[apport] vlc crashed with SIGSEGV in wxBaseArrayPtrVoid::Insert()

Bug #103741 reported by VictorArguelles on 2007-04-06
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
vlc (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

Binary package hint: vlc

I was playing some wmv files and there didn't seem to be any problem. I turned off the machine, and when I booted this morning, apport told me it had crashed. Perhaps it didn't unload from memory when I closed it last night before shutting the machine down, as I've seen that happening in Windows (vlc not unloading from memory when you close it, but that might have nothing to do with anything).

Never been able to reproduce this one.

Upstream has moved away from wx, so, upstream will not fix it.

I think we can close this report in that case.

This bug was fixed in the package vlc - 0.9.2-1ubuntu1

vlc (0.9.2-1ubuntu1) intrepid; urgency=low

  * New Upstream Release, exception granted by
      - dktrkranz, norsetto, Hobbsee (via irc). LP: #270404

  Changes done in ubuntu:

  * add libxul-dev to build-depends
  * make sure that vlc is build against libxul in configure. This doesn't
    change anything in the package, but makes it more robust if building
    in an 'unclean' chroot or when modifying the package.
  * debian/control: make Vcs-* fields point to the motumedia branch
  * add libx264-dev and libass-dev to build-depends
    LP: #210354, #199870
  * actually enable libass support by passing --enable-libass to configure
  * enable libdca: add libdca-dev to build depends and --enable-libdca
  * install the x264 plugin.

  Changes already in the pkg-multimedia branch in debian:

  * don't install usr/share/vlc/mozilla in debian/mozilla-plugin-vlc.install
  * new upstream .desktop file now registers flash video mimetype LP: #261567
  * add Xb-Npp-Applications to mozilla-plugin-vlc
  * remove duplicate entries in debian/vlc-nox.install

vlc (0.9.2-1) experimental; urgency=low
