certain programs dont run


i've attempted to run the audio player (xmms) and nothing happens. it just acts like i never did anything. i've noticed this with some other programs too.

when i try running it in the terminal, it says:

Segmentation Fault

You've Probably found a bug in XMMS... etc

Try running these programs from a shell. Type:

xmms

and see if it works and if it doesn't post the error messages that you get.

Yes I meant a terminal. Do all your applications give you Segmentation Faults?

it only appears to be xmms right now. there were a few others, but i cant find them again. originally oowriter wouldn't do anything when i clicked the icon in the panel bar, but then i ran it from the terminal, it opened, and now when i click in the panel bar it works fine.
