I'm having problems with applications running xv, namely I can't run 2 at the
When I'm running xawtv, xmms or mplayer won't play any video's. Only a black
screen pops up. I do hear audio though. When I go to a console and come back
to X without looking at xawtv, the video plays well. Also when I run xawtv with
-noxv option, the video plays. I don't want this though (the -noxv thing)
because xawtv then only gets a very small window.
I know it's not a hardware issue, because all works well on my Slackware 8 box.
FWIW, I'm running a Creative Riva TNT2 Ultra 32Mb, with the latest nvidia drivers.
Please help me :)
I've tracked the bug down to SDL.
It works fully with a self-compiled SDL-1.2.3
~/SDL-1.2.3$./configure --prefix=/usr/local && make && make install
This makes it work
Doing the same with the ebuilds of libsdl-1.2.4-r2.ebuild or
libsdl-184.108.40.20620601.ebuild, it doesn't work.
Strange, I seem to be the only one with this problem.
Put "xv" in your USE flags.
It's been there all the time.
Taking it out didn't help.
Could you please leave the 1.2.3 ebuild in the tree? I always do emerge --clean
rsync and it's gone.
sorry I didn't see this earlier, kristof. The 1.2.3-r1 ebuild is back in
portage for you.
please let me know in here whether that sorts your issue.
And if it does, please report the bug to the libsdl.org people
Seemant added ebuild back.
