 Does this look something like the MPlayer altivec issues to you?  The
whole vector thing kinda makes me wonder, since MPlayer and Xine-lib both pull
off somewhat similiar ffmpeg code bases.  Let me know what you think on this.
Comment 3 Luca Barbato gentoo-dev 2004-10-20 08:32:54 UTC
looks like they are _still_ using an ancient version of libmpeg2.
there isn't much to do just apply the same workaround we have for ppc that's all for now (I don't have time to hack my way to the xine custom libmpeg2 in order to fix a long time ago already fixed issue)

please check after 30min the same ebuild, it should work correctly now.
Comment 5 Yang Dehua 2004-10-20 17:55:46 UTC
Yes, it compiles. Thank you.
