Can you execute 'vlc' in a terminal and paste the output here?

I have a similar problem, but with mine it shows the controller, and can't run hardly any videos, and never any sound. I'm running 9.04 on my Playstation 3 as a partitioned separate OS and trying to upgrade vlc to a version that can actually play .avi and .mkv files. It isn't working from a combination of my lack of experience with OS's other than Apple and update download errors. It would be really nice if someone could just compile a usable VLC application for Ubuntu and release it in a zip file.
