Been there, done that, got the T-shirt. I've pretty much settled on
Freshrpms as when I installed Xine from there, it worked. I had to hunt
down and kill off all my livna supplied rpms first though. Xine was
stuttering like a red-squirrel on me during video playback. The install
from Freshrpms works flawlessly for me.
