Bug Description

Here's the end of stdout and stderr when running rhythmbox --debug :

(rhythmbox:6656): GLib-GObject-CRITICAL **: g_value_set_object: assertion `G_VALUE_HOLDS_OBJECT (value)' failed
Segmentation fault

And here is what is added to kern.log at this point :

rhythmbox[4979]: segfault at 30 ip 00007f8dff0ce0c0 sp 00007fffb605eb38 error 4 in libgstpbutils-.10.so.0.24.0[7f8dff0bf000+20000]

Thank you for taking the time to report this bug and helping to make Ubuntu better. However, your crash report is either missing or challenging to deal with as a ".crash" file. Please follow these instructions to have apport report a new bug about your crash that can be dealt with by the automatic retracer.

If you are running the Ubuntu Stable Release you might need to enable apport in /etc/default/apport and restart.

If you are using Ubuntu with the Gnome desktop environment - launch nautilus and navigate to your /var/crash directory and double click on the crash report you wish to submit.
If you are using Kubuntu or Xubuntu you can file the crash using /usr/share/apport/apport-qt --crash-file=/var/crash/_my_crash_report.crash in a terminal - where _my_crash_report.crash is the crash you would like to report.

I'm closing this bug report since the process outlined above will automatically open a new bug report which can then dealt with more efficiently. Thanks in advance for your cooperation and understanding.

Changed in rhythmbox (Ubuntu):
importance: Undecided → Medium
status: New → Invalid
