Mandrakes at Hogswarts, and tossed 'em. Re-installed using enablerepo
livna install xine*. Still jerking and no sound again. Maybe if xine
wasn't in extras at all, since we're all petty crooks when it comes to

the REALLY GOOD STUFF to satisfy our less than noble urges from a
repo. :) Ric

..the Sin of Ignorance, and the Sin of Stupidity.
Only the former may be overcome." R.I.P. Dad.
