Rhythmbox instantly crashes @ edit --> preferences, F15 KDE x64

Hello. Refugee here from Linux Mint 10 KDE x64. I made the switch to Fedora about two months ago with v15 Lovelock, and it's certainly been an experience! For the record, I am running Fedora 15 x64 KDE with, as far as I know, latest updates through Fedora repos + RPM Fusion. I am running nVidia proprietary drivers (v280.13) for my MSI 8800GT.

I was having some issues with Wine, but managed to get most of those ironed out. Now I'm trying to get my favorite MP3 player working, Rhythmbox. I realize that KDE comes with its own alternative, Amarok, but I'm really a fan of Rhythmbox. The app itself runs, I can play MP3s, adjust the volume, even access the plugins window. But if I try to click Edit --> Preferences, the app silently quits. I ran it through konsole to try to capture some kind of error code, and got this:

I ran KPackageKit and installed the GLIb package (it wasn't previously), and GDBus (also wasn't installed). Now, I get:

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Apologies for the double post, but no idea?

Re: Rhythmbox instantly crashes @ edit --> preferences, F15 KDE x64

Dude, respect. I think I may like Clementine a bit better than Rhythmbox. The visualizers are cool, I like how the progress in the track is animated with the orange slice in the tray, and the Hypnotoad reference *might* have made me bust a lol. But I will deny it publicly.

Thanks for the tip, PiElle. I'm not going to mark the thread as solved (in case someone stumbles in from a Google search, and technically, Rhythmbox is still dead here lol), but I'm very happy with the way this worked out.

Thanks again.

I to am having the same issue with the same error output. It would be nice to see a fix surface. Until then Clementine seems pretty nifty.
