Audacious symbol lookup Error - Slackware


Okay, I am currently running backtrack 3 which is based off slackware.

I am trying to reinstall audacious, due to a failed upgrade to the newest version. I use gslapt to get audacious versio 1.4.6-i486-1ultra and audacious-plugins 1.4.5-i486-1ultra. It downloads them and and says they are installed fine.

If I click on the icon in the kde menu nothing happens. If I pull up a shell and issue the command "audacious" I receive the following error.

"audacious: symbol lookup error: /usr/lib/mcs/libkeyfile.so: undefined symbol: mcs_list_append"

I really cant figure out why or whats going on. Any help or advice would be great, even suggestions on other players that work just as well as audacious...

This is probably not what you wanted to hear but why not just install Slackware? It's a great distro with a great user community and everything works.

The error you are describing looks like a missing library or a broken library module but since they seem to have a packaging system and may have decided on different "dependencies" than audacious actually requires it's difficult to know how to fix it. If possible, try removing libmcs and installing a fresh copy.

What box are you running this on? Does backtrack3 not have their own user forums?

I like bt3, I am currently running it on my macbook as a hdd install. Bt3 does have their own user forums but since my issue was with audacious I figured I would post here. I didnt think it is a backtrack specific issue since no one else posted any issues.
