Package: mplayer
Version: 2:1.0~rc4.dfsg1+svn33713-5
Severity: normal

Segmentation fault when running
$ mplayer -pphelp

Bug exist in version SVN-r33713-4.6, and in current upstream SVN. I have filed the bug to mplayer also.


Starting program: /usr/bin/mplayer -pphelp
[Thread debugging using libthread_db enabled]

Program received signal SIGSEGV, Segmentation fault.

This patch seems to fix the issue:

<     {"pphelp", &pp_help, CONF_TYPE_PRINT_INDIRECT, CONF_NOCFG, 0, 0, NULL},
>     {"pphelp", &pp_help, CONF_TYPE_PRINT, CONF_NOCFG, 0, 0, NULL},
