"failed to add service - already in use?" error

Fri Jul 27, 2012 7:03 am

After the latest firmware update, any time I try to run a program with GLES/OpenVG, I get an error like this:

Code: Select all

3422136784: * failed to add service - already in use?
where the number changes each time. Does anyone know what could be causing this?

What memory split are you using?

It happens to me too using 128/128 and 192/64.

uname -a

Linux raspberrypi 3.1.9+ #202 PREMPT Wed Jul 25 22:11:06 BST 2012 armv6l GNU/Linux.

I will try reflashing the sdcard.

I reflashed the sdcard, installed and ran the rpi-update and the same error occurred again running hello_triangle.

Same thing here, also started happening after I updated the firmware yesterday.

I have the same problem with Quake 3 and some people get this error running XBMC.

I can confirm Mauro's statement regarding XBMC.

@all
Have you tried updating today? I think I fixed this late last night.

Hi dom, after a

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get dist-upgrade
sudo rpi-update 192

Reboot

It works.

Thank you.

I started getting this error when I just switched to the new "2012-09-18-wheezy-raspbian" image. I get it e.g. when I compile and try to run the hello_triangle example.

I had it on 240/16 as the previous image worked with that. Also I had tried the rpi-update 192 command instructed in a message above, thinking I had tried it with that as well with no luck. I guess I somehow missed an error message since there is no rpi-update command. :D

Now that I checked & tried again, it works again with the 192 memory split. 224 doesn't work either, although it gives a different, app dependent error message (context creation fails).

Xbian 0.6.3

xbmc would error.

Tried 192, xbmc started but still would not finish loading. Set to 128 seems to be working now.
