Nonono, only the 32 bit version is installed. Miraculously, the 32 bit version appeared out of thin air, though. I wish that I could have found how I solved the problem.

I know I already installed it through apt-get, but it didn't include libgtk-x11:i386. I can't even find the package on Synaptic.

comment RAM upgrade causes firefox, compiz crashes, even kernel panic on HP Pavilion
So I just installed lubuntu 32 bit, and I had some episodes of the same problem. I tried compiling ghc from source, and midway it cuts out saying there was a bus error. My guess is that it's from using 32 bit on a 4G+ memory system. Probably wrong there, but it may have something to do with how the kernel evaluates address spaces, and thus I feel like the 32 bit restriction might have something to do with it. I'm installing lubuntu 64 right now, will update with results.

Well, that's good news at least (actually I guess not cause it doesn't solve the problem!). I just did a memtest using an old 9.10 cd (the only one I could find that did memtests from the cd), but it says that all the tests passed. I'm just going to compile my own kernel with gentoo and have a separate lubuntu partition, and post my results. Thanks though.

@kiloseven No, the problem goes away. I'm guessing HP put something proprietary in there somewhere.

@yilmi That's my next plan - make myself a gentoo build.

comment Does RhythmBox have any command line interface or method of interprocess communication?
It turns out Banshee has the ability to both query for current player information (like track playing, cursor position, player state, etc.) and control playback! banshee --help 'splains it all! Thank you for your help though, I hope you have a great day!

Awesome! That saves me so much headache. Do you know if there's a --seek ability? It doesn't include it in the man pages.
