We're having instant crash problems with xmms, audacious, and totem --
they com up alright, but when asked to play any music, they crash instead,
and can only be shut down with an explicit kill command. Mozilla is not
involved as far as I know; we start the applications from the fluxbox
totem just crashes immediately.
xmms and audacious are a little more rugged. Here's the scenario:
they put their windows up, with a playlist. Double-click on one of the
latest entries, it is selected for playing and starts crawling text box
containing the name, but nothing actually plays, and the progress bar
remains at zero. They, bored with this, we double-click on another song,
and it crashes -- becomes unresponsive, stops song name from crawling, and
can only be closed with the kill command.
It's an etch system that was make up-to-date yesterday. The problem has
existed for about three days, which is about the last time I updated
