Guest_6Does anyone have experience with VLC crashing Lubuntu?20:26
wxlwhich version?20:27
wxlold huh :/20:28
Guest_6I installed using synaptic package manager, completely uninstalled and installed via terminal.  Same crash result.20:28
Guest_618.04.3 LTS20:29
wxlso you're just opening vlc on its own and not opening a particular file?20:30
wxli see no bugs here (limited to those tagged with bionic) that include such a description20:30
Guest_6It will use up the entire swap file, crash, with the error message that is has run out of memory20:31
wxllaunchpad i hate you XD20:31
wxli've not heard of anyone having problems with newer versions, either. might be better to go with a newer version anyways.20:32
wxlis there a crash report in /var/crash?20:33
wxldo you get any output when running in terminal?20:33
Guest_6running vlc from terminal gives an error and goes on to say it is ignoring it20:33
wxlwhich error?20:34
Guest_6where is that logged?20:34
wxlit's not necessarily logged. the output itself may be the only indication of the error.20:34
Guest_6well if I start it up I will have to wait about 5 minutes for it to crash before I can back to you20:35
wxlit takes 5 minutes to crash? with you just sitting there idling?20:35
Guest_6yes, watching a solid HD light20:35
wxlare you limited on memory?20:35
Guest_6on boot I only use ~300m20:36
Guest_6out of 1.5Gb20:36
Guest_6HTOP reveals that it slowly uses all the RAM and then the swap20:37
wxlyeah it's weird that i can't find any similar bug report20:38
Guest_6I'll run it to get the crash msg.  brb in about 5 minutes20:38
Guest_6(vlc:2555) dbind-warning**  Error retrieving accessibility bus address: org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.ServiceUnknown:  The name org.a11y.Bus was not provided by any .service files  Qapplication:  invalid style override passed, ignoring it.20:50
Guest_6that was the error in terminal20:50
wxlyeah sadly that's not that big of a deal20:51
Guest_6After about 5 minutes I get vlc terminates because of memory20:51
wxlis there an error in /var/crash?20:51
Guest_6let me look20:51
Guest_6uh...yeah.  Its huge.  How do I post that here?20:52
ubottupastebinit is the command-line equivalent of !pastebin - Command output, or other text can be redirected to pastebinit, which then reports an URL containing the output - To use pastebinit, install the « pastebinit » package from a package manager - Simple usage: command | pastebinit20:53
wxlthere may be some private memory information in there20:53
wxlso you might not want to20:53
wxlyou can file a bug with it though that will set it to private20:54
Guest_6This is a fairly fresh install20:54
Guest_6I don't see anything upon first glance that would compromise this PC20:55
wxlyou could do `ubuntu-bug /var/crash/filename`20:55
Guest_6installing pastebin20:58
Guest_6Here is what I got using your last suggestion:21:02
Guest_6(apport-gtk:1776): dbind-WARNING **: 16:00:11.861: Error retrieving accessibility bus address: org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.ServiceUnknown: The name org.a11y.Bus was not provided by any .service filesGtk-Message: 16:00:14.441: GtkDialog mapped without a transient parent. This is discourage21:02
Guest_6the vlc memory error even though I have rebooted and not started vlc21:03
Guest_6I've used VLC for years without a problem.  This is out of left field for me.21:03
Guest_6why would the "ubuntu-bug" command cause the same memory error as the starting vlc?21:04
Guest_6Thank you for your time21:11
Guest_6I will be back after I play around with it a bit more tomorrow.21:11
