This can't be good...I built frozen-bubbles from portage and everything looked fine, but when I type frozen-bubble, it gives me this error:

[[ Frozen-Bubble-0.9.3 ]]

[SDL Init] Segmentation fault

I don't know what could be wrong, maybe I'm running the wrong bin file to start it?

I just wanted to "second" this - I have the very same problem. It used to work...

Are you running KDE? I'm running Gnome2 myself and have the same problem. However my girlfriend uses KDE on the same machine and Frozen Bubble works perfectly (and believe me, i would have known if it wasn't!) ;). For testing purpose i logged into KDE (same machine, same account, etc...) instead of Gnome and it worked...

it seems like Frozen Bubble doesn't like Gnome very much :(

if you run the game wihtout sound support does it work?
I can't play frozen bubble with sound in gnome2, don't have kde to try it.
It used to work.... but it is ok, cause sound in a classroom is a bad thing, and that is where most of my frozen bubbling happens ;)

Have you considered running it in GDB to try and pin down where the segfault is occuring? Then you could try fixing it / submitting a bug report. :-)

I had a fully functional frozen bubble install that was trashed by the accidental unmasking of Perl 5.8.0 in portage. I've since reverted my Perl, rebuilt all the Perl modules, and rebuilt SDL (libsdl, sdl-mixer, sdl-image, sdl-ttf). Now the game consistently reports the segfault outlined at the head of this thread. Using the no sound flags makes no difference.

I'm going to try generic i686 CFLAGS (currently -mcpu=athlon-xp -O3 -pipe) to see if that helps. If that doesn't, then I'll see if I can gdb the problem.

same problem here. I'm a n00b though so I've got no idea what's going on anyways.

My cflags are set to march=athlon-tbird -O3 -pipe, so that could be a problem, albeit it's never been a problem before.

I don't think GDB works on Perl programs... :?

My guess is perl 5.80 is b0rking it. If 5.80 is installed, try reverting back to 5.61 and seeing if that fixes it. If you have 5.61 installed, well, I dunno then.

I'm having the same problem. I think it happened after updating something last week. I had a perfectly working frozen-bubble, but now it just segfaults...

I will try reverting to an old version of perl...but i still have 5.6.1-r9...

Reverting Perl made no difference.

I have perl 5.6.1, never updated to 5.8.0 (to my knowledge ;-), and still have the segfault.

OK, on my my machine the fault occurs in libX11. Here's the end of the gdb output:

I haven't rebuilt anything with debugging symbols yet so I cannot be certain, but the problem does not seem to be with Perl SDL or libsdl.

Are there any really keen programmers out there wanting to tackle this?

So would remerging X solve the problem?

I don't suppose anyone has figured this out yet have they? I just emerged it (never having installed it before), and it dies on startup for me as well. I think I'm going to try unmerging all things sdl, then re-emerging them. I'll post again if that works.

well i tryed the mandrake rpm ( to see if it was a build time problem) and it still seg faults, so my guess is it is with the sdl-perl or someting

Perhaps something that has frozen-bubbles that actually works with no problems could post exactly what versions of the ebuilds they are using for all of the dependancies? I'm currently using the latest of everything in the stable portage tree.
