VLC not lunching


I have installed vlc last night, from the repository. everything went fine but upon lunching it jumps around for a bit and just vanished with out a trace..and this seem to be a very common prob lem that i've experienced with server suse 10.2 installations..

how can i go about in solving this issue?
what causes such symptoms in general?

thanks

Did you install VLC using YAST ?
and what Suse are you running, you said server.. are you not running OpenSuse 10.2 ?

What happens when you run it from the command-line? Often you will get more (and more useful) output running things from a console, where any failure text will be outputted.
