the radeon_vid.o was indeed created by a make in the vidix driver directory
and then i copied everything over.
deleting everything in the directory /usr/local/lib/mplayer/vidix/ and then
doing a make install in my 1.X mplayer source directory copied the correct
radeon_vid.so into mplayer /usr/local/lib/mplayer/vidix but still it refuses
to find the chip.
make install in my 0.9 sources dierectory leaves me with a working vidix
mplayer again.
./mplayer -vo vesa:vidix in my 1.X sources starts mplayer, even detects the
chip, since it is using the 0.9 radeon_vid.so but i get a black screen,
although the sound keeps playing.
finally using the -nocolorkey option made the picture appear.

so now i have a alsa capable mplayer with a (strangely working)

thx for all the support.
