Now, this isn't critical. It doesn't impede Blender's core functionality. Is this related to  FS#24188 ?
Comment by farid (osc) - Thursday, 09 June 2011, 05:21 GMT
hmmmm, of course it is critical. i cant animate with audio. i cant use blender as i want/must/have to.
Comment by Sven-Hendrik Haase (Svenstaro) - Thursday, 09 June 2011, 10:35 GMT
Yes, but please try to keep bug report priorities objective. Blender doesn't crash when performing its core tasks. It might be critical for you but I imagine people use Blender for modeling rather than for audio animation.

Anyway, yes this is annoying. Is there a relation to the bug I mentioned and/or is there an upstream bug? Can you try to compile with the flags provided in  FS#24188 ?

Please try blender-1:2.58-1 in testing. I've added ffmpeg and sndfile codec support so that (or the upstream update) might fix it.
