    Programs sometimes stop working


    When I first installed xmms, it worked. But then it stops loading because of a segmentation fault. Then for no reason it will just start working again.

    Now, same with realplayer, but this time the error is
    Code:
    [root@localhost ~]# /usr/bin/realplay
    *** glibc detected *** free(): invalid pointer: 0x0824dd08 ***
    /usr/bin/realplay: line 75:  4100 Aborted                 $REALPLAYBIN "$@"
    Any ideas? BTW, how do I uninstall things?

    Looks like a nasty memory leak. I suggest you updating realplayer and report this bug to the bugzilla if realplayer has some.
