    MPlayer-20040605--Crashes


    I recently downloaded and installed the CVS Snapshot of Mplayer (build 20040605) on my Toshiba Portégé 7020CT Laptop running RedHat 9. ./configure, ./make and ./make install went fine. I then loaded a CD containing several .avi files. It crashes and tells me to look at DOCS/HTML/en/index.html for help. I looked at the section "why won't Mplayer work with Fedora Core" and I followed the step-by-step instructions to fix it. I ran mplayer again and got the same error and MPlayer crashes. I can't find anything on this but I don't think it's a bug.

    MPlayer interrupted by signal 6 in module: flip_page
    - MPlayer crashed. This shouldn't happen.
    It can be a bug in the MPlayer code _or_ in your drivers _or_ in your
    gcc version. If you think it's MPlayer's fault, please read
    DOCS/HTML/en/bugreports.html and follow the instructions there. We can't and
    won't help unless you provide this information when reporting a possible bug.

    Xlib: unexpected async reply (sequence 0x94)!


    Any Thoughts? [Note:The Important Part is in Red]
    Thanks!

    I got it

    I played around with mplayer a little bit, and it started working sporatically. Then I changed the video output driver to x11 and that seemed to do the trick! No problems since.
