Newbie Xine Problems


Hi, I just recently installed xine and xine-ui to play dvds and vcds and everything seemed to work fine at first, but the problem I am having is that whenever I adjust the volume through the gui the gui seems to freeze for a little while and then after a couple seconds it will unfreeze and the volume will then change. The audio and video keeps playing fine tho. Any help would be great. If anyone needs more information let me know what you would like.(i had no idea what it could be so I didnt want to post of a lot of useless information)

thanks,
Eats

as root type ::
hdparm -c -d /dev/hdX
and show the output here....
and if it says command not found, then you will have to type either:
/usr/sbin/hdparm -c -d /dev/hdX
or
/sbin/hdparm -c -d /dev/hdX
i think its located in /sbin on redhat, but its in /usr/sbin in slack, but in any case you'll figure it out...
NOTE::
for the above statements you'll have to replace the X in /dev/hdX with the proper device for you dvd player.

I ran the command you requested and recieved this info -
*************
/dev/cdrom:
IO_support = 0 (default 16-bit)
using_dma = 1 (on)
*************

thanks for your time

ok try typing again as root ::
hdparm -c1 /dev/hdX to set the IO to 32bit...if it says permission denied, you can add it to a startup script (ex.. /etc/rc.d/rc.local or /etc/rc.d/rc.sysinit) and restart to make the changes take affect....and remember you only have to do this if it says permission denied when you try to change it...
and then try your dvd player and see if the same happens..
the same for X stands true as before in this statement also
and while your at it, check all your IDE devices connected to your machine with the same command hdparm -c -d and see if they are all set to 32bit and dma ON

well the next thing i would try would be to narrow it down to see if xine is the problem or not by trying other apps to play your dvd such as the popular mplayer...
