vlc-phonon some issue and kshisen crashes
Hi all,
I don't know if this is enough or not to open a bug. I was playing
kshisen. After playing the game, I was closing it and kshisen crashed.
After that time everytime I open it I get a brief error message
(something about vlc-phonon) not working right and then the game

Here's a sort of backtrace which was done by the KDE Crash handler. I
am running kshisen inside GNOME 3.x fallback.

Do you have debian-multimedia (unstable/sid) in your sources.list?
If so, I wouldn't be surprised if you're experiencing sth similar to me after a recent upgrade of
vlc* packages recently (also from debian-multimedia).

If that's the case try installing the needed vlc packages from 'proper' debian:
- Install phonon-backend-null
This will uninstall phonon-backend-vlc. This new package is needed so that loads of (kde-related)
packages won't be uninstalled as well. This is sth temporary, since backend-null doesn't do anything
- Purge any vlc related packages
- Disable/remove the debian-multimedia line(s) from your sources.list
- Do aptitude update
- Install phonon-backend-vlc and other vlc related packages you want to use
This will remove phonon-backend-null, which is fine since we don't want that backend.

Now test it again and see if it resolves your issue.
