i'm getting an interesting effect. I used recordemydesktop many times without big problems. Now i got a secound monitor and want to use it to record the screen only on monitor two. This works so far but i get an error alwasy i touch the bottom of the secound monitor. :) Only the bottom of the secound on. Its funny to me and i don't know why this happens.
It happens with and without gtk-recordmydesktop.
I starte it like this:
recordmydesktop -fps 5 -x 1280 -width 1280 -height 1024
and got this error:
Buffer size adjusted to 4096 from 4096 frames.
Opened PCM device hw:0,0
Recording on device hw:0,0 is set to:
1 channels at 22050Hz
Segmentation fault (core dumped)
Well, obviously some value gets out of range, but I've never used a
dual screen setup myself, so I can't be sure.
Can you post a backtrace of the crash here?
P.S. I assume you are using 0.3.5.1, right?
~$ gdb /location/of/recordmydesktop
(gdb) set args -fps 5 -x 1280 -width 1280 -height 1024
Then make the program crash and type on gdb:
here is the output. I hope thats what you want.
And yes, i'm using the newest version 0.3.5.1. I can try a older Version if it helps you?
>> here is the output. I hope thats what you want.
Sorry, I forgot to mention that I want this output in a non stripped
binary. Can you please perform these steps on the directory of
the source tarball?
Just download the tarball, unpack and run ./configure && make.
Then cd to src/ and run
~$ gdb ./recordmydesktop
and then the rest of the steps.
>> I can try a older Version if it helps you?
This won't be needed.
ok.. here is the output again.
Thx for help
Great, I believe it's fixed now. I've replicated it,
as the bug applies whenever --full-shots is used
(always with compiz) and the starting x and y isn't 0.
I've had the same issue in 0.3.5 with regular (non --full-shots)
captures. It seems I was a bit careless in that release as I
completely forgot to take offsets into account.
Anyway, can you get a snapshot from CVS and verify that
this problem no longer appears?
Hey John, you did a great job. :)
The CVS works perfekt. I tested it on the command line and with gtk-recordmydesktop. No crashes anymore.
Thx again and keep up the good work.
If you need a tester in the future send me a message..
