Nvidia driver questions
Allright i've managed to install the Nvidia drivers and i would like to use it in combination with Mplayer (URL=http://www.mplayerhq.hu/homepage/design7/news.html]Mplayer[/url])
The only thing i would like to acchieve is get video acceleration while playing video's. I've 2 questions:
1. Has anyone experience with mplayer and the nvidia drivers and do i need XFree86 to use video acceleration or not?
2. How do i test the Nvidia drivers, i installed them and i'm able to run them with XFree86 (latest release) but every time i start XFree86 i get an black screen.
My log file is in the log file.doc (As far i can see no errors!)
My config file is in the Config file.doc
I (still) run the core distro!
Thanks in advance!

Re: Nvidia driver questions
The nVIDIA driver is an X driver -- you do need to be running X to use the driver. You could run mplayer on virtual terminals using vesafb however (or possibly rivafb, but don't try to use riva in combination with the X driver).
You have no resolutions configured in the config file -- duplicate (remove any that you do not want to use) this setup in your config:
SubSection "Display" Viewport 0 0 Depth 24 Modes "1600x1200" "1400x1050" "1280x1024" "1280x960" "1152x864" "1024x768" "800x600" "640x480" EndSubSection
Add the below option to your config file as well (the green):
Section "Device" .. Driver "nvidia" Option "NvAGP" "1" .. EndSection
