In answer to your complaints I'd like to give you a tip. It seems to be a
XFree 4.2 problem. When the dri kernel module is loaded it hangs the machine.
Also without that module Xv doesn't work properly for mpeg formats (it used
to in previous versions).
Solution: mandrake 8.2 came with a driver from Gatos (gatos.sf.net) that
fixed these problems. (thanks Mandrake).
With the dri kernel module, I can use Xv (with xine or mplayer), 3D GL apps,
and bttv grabbing without any problem.
