pykaraoke locks up hard?

  • Ever since I started using it, pykaraoke has locked up on me hard about every other time I tried to play a MP3+G track.  Recently I had to reinstall my operating system (Fedora Core 12), and now it locks up every time.  I have to use "kill -9" to stop it; a normal SIGTERM does nothing.  I tried running it with strace, but that mysteriously just makes both strace and python suspend themselves after the song list is read.

    Do you have any idea how I can go about debugging why pykaraoke locks up hard for me?

    I haven't heard of this one before. Could you try running the CDG player standalone so that we can find out whether it is the GUI or the CDG player please? Run it from the command line as follows:

    pycdg.py songfilename.cdg

    Also what CPU are you using?

    Thanks.
