Posted by msuho on Jan. 27 2006,20:50I downloaded mplayer.dsl from the repository onto my DSL 2.1b HD install.
The icon doesn't launch from the the desktop. If I launch gmplayer from the command line, I get the following output:

Am I missing some X dependency or setup?
The DSL info for this package says it was done in DSL 0.91. I'm willing to fall back to an older DSL version, if that'll do the trick.
Any ideas appreciated,
Posted by plinej on Jan. 28 2006,03:19I can use it fine in a dsl 2.1b frugal install. It looks more like something to do with your XFree86 config. Sorry I can't help more.
Posted by msuho on Jan. 30 2006,13:07Hey, at least now I know it's possible.
I'm using fluxbox w/XVesa. I'll mess around a bit with my settings & see if there's a difference.

Your post states:
Thus, I assume you own some Epia. Well the mplayer was compiled for use with MMX and SSE codes as you can see in the message.
The Epias do have MMX (and even 3dnow) but not SSE (as you can see in the message as well).
The mplayer.dsl is compiled for pentium only (BAD).
So you epia-cpu hits some SSE-instruction and bails out with
I have the same prob with my Epia 5000 and Im pretty sure thats the problem.
Quite several mydsl-packages have that very same problem.
You'd have to recompile mplayer for the epia-board on your own.
If its a later version there are even patches around to use the CLE266-mpeg2-decoder. This will speed up your 800mhz alot in dvd-playback.
Hope it helps,
