an app spams the log with innumerable error messages

Post by einpoklum » Sun Jul 16, 2017 3:49 pm

My `$HOME/.cache/upstart/startxfce4.log` is filling up with loads and loads of copies of the following line:

Code: Select all

QGLContext::makeCurrent(): Cannot make invalid context current.
Apparently, in my specific case, Amarok is the culprit (it probably doesn't like being run under XFCE); but - that's not the issue here.

What I want to ask is that this be prevented or mitigated, i.e. if some app starts to spam the log that this be detected and indicated somehow, or even prevented.

PS - There already is log rotation, that's not enough to resolve the issue.
