I thought about the xvesa thing too, but I dropped to the prompt and typed xorgwizard and made sure to choose xorg. Still didn't help.

Problem solved. I installed gray's prop NVIDIA driver and everything's smooth and fast. If anyone has my problem, gray's drivers are at the link below.

Thanks for your help, tempestuous.

PostPosted: Thu 29 May 2008, 01:20    Post_subject: mplayer and also xawtv can't find libraries in Puppy 4.00  

@tempestuous:

On latest Puppy 4.00 (Dingo) frugal install with new pup_save file
kernel: 2.6.21.7

Installed:
http://minipc.org/ipup/download/MPlayer-1.0rc2.pet
and
MPlayer-extra-libs.pet

Rebooted and from console ran: gmplayer
Gives following error:

gmplayer: error while loading shared libraries: libXvMC.so.1: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

ALSO

Installed v4lctl.pet and xawtv-3.95.pet
from http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=19918

Tried running: xawtv from console
Gives following error:
xawtv: error while loading shared libraries: libXxf86dga.so.1: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

I'm busy packing so haven't been able to look into this further. I'm presuming it is a library path problem?

Yes, once MPlayer-extra-libs.pet is installed both of those library files definitely exist in /usr/X11R7/lib/

I'm away from a Linux computer at the moment, and I can't remember where to define library files ... but /usr/X11R7/lib/ is a standard location, and there are many other files already there ... maybe just run this command -
Code:
ldconfig

Strange, though, that neither I nor sketchman had that trouble?

PostPosted: Thu 29 May 2008, 09:23    Post_subject: mplayer now working  

@tempestuous

I didn't realise Puppy had ldconfig installed (v.2.17.1 didn't). Running that did the trick for mplayer. It starts up now (haven't otherwise had time to test it). Yes, I found it strange that no-one else seems to have needed to run ldconfig or set the lib path environment variable.

xawtv still comes up with an error though:

xawtv: error while loading shared libraries: libXaw.so.8: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

I tried searching for libXaw with Pfind and found libXaw.so.7 rather than .8, so I guess I'll try a symlink tomorrow when I have slept...

Thanks for you help

@bigbass
I'll try out your alternative compilation sometime, if I ever get round to all the other bits and pieces I keep adding to my todo list :-)
Thanks.

What is the difference or problem with BarryK's mplayer - I presume it has a lot of codecs missing or something (it is such a small file comparatively, according to an earlier post anyway)?

Sensible question, and strange that no one else has asked that. My earlier rc1 MPlayer version in November 2006 pre-dates Barry's interest in MPlayer. Then Barry compiled a version of MPlayer during the Puppy4 development phase, but was unhappy with it for reasons I can't recall. That's why MPlayer was made available as a dotpet but was not included in the standard release.

My rc2 MPlayer version continues to be a viable alternative to the official version in that it has significant additional features. These features are comprehensively listed in the first post in this thread, but the main ones are XvMC output, DVD menus, infrared remote control, and IVTV tuner support.

Apart from these features, Barry's version is fine. The official version has the additional technical feature of being compiled against shared ffmpeg libraries, which keeps the size down and allows ffmpeg to be used by other applications. The official dotpet also has the very important "xv" video output option.

mcewanw wrote:

No, no, no. The "extra-codecs-pack" is rarely necessary and highly overrated. These Windows codec dll's are only needed for codecs not supported by MPlayer's inbuilt ffmpeg library. But currently, that really only means RealVideo10/11, which is about 750KB in size (and I have already included this extra codec in my dotpet) so the total uncompressed 22MB size of the codecs pack is a mostly useless consumption of your pupsave file. You would need the extra codecs, for example, if you stumbled across a Microsoft MS-CRAM video file from the 1990's!

mcewanw wrote:

Yes, that would be because I compiled XawTV in an earlier version of Puppy. Now that you have MPlayer installed, XawTV is not really necessary anyway.

Does anyone have the lirc modules compiled for the 2.6.21 kernel in Puppy 4? I've found LIRC-0.8.1modules-k2.6.18.1.pup , but they only seem to be for older puppies (with 2.6.18 kernel).

maddmike, you're the first to ask about infrared remote control in recent times.
I have just attached the LIRC drivers for Puppy3.x and Puppy4.0 to the first post.

Bugs with mplayer...

Please,equalizers are not working very well...There is distorsion of sound when I am using equalizers.

And also there is a problem with displaying of unicode font.I mean letters like this "č ć ž đ",Mplayer can't display properly.Actually some letters looking good,some don't.

I tried with "unicode" and similar settings in Mplayer,no results.

Mplayer gives fatal error. Puppy 4.0.0 with installed xorg_xorg_dri-7.3-1
Screenshot gives error message in terminal and when menu option is used.


Starting at commandline 'mplayer' works ok showing the -options.

I don't know much about fonts, but I just did a Google search for "MPlayer unicode" and I suggest you do the same.
The problem might not be a bug, it may be due to the way that MPlayer interacts with Puppy's fonts. Puppy's font configuration is at /usr/share/fonts/default/
You may need to install a different font?

Again, this is not necessarily a bug with MPlayer. The equalizers may be raising the volume above the maximum volume threshold.
Try reducing the main volume with alsamixer.

Well I can't read the screenshot, but the problem may be what I mentioned in the first post -

UPDATE FOR PUPPY 4.0:
- MPlayer will freeze when launched from the JWM menu. To fix this, open /root/.jwmrc in geany and add a space and "&" to the end of the gmplayer launch command, so it looks like this
Code:
<Program label="MPlayer" icon="mplayer.xpm">gmplayer -msglevel all=-1 %U &</Program>
