Smile Video/Driver Issue


Well, I think it's a driver issue, not quite sure. I'm a newbie in slackware. Installed slackware 12.1, never had such a problem in openSuse or Ubuntu, when I'm trying to play a video it's not rendering properly, the screen goes greenish. The sound is working fine. I'm using a Intel 945 mobo,with Core 2 Duo 2.2Ghz CPUs. Plz help me resolve this issue.

PS- Sorry for reposting this, had posted in the wrong forum earlier. :blush:

What video card are you using and what xorg driver? What is the output when you run xine-check? Could you post your xorg.conf?

I have figured out the problem is with my video driver. I'm using the omboard graphics driver of Intel 945G express chipset. However, in Xorg.conf in "device" section only VESA is showing and not intel. How do I install the IntelGfx.tgz driver?

If you did a full install, it's already there.

ls /var/log/packages/*intel*
/var/log/packages/xf86-video-intel-2.2.1-i486-1

There is documentation included with the package
man intel

Or here
http://www.x.org/wiki/IntelGraphicsDriver
or
http://www.intellinuxgraphics.org/documentation.html
or
http://alcor.concordia.ca/manpages/sys4/intel.4.html

Or you can read man Xorg, which will lead you to do Xorg -configure to auto-magically spit out an xorg.config that was generated from probing your hardware. Test that config, backup the one in /etc/X11, then copy the new one over, and startx again.

Or ... just maybe .... changing vesa to intel might do the trick
