I did have xine working fine at some point in the past... don't remember
exactly... it might have even been on my previous linux distro.  I just
tried to install it with yum and I got multiple screens of dependency
errors... so I'm not going to even attempt to wade through it now.  If
you see a post here later (days, weeks, months) about getting xine, feel
free to jump in.

Thanks for the tip,
