cool. appreciate your efforts. i followed the same link as you had in your post that no-on ever answered! DId you have xfree 4.3 when you installed the patch? It's a bit confusing cos you say xfree 4.3 at the top then suggest you should change to it?

I have heard that the patch works just as well with xfree 4.3 - xfree 4.4 would prolly help right now...

I know you were posting to Acid, but I wanted to throw in my 2 cents..

from my personal experiences, on my lower-end system (A pII-333 with 192 Megs of ram) Mplayer is so far the ONLY app that allows me to watch DVDs like I used to with PowerDVD back in my old Win98 days...watching DVDs on my laptop when I travel was important to me and a roadblock to going linux only on my laptop.

I will agree tho that Xine on my Athlon works just fine...but that's a higher end system....

I think I had 4.1 or 4.2 not 4.3.

ok. the patch/driver i have is a .o file. I swapped and renamed it to replace one i found in usr/x11/lib/modules/driver.

this sound about right? what next?

by the way? before you applied the pacth could you get -vo xv to work at all? cos i can't...

No..for me xv wouldn't work at all until the patch.

After the patch I had to find some settings to change in the configuration files for x too (if I remember)

However for me, the patch still didn't work...the image was wrapped around and offset...really weird.
