I am running Slackware Linux 11.0. Until yesterday I could use both my mplayer and vlc players. Today, to my surprise, they both fail to start, complaining:
mplayer: error while loading shared libraries: libvga.so.1: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
vlc:  main interface warning: cannot load module `/usr/lib/vlc/gui/libwxwidgets_plugin.so' (libvga.so.1: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory)
I have no idea what could have happened. I also tried to install the http://www.svgalib.org/svgalib-1.4.3.tar.gz
, but vainly, I always gat mistake during "make install".
Any suggestions will be appreciated. Probably I should reinstall some library, which for some reason has been overwritten?
