Xine/Mplayer picture scrambled


I'm in the process of setting up Slackware 9.1 in a friend's laptop (Gericom 1st Supersonic 1000). Everything went fine and after installing Mplayer+codecs I could play dvd films with it as well as on Xine.

Whilst trying to configure the touchpad I grabbed a XF86Config file from the internet and after copying it across everything still worked fine...except Xine and Mplayer.

Now all I get is the dvd playing but with a srambled picture (every now and then you can see a bit of the film running in the background). I copied back the original XF86Config file but no joy, still scrambled.

I've been googling and looking through the archives here but I've not really come across anything to point me in the right direction. Can anyone help please?

# XF86Config-4 (XFree86 server configuration file) generated by Dexconf, the
# Debian X Configuration tool, using values from the debconf database.
#
# Edit this file with caution, and see the XF86Config manual page.
# (Type "man XF86Config" at the shell prompt.)

sholdn't have anything to do with XFree86... what happens if you try to us a different output in mplayer? try -vo x11 rather than -vo xv? what kind of scramling is it? maybe you have not got a css library installed, or another possibility is that you;re not running it correctly... possibly loading vob files directly rather than using the correct procedures?

Thanks Chris,
I changed the video output in mplayer to 'x11' as suggested and it worked fine and by trial and error 'xshm' kick started xine.

regards,
