tells me the restart of the x-server. After that about 15 sec. I can continue to work but sometimes the gtk2 apps lose their integrity thus I have to restart by logging off and in again.

Code: Select all    Nov  3 09:25:30 PC2 org.kde.kuiserver[1070]: kuiserver: Fatal IO error: client killed

what does it mean "Remote peer vanished with error" ? Remote access? I am not competent to evaluate that.

Debian Multimedia :: Tightvnc Server And Can't Start GUI Apps As Root

Feb 12, 2015

I have headless debian as a server which i use over tightvnc server running on it. Vnc works fine but I can't for example run sudo mousepad or any other gui app from terminal, it says something about not having the rights to open it as root. I understand this has something to do with security, but my computers are behind nat so the vnc server can only be connected inside my lan so i don't mind.

Debian Multimedia :: When Quit Ibus Iceweasel And Icedove Crash

Apr 13, 2016

I am recent convert from Arch GNU/Linux after deciding that it's free software or bust. I'm enamored by your project (free software + large user base + stable releases supported for many years = precious, one-of-a-kind distro) and hope I can soon start contributing.

Anyway, I'm on Debian 8.4 with MATE, only main repo enabled, all packages up-to-date. I turn on ibus (via a keyboard shortcut that runs "ibus-daemon -dx") when I need to type in Portuguese or Esperanto. When I'm done, I quit ibus either by right-clicking its tray icon and choosing "quit" or by using a keyboard shortcut to "killall ibus-daemon". Unfortunately, regardless of how I quit ibus, iceweasel and icedove crash every time ibus quits.

I tried running ibus with "ibus-daemon -d" instead of the above command. Now there are no crashes when I quit ibus BUT iceweasel and icedove ignore ibus altogether (i.e., I cannot type special characters--keyboard input is as if ibus were off).

How to start and stop ibus in a way that both a) causes it to work in all applications including iceweasel and icedove AND b) iceweasel and icedove don't crash when ibus quits?

Fedora :: Wine/opengl/32 To 64 Bit - Cannot Load OpenGL When Try To Start WoW

Oct 19, 2009

I just upgraded from FC8 (32-bit) to FC11 (64-bit). In doing so, I backed up my entire World of Warcraft folder so I could try to avoid having to download and install it all over again. However, I've now reinstalled wine (64-bit now), and the nvidia drivers from the rpmfusion repos (also 64-bit), and when I try to start WoW, it says it cannot load OpenGL. I'm wondering if anyone knows what's up, and if there's a solution that doesn't involve reinstalling WoW.

Debian Multimedia :: MPlayer No Longer Listed In Apps Menu After System Update

Aug 3, 2010

MPlayer was working just fine last night, but today I'm having problems which may be due to me performing a system update. I noticed that MPlayer was no longer listed in my Applications menu and I no longer had the option of opening videos with it. However, I now had Gnome MPlayer which must have been installed with the update because I never installed it. Whilst going through Synaptic, I found that the MPlayer GUI had been removed, so I re-installed it. However nothing happened when I attempted to open videos with it.

When I tried to use it through the terminal I got the error message:
mplayer: relocation error: mplayer: symbol codec_wav_tags, version LIBAVFORMAT_52 not defined in file with link time reference

I found a bug report on this very problem here [URL]. The conclusion was that the person filing the bug report was using a version of ffmpeg not found in Debian and that he'd need a version of MPlayer built with his version of ffmpeg libs. I'm assuming that this is also the case with me, however I'm not sure how to go about finding a build or simply building a version of MPlayer with whatever version of ffmpeg that I'm using. For reference, I'm using Squeeze.
