Cannot run VLC
Another DVD player failure! I thought this one was supposed to be foolproof!
Anyone else getting annoyed with my failures to simply watch a DVD?
Same old story again - I just did a urpmi install in Man 9.1 straight from the instructions on the VLC page. I ran VLC for the first time, opened the DVD I wanted to watch, the viewing window comes up...and then goes down again and i get this error:
The program '' received an X Window System error.
This probably reflects a bug in the program.
The error was 'BadAlloc (insufficient resources for operation)'.
(Details: serial 75 error_code 11 request_code 141 minor_code 19)
(Note to programmers: normally, X errors are reported asynchronously;
that is, you will receive the error a while after causing it.
To debug your program, run it with the --sync command line
option to change this behavior. You can then get a meaningful
backtrace from your debugger if you break on the gdk_x_error() function.)
I haven't managed to get a single DVD player to work on my machine yet and VLC is pretty much my "obi-wan kenobi" - apparently it'll run on anything so i hold on to hope.
My system is a Dell Latitude CPi, P2 400MHz, 128Mb, Neomagic 256 video and audio cards.
