Hi.
I've installed vlc.
But when I run vlc : no success. Error message below :

segmentation fault ( core dumped )

Thank you all

Did you google* what 'segmentation fault' means?

You should do some basic research on things before posting all your questions. Many can be easily solved by reading online.

If you can't find answers after doing some basic research, then post on the forum.

You will probably get more responses this way.

Just a friendly suggestion.

* or use your search engine of choice....

Here's some explanations regarding segmentation fault:

QUOTE
"Segmentation fault" means that you tried to access memory that you do not have access to.


QUOTE
Segmentation fault occurs when the program tries to do an illegal memory access, ie., a pointer accessing a NULL or amemory location not accessible to the process. ... Quite often the hardware will flag a "Segment violation" if the value in a pointer is NULL or outside the bounds of any legally allocated segment.

So, as this is a programming error, to fix this, think you need to find the line or lines of code that are causing this and modify them.

Compiled VLC .
A little complicated. Too many dependencies and I had to create symlink to libraries.
At a result a very good software. Perfect.

That's great news!

Any chance you can share the file with us?

It is not in a deb format.
I've compiled , instaled a lot of dependencies files and a lot of symlinks .
If installed in a deb file format it will do the segmentation fault as described above.
It requires a lot of dependency files , symlinks, a hard work . And a long time to compile.
When I was compiling , I had to install a lot of files, symlinks to libraries that are in a wrong place.
Every error that has appeared in the compilation , I had to do a google search and work on that.
I'm sorry for this.
Now, I know why the preinstalled deb file did not work .
It has dependency of a lot of libraries and symlinks.
