To:Debian Bug Tracking System From:Erich Schubert Subject:Bug#664516: Fails with mpg321, works with mpg123 Date:Sun, 18 Mar 2012 15:42:26 +0100

Package: gjay
Version: 0.3.2-1
Severity: normal

I've noticed this primarily in analyze-standalone mode, that gjay no
longer was able to analyze mp3 files. "strace" revealed there is an error
reported by mpg321, but stderr doesn't get through:

Cannot initialize semaphores: File exists

Removing the mpg321 package helped. This might actually be an mpg321 bug
(but then gjay might need to use mpg123 only instead).
In fact, I do get the same error from mpg321 standalone, via
mpg321 -w - -b 10000 file.mp3
Cannot initialize semaphores: File exists
