Package: libvlccore0
Version: 0.9.8a-3
Severity: important

*** Please type your report below this line ***

whenever I try to open any kind of media VLS shuts down with nothing
but an "Illegal Instruction"

dbg tells me:

LC media player 0.9.8a Grishenko
[New Thread 0x48021f20 (LWP 6467)]

Program received signal SIGILL, Illegal instruction.
[Switching to Thread 0x48021f20 (LWP 6467)]
0x0ff69140 in ?? () from /usr/lib/libvlccore.so.0

I might be related to my arch (PPC) since I don't get the same
behaviour im my i386 install.
