[mythtv-users] segfault remote frontend after update

Just finished a yum update on FC8 which appears to have broken our remote
frontend.  This update process updates the entire mythtv-suite.  Both master
and remote frontend were updated at the same time.

Master front-/backend works fine as far as I can tell.

Last few lines of output from remote frontend:

2008-06-04 06:47:23.509 TV: Attempting to change from None to

Segmentation fault

last message in dmesg:

mythfrontend[3683]: segfault at 00000200 eip 0048884d esp b3db3870 error 4

If I connect "mplayer" on the remote frontend to a video file on the master,
it plays just fine.  The mplayer command I use is:

mplayer -fs -zoom -quiet -vo sdl -ao alsa


Thx!  -- Oji --
