gmb crashes when selecting replaygain analysis
« on: March 27, 2011, 17:23:28 »
As it says in the title, everytime I try to use context menu 'replaygain analysis -> scan this file' gmb crashes. I tried running from terminal with "gmusicbrowser &>/tmp/output.log" but all that it writes to log is "analysing [6850] /media/mpoint/mp3/CMX/CMX - Aura/10 - Työt Ja Päivät.mp3" (that's the last line in log after crash). In terminal (after crash) it reads just "segmentation fault".

Yes that function is very unstable, I've been meaning to add "unstable" next to it.
The problem comes most probably from the glib perl bindings that has some bugs related to threads. I haven't had time to try to fix it yet :(

The solution currently is to use external tools to analyze the files, like mp3gain vorbisgain ...
