A segmentation fault occurs. I fear that I can not help because I don't have an Ubuntu installation running.
I maintain griffith mainly for the windows platform. And a segmentation fault is not an error which I can fix generally.
Perhaps there are other users experiencing the same error and who can analyse a dump from a segmentation fault.

This seems even more relevant to Maverick, where python-sqlalchemy has been updated to 0.6. We have to upgrade to 0.12-1 already for this reason, per I am going to do a test build to see if 0.12-1 from sid builds on Maverick...

This is confirmed that it builds and runs on maverick from sid 0.12-1. I am renaming the bug appropriately and referencing so it can be triaged...

Natty has griffith 0.12.1-1, we'll look at getting this into maverick-backports.

It sounds like the current state of Griffith in Maverick is pretty broken. As a rule, we prefer to backport packages for the sake of new features, not as workarounds for bugs in the stable release.

If it's the case that you can't do even a basic operation (adding a movie to the database) in the current version of Griffith with the current version of SQLAlchemy, then it's possible we should consider the SRU process (

Can you give a sense of what *can* be done in Maverick's Griffith right now that *doesn't* cause a crash?

I'm closing the maverick-backports task on this bug due to Ubuntu 10.10 (Maverick Meerkat) no longer being supported.

This bug is being closed by a bot. If you feel the change was made in error, please feel free to re-open the bug. However, backports requests for Ubuntu 10.10 (Maverick Meerkat) are no longer being accepted.
