zombie phplay

Hi and a very happy new year… small irritating problem follows… i’m using
ESS-Solo-1 soundcard under qnx rtp… now randomly when i exit phplay, i
can’t start it again… some diagnostics follow-- * sin shows phplay thread
to be reply blocked. * whenever playback of some mp3 stops (upon completion
or explicitely) then it shows message “pthread_join of mpegaudio thread
failed: invalid argument” in console from where i stated it.

the process becomes zombie and NO signal can kill it !!
the only way i can get it started again is reboot :frowning:

will somebody please explain me what’s happening… (anybody from QSSL tuned
in…) seems to me that mpegaudio.so is buggy and doesn’t terminate properly
ie it doesn’t reply to phplay message before it terminates its thread…

any help???

Keep Smiling

The new phplay and plugins with “Patch A” have several fixes you will like.
I know this is of little help as Patch A is long overdue.
Sorry,
Jim

Hope so… I am optimistic

Why?? The qssl guys are already putting in VERY GOOD WORK. I am a developer
and I know what it takes to make a product of this level… I wonder if I can
be of any help to them…

Many thanks for the information… BTW do you have any information if they
are updating QNET in Patch A and making it reliable… it is VERY unstable…
a “find /net/remote/” exits in 5 mins with message “No route to host” while
everything is alright… i can telnet/ftp to/from both machines… but they
disapper from each other’s /net

We (QNX R&D) run the Patch A QNET on everything. I have not had a problem
for
a long time.

Can you please specify from where can i download the “QNET Patch A”… i had
a BAD experience downloading the whole pr-release Patch A. So can I download
and install “Only” the qnet update… I am developing a controls software for
a robotics project of my institute.

Many Thanks

I just wanted to note that I have done lots of file transfers with QNET.
Also done
some remote device access for media devices including DVD over QNET.
No problems, but I recognize this is a minor fraction of QNET capabilities.
I do expect the Patch A QNET will be improved in other areas as well.

You will have to wait for Patch A for any binaries,

Jim
