Xine crash in Fedora Core


I recently installed Xine on Fedora Core 1, and it now appears in the menu and I can lauch it but it lasts for all of 3 seconds before clsoing every time. Does anyone know why this might be? I installed it using 'apt-get install xine*'.

Thanks.

the best way to get wine working is to have had windows 98 already installed on that partition so wine will use all of MS's libraries, etc.

I believe the reference was actually to "Xine" the multimedia player. I was able to get Xine up and running under FC1, but I don't remember how. I don't think I used apt-get, though. I probably went to freshrpms or something like that and DLed, then used rpm to install. Anyways, before you go about uninstalling and reinstalling, try launching (either from an xterm or by pressing ALT+F2 and typing) "gxine" and maybe that will work better for you. I think I remember having issues if I typed "xine" instead.

oh try apt-get install dpkg? you have the apt-get tools but not dpkg. uhm use whatever you normally would use. dpkg is used in debian. uh. see if rpm has a purge fuction. *thinks back to redhat days* would it be rpm -e xine?
