To mention entire list of updates:
Old system: Linux 2.6.34.8 x86_64 [amd64], nvidia-drivers 260.19.29, libx264 0.0.20101029(portage), mplayer 1.0_rc4_p20100612(--version gives SVN-r30554-4.4.3), vlc 1.1.4.

Tags shit-code, xfce

For almost 1+ year I've considered XFCE to be stable and well-optimized. And, well, it was. As minimalist, I have to note, there were two bugs annoyed me from time to time. The first one seems to appeared in 4.6.1 or 2, it was an issue with logging you out anyway once you pressed "Exit", even if you click "Cancel" later on.

I want to explore kmix in opensuse 11.4. Cause, when I want to run kmix, there is respond to load kmix. Signed, cursor is changed with kmix symbol and there is kmix in taskbar. But, after that, nothing happen with kmix. I mean, kmix doesn't appear. Evidently, there is kmix icon in right of taskbar.

I work for a Scientific Institution and a company which recorded talks decided to give us all the talks in DVD format instead of a hard drive full of video files.

mencoder
