Debian Multimedia :: Segmenation Fault On Skype 2.1. On Squeeze?
Mar 7, 2011
Skype was running okey when I was using it on Lenny and was still running okey on squeeze (when I upgraded) until yesterday when it won't start anymore after login. It simply crashes. I run it on terminal to capture the error and the result is:
I had Skype debian_220.127.116.11-1_amd64 on my Debian 2.6.32-5 amd64 and it was working without any problem. After re-installing my gnome desktop environment, my skype stopped working. I tried to re-install it. I found out it re-installs without any error but it doesn't launch and gives me "segmentation fault" error on terminal. I purged skype, deleted the .skype folder and installed it again with no luck. when I try to re-install skype via software center it says: "Sorry, 'skype' is not available for this type of computer (amd64)." what should I do to have the skype working on my system again?
I need help in getting Skype to work with Debian Squeeze.The problem is that there's no 64 bit version of Skype for Debian Squeeze and the other versions (Skype static and Skype Ubuntu 64 bit) makes Skype crash after login. Is it possible to get the 32bit version of Skype working with Debian Squeeze and how about other solutions?
I'm running debian 8, no problems, after I recently upgraded some packages, skype did not open, I used terminal to open it and it gave an output saying
Code: Select allSegmantation fault
Then i opened it as super user and it gave this output
Code: Select all(process:1500): GConf-WARNING **: Client failed to connect to the D-BUS daemon:
Did not receive a reply. Possible causes include: the remote application did not send a reply, the message bus security policy blocked the reply, the reply timeout expired, or the network connection was broken.
I would like to know which is the default audio system for Squeeze. I'll explain the reason for this question: I had a lenny desktop working like a charm until the hard disk damaged completely. After buying a new desktop computer, I installed Ubuntu 9.10 and I didn't know that the default audio system for Ubuntu was pulseaudio; so I always had problems with skype and my microphone. I remember that with my lenny desktop I never ever had any problem with my sound system and skype.
I've googled for months without finding a consistent fix for this problem in Ubuntu, I've also heard lots and lots of people with the same problem as mine and never solved it; so I decided to get rid of it and install debian Squeeze in my box, but I would like to be sure which is the default audio system for Squeeze, or at least know if anyone have had problems with skype and Squeeze.
Using the howto at http://wiki.debian.org/skype I installed Skype 2.1 beta 2. It launches OK using either skype or linux32 skype and brings up the login screen. It already has my username but when I enter my password skype crashes before logging me in. I get the error:
Some time ago I had to reinstall all my packages under 64-bit OpenSuse 11.2. After that I can't get Skype working - Skype always gives me "segmentation fault" when trying to execute it (from command-line).
I've followed steps recommended in wiki, I've tried different versions (32-bit as well as 64-bit RPMs) downloaded from different repositories (including old 1.4.0.xx). Nothing changes anything.
I don't have any webcam and I've never had one, so I guess it cannot be related to that.
Running programs in X (WindowMaker) as another user.
Until recently (Debian Stretch) I was able to run graphical programs in X as a second user, like so:
- log into X as user1 - run "xhost+" - run "su - user2" - run any graphical program (gthumb, konquerer, ...) as user2
Now when I try to run a program as user2, I get
Code: Select allÂ user2@localhost:~$ gthumb Â error: XDG_RUNTIME_DIR not set in the environment. Â Segmentation fault
XDG_RUNTIME_DIR for user1 points to /run/user/1000 which I believe gets created by pam_systemd when logging into X. However, doing "su - user2" does not create /run/user/1001. Why not? And how do I get on-the-fly user switching working again?
Related to this, /run/user/1001 not being created on user switch has always caused me some grief b/c audio would not work for user2. But I could work around that by piping pulse through a socket. But now graphics are also broken and that I can't seem to work around.
I have discovered that epiphany cannot be launched. When I try, either from the gnome desktop or from a terminal, I get a box which reports that epiphany has terminated unexpectedly, and would I like to recover the last session. If I click on either from the desktop, nothing happens. Doing it from a terminal, I get the following:
I'm trying to use GPA - GNU Privacy Assistant - installed from debian repository. When I start the program, comes an error message, that library GPGME sent back unexpected fault and this fault is some general error in Assuan. Program itself has then a lot of problems during its running. "The GPGME library returned an unexpected error. The error was:General Assuan error This is probably a bug in GPA. GPA will now try to recover from this error."
I am running Debian testing with XFCE desktop and a Logitech C920 webcam. I have installed skype but can not get the microphone to work with Skype (I know the webcam works OK as I have tested it on another PC running windows).
I have Pulseaudio installed, I have installed pavucontrol to check the settings and the microphone is enabled. I have checked alsamixer and the microphone is enabled. All I get when I do the Skype audio test is a low hiss in the background no audio or any distortion to suggest that it is capturing my voice
Below is the recipe I've used to compile dwm from source on Squeeze
su apt-get install devscripts debian-keyring apt-get build-dep dwm exit
It all seems to work, however debuild gave an error about secret keys. Is this a sensible procedure? What happens in the (probably unlikely) event there is another source patch?I've gone to a tiling window manager as the result of the purchase of a wide screen LCD monitor. I like to have some stuff down the right hand side when running Firefox and OpenOffice in the main panes. Any configuration tricks welcome. Modern screens are the wrong shape!

I tried to install Skype, using the Debian download from Skype, but it didn't want to play. I downloaded the Ubuntu 64-bit deb and installed it with Gdebi. I started the application from the terminal and accepted the 'User Agreement'. Skype then tried to log me on, and I got the following error and the app closed:
I want to install VGA driver on debian squeeze. my VGA is "Intel Corporation 82G33/G31 Express Integrated Graphics Controller".I do not know which driver I must install for this VGA.Does Linux recognize related driver ?
I've just installed Squeeze 6.01a from the xfce iso image on an old PIII which has been running Lenny with xfce without any problems. It's a fresh install after a reformat.
Sounds and multimedia apps like gxine and mplayer all worked fine on Lenny and other older versions. Now they don't - not gxine, not mplayer not even VLC. Run from the menu they all abort - and if run in an xterm they all crash with the following message -
Assertion 'pthread_mutex_unlock(&m->mutex) == 0' failed at pulsecore/mutex-posix.c:108, function pa_mutex_unlock(). Aborting.

Recently I installed Debian Squeeze - 2.6.32-5-686 but I found problem with my TV OUT again. Before I had the same problem but I found decision here with this patch and everything was OK. Now I have the same problem with new NVIDIA driver (275.09.07) and Debian Squeeze. I tried older drivers but nothing. My video card i NVIDIA - 9500GT.
I have a Debian Sid x86_64 installation on my laptop. I used to use skype a lot when I was on ArchLinux in chrooted 32bit environment. Nowdays, I tried running skype straight on the 64bit environment, when I finally got it running, I couldn't get into sound settings, it froze right when I clicked the Sound options... So I decided to make the 32 bit environment, so I used debootstrap and schroot and now I have fully functional 32bit chrooted system. It does the same thing all over again! it drives me crazy... I should probably tell you, I use pulseaudio. This makes it a little hard to like the distro for me... I used to be an ArchLinux user for quite few years, but I didn't want to solve so many things every day, so I went with debian
I am using USB logitech webcam C510, tested it OK with luvcview. But when I use skype no video shows up on my screen, the cam is still on (LED turns on) and remote user see my face. I googled a lot and can't find a way to fix it.
After unsuccessfully trying to install some updates on my debian squeeze system, I can no longer login to gnome when I restart the system. I've tried logging in both as root and as user and have typed in 'startx' or 'gnome-session' at the prompt but I get an error message "**(gnome-session:12020): WARNING **: Cannot open display:". I've searched the web for solutions but nothing works. I've had my debian squeeze for over three years now with no issues.
