Running Mplayer in QEMU without an Xserver [SOLVED] Subject description: How to initialize framebuffer?
I try to run mplayer on my puppy Linux (virtual in QEMU) without an xserver.
So I have tested to give mplayer the framebuffer device (mplayer -vo /dev/fb0 trailer.mov)
But I get an Error: Error opening/Initializing the selected video output (-vo) device
So I think I have to activate/initialize/start/whatever the framebuffer. But I have absolute no idea how.
I hope someone can help me
I have searched a little and found the grub config File
In this file is the flowing line:
kernel /boot/vmlinuz root=/dev/sda1 ro vga=normal
If I change the vga value to 0x317 (1024x768 x 16 Bit) I only get an 1024x768 Pixel black QEMU box. But the system behind is running. If I type in reboot, the system goes down.
Is there something else I have to do before the framebuffer works? Or should after this changes the framebuffer work and QEMU is the problem? Last edited by bremer on Thu 30 Apr 2009, 10:08; edited 1 time in total
