I've uninstalled XBMC a couple of times, and removed the /home/x/.xbmc folder etc., but everytime I add a new source -> "Scan for new content", it freezes and eventually crashes. Using default theme, clean install with no settings modified.

Crash log
Bump. Sorry, this is still not working.. my hair is almost gone :-S
I'm having the same problem! First I thought there might be a problem w/ the scraper, but then the forum would have had several postings a bout that, I think...

I don't know how tot delete my library to start from scratch. Anyway this is (the last part) of my crash log in my home directory.

############ END XBMC CRASH LOG #############
As you can see XBMC crashed immediately on scanning my movie dir.

P.S. I use the SVN version from yesterday.
We need you to install gdb so we can get a backtrace.

I'd like to try that, but what is GDB and how do I install it (is it in Ubuntu's repo's?). Smile

P.S. If you mean the Gnu Debugger: that appears to be already installed on my Linux box. Smile
Google is your friend... And yes it is in ubuntu's repo!
Used this tutorial: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Backtrace. Got a huge text file w/ GDB output in it. Dunno if you want me to post the complete txt. Anyway, these are the alast few lines:
g symbols from /usr/lib/libxcb.so.1...(no debugging symbols found)...done.
Loaded symbols for /usr/lib/libxcb.so.1
Reading symbols from /lib/libuuid.so.1...(no debugging symbols found)...done.
Loaded symbols for /lib/libuuid.so.1
Reading symbols from /lib/libwrap.so.0...(no debugging symbols found)...done.

Reading symbols from /usr/lib/libsndfile.so.1...(no debugging symbols found)...done.

Hope this helps.
No, that does not help.

Just install gdb and then when it crashes the crashreport it generates will have the necessary details.

Please read: http://wiki.xbmc.org/?title=HOW-TO_submi...Bug_Report
Ooops. The link you posted is about posting a bug on the bugtracker. From a user point of view: I hate the bug tracker. It's like throwing your question/problem into a well 10.000 fathems deep. I.e.: never to be found again. I'm awfully sorry, but I've yet to get a reasonable solution or workaround from a bug report. Posting in a forum w/ experienced users and developers, however, did alway work for me. Smile

Anyway, I did make the bug report (ticket No. 10615). But I'll post the needed files (log, crash report, backtrace output from DBG) in a zip file here too. It can be dowloded from here.

Hope this helps.
No, the link I posted also explains the crash report:

Crash Report

If XBMC has crashed, there are good odds that a crash report is available. How these are handled is platform dependent.
The file will be in your user's home directory or the working directory if XBMC was launched from a terminal. It will be named "xbmc_crashlog-[DATE]-[TIME].log" and contain some system information at the top, followed by a stack trace and the contents of xbmc.log. If you didn't have debugging enabled at the time, please enable it and recreate the problem. This feature was added in SVN revision 22194 and relies on the gnu debugger GDB being installed to work.
FYI, just pastebin it!
Thanks for the Pastebin tip. Didn't know that. Anyway said crashlog IS in the rar file that I uploaded to 4shared. And I pasted the last bit of it in reply #3 in this topic. Didn't the last line (saying: "Xbmc crash log") ring a bell? Or are you making a little joke? Rolleyes

My xbmc crash log in pastebin: http://pastebin.com/cW9CDc9V
I don't want to goto 4shared.

The log on pastebin does not show the stack still. Did you cut that?
I'm sorry. I must have posted the wrong crash log. Thank you for trying to help. I hope this is a good one: http://pastebin.com/EfRR6Lga
When you say you use the SVN version does that mean you compiled yourself? Is that trunk or dharma? Did you do a distclean first? More details.
