BUG - version 0.9.10.17.g4129e1c9 - linux desktop

Dear,

 

I have upgraded today (may 21 2014), via public repository, my linux desktop spotify to version 0.9.10.17.g4129e1c9 and encountered a bug.

 

Whenever a new song starts playing or I resume playing after I paused the song, my system freezes. I have started the program from the terminal and the following messages appear:

 

08:52:37.582 E [watchdog.cpp:171                ] Deadlock detected (Thread: gui)
08:52:58.599 E [watchdog.cpp:191                ] The deadlock was a lie! (gui, 25017)

The first line appears moments (~3 seconds) after starting a new song. My system freezes until the moment the latter line appears.

I also see a popup of some kind for maybe 1-2 frames after my system unfreezes. Looks like it is a new feature of spotify trying to send a figure of the album art to the systems (ubuntu 12.04) notification centre that makes it freeze.

 

Release:    12.04
Kernel: 3.2.0-43-generic

Spotify: 0.9.10.17.g4129e1c9

It may have to do with the new feature to use system notifications.

 

Try starting Spotify like this from the terminal, and see if the freezing stops:

 

spotify --ui.track_notifications_enabled=false

I can't listen to music with spotify if after every song (3-4minutes) it freezes my computer for 20 seconds+. This is not acceptable, I expect a fix, or at least the acknlodgement of the bug with a workaround so I can use the program again. If not, well then you lost a long term (2+years) paying customer...

I am having a problem with the newest update too.. by not being able to start spotify.

 

spotify: /lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libc.so.6: version `GLIBC_2.14' not found (required by spotify)

With Spotify 0.9.10.17.g4129e1c.78-1 on Debian stable/Wheezy amd64 with libc6 from testing/Jessie it runs fine. Though apt-pinning is not for everybody …

… but this might get you started.

 

Spotify deserves credit for making their software available on the Linux platform through package repositories, but I would be glad to have a build that eliminates the need for apt-pinning in Debian stable/Wheezy.

Thanks for link, tried this solution and it worked. I installed libc from jessie/testing. I did NOT update any other package than libc. (And related packages to the libc).

I have the exact same issue here (freezing on playback). As a premium customer I would appreciate a reply from spotify addressing the issue.

Solution!

Thanks, that fixed it for me. Obviously I would like a fix from Spotify (so we still can have notifications), but for now this is great. Thank you olejon.

Great :-)

 

If everyone with this problem reported som basic system information, it could maybe help the developers to identify what causes this. I have not encountered this bug on Xubuntu 12.04, Ubuntu GNOME 14.04 or Xubuntu 14.04 (all 64-bit, of course).
