Centos Spotify Segmentation Fualt

Hi all, I've been running spotify on centos 6.3 for quite a few months now. This morning I started getting segmentation faults when it started up.

 

Tried the usual deleting $HOME/.cache/spotify and $HOME/.config/spotify to no avail.

 

Tried running with the -offline switch and got spotify to open but it crashed whenever I went online,

 

Tried unticking the view people and the other online view thing (cnat remember what it was) but still seg faulted when I went online.

 

Tried re-installing using this script provided here http://sanders3d.wordpress.com/2012/12/29/install-spotify-on-centos-6-3/

 

Still getting segmentation errors (tried the deletion of config/cache files).the -offline switch no longer seems to work: -

has anybody (it would be great if spotify, who I am paying for this service had any ideas!) got *any* ideas?

 

I event tried using spotify in the browser ( firefox ) but got the message that the browser was not supported ( dev fail there methinks )

 

thanks

Unfortunately, the linux client is only a preview, so not officially supported by Spotify. (although some of the linux guys are really helpful!)

I'm not really what the issue is, Segmentation fault is not the most usefull of errors!

 

What version of firefox do you have? Also, what version of flash? 

If you have it, Google Chrome is always a safe bet for the web player!

If you want to give the native client a chance, you might try the installer at  https://github.com/leamas/spotify-make We recently checked some CentOS/RHES related patches, there seem to be som successful users out there. Note the feedback thread (link on github)
