xine configuration

There's a command you can run to get xine to scan your setup and advise you about configuration issues - DMA settings, etc. I thought it was xine-config, but that doesn't seem to be right - it just lists commandline options, and they don't seem to be what I'm after.

As I recall, the command isn't mentioned in the help files explicitly, but was mentioned in passing in some error messages, or something like that.

Can anyone tell me what it is?

Thanks - I happened to find it after a Google search - even so, it wasn't easy to find.

Wow, that helped me a lot, created the link for mounting after xine-checking and poof, watching blackhawk down! Xine is a great player and works better than the ones I have attempted in my XP isntall(getting dusty). Thanks!
