The program crashed. Try it again. If it's the same, maybe try to install it again (from other archive) or compile.

ok i reinstalled wine, downloaded it from a different archive, and it still is giving me segmentation faults.

XMMS crashed the same way a couple of times also.

Any suggestions?

Is the RPM made for your platform and distribution? I've had segmentation faults on occasion when I try to install a RedHat RPM on my Mandrake system, for example. I've had fairly good luck with the Dataparty RPMs. If all else fails, you could try compiling from source - that usually seems to give the best results for me.
