    Kaffeine 0.6 crashes


    I recently fixed my multimedia problem in suse 9.3 and one of the things I did was to get the newest kaffeine.

    What happens is that when I shut it using the quit button, after two-three seconds there is thing "bomb" pop up saying that Kaffeine just crashed, whereas I myself have shut Kaffeine.

    And 0.5 did not do this. Am I the only one experiencing this?

    Any ideas?

    Thanks

    hmm... did you also install the latest xine?
    i just got the newest xine and kaffiene last night in RPM format and they work fine. i've only watched Red vs Blue on it so far though.
    Here's why Linux is easier than Windows:
    Package Managers! Apt-Get and Portage (among others) allow users to install programs MUCH easier than Windows can.
    Hardware Drivers. In SuSE, ALL the hardware is detected and installed automatically! How is this harder than Windows' constant disc changing and rebooting?

    If you got the very latest release, it might not be completely stable. You could report it as a bug to the development team if you can't find another solution.

    i've just been trying to watch RvB in it and it crashes. the process goes like this:
    1. open kaffiene
    2. open all AVI files to playlist
    3. Watch them
    4. next AVI file is downloaded by the time it is finished
    5. go to open next AVI file when it crashes. throws up error message and goes down.

    i don't know if it is xine or kaffiene doing this. i'm using mplayer for now but i might try a different front end when i get time (ie after watching RvB )

    It doesn't really bug me because it doesn't crash. When I myself exit only then does it display that message

    Weird.

    Btw which version of xine should I have?

    Thanks
