Bug Description

Binary package hint: nautilus

Nautilus restarts when I right click "Properties" on a sound or video file. It's not a crash, nautilus simply exits and gnome restarts it.

This is fresh Gutsy. Nautilus 1:2.19.2-0ubuntu2. It's been there for at least two weeks, maybe more.

I've tried to see what's causing that and found out it's a symbol lookup error inside

Here is the relevent part of a strace of nautilus:

read(11, " \257\203\277\0\0\0\0\1\0\0\0\1\0\0\0\f\0\0\0\1\1\1\1\1\0\1\5\t\1\1\0\0\0\0\0\3\0\0\0\0\0\0@-\0\0\0/schemas/apps/totem/network-buffer-threshold\0\1\1", 95) = 95
writev(2, [{"nautilus", 8}, {": ", 2}, {"symbol lookup error", 19}, {": ", 2}, {"/usr/lib/nautilus/extensions-1.0/", 60}, {": ", 2}, {"undefined symbol: totem_interface_load_with_root", 48}, {"",
0}, {"", 0}, {"\n", 1}], 10) = 142
exit_group(127) = ?
Process 8621 detached

This is with totem-gstreamer 2.19.3-0ubuntu1
That's 100% reproducible.

I've rebuilt the package using ubuntu's sources and checked for this particular symbol. It is indeed compiled in a ".a" lib (libtotem_player.a from libtotem_player_la-totem-interface.o) but not in any shared ".so". This libtotem_player.a is bundled into two binaries (totem itself and a test app called test-properties-page). calls totem_interface_load_with_root() but is not compiled with the corresponding ".a". It can't work.

That symbol has to be put in either through libtotem_player_la-totem-interface.o or libtotem_player.a, or not called at all in there.

I've fixed the issue and submited a patch upstream. See bug #444564 in Gnome's bugzilla.
The patch is also attached. You need to restart autogen of course.

using caps will not make people read your comments, rather ignore what you are writing

I used caps only because i have already said that three-four times, but that bug is signed as a duplicate of this one yet.

Sebastien Bacher (seb128) wrote :

You sent no comment to the bug before using caps, that's not a way to behave, bug triager are trying to give an hand fixing bugs and there is no reason to use this tone even if you already wrote something on an another bug

bug #120447 is a duplicate, you commented on the wrong place, you added a comment on bug #120452 and you should have unmarked it duplicate, still not a reason to act the way you did on the bug

Ok, sorry. Anyway, how do I unmark a bug duplicate?
