VLC crashes due to Pulse audio output and Opengl video output.

VLC crashed and I opened it in terminal with command vlc.
Setup:
Hardy 8.04
Ati radeon 9800
pentium 4 3 gig mem 1 gig

Got this error message:
------------------------------
VLC media player 0.8.6e Janus

found first part of the solutio here:

Verbeter de werking van muziek- en filmspeler VLC

VLC werkt nog niet goed via het nieuwe geluidssysteem Pulse Audio. Zet VLC daarom terug op het oude ALSA-systeem:

a. Start VLC

b. Werkbalk VLC: Instellingen - Preferences - Audio - Uitvoermodules

c. Zet vinkje bij: Geavanceerde opties (rechtsonderin)

d. Audio output module: zet hem op "ALSA audio uitvoer".

e. Klik op "Opslaan" en sluit VLC.

(great site for dutch readers)

++++++++++++++++

By setting the VLC audio output to Alsa the faultmessage was reduced to:
(.:11652): Gtk-WARNING **: Kan themamodule in modulepad: ‘clearlooks’ niet vinden,
[00000343] main private error: option glx-shm does not exist
libGL error: drmGetMagic failed

Found the rest of the solution here:

open vlc (no video, just open it as a program), and do the following:
click - settings > preferences > video
in the bottom right, put a checkmark in "advanced options"
then click - output modules
and change "video output module" from "opengl video output" to "x11 video output".
