Bug Description

Binary package hint: rhythmbox

The cause of this crash is the insertion of any Audio CD. It also causes nautilus , brasero and sound-juicer to crash. Data CDs, DVD Videos and data DVDs work perfectly. I have a PIONEER DVD-RW DVR-218L 1.01 SATA optical drive, and others with this drive have had similar, if not identical problems.

How do I complete this bug report? It is still marked as incomplete. I followed the backtrace howto exactly at this site http://wiki.ubuntu.com/DebuggingProgramCrash and I attached it as gdb-rhythmbox.txt. I also did an strace which is saved as strace-rhythmbox.log.gz

snircher, the backtrace is missing a lot of symbols, please install the brasero dbgsym and also the libglib2, libgtk2 dbgsym packages and get a new one , thanks.

I did not have any luck (or understand how) in installing the brasero dbgsym, but attached is the output from gdb which I really hope will be helpful.

Please take a look.

Hey friend (snircher), I also have a PIONEER CD/DVD/RW drive and I am having similar problems. In fact, on mine
Rhythmbox, Sound-juicer, and Nautilus, all crash with a seg fault upon insertion of an audio CD.

My drive is an IDE / PATA but it is an PIONEER DVD-RW DVR-118L 1.02

I do not know what it different about the PIONEER drives but it sure seems clear that this is the number one contributing factor in our problems. I hope the gdb-output I supplied helps the developers fix this. I have files several other bugs on this, too.

Thank you for taking the time to report this bug and helping to make Ubuntu better. Is this reproducible with Ubuntu 9.10 the Karmic Koala? Please test and provide us of feedback about it, Thanks in advance..

Yes, it is indeed reproducible in Ubuntu 9.10 the Karmic Koala. As a matter of fact, I believe that 9.10 is the version that this bug was filed against.

However, I did clear off and made a partition available and installed 64-bit Alpha 2 of lucid to see if this bug will still be a factor once Ubuntu 10.04 is released. The good news is that Audio CDs are detected properly and this BUG is NOT a factor on 64-bit Lucid Alpha 2 (with all subsequent updates applied.) Brasero and Rhythmbox were installed by default and I added Sound-Juicer via synaptic. All worked properly. None crashed (not even nautilus.)

Alpha 2 of 64-bit lucid appears to be very stable. As a matter of fact this development release of lucid is considerably more stable than the final distribution release of 64-bit Ubuntu 9.10.

However, although this bug does not appear to impact lucid (at least at this point), I am concerned that this could be used as an excuse to not fix it in Karmic (and Karmic is still supposed to be supported for a little over a year and are not all these package found in main?) Could this bug be relative to the transition from hal to device-kit?
