Description Kristof 2002-06-15 11:50:02 UTC
I'm having problems with applications running xv, namely I can't run 2 at the
same time.
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-, it doesn't work.
Strange, I seem to be the only one with this problem.
Any ideas?

Put "xv" in your USE flags.
Comment 3 Kristof 2002-06-21 07:20:37 UTC
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 people
Comment 5 Martin Schlemmer (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2002-09-08 03:28:49 UTC
Seemant added ebuild back.
