Okay. The error message seems to indicate otherwise.
Next question: is the path to the music files, from the Suse FE's
vantage point, the same as it is on the Gentoo FE/BE ? That is to say,
if the music is stored in '/var/music' on the FE/BE, is that directory
mounted as such (/var/music) on the Suse FE machine? This path (path to
music files) is stored in the database, along with the actual filename
of the mp3 file in question. When the FE tries to play an mp3 file,
the 'music directory' (/var/music/) and the filename (playthis.mp3) are
concatenated (/var/music/playthis.mp3), and then the file is opened.
