No, I was using Kaffeine which also uses the xine backend (and its better picture quality). I see my original post ended up looking like just a moan when that wasn't my intention. (best laid plans...) I chose Kubuntu because it has an easy set up for VMware and a couple of similar products which I hope to get installed and set up to run BSD. Like I said I really like many things about FreeBSD, like it is just so much better organised than the Linux I've previously used. I just wanted to get 'my' basic requirements established first which has usually been trivial to achieve, but unfortunately got no further. neal. _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
