Reporting bugs against a LinuxSampler (sub)project:

  • Check if your bug has already been reported.
  • If a related bug doesn't already exist, report a new bug (you have to create a Bugzilla account for this, if you don't have one already).

    Self-registration has been disabled due to constant spam bot attacks. Please contact either Christian or Andreas for letting them create a Bugzilla account for you.

  • Write full and complete bug reports so we can fix your problem as soon as possible.
  • Do NOT send us copyright protected instrument files unless you've got the permission to do so! Better try to recreate a tiny instrument file that reproduces your problem.
  • In case LinuxSampler crashes, we need a back trace of the crash to be able to investigate the crash. To generate a back trace, compile LinuxSampler with debugging symbols turned on like this:
    CXXFLAGS="-O0 -g3" ./configure && make
    You don't even have to install the compiled sampler. You can now launch it like this:
    libtool --mode=execute gdb --arg src/linuxsampler
    Then type
    and the sampler should now be running as usual. Use it, reproduce the crash, and as soon as the crash happened type
    and copy & paste the back trace printed on the console in your bug report on this website.
  • In case of crashes and compilation errors, please also mention the precise compiler (i.e. gcc, clang) and the compiler's precise version in your bug report.
