Sad  Random crash and freeze with Slack12.2
Post: #1
Hi guys! I am new to XBMC and I just downloaded a version from http://xbmc.strangled.net/ that is supposed to run on slackware 12.2 (which I use).

The compilation and install went all fine and I can easily start XBMC by typing xbmc in a console. However, it doesnt run very well.... trying to play videos, it freeze, videos are choppy and usually freeze or simply crash. When pointing to picture directories, sometimes it works, but also freeze, crash and create a core.#### file (very large like 100Mb or more) in my home directory. There is also tons of garbage (error dumps?) in the terminal window. I would paste what it says, but I know for sure you guys will not appreciate it (and I understand) so could you tell me what I can do to make it work? Am I supposed to have so many problems with it?

Thanks in advance guys!
Max
