"xine crashes the system when attempting to load a media file, forcing reboot,
whether choosing the file from the xine gui, choosing xine as the file player from pcmanfm,
or from a command to play a file."
Unfortunately, crash in this case is instant black screen, no chance for terminal output, but I did
some fast Control-z once, and there were mentions of Cups and Wine servers launching, then
"rpc.nfsd writing to kernel failed: errno 111 (connection refused) rpc.nfsd:unable to set any sockets"
Since vlc and mplayer, installed at the same time, are both working,
it's very odd behavior, for a mature app, probably the fast moving 'E' has a broken/missing component.
