Rhythmbox crashed when I added to a large Play Queue
Status in rhythmbox package in Ubuntu:
Rhythmbox just crashed on my Ubuntu 14.04 system on a Dell GX620. The Dell
mimitower has the integrated sound and 4 GB RAM.
The action that apparently provoked the crash was: I dragged and dropped
three files from the Music list (in the main pane) onto the Play Queue icon (in
the left pane). It was playing (not paused) at the time. Earlier in the day, I
had pointed rhythmbox to my audio directory (in Preferences). RB had finished
adding the tracks to the Music list. But afterward, I had made a few changes in
some of the subdirectories of my audio directory.
At the time, Chromium was using a great deal of RAM, and tabs were
open which had played video with sound.
After the music stopped, apport displayed that there was not enough
free memory to analyze and report the crash. System Monitor showed
over 2 GB free.
I realize my usage is a little extreme:
- System monitor showed the rhythmbox process was using 255 MB of memory
before apport killed it.
- My audio directory contains over 50,000 tracks
- There were 125 tracks in the Play Queue at the time. I had dragged and
dropped them there, one at a time or a few at a time, from the Music list.
