I'm having a bit of trouble getting anything but plain VESA working....
mplayer -vo vesa works fine.
mplayer -vo svga:XX acts as if the vsync is whacked; sound plays fine,
but the image is flickering. Different values for XX will cause
different ways of flicker; the best I can get is vertical scrolling.
mplayer -vo vidix fails with can't initialize vo device.
mplayer -vo vesa:vidix fails with can't initialize vo device.
mplayer -vo svga:vidix segfaults.
I am using mplayer from CVS from December. Time for a new tarball? I
am using i810 chipset, too, not directly supported by some of these drivers.
So, is there a HOWTO somewhere for a non-X installation?
