I know there are plenty of questions like this across the Internet but no fix for this seems to work for me.
I'm having an issue where VLC segfaults on startup (NOT when opening a file). No other console output is available.
sudo apt-get install intel-microcode.
sudo apt-get install libgme-dev,
- Upgrading all packages.
- Reinstalling VLC.
...and a variety of other commands, such as
vlc -I skins
/usr/lib/vlc/vlc-cache-gen -f usr/lib/vlc/plugins
vlc -I qt4 --reset-config --reset-plugins-cache
Of course, I tried restarting the computer after all of this. Nothing solved the segfault or even gave a hint of progress.
- Debian Jessie 64 bit
- Intel Core i5-6600
- GeForce GTX 960
- VLC version 2.2.1
The stack trace can be found here.
I found some articles/forums referring to the use of
gdb to get a backtrace or some more information, but it just gives me
no debugging symbols found.
