yet another MPlayer problem
 
Hello!
A few days ago everything was working fine, I could watch movies, using x11/xv video output, fullscreen, just perfect... But yesterday I tried to install fedora core 3 and didn't like it at all, so I returned to slack (yep, reinstalled the system). I left my home partition untouched so it was very easy to retrieve the system. Nevertheless, now I've a great problem with MPlayer - x11/xv don't work at all, I can still use -vo x11, but without fullscreen, and zoom/vm don't work. Why is it so, that there is now error while opening x11/xv device, when there wasn't such error just a day ago? I've done X -configure correctly, I think. At least my video driver *was* recognized.

What video driver do you use ? vesa ? (look at xorg.conf) Also did you set your monitor resolution
(again in /etc/X11/xorg.conf) Are you a member of video group ?

This is what I have under "device" section in xorg.conf (it was detected by X -configure):
...
Identifier "Card0"
Driver "savage"
VendorName "S3 Inc."
BoardName "86C380 [ProSavageDDR K4M266]
BusID "PCI:1:0:0"

And here's my "screen" section:
Section "Screen"
Identifier "Screen0"
Device "Card0"
Monitor "Monitor0"
DefaultDepth 24
SubSection "Display"
Viewport 0 0
Depth 1
EndSubSection
SubSection "Display"
Viewport 0 0
Depth 4
EndSubSection
SubSection "Display"
Viewport 0 0
Depth 8
EndSubSection
SubSection "Display"
Viewport 0 0
Depth 15
EndSubSection
SubSection "Display"
Viewport 0 0
Depth 16
EndSubSection
SubSection "Display"
Viewport 0 0
Depth 24
EndSubSection
EndSection

I've also just added the name of the user to the /etc/group :
video::18:raffi

It doesn't help.

Try add a line between each Viewport and Depth lines of each SubSection "Display" like :

...
Subsection "Display"
Depth 8
Modes "1280x1024" "1024x768" "800x600" "768x576" "640x480"
ViewPort 0 0
EndSubsection
...

I did what you said, so that it looks now just like that:

Section "Screen"
Identifier "Screen0"
Device "Card0"
Monitor "Monitor0"
DefaultDepth 24
SubSection "Display"
Depth 1
Modes "1024x768" "800x600" "640x480"
Viewport 0 0
EndSubSection
SubSection "Display"
Depth 4
Modes "1024x768" "800x600" "640x480"
Viewport 0 0
EndSubSection
SubSection "Display"
Depth 8
Modes "1024x768" "800x600" "640x480"
Viewport 0 0
EndSubSection
SubSection "Display"
Depth 15
Modes "1024x768" "800x600" "640x480"
Viewport 0 0
EndSubSection
SubSection "Display"
Depth 16
Modes "1024x768" "800x600" "640x480"
Viewport 0 0
EndSubSection
SubSection "Display"
Depth 24
Modes "1024x768" "800x600" "640x480"
Viewport 0 0
EndSubSection
EndSection

Unfortunately, it still does no good :( Any other ideas?

Ok! I've just managed to do it! It seems, that my HorizSync value was wrong. I've been googling for it for quite a long time (hp pavilion zt1170 laptop), but with no results. After all, I started picking up values randomly, and eventually got the correct one! Anyway, thanks for advice!
