Sorry guys for replying so very late.
My local LAN was DOWN so could't connect to the internet
try executing this as root:
sysctl -w dev.rtc.max-user-freq=1024
then try mplayer again.
If it fixes things then put it in a startup script.
If it doesn't work, try removing then reinstalling the mplayer rpm. You are better off compiling mplayer from source though, more optimized for your system.
edit: put "sysctl -w dev.rtc.max-user-freq=1024" in a startup script anyway
I tried that but to no effect. Mplayer still gave that very same error.
I even uninstalled mplayer and then installed it again from the same package but it still gave the same "segmentation fault" error.
extract all-20050115.tar.bz2 to /usr/lib/
must have root privileges to do that.
name the folder "all-20050115" to win32
so now you must have a folder /usr/lib/win32 with all the codecs necessary for mplayer.
now try watching the movie again and see if it works. If it doesn't let me know.
I tried this also.
Xine works fine.
Mplayer can play some .wmv files but cannot play some others.It gives that same "segmentation fault" error with those files that it cannot play.
Also mplayer crashes too much :
It says that mplayer was interrupted by signal 11 in module video_decode and also that,
mplayer crashed due to improper use of CPU/FPU/RAM
I even reinstalled mplayer but it still keeps crashing.Think I'll have to upgrade to a newer version.
Thanx again and sorry for replying so late.
