This is a problem I've been having since before the 1.2
release. I was hoping 1.2 would fix it.
When I first installed Cinelerra it came up fine, and I
was able to play with it a bit. However, every
subsequent time it fail to start. The splash screen
comes up and the progress bar completes its start up
routine, and then the app aborts. When run from the
command line I get:
[dviljoen@milhouse dviljoen]$ cinelerra
Cinelerra 1.2.0 Tue May 11 00:23:39 PDT 2004 (C)2004

The end of my strace -f looks like this:
[pid 3509] futex(0xa61494, FUTEX_WAKE, 2147483647) = 0
[pid 3509] rt_sigprocmask(SIG_UNBLOCK, [ABRT], NULL,
8) = 0
[pid 3509] tgkill(3509, 3509, SIGABRT) = 0
[pid 3509] --- SIGABRT (Aborted) @ 0 (0) ---
[pid 3510] <... select resumed> ) = ?
ERESTARTNOHAND (To be restarted)
[pid 3510] +++ killed by SIGABRT +++
I'm going to attach a full strace -f of the startup.
Incidentally, I've tried deleting my .bcast directory.
This makes no difference.
Cinelerra exhibits the same behavior on my Dell P3-750
laptop, and my home-grown AMD Duron 1.2 Desktop. Both
are running Fedora FC2 (but I experienced the same
behavior before upgrading from FC1).
