If it's for DVDs, VLC is better.

If it's to be a playback library, that's what gstreamer is for.

Probably because it's the old school style, like slackware

GNU nano 2.7.5 "Nijntje"

I didn't try it, but upgrading shouldn't be risky.

I like xine. I use it if I just want to play one video file. VLC for discs (its unoptimized for video files). QMPLAY2 for video files (its playlist is 2nd best behind VLC).

On the subject of Shadow 4.4, I noticed the following on the LFS 8.0 build instructions for it:
Quote:
Fix a security issue identified upstream:
sed -i -e '47 d' -e '60,65 d' libmisc/myname.c
which refers to this (last updated 2009):
Code:
/*@null@*/ /*@only@*/struct passwd *get_my_pwent (void)
{
	struct passwd *pw;
	const char *cp = getlogin ();
	uid_t ruid = getuid ();

	/*
	 * Try getlogin() first - if it fails or returns a non-existent
	 * username, or a username which doesn't match the real UID, fall
	 * back to getpwuid(getuid()).  This should work reasonably with
	 * usernames longer than the utmp limit (8 characters), as well as
	 * shared UIDs - but not both at the same time...
	 *
	 * XXX - when running from su, will return the current user (not
	 * the original user, like getlogin() does).  Does this matter?
	 */
	if ((NULL != cp) && ('\0' != *cp)) {
		pw = xgetpwnam (cp);
		if ((NULL != pw) && (pw->pw_uid == ruid)) {
			return pw;
		}
	}

	return xgetpwuid (ruid);
}
If the issue has indeed been "identified by upstream" then it's not been reflected in any change to git master. Anyone any ideas what this is about?
