And now I use 2.95.2 and suggest the same for all RedHat users.
BTW: Arpi, I've checked also 2.95.1 and even egcs (don't remember exactly
what version) and they worked OK. At least for MMX routines, don't know
what about SSE, 3Dnow, etc.

So he was lucky. I've send bugreport to RedHat guys and they even didn't
reply. I've told them everything I know and suggested to check mplayer
compiled on 2.96 (with -vo x11) as an example.
