I’m very fond of audacious player (audacious2 to be precise) – light-weight, fast, and follows the WinAmp (2) path. Neat 🙂
Few days ago I’ve got the following error message on audacious start-up:
** (audacious2:2348): CRITICAL **: playlist_entry_get_filename: assertion `entry != NULL' failed Segmentation fault
Reinstallation and re-configuration didn’t help; but the fix is quite trivial:
- Start the audacious as root: $ sudo audacious2 ; this should work just fine, unlike when starting as normal user.
- Add anything to the playlist, just so it’s not empty.
- Close the player.
- Now start the player as normal user; all should work now.
That’s it. Hope this helps!
