I just backported XINE from unstable to Potato. When I tried to run XINE,
it didn't even proceed past the splash screen. Here's the output message:
This is xine (X11 gui) - a free video player v0.9.3
(c) 2000, 2001 by G. Bartsch and the xine project team.

My video card is S3 Trio 3D/2x, and I'm using XFree86 4.1 for Potato.
I'm not really sure what to do (edit /etc/XF86Config-4, or buy a new video card,
or whatever voodoo incantation that needs to be done) to make XINE work. Just
need a decent VCD player for Linux.
