How do I get pSX working? I tried copying the psx.ini file from another machine because the thread says pSX works fine after you change the sound device used, but it still segfaults when I try running it.
I have tried to setup a workstation with 3 monitors on two ati videocards, the goal being to span the desktop across all of them.
The process was not difficult at all, but after login X11 crashes and I am left with a console. I am fortunately able to login in safe mode, but I would like to ask for help in debugging this issue.
Here I will try to give as much detail as possible, starting with my system specifications:
The first card, the ATI Radeon HD 4650 is capable of running two monitors at the same time. The monitors, for all it matters, are three identical ACER P206HV 20" connected with their analog interface (due to missing cables which I will buy soon). Resolution 1600x900 each. My motherboard is an AsRock 870 Extreme3 mounting an AMD Athlon II X4 640 3 GHz processor and 8 GB of RAM.
When asked by Ubuntu, I installed the ATI Caralyst driver version 11.6 and set it up for using Xinerama.
As I said, this setup works fine if I login in safe mode, but crashes X11 otherwise (even in classical mode - no Unity). By inspecting the logs (attached) I found this (notice the segfault)
As a test, I tryed to configure Catalyst without Xinerama, an this works, but of course I end up with two separate desktop, which is not what I want. In this mode, xrandr seems to work correctly
After some research I found that XRandR does not support desktop spanning over multiple GPUs, so Xinerama is the only way to go in my case. Since the two are not compatible with each other, after login in safe mode I see that XRandR is disabled
One more test consisted in disabling the XRandR module in the config files, as found in some posts: edits in /etc/X11/xorg.conf
Rhythmbox crashes on startup, Clementine crashes once I try to play any file, Banshee crashes after the first second of any file. Totem actually still works, but it's not a very satisfying media player. :P This occurred suddenly after working fine for, well, months. I read that I should check whether I have the standard up-to-date gstreamer/pulseaudio/liborc versions installed, this seems to be the case.
I'm having some trouble after the day 31 upgrade. Using the lightdm, kdm or sddm I'm unable to start a plasma session. Through dmesg I'm seeing that something is wrong with libxcb:

And I'm getting this in xsession-errors:

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.
I've a ATI HD 4290 video-card and I installed the closed drivers of ATI/AMD. Everything worked fine until I updated Ubuntu. Yesterday, I received an automatic update from the Ubuntu-servers and I accepted this update.
But after I updated everything and restart my computer, X.org won't work. When I start my computer, I get this. (Translated: Your monitor, video card and your input devices couldn't be detected correctly. You have to choose manually the correct settings.)
So, I was just importing some images to F-Spot, when it suddenly crashed. Now, when I try starting it, it flashes with some error that I can't read. It appears and disappears very quickly. Here's the output from the terminal code...
I am using Ubuntu 9.10 and having trouble with Amarok. It crashes on on startup. I have read that the issue is not with Amarok but rather phonon. Is there a solution? Application: Amarok (amarok), signal: Segmentation fault [Current thread is 1 (Thread 0xb68cb950 (LWP 13047))]

I am trying to convert movies to mpeg4 or more specifically formatted to play on my blackberry curve. I followed installation guide from this tutorial [URL]. Everything installed and the program works but when I add a file and pick presets and hit convert the terminal pops up and says the following:
So I press Enter and the terminal closes, than... nothing happens just staring at the winff screen.
I really have no idea where to go with this. I found a link from the forums earlier on these common crashes but cant seem to find it again.
When I try to play anything in banshee it crashes with the error:
Code: ================================================================= Got a SIGSEGV while executing native code. This usually indicates a fatal error in the mono runtime or one of the native libraries used by your application. =================================================================
Same thing happens with Listen and Rhythmbox, but with a segmentation fault.
Amarok doesn't even get past the splash screen, but that's more or less okay because I'd rather stick with gnome.
Guayadeque is the only decent music player that works, and even it isn't without its issues. Audacious also works, but I don't like Audacious(the whole "one big playlist" system... ew).
Of course if I had my way I'd skip gnome music players entirely and go with foobar2000, but wouldn't you know it, that doesn't work either. [URL]
I'm using 10.04 beta, but these problems were present on 9.10 too.
I've been running into issues with VLC crashing now and again, particularly when seeking through the current item using the bar (as opposed to Ctrl-Right Arrow/Left Arrow); it may have happened in a few other spots, but that's usually when I'm not at my keyboard. All files are stored locally on my HD, mostly .avi video. For the most part, when I'm using VLC, I've got Firefox and maybe a Nautilus window running as well. CPU use, Memory use, and System load stay pretty well down (and I've never managed to get my swap usage above 120MiB of the 1.2GiB on the Swap partition).
I've tried removing and reinstalling VLC, no dice; about screen lists Ver 1.0.2 Goldeneye. A side effect of this is that, until I restart the system, the screen is unable to be put to sleep at it's timeout; in the notification bar of the top panel, an icon appears and (if the mouse is left there) a little box will appear with text as follows: Session active, not inhibited, screen idle. If you can see this text, your display server is broken and you should notify your distributor. Please see [URL] for more information.
The URL there listed doesn't have any information that seems to be useful, but, I'd presume that VLC does something to prevent the screen turning off while it's playing (a situation where most folks aren't going to be typing or mousing around), which is undone when VLC ends cleanly (and re-opening, then exiting doesn't fix it).
I use Ubuntu 10.04 but I had this problem in 9.10 too.
I have a problem regarding my sound preferences. I have a microphone and I want to use it to make calls. The problem is that when I speak into the microphone when a program like Skype is used, my sound suddenly crashes(The microphone won't take any input nor will I hear any sound from the speakers if I play a video or music. This gets fixed if I restart the computer). This also happens if I go to Sound preferences → Input or Output and edit something there.
If I don't make any of the above, the sound works just fine as I can listen to music and play videos.
I don't know much about computer hardware but here is some info about my sound card:
Code: VIA Technologies, Inc. VT1708/A[Azalia HDAC] (VIA High Definifion Audio Controller) (rev 10)
Shotwell keeps on crashing when importing either from a folder or my iPhone. I am using it on an S10 netbook. I tried several versions but keeps on getting the same problem. I am thinking of cleaning everything from Shotwell and reinstall. I am running Ubuntu on an iMac via vbox (with less resource) and do not get the problem.
I tried searching but have not gotten any solid answer to resolve it.
Basically I'm running Rosegarden, fire up qsynth, load a soundfont and when it's restarting the fluidsynth engine it just hangs and does nothing. Has anyone run into this before? It's really quite irritating because as far as I know it's the only free synth with support for soundfonts.
I am having some trouble with RhythmBoxt runs fine until I install the package (Synaptics) Rhythmbox plugins 0.12.8-0. After I install this package and then open RhythmBox, the applications opens for a few seconds and then closes (terminates). I get a segmentation fault.I tried reinstalling but this does not help. From previous posts, others were also obtaining segmentation faults, others had success with uninstalling the rhythmbox-ubuntuone-music-store package. I do not have this installed on my system. My problem is related with the plugins package.If I run rhythmbox from the command line in sudo mode it starts without crashing but with a warning:Rhythmbox-WARNING **: Unable to grab media player keys: Could not get owner of name 'org.gnome.SettingsDaemon': no such name But when I select one of the plugin sources it then terminates and closes down
Since 10.04, dvdrip will not finish ripping without crashing on multi episode disk. Reopened dvdrip to copy log files (below) and only part of log remains, but now transcode is available where before it was not. This dvd has 22 chaptors and it crashed at the end of 21. 22 came up on the progress bar but just stalled there.
I have just changed something in preferences for Skins. Then I restarted my vlc media player and now I cant run vlc! I removed and reinstalled vlc Thousand times but it didn't work! When I type vlc in Terminal :

I use to use amarok a lot back in the day and loved it. Saw that I could install it on ubuntu (which was a great suprise, since I though amarok was a KDE application).
Anyways, EVERY time I load amarok, I see it pop up for about 1 or 2 seconds and then my xserver (is that what it is called? the GUI portion of linux) crashes and restarts. EVERY SINGLE TIME. Open amarok, xserver crashes and restarts.
every time I try to try to update my library, banshee keeps crashing. It started after I relocated where my mp3 files are and changed the path in banshee too. I tried deleting the banshee folder under my home folder and removing and reinstalling banshee, but the problem persisted. This is the when it is run from terminal:
Code: [Info 04:46:29.238] Running Banshee 1.8.0: [Ubuntu 10.10 (linux-gnu, x86_64) @ 2010-11-26 14:10:54 UTC] [Info 04:46:29.569] Starting collection of anonymous usage data [Warn 04:46:30.139] Caught an exception - System.ApplicationException: Invalid
If I use K9Copy to compress a 6.4 gb DVD to a 4.4gb ISO files, it heats up the CPU and the machine shuts off. When I do this with system monitor ON, I see 160% to 180% CPU usage. I guess this is due to dual core on my Gateway laptop.Then I installed DVD Shrink and tried the same by running DVD Shrink using Wine. This caused the same problem.I did not have this issue when I was using Windows Vista. Is there anything that I can do to avoid this problem?
For the past few weeks my system has been exhibiting some strange behavior. The first of these instances has been in the form of a total system lockup necessitating a power cycle -- ie. no kernel panic or oops, but cessation of all on-screen activity and an unresponsive mouse and keyboard. ( The first lockup occurred when the monitor was powered down)
Just a few days ago, I started noticing something else : Launching Firefox (3.6.4pre) resulted in it locking up near start-up especially if I was logged into Gmail. After that I experienced a total system lockup and then another one which has placed me in the situation as suggested in the title.
Specifically, KDM and the KDM login manager will start-up and I will be allowed to type my password. Immediately after that when the first of the icons in the KDE start-up animation starts to come into focus the screen goes black and I am returned to the KDM login manager -- I can enter my password again and continue this process ad infinitum.
Trying to diagnose the issue, I attached GDB to KDM. It seems that after I enter my password one or more of the KDE start-up processes dies with signal 1 or to be more specific :
Program received signal SIGUSR1, User defined signal 1. 0x00007f4ae742d3c3 in select () from /lib/libc.so.6 (gdb) bt full
