I know nothing about *kwave, *but to me this does not look like a program that crashes. It simply stops after ouputting some texts.

The first two lines look like a warning I have seen these in threads here earlier, but do not know how fatal this is.
The third line may be more serious (because of the ! at the end), but the program nicely continues giving some information about itself and it’s programmer.
And then it stops normal.

Did you check the return code with

echo $?

immediatly after the execution? This would give an idea if the program itself thinks it stopped normaly or not.

Tanks, I don’t know if it “crash” in the “proper way”, but after the messages nothing appear, in the other my laptop, dell latitude e6xxx, tumbleweed,kde484 appear a windows where you can use the program…

lorenza@linux-yhf6:~> echo $?
0
lorenza@linux-yhf6:~>

Well, to get proper help, you should describe yout problem as good as possible. And describing a problem normaly means three things:
1: what did you do,
2: what did you expect to happen,
3: what happened instead.
You did do 1 and 3, but you forget to mention 2. Instead you jumped to a conclusion. A crash is when the kernel kicks the program out because it behaves against it’s rules, like accessing memeory it is not allowed (segment faults and the like).

Here the program just stops. It even reports to you that it did not make an error stop (return code 0, I hope you followed my instructions cheking this immediatly after the execution, no other statements between the two), but that may be due to lazy programing. I still think that the lines.

may have some clue. But someone with more knowledge about DBUS then me is needed here.

Also, did you notice there is a special Tumbleweed subforum here. I personaly would have tried there.

OTOH it looks as a multimedia problem also, thus we have a Multimedia subforum.

But please do not start posting this now everywhere. No double posting please :wink:

1: what did you do,
2: what did you expect to happen,
3: what happened instead.
ok,
1=I installed kwave on my acer aspire one D255 and on my dell latitude
2=I launch kwave on my dell latitude and everythig goes well,a window with commands appear and I can operate on it, if I launch kwave on my acer aspire one D255 I expect that the windows with commands where I can operate will appear.
3=if I launch kwave on my acer aspire one D255 the window with commands where I can operate don’t appear, I expect it have to appear like in my dell latitude.

I attached in the pervious post the message from my acer, later I will attach the message from my dell, if it could be useful,

Here the program just stops. It even reports to you that it did not make an error stop (return code 0, I hope you followed my instructions cheking this immediatly after the execution
yes, I copied the command “echo $?” opened konsole, wrte kwave, return, pasted echo $?, return

But please do not start posting this now everywhere. No double posting please :wink:
may be multimedia, but is there any way to “crosspost” a thread that hve a multidiscipline way to be solved?

> for kde4 the only I found had been kwave, installed

i’m feeling generous so i thought i would install kwave and see if i
could duplicate your problem…

but, i went to YaST Software Management and find no kwave to install (in
the ‘normal’ [oss, non-oss, update and packman] repos)…

so, i wonder where you got it? what version you got? and how you
installed it? (i’m thinking the problem may not be with kwave, but
instead maybe the install got hammered… ? i wonder if you installed
from (unknown) someone’s home on software.opensuse.org??

so there i learned it is in KDE Extra repo and i just installed kwave
0.8.6-1.1 onto my 11.4 using YaST Software Management, and it seems to
work ok (that is i can see windows of stuff i can click on…also, i
selected “record” and mic as source and i can see the volume meter move
up and down as i speak…and loudly it moves into the red zone…so, it
seems to work ok…at least it does not crash…

so, how and from where did you install what version?

What does DistroWatch write about YOU?: http://tinyurl.com/SUSEonDW

I think you now better wait what comes out of this place. Moving it around would confuse people. But next time think before you post.

And yes, you using Tumbleweed in a non Tumbleweed forum, we are not that sure which repos you use. Thus DD’s question.

Thank you :-), your unselfishness will make you worthy of memory here and in the heavenly kingdom :-))).

I thought,:slight_smile: and my thought was: it s a non working hardware so post in hardware… evidently it was wrong and it ought to be it is a multimedia non working hardware…
I don’t love particularly kwave, I’m only looking for some software to test my microphone on linux, >>>>I also installed krecord(it is for kde3) but I have the same problem, no window appear.

You did not post the output of the other system, which indeed shows that my remarks about the three lines with warnings were futile.
And knowing that both systems have the same output (but I did not check every line/character, I leave that to you) I can understand why you think this is about hardware. But as you did not post that in the first place, how dud you think that anybody could folllow your strain of thought?

i asked how you installed kwave, and now i ask how you installed krecord…

did you receive any notification of success, failure or errors as a
result of the installs?

i ask both because maybe that is the reason for the failure…

or maybe both problems are due to Tumbleweed…

don’t i recall that LOTS of 12.1 folks had Tumbleweed/KDE problems in
the last week?

did your Skype mic not working, and these problems with application
installed to check your mic show up lately?


dd

both by yast add/remove software, the standard way in suse

no notifications during install of both

I didn’t check before if my mic worked, Iinstalled skype and discovered that mic don’t works, then installed kwave and krecord to check with another software the mic, becouse maybe skype could have a strange behaviour.

  1. there are sveral ways to instrall software, even in openSUSE. The most standard to me are zypper and YaST > Software > Software magement. Also the repo used might be of inetrest.

  2. my main conclusion is however that you do not have a kwave problem at all. You have a micro that is not functioning for whatever reason.

yes the way was YaST > Software > Software magement

The problem is that kwave doesn’t works in acer D255, but it works in dell latitude, so we are in the surgery situation like “the operation success but the patient died”:slight_smile: , I dont know where the problem is, but a problem exist:)
now I found a way to test my micrphone in linux without kwave, with “arecord -d 10 record.wav”, found here simple and very useful :), so the problem with kwave is weaker:), thanks, ciao , Pier
