Default KAudioCreator - Stopped Working

Some time in the last three months (last time I bought a new CD!),
KAudioCreator has stopped working on my system, Running from a shell
gives the following:

*** glibc detected *** kaudiocreator: malloc(): memory corruption:
0x081ccb38 ***

... etc.

How can I troubleshoot this? I've tried re-emerging, revdep-rebuild
(doesn't rebuild anything), re-emerging kdemultimedia-kioslaves just in
case, and now I'm out of ideas.

Thanks all,

Paul

I believe this is called a "bug".

Quite a serious one actually and the corruption is happening in
kaudiocreator's heap. Assuming your environment and CFLAGS are sane, I
would try looking for a workaround. Perhaps the memory corruption is
triggered by some code that you can remove via USE flags. Remove all
USE flags for that package, recompile and see what happens.

I doubt you will have much luck, all the USE flags are for useful stuff
and chances are you'll want them.

I'd file a bug at bugs.gentoo.org with the output you have. With luck
some dev will ask for more info and tell you how to get it in an effort
to track it down.

You could also use a different app, it's not like kaudiocreator is
software with a totally unique purpose

In your $HOME/.kde/share/config directory, search for a file or file(s)
called something like kaudiocreatorrc and perhaps similar files (I do not
have it so I do not know if it perhaps uses several config files, they'll
be easily identified by name, though), and rename them. Run kbuildsycoca,
then try to start kaudiocreator again.

If that doesn't help, try renaming the directory
$HOME/.kde/share/apps/kaudiocreator, if it exists, and try again.

If it's still not working, my last resort would be to file a bug.

Anno.

Wow, well done that man! Deleting the rc made it start again. Now I wish
I'd renamed it so I could have a look inside. Perhaps worth recovering
from backups in order to file a bug. My mp3 path has changed recently,
perhaps that did it.

Meanwhile though, following Alan's suggestion I've discovered the
command line ripper abcde, and actually prefer it. Recommended!

Thanks both,
Paul

I got bitten by broken config files often enough in the early KDE 3.x days,
especially on minor version changes. It has gotten much better since 3.3 or
so though, I'm actually a bit suprised... Also, changing from SuSE on
reiserfs to gentoo on xfs helped big time, no hard resets necessary anmore,
and if they are, xfs is able to cope. ReiserFS would pretty regularly mess
up my config files.

Yeah, it's a simple and neat little thing. I use it, too.

And thank you for writing back to say it works, too often, people just
quietly stop posting when some suggestion did it.

Anno.
