   Be gentle now, I realize it's probly a PEBKAC.  Let me get this 
out'a the way first.....

MPlayer dev-SVN-r24795-4.1.2 (C) 2000-2007 MPlayer Team
CPU: Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Duo CPU     T7700  @ 2.40GHz (Family: 6,

   (I update every day or so)

$ uname -a
Linux localhost.localdomain 2.6.23-6.fc8 #1 SMP Thu Oct 11 14:54:16

   (Fedora rawhide, updated daily)

   But the problem that has baffled me for months, OK 2 or 3 months.  
Absolutely no problems with compilin svn update(s), an 
mplayer/mencoder work flawlessly (Thanks).  Well, cept contrast 
(1-2), brightness (3-4), an snd volume (9-0) work as expected.  
Tint (5-6) an color (7-8) don't.  NBFD, I suspect it's a HW problem 
anyhow.  New T61 Thinkpad (kybd)?

   Nope, the deal that's got me upsidedown an sideways is that if I 
play anything flash (flash-plugin-  installed by 
FF) even those without snd, mplayer goes silent. Complains it can't 
open /dev/snd   Logout/in to KDE 3.5.8 immediately fixes this. 
Mplayer has sound again... till I stumble onto some fsck'n flash 

   OK, I realize flash is a closed source proprietary B$ app... but 
nobody else is seein this  ??
