Description

Hi,

I just compiled from git
GNU Smalltalk version 3.2.2-6baa9ad

I'm unable to launch gst-browser. I attach strace.log as there is no output coming up on the command line.

Information about my box:

To get the "real" gdb backtrace, do "handle SIGSEGV noprint" before "r".

Thanks!

Hi again,

I'm sure I did not understand what you meant, since what I get is this, which is nothing:

gentoo ~ # gdb gst-browser

Program exited normally.

So the problem is not the SIGSEGV, which is properly handled. It is that somehow the browser is not started correctly.
