vlc cannot load module libwxwidgets_plugin.so


I'm using OpenSuse 10.3. VLC always worked perfectly but since a week ago nothing is right with it.

First I can't get the good old original interface (wx). All I get is a default skin from skins2.

Second I can't get the preferences menu to work. (I tried other skins from the videolan site and it is the same)

Third I cannot playback any files. As soon as I try "X" crashes and restarts.

Here is what I tried after many researches on the Web:

I tried to reset all setting on startup and force the wx interface:

vlc -v --reset-config --reset-plugins-cache -I wx

but it changed nothing.

I tried erasing the .vlc folder in my home directory. No change.

I noticed the:

cannot load module `/usr/lib/vlc/gui/libwxwidgets_plugin.so'

error. I saw many people had that in my research, but no one seems to have solved the problem.

I tried compiling vlc from source by myself with the --enable-unicode and ----disable-skins2 but I got many errors preventing it from finishing the ./configure.

I tried installing wxwidget, but it conflicted with files from wxgtk. I forced installed wxwidget. No change.

I removed wxwidget and reinstalled an earlier version of wxgtk. No change.

I tried 3 other versions of vlc. No change. (even tried the new 0.9.0 beta but it would not install due to too many dependencies)

I also have the following needed packages installed:
Quote:
libcdio7 (0.78.2-4) and all the -devel, -utils, -cdda0 that follow
Quote:
libiso9660-5 (078.2-4)
From what I now understand the problem lies with the wxWidgets plugin having unresolved symbols, but I have no clue on how to fix it.

I posted on the vlc forum and had little response.

Some help would be appreciated.


This is partial output I get from : vlc -vvv
