Some help with segmentation faults?


I'm somewhat new to all this, I've had mandrake for a while, now I've recently installed FC3 and had everything set up how I want it....then it happens:

programs that are run in terminal, once opened, immediately close.
if I command them straight from the terminal here is what I get:
Code:
[slushie@localhost ~]$ armagetronad
Fatal signal: Segmentation Fault (SDL Parachute Deployed)
Code:
[slushie@localhost ~]$ xine
This is xine (X11 gui) - a free video player v0.99.3.
(c) 2000-2004 The xine Team.
xiTK received SIGSEGV signal, RIP.
Aborted
any help on what I can do to fix this? I REALLY don't want to reinstall and go through all the RPMs again.

your help would be greatly appreciated.

Make sure that all the library dependencies are there. From a terminal, run
Code:
ldd `which armagetronad`
If this reports unsatsfied dependency errors, install the packages that are missing.

Thanks, I'll give that a try.

These binaries are statically-linked, which means that this isn't a library dependency problem. It's probably something to do with your X or SDL configuration have you tried running the programs from the console (Ctrl+Alt+F1; you will need to either be running a framebuffer device or have installed SVGAlib).

Try using 'yum' next time. Very handy program to deal with RPM problems.

I can run xine fine, but when I right click it gives the same error
Code:
xiTK received SIGSEGV signal, RIP.
and then it exits. Any ideas?
