Question Amarok and VLC player don't start (OpenSUSE 11.3)


Hi,

I have Amarok and VLC player installed on OpenSUSE 11.3 and they worked fine until I installed Acrobat Reader and with it some NVidia drivers (were included in the package). Here is what I get when I try to start them:

Amarok:

In terminal I get hundreds of lines of ID3 tag errors, followed by this:


Code:

In KDE Crash Handler this appears:

"Executable: amarok PID: 7300 Signal: 8 (Floating point exception)"



VLC:

Code:
VLC media player 1.1.9 The Luggage (revision exported)
Blocked: call to unsetenv("DBUS_ACTIVATION_ADDRESS")
Blocked: call to unsetenv("DBUS_ACTIVATION_BUS_TYPE")
[0x80503fc] main libvlc: Running vlc with the default interface. Use 'cvlc' to use vlc without interface.
Blocked: call to setlocale(6, "")
Floating point exception
Same Floating point exception... Any help?
Thank you in advance.

why adobe acrobat Reader

suse has 2 very nice pds readers installed by default already
evince ( gnome) ,okluar (KDE)

and adobe reader should not need a nvidia 3d card driver and that should not be in a suse rpm
What did you download and from where
this ???
"AdbeRdr9.4.2-1_i486linux_enu.bin" if so it is a a binary blob and as i recall from the last time i used it ( 5 years ago)
there is a very very very long EULA you must say yes to
-- is that what you installed ??? --

For me Okular works fine for smaller documents, but for longer ones (70 pages) it loads the first several pages and takes a lot of time to display the rest (~40 secs), and this is after the complete document has been downloaded.

I installed this: acroread-9.4.2-0.2.1 from YaST.

I don't know why it installed the NVidia drivers, but I'm glad it did because now the Air openSUSE desktop effects work and they didn't before that. If it wasn't for this, I would've uninstalled everything.
