My vlc has lost its gui after an upgrade to fedora29. dnf shows that vlc.x86_64 vlc-core.x86_64 vlc-devel.x86_64 vlc-extras.x86_64 all installed.
Running from the command line segfaults:
*olin@lenolin:~$ vlc* *VLC media player 184.108.40.206 Vetinari (revision 220.127.116.11-0-gf3940db4af)* *[0000557a71a64590] main libvlc: Running vlc with the default interface. Use 'cvlc' to use vlc without interface.* *Segmentation fault (core dumped)* However the default interface worked, but it has no control, and the only exit I found was to crash the program. The video and sound played at full screen mode despite the error messages. *cvlc 'Killing Eve S01E01.mp4'* *VLC media player 18.104.22.168 Vetinari (revision 22.214.171.124-0-gf3940db4af)* *[0000564ebce8e870] dummy interface: using the dummy interface module...* *[0000564ebce69280] vlcpulse audio output error: digital pass-through stream connection failure: Not supported* *[0000564ebce69280] main audio output error: module not functional* *[00007f69ea786600] main decoder error: failed to create audio output* *Failed to open VDPAU backend libvdpau_va_gl.so: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory*
Incidentally libvdpau-1.1.1-11.fc29.x86_64 is already installed.
