Using openSuse 12.1_x86 and KDE 3 repo for a previous working install, and for 
a brand-new install last night. Commandline "mplayer" works, as does SMplayer 
through GUI, but GUI and commandline use of "gmplayer" does not work.  
KDE3-Kplayer works fine, as dows Gnome Player and VLC.  Best can tell, 
gmplayer stopped working about 3+ weeks ago.

The output/error I get when starting gmplayer from the commandline is this:

I tried to install debug info for gmplayer, but only mplayer's debug info 
installed, so using "gdb" produced nothing useful for me to pass to a 

I also did a fresh install of 12.1_x64 and KDE4, and after adding multimedia 
bits that usually work, I got the same results when calling gmplayer.  Note: 
all these installs/tests were run in real partitions, not VMs.
