Re: Xine and 8776 X86_64
I installed 8776 on an Athlon 64-bit system running FC6. I had a difficult time installing nvidia's proprietary drivers (never had a problem with FC3, FC4, or FC5). I finally got it installed - I'm not sure whether adding a symlink from autoconf.h to config.h was the solution (I also tried installing the kmod-nvidia & related modules and then removed them due to repeadted nasty freezes of X11). I used to be able to play HDTV .ts streams perfectly. Now if I use xine, mplayer, or kaffeine, I get very nasty freezes - so bad that I can't ctrl alt F1 to a consol - my only option is to reboot.
Has anyone else run into this problem? How can I test the accelerated graphics? When I start xine, mplayer, or kaffeine, the high def vidio starts nicely but eventually (and quickly) freezes the X11 display. This worked perfectly under FC5. My FC6 is completely updated.
