View Full Version : [ubuntu] VLC Memory Corruption

July 2nd, 2009, 12:02 AM
Hey, all,

I am having a problem with VLC. It was working a couple of days ago, and I am not sure what I did to kill it.

It just plain won't open. I can't right click a file and do Open With..., or open it directly, or anything.

So I removed it completely (including configuration files) and reinstalled. Twice.

I also deleted my .vlc folder.

When I run from the command line, the following kinda sticks out to me:

[00000001] main libvlc debug: translation test: code is "C"
*** glibc detected *** vlc: malloc(): memory corruption: 0x087907f8 ***
======= Backtrace: =========
Any help would be Awesome!

This is version 0.9.9a, and it happened right after I tried to add some French streaming channel thing. I wish I knew the site I was getting the info from so I could post it.

Can anyone help?

Thanks much if you can :)

vlc --reset-config --reset-plugins-cache -vv
