XBMC on openSUSE fails to launch
 
I've never played with XBMC before and I installed it today on my openSUSE 11.2 64bit system using Yast. I found the package and installed it just fine, but when I try to launch XBMC from the applications menu, the screen flickers once but then nothing happens.

Here's the output:
Code:

grassman20@linux-3ys2:~$ xbmc
drmRadeonCmdBuffer: -22. Kernel failed to parse or rejected command stream. See dmesg for more info.
CRITSEC[0x10c60c8]: Trying to enter destroyed section.
CRITSEC[0x10c60c8]: Trying to leave destroyed section.
CRITSEC[0x10d08a8]: Trying to enter destroyed section.

CRITSEC[0x10d08a8]: Trying to leave destroyed section.
CRITSEC[0x10d08a8]: Trying to leave destroyed section.

What do you suppose the problem is?

A radeon / ati Graphics problem ? An old package ? Did you read 'dmesg' ?

The latest package > in the 'Packman.repo' is dated 22 Dec 2009.
# zypper in xbmc-beta

Known problems with some xbmc packages :
http://forums.opensuse.org/applicati...11-2-xbmc.html

You can also build a new xbmc ..
# zypper in subversion
svn co http://xbmc.svn.sourceforge.net/svnroot/xbmc/trunk

# zypper in <all-185-dependencies>
.. and read the 'README.linux' for instructions + configure options.

The "Packman xbmc-beta" and the xbmc built from source display nice
on Nvidia Graphics.
The " CRITSEC[0x10c60c8]: Trying to enter destroyed section " etc.
seems to be normal behaviour, does no harm.
