pornview runs as root, but segfaults as user


Hi,

so I can run pornview as root. When I run it as user, it segfaults
Code:
xine_thread: init threads
xine_thread: open display
gtkxine: auto-detecting video driver...
Segmentation fault
please, no responses telling me about a different application.

probably a permissions error. Make sure that your user session has all the read and write permissions it needs to run xine.

I'd suggest that you run xine via strace ...

strace -o outfile xine

and then look at what it's trying to access when it dies.


Cheers,
Tink
