like a lot of other people here on the forums (yup, I did my research) I am getting the error of
"Linux RTC init error in ioctl (rtc_irqp_set 1024): Permission denied
Try adding "echo 1024 > /proc/sys/dev/rtc/max-uer-freq" to your system startup scripts
as well as
mplayer: could not connect to socket
mplayer: No such file or directory
But here's the really weird part:
If I launch gmplayer as
It loads up the window and control panel, but the program is frozen. I can't use it and clicking on the "X" (in Gnome) does not close it. The only way to cause it to quit is a level 9 kill.
If I launch it as
Then everything works all perfectly. I can watch video files, listen to music, etc
Does anyone know what the heck is going on here? What difference does the & make? For me, it means being able to continue in the command line with other things, but what could it possibly mean to gmplayer?
And does the 1024 error have something to do with it?
