    VLC installation core dumps on fresh Fedora 29

    VLC works fine on the partition I upgraded from fc28 to fc29, but two of the scriptlets core dump when installing on a freshly installed fc29.
    Code:
    $ grep vlc dnf.output
     vlc                                    x86_641:3.0.5-10.fc29                     rpmfusion-free-updates 1.9 M

      vlc-core-1:3.0.5-10.fc29.x86_64
    Any ideas?

    Unhappy Re: VLC installation core dumps on fresh Fedora 29

    Hallo,

    on a fresh Fedora 29 I have got the same problem. That's what I saw during the installation:

    https://gist.github.com/Mebus/95fe12...ad02162c37faf1

    And this happens, when I try to start VLC:

    Code:
    VLC media player 3.0.5 Vetinari (revision 3.0.5-1-0-g653c0c1ca8)
    [1]    28970 segmentation fault (core dumped)  vlc
    I have reported a bug here: https://bugzilla.rpmfusion.org/show_bug.cgi?id=5136

    This can be fixed by:

    dnf install jack-audio-connection-kit
    see: https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1663680

    Re: VLC installation core dumps on fresh Fedora 29

    After reading the bug report, I installed jack-audio-connection-kit, then removed Carla. It was installed by mistake, and it pulled in some other dependencies, none of which are needed by VLC.
    Code:
    $ sudo dnf install jack-audio-connection-kit
