Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I compiled mplayer with xv and sdl support, but only "mplayer -vo x11" works for me, others from the output of "mplayer -vo help" give me black screen, sound works fine.
the problem is that mplayer -vo x11 works only in normal mode, when I switch to fullscreen I see just black screen around the video playing.
Xine does the same thing "mplayer -V xshm" works well in normal and in fullscreen mode, but gives black screen with other vo.
I have XFree4.3, radeon 9100 (using radeon driver), dri is installed, in XF86Config I have:
mplayer -vo xv
