Xine player for DSL is ready for testing....
See links for screenshots and downloading below...
I am working on a .dsl file for Xine Player. I started building it from apt-get installed xine-ui files
On my HDinstall, Xine from apt-get works great... It even resizes the screen with wma's, mpg's, avi's, !!
(something I couldn't get MPlayer to do with XVesa)
When I was installing the apt-get sources for xine-ui, it wouldn't install libxv1.....deb, claiming that xlibs already had a libXv.so... installed.
So, I cd to /var/cache/apt/archives , found the new libxv1...deb file, and ran dpkg --contents libxv1.....deb
It showed the libXv.so.1.0 and symlink libXv.so.1 files inside. So, I ran dpkg -i --force-all libxv1....deb, and it installed..
Xine runs!! Hooray... but later....
after building the .dsl file from this successfully running copy... I get errors when trying to run xine.dsl from LiveCD about
libXtst6.so, which wasn't even one of the files installed, or included in my original install.. In fact, I can't even find it
on my HD or in my .xine.dsl ??
Now, if I cd to my backup copy of libxv1....deb, and repeat the dpkg -i --force-all libxv1.... , the xine player works!
With no error about this libXtst6.so file anymore....
Is there a way to force the new libXv.so.1.0 to install over the xlibs copy of libXv.so.1.0 when installing the .dsl file,
so the xine.dsl will work ?
Or, is this already happening, and something else is
occurring when I force the libxv1....deb to install ?
Or, am I going to regret this later when xlibs needs to call libXv.so.1.0 for a task ?
