mplayer error

Running suse9.3. I installed mplayer a while back, and it worked great. Then after a week or two it started only working randomly (IE I would do a fresh restart, try to play a video with no luck, do another fresh restart and it worked fine), Now however, it doesn't even work intermitenly. I've done about 5 restarts with no success. The errror I get (which I fail to understand):

MPlayer interrupted by signal 6 in module: vo_check_events
- MPlayer crashed. This shouldn't happen.
  It can be a bug in the MPlayer code _or_ in your drivers _or_ in your
  gcc version. If you think it's MPlayer's fault, please read
  DOCS/HTML/en/bugreports.html and follow the instructions there. We can't and
  won't help unless you provide this information when reporting a possible bug.
I've played this file before just fine, so it's not corrupted or anything. Does anybody recognize that error? What can I do about it? Totem and other movie applications all fail to work when mplayer fails to work. What's wrong with my media players?

Have you add
"echo 1024 > /proc/sys/dev/rtc/max-user-freq"

Some kind off error I've received while I was working with jackit It should help!

Nope, same thing happens. When you said "add" did you mean "tried"?
Here's what happened:
linux:/home/jordan/Desktop/osshare # echo 1024 > /proc/sys/dev/rtc/max-user-freq
linux:/home/jordan/Desktop/osshare #
Pretty exciting, huh?

and after that where is the
jordan@linux:~/Desktop/osshare/j2rse> mplayer pb3.mpeg
with that line you just put the noumber 1024 into the file "max-user-freq" which is located "/proc/sys/dev/rtc/"
