I use Mp3blaster for several years with Mandrake Linux.

Recently I had upgraded to Mandriva 2008.0, but I have 2 major problems with mp3blaster i586.rpm package (from Mandriva's contrib repository).

First problem:
The function keys F1, F2, F3, F4 DO NOT Work in ordinary console mode without any X Windows. If i press "save / write list" the program crashed with "segmentation fault".

When I use mp3blaster with Xterm / console inside X-Windows, all the function keys work normally.

Second problem:
I DO NOT use any remote control or LIRC. When I started MP3Blaster, it failed with the message:
"Failed to initialize LIRC (no config??)"

How to use mp3blaster without any remote control /LIRC?

How to solve the 2 problems?
Thank you very much.
