Bug: Spark 2.5.3 Crash on wireless

Installed 2.5.3 GM today. When I disconnect my ethernet cable and switch to wireless, Spark crashes. I re-launch the app, it connects, loads the roster, and crashes again. So I’'m not able to run Spark from wireless. When I plug the ethernet cable back in, it works fine. Note that both the ethernet cable and wireless connections are in the same company network inside the firewall. I did not have this problem with 2.5.2, but did have it with 2.5.3 beta.


for me Spark works using WLAN so I guess it’'s another problem. I assume that you are running Spark on Windows. Then you should find hs_err_pidN.log files in your Spark directory, probably with DirectSound issues similar to this crash:

Java frames: (J=compiled Java code, j=interpreted, Vv=VM code)

j com.sun.media.protocol.dsound.DSound.nClose(J)V+0

j com.sun.media.protocol.dsound.DSound.close()V+14

j DirectSoundAuto.supports(Ljavax/media/format/AudioFormat;)Z+17

j DirectSoundAuto.()V+219

These happen quite often if you run Spark two times (check this with the Task Manager). Sometimes it helps to start a music player and play a sound file to fix this problem if every Spark start fails with this problem.


Interesting… I do have logfiles with:

and also

how this happens is

Boot on ethernet

launch spark

unplug ethernet by undocking from docking station

Windows automatically connects to wireless

Spark crashes

I wonder if it has more to do with the fact that I have undocked, than using wireless?


do you use a normal monitor normally?

I wonder if you get the graphics errors when your computer switches the display.

Do you also get sound errors when you undock your notebook?
