I recently tried to start up Rosegarden again, haven't used it for some
time, but it crashed with a segfault right after the opening picture.
I watched the messages in my terminal trying to figure out what went wrong.
I then decided to uninstall ladspa-swh-plugins using Fedora's package
After that Rosegarden started working again.
I first removed whysynth-dssi which also didn't work anymore, and also
produced some warning message in Rosegardens startup messages, but that
seems to be an unrelated problem. After re-installing the (still not
working) whysynth-dssi, Rosegarden was still functioning normally.
Now I am trying to find out: is something wrong with rosegarden and/or is
ladspa-swh-plugins broken on my Linux Fedora 23 system?
If ladspa-swh-plugins is broken, then shouldn't Rosegarden notice this
without crashing with a segfault?
Ideally, yes, Rosegarden should handle misbehaving plugins better.
There are updates for both whysynth-dssi and ladspa-swh-plugins in
Fedora's updates-testing repo.
Could you try them out and leave positive or negative feedback at
bodhi, if possible?
