    After setting it to keep the work directory.

    Just thought I'd note to be careful to those gentoo folks copying the files across - keep an eye on what happens in future with the ebuilds. Some things may or may not be changed, and as such manually copying files over now may lead to problems later. Not saying not to do so, just saying to remember what you've done, and be able to put things back the way they were.

    I see this error too, Fedora 10 with Xserver 1.5.2 with kernel 2.6.27.5. I'm pretty sure this is caused by Xorg not loading libfglrxdrm.so file, but I have no idea why Xorg would refuse to autoload it/ignore it.

    vo=gl,yuv=5,swapinterval=1,force-pbo,ati-hack

    Do you set any other switches in order to play 1080p? thanks.
    Try it like this (IIRC yuv=4 is better as 5 has the same colourspace problem as xv)

    mplayer -vo gl:yuv=4:force-pbo:ati-hack

    1080p if it's high bitrate h264 may eat all your Cpu whatever output you use.

    that didn't help, but I discovered debug/error output in dmesg when starting X.

    Here is the whole thing.

    Well just for reference the files being replaced belong to xorg-server so either make a backup of the current files, or just emerge -1 xorg-server to restore the original files.


    I have the buildpkg feature turned on so backups of all the software built are in one location.

    error - it is a bug. If you can reproduce it, try disabling heap randomization - does that help?

    might not work because of file collisions. I made a backup of the files, so I can move them back, when the need arises.

    On fresh ubuntu 8.10 (hd2400 pro agp) after following this guide we get the next present:

    Code:
    module ABI major version (0) doesn't match the server's version (1)
    
    Failed to load module "dri" (module requirement mismatch, 0)
    
    Failed to load /usr/lib/xorg/modules/drivers/fglrx_drv.so
    This catalyst brother makes me mad!

    Btw, open source driver is good but weak at video playback damn it. All I want is inet, musik and filmzzz in the Saturday evening! Damn, but I spend more and more time in Windblowz, though the "tearing" effect is present there too...
