i810 driver for XF86 4.3.0
I'm wondering if anyone else knows why xine or mplayer (both the latest versions) always have a blue bar on the side of its video window when I'm using the XV driver. A quick search on google told me that the i810 driver is slightly incorrect, and a patch was provided. But this was version 4.1 of XFree86 or something. Is there another reason why I'm seeing this blue bar? Also, what's the difference between the XV and XShm?
My laptop is an Acer travelmate 610 running Slack 9.0. Its graphics chip is an i815EM.
Any help on this would be appreciated!
