Debugging SegfaultsΒΆ

If you experience a crash/segfault or hang (especially in MC) you can run gdb on python to find the crash or hang. You can attach a debugger to the running mc process like this:

$ ps aux | grep mpf
jan       9678 12.4  0.3 1082068 127304 pts/2  SNl+ 23:17   0:06 /usr/bin/python3 /usr/local/bin/mpf mc
jan       9760 37.0  0.1 571368 56660 pts/3    Sl+  23:17   0:01 /usr/bin/python3 /usr/local/bin/mpf game -X

In this example 9678 is the pid of MC and 9760 is the pid of MPF. You can then attach gdb:

$ sudo gdb python3 9678
(gdb) thread apply all bt
(gdb) thread apply all py-bt

Please send us the complete output of gdb. That will help us to figure out the problem.
