View Full Version : [ubuntu] RecordMyDesktop crashed

September 2nd, 2010, 09:40 AM
Was making a screenrecording on Lucid Lynx using the latest RecordMyDesktop. After several minutes the program crashed saying there was a segmentation fault. Found this in dmesg:
[ 508.181578] recordmydesktop[1572]: segfault at ac57a468 ip 08051ed6 sp aed7e1c0 error 6 in recordmydesktop[8048000+16000]
Is this somehow related to the fact that I am using Compiz or that I run Ubuntu Lucid Lynx + RMD + Compiz under the latest VirtualBox?
