Is anyone else experiencing a seg fault with gxine?

I haven't been able to use gxine at all with Slack 11, I just get a segmentation fault when trying to run it. Normal xine works fine though. I'm just wondering if this is happening to anyone else, or is it just me?

Hi Nylex,

For what it's worth, I'm getting the same thing. Yours is only the second report I've seen online, the other was in a Zenwalk Linux forum, but no solution there yet.

Same thing here. GXine was working fine w/ 10.2. Unfortunately, I haven't had the time to dig into it further, since I don't use it all that much anyway.

Working fine here. I have an upgraded (10.2 -> 11.0 system).
I did a quick test what would happen to gxine if I removed the mplayer-codecs that I have installed, but that did not make any difference, it just runs, and plays movies.

gxine used to start up fine here, but usually froze at the end of a file, sometimes even in the middle. I just checked the settings and I see that the codec paths were pointing to 1.1.1 instead of 1.1.2. At least it doesn't seem to freeze now.

Thanks for the replies people. It looks like it's to do with Firefox 2.0, as per the Slack changelog.

I have the same problem. I removed the mozilla package that came with slack 11. I installed firefox 2.0.

trying some things now see if I can get gxine working. I did have it working fine
I installed firefox and got segmentation fault as usual.
I installed seamonkey and bam gxine is working again.
