Linux 18.104.22.168, GNU (Slackware 12.0)
Although mplayer is not a part of the Slack distros, I think
the issue is more in connection with the system setup and
thefore I place this post in this forum. What is it with mplay-
er? I've installed and reinstalled slackware 12.0 many times.
And each time I have built mplayer from the sources and it
has run fine. In the one before the last slack 12 installation,
with subsequent building and installation of MPlayer, some-
thing went wrong. And the same can be said of the present
installation. Every source mplayer reproduces, it does it
fine, with the exception of CD-ROM. No matter the
CD-ROM I insert (I have them of the highest quality, bought
out of the shelf) or the CD-ROM unit I use. The result is
always the same: the sound is faulty, as if the machine had
not enough speed. And I repeat. MPlayer played CD-ROMs fine
in the past and under the same conditions. Or almost the
same conditions, because something must obviously have
Some additional data:
(a) Window$MediaPlayer plays them fine on the same machine.
(b) I invoke it from the physical console.
(c) KsCD under xfce plays them fine.
(d) I am able to load an o.s. from both CD-ROM units on
the machine. All the more so, should audio be "correcty"
read off the CD.
(e) Now I remember the last time I compiled mplayer with GUI
Thanks in advance and regards.
