[lv.visual_buffer_get_data] Warning: assertion `buffer != NULL’ failed
Illegal instruction

Same problem here. It seems that packman version is faulty. I have emailed them (with the error message) but no luck so far.

plenty of other choices to go at though.

Alright guys, what is my problem?

Segmentation fault

Their problem was that they were trying to run it on a machine without SSE2 instructions or something like that. mlt x86-32 package from Packman disabled such instructions long ago.
Your problem… no idea, but unrelated to the first one. You would need to obtain a backtrace for us to be able to know more. While other people tries to reproduce it, you could start to give a list of related packages versions (mlt, etc.)

I confused it with OpenShot :-p No idea if it uses MLT, but everything else doesn’t changes.

Thank you for the reply. A backtrace or at least a meaningful error message was what I was trying to create by launching from the terminal, not the Kicker menu icon. But what I quote above is all I get. Is there some secret option to add to create more output? PS: When I do it from my Danish user account “Segmentation fault” is translated to “Segmentfejl” so I guess that part is from the OS not the program.

A backtrace is obtained running

gdb $(which openmovieeditor)

and from there


which will end saying “Program received signal SIGSEGV, Segmentation fault.”
and from there


That will provide the “backtrace”

That shows the problem is in frei0r (or in a bad use of frei0r).

That’s at least in my computer… I have my own frei0r version, perhaps in yours it shows a different problem. I’m going to look at it…

I removed the curves plugin and saw another problem… I suppose the same one that you have. As a workaround try installing gmerlin-gavl.

It seems the first problem it’s not specific of my frei0r package. So you will also need to remove the curves plugin (/usr/lib(64)/frei0r-1/ until upstream fixes gmerlin.

Wow RedDwarf, thank you for your detailed reply. The output of my backtrace is similar to yours but not identical:

#11 0x0000000000000000 in ?? ()

I then installed gmerlin-gavl - whatever it is - an now OpenMovieEditor starts!

**Thanks a lot! **

I didn’t try using it yet (it’s late) but I was planning to since I just bought Crafting Digital Media by Daniel James and that program is the only video edition software besides the simple Avidemux the book talks about.
