Anyone getting this notice when telneting to the phone?


Can this be ignored? Will it cause any problems?

As the message is reported by gstreamer as a notice on shell login it should not cause any problems. On ERR or WARN that could be more of a problem. I think you can ignore that message (though even notices should be checked why they occour).

I'm getting this, too, but only recently. I assume it started with the January update, but of course it could have been caused by any software I installed between my last remote login and the update, too.

Yes I have it as well. Also noticed it just recently, probably after January update.

I installed extra codec support or similar via OpenRepos not so long ago. I recall one specified gstreamer too, so guessing it's related. Would be useful if others could confirm similar please, thanks.

This does not seem to be related to 3rd party software. I thought a video player that I installed, which uses gstreamer, caused the message to appear. After a complete reset and reinstall of Sailfish, the message was back immediately though - even without any 3rd party apps installed.

The message has nothing to do with gstreamer but is caused by the script /etc/profile.d/developer-profile.sh. See this answer:


I added QT_GSTREAMER_CAMERABIN_FLAGS to the whitelist and now the message is gone.

This does not affect GStreamer at all. This is used by QtMultimedia.
