Because there are many GNU/Linux distributions and software configurations, and, possible, internal bugs, plugins may have bad performance or even crash. The good way to find the solutiong is to submit a bug or crash report. This section describes the way to give detailed information to developers.
To submit a good bug or crash report, you should answer these questions:
- Did you use the previous version of plugins? If yes, did they properly work and have you properly uninstalled the previous version?
- What version of plugins caused a crash? Was it LV2, LinuxVST, LADSPA or standalone package?
- Did you try standalone version of plugins? Did they crash, too?
- What CPU and memory configuration do you use? This can be done by issuing 'cat /proc/cpuinfo' and 'free' commands.
- What Linux distribution do you use? This may be done by issuing 'uname -a' and 'cat /etc/issue' commands.
- What version of required (see 'INSTALLATION') packages are present in your system?
- Provide the full list (besides LSP Plugins) of plugins that you used in your host.
- If possible, provide the stack trace of the crash, given by GDB. See 'PROFILING / DEBUGGING' section for details.
- If plugins have serious performance regression, please provide profiling file. See 'PROFILING / DEBUGGING' section for details.
