As requested, removed all vlc folders:
bar at querida:~$ rm -rf ~/.config/vlc;rm ~/.cache/vlc
rm: cannot remove `/home/bar/.cache/vlc': No such file or directory
bar at querida:~$ ls ~/.config/vlc;ls ~/.cache/vlc
ls: cannot access /home/bar/.config/vlc: No such file or directory
ls: cannot access /home/bar/.cache/vlc: No such file or directory
backtrace is in attachement, I am not familiar with gdb, so if you
look for something
specific. (more than is in the attachement). Please treat me as a novice.
bar at querida:~$ cat /proc/version
Linux version 2.6.30-1-686 (Debian 2.6.30-6) (waldi at debian.org) (gcc
version 4.3.4 (Debian 4.3.4-1) ) #1 SMP Sat Aug 15 19:11:58 UTC 2009
bar at querida:~$ uname -a
Linux querida 2.6.30-1-686 #1 SMP Sat Aug 15 19:11:58 UTC 2009 i686 GNU/Linux
Thanks and best regards,
