Re: 0.8 Breaks CR2?


You probably saw my comment on the bug but I had no problems importing and viewing the picture you attached to the bug. When you find a picture like this that causes F-Spot to crash, is it reproducible every time with a fresh database (running F-spot with basedir/photodir parameters using some clean location)?

It's pretty simple and it would great to have someone who can easily reproduce the bug trying to debug it.

Basically you just follow the steps here:

Once you can cleanly make it then you are ready to open the solution in Monodevelop and hit the debug button (or you can do it from the menu but I don't have it in front of me to tell you the specifics -- I think F5 will do it but I'm not sure).

You'll most likely want to modify a few project settings for "MainApp" so that it runs in a terminal window, waits for key press on exit and also uses the --debug parameter.

Then it's just a matter of trying what doesn't work and seeing where it fails. :)

I would be more than happy to be in IRC at some point that works for both of us if you want to get started. I'm happy to help people get going -- or at least point in the right direction.

I had considered that, but all of my images have the right date, and I can get through 100 images and then come up with one that stops it cold; try the one mentioned in the bugzilla bug. I'm not even importing from my camera, just my collection on the HD.

My config is to always shoot JPEG+RAW; I can't think of anything that would cause the issue being different between photos. I'd have to assume it's something like a value in the tag that changes. Maybe something to do with exposure time or the colour profile, or something with otherwise wildly variable data.

Could you describe your debug process a little? I wouldn't mind getting my hands dirty.
