JavaScript Errors in CMS

Hi, I'm getting js errors constantly when trying to access the /admin page, or when I try to do anything within the CMS section; SilverStripe is v2.3.3 and it's running on openSuSE 11.1 with apache 2.2.10-2.5

Loading it locally in Opera 10.0 clicking Site Content I get these errors:

JavaScript - http://localhost/admin/0
Inline script compilation
Syntax error while loading: line 2265 of linked script at http://localhost/jsparty/tiny_mce2/tiny_mce_src.js?m=1238116563
Expected token: '}'

JavaScript - http://localhost/admin/0
Event threat: load
name: ReferenceError
message: Statement on line 903: Undefined variable: tinyMCE
stacktrace: n/a; see opera:config#UserPrefs|Exceptions Have Stacktrace

locally in Firefox 3.5.3 it's even worse, it won't load the pages, it just briefly displays the loading icon and the icon next to the page name changes to the loading symbol, in the js console I just get e.g.:

Error: jQuery is not defined
Source File: http://localhost/sapphire/javascript/core/jquery.ondemand.js?m=1234316538
Line: 205

If I try it remotely using IE8 I get a whole load of errors, syntax errors, expected this that and the other and it doesn't load the admin page at all, just sits at the SS loading page.

Whether this is related or not I don't know, but the normal web pages load EXTREMELY slowly if I access them by the domain name, even on the host, but if I access them using localhost it works fine. I thought it may have been that apache was binding to everything, but when I set it to bind to it's IP address, I couldn't get into the CMS (Access to the CMS only works using localhost or, otherwise it hangs ala IE8 even in Opera)

Any ideas?
