Lucid: Video apps crash after loading a video to play on Dell Latitude X300


Lucid: Video apps crash after loading a video to play

Have a Dell Latitude X300 with Intel video (Intel Extreme 2 Graphics, 82852/855GM Integrated Graphics Device, using the i915 driver) loaded with Ubuntu 10.04 LTS . Did the modeset fix to fix video in Lucid, then disabled Plymouth.

Video, several weeks after install, now fails; when a file to play is loaded, every video app (VLC 1.06 Goldeneye, totem 2.30.2, GNOME
Mplayer 0.9.9.2-1) crashes after sensing the nature of the file.
Removed video apps with sudo apt-get remove avidemux-plugins-common*
avidemux-plugins-gtk* gstreamer0.10-ffmpeg* gstreamer0.10-ffmpeg-dbg* gstreamer0.10-plugins-bad-multiverse* gstreamer0.10-plugins-bad- multiverse-dbg* gstreamer0.10-plugins-ugly-multiverse* gstreamer0.10- plugins-ugly-multiverse-dbg* libavcodec-extra-52* libavformat52* libmjpegtools-1.9* libquicktime-dev* libquicktime1* libx264-85* mozilla-plugin-vlc* remuco-vlc* vlc* vlc-dbg* vlc-nox* vlc-plugin-ggi* vlc-plugin-jack* vlc-plugin-pulse* vlc-plugin-sdl* vlc-plugin-svg* vlc-plugin-svgalib*

unmarked all repositories but for the original (incl. deselecting
Medibuntu) and then reinstalled. No joy.

Opened up Medibuntu, reinstalled, same problem.
Tried the fixes outlined in
http://www.ubuntugeek.com/fix-for-vl...-after-ubuntu-...
and
http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.p...=video+failure
to no avail.

dmesg says it runs Linux version 2.6.32-24-generic (buildd@rothera) (gcc version 4.4.3 (Ubuntu 4.4.3-4ubuntu5) ) #39-Ubuntu SMP Wed Jul 28 06:07:29 UTC 2010 (Ubuntu 2.6.32-24.39-generic 2.6.32.15+drm33.5)

How do I fix this and be able to watch vids again?
Many thanks, all.

Can you show us the error message you receive?

Sadly, there is no error message. The video apps show me the type of video codec then crash with no error message.

So if you run one of those apps from a terminal (such as mplayer) it simply tells you the video codec and then completely stops without any other output?

That is correct. Specifically, the video codec is within the app (mplayer, et al.) and does not appear in the terminal session window.

OK, if you run 'mplayer /path/to/video' it's going to display some output. Show us exactly what that output says.

Hmmm... What if you force mplayer to use another output device, such as x11. 'mplayer -vo x11 /path/to/video' ?

Well that's not really a fix, more of a workaround for broken drivers.

Please attach your /var/log/Xorg.0.log file to a post here.
