Linux azzerare 4.0.5-gentoo #1 SMP Mon Jun 29 05:21:15 PDT 2015 x86_64 AMD Athlon(tm) 64 Processor 3400+ AuthenticAMD GNU/Linux

For some reason vlc is crashing xfce4.

cwc@azzerare ~ $ vlc
VLC media player 2.1.5 Rincewind (revision 2.1.4-49-gdab6cb5)
[0x1b5b1e8] main libvlc: Running vlc with the default interface. Use 'cvlc' to use vlc without interface.
Remote control interface initialized. Type `help' for help.
^Ccwc@azzerare ~ $ cvlc
VLC media player 2.1.5 Rincewind (revision 2.1.4-49-gdab6cb5)
[0xbca388] dummy interface: using the dummy interface module...
^Ccwc@azzerare ~ $

I re-installed vlc with no luck.

Please throw me a bone.

There is nothing like "gnome-libs". Also USE=gnome doesn't add an GUI to vlc. The only vlc GUI for linux is written in Qt. You can chose between Qt4 and Qt5 (reflected in USE-Flags).

thanks the the line!

think I might switch back to gnome.
I'll follow this guide.
