gxine in Slackware is buggy program. Don't use it. Or remove it then install gxine froum source. If you just want to update one or two program, the best way is to update it manually. If you just want to update gimp, you remove it then install gimp froum source or install gimp from Slackware current repository. If you want to update all you softwares, then you have to take a risk to make your system unstable by updating your Slackware to Slackware current. You can use swaret or program like that. Slackware current is something like Debian Unstable.
