Thread: OpenSuse 11.0 post-installation issues no videos, no midi

  1. #1

    Default OpenSuse 11.0 post-installation issues no videos, no midi

    Hi everybody.

    I just installed OpenSuse 11.0 over my previous 10.3, that worked well (the hardware is a Dell Latitude notebook with the Intel 965 GM chipset). Now and before I am using KDE 3.5.
    Everything is ok in the new installation (with the Yast-based software management super-fast!), but for two problems:

    1. midi does not work anymore. For example:
    Code:
    kmid file.mid
    does not generate any error, but no sound is obtained (the same with TuxGuitar). Note that (i) with my previous 10.3 midi was ok, and (ii) the sound card and the mixer are working correctly (I can play music with Amarok, for example).
    --> Any suggestion?

    2. videos cannot be reproduced anymore. For example:
    Code:
    vlc file.avi
    generates the following:
    Code:
    VLC media player 0.8.6h Janus
    X Error of failed request:  BadAlloc (insufficient resources for operation)
      Major opcode of failed request:  140 (XVideo)
      Minor opcode of failed request:  19 ()
      Serial number of failed request:  86
      Current serial number in output stream:  87
    and stops, whereas:
    Code:
    kaffeine file.avi
    generates the following:
    Code:
    [mpeg4 @ 0xb563e670]Invalid and inefficient vfw-avi packed B frames detected
    [mpeg4 @ 0xb563e670]Invalid and inefficient vfw-avi packed B frames detected
    and runs without video (only sound).
    Once more, note that with my previous 10.3 videos were correctly reproduced.
    --> Any suggestion?

    Thank you!

    In my experience this often leads to sound problems.

    Do you have a version of alsa-oss installed, that is consistent with the remainder of your alsa rpms? I think the oss emulation (that comes with alsa) is used for playing midi (I could be wrong).

    In a case like this, I recommend you check your repositories. Please setup your repositories according to this:
    Repositories/11.0 - openSUSE-Community
    For now, while sorting out this problem, please confine your repos to OSS, NON-OSS, update, and Packman.

    With that in place, then install from YaST software management the Packman packaged versions (not the Novell/SuSE-GmbH packaged versions, if any) of vlc, kaffeine, libxine1, w32codec-all, smplayer. In kaffeine ensure you have selected the xine sound engine.

    Thank you for the kind suggestions.
    I have tried both, but unfortunately neither of them fixed the related problem, that is, after the changes... nothing changed... and videos and midi still don't work, exactly with the same behavior described in my initial post.

    Any further suggestion would be really appreciated.

    How about showing us what you have installed in this area, so we can do a quality check? Please post the output of:
    rpm -q libxine1
    rpm -q vlc
    rpm -q kaffeine
    rpm -qa | grep alsa


    Also, can you point to a location on the web where there are videos / sound files of the exact format that are giving you a problem, so we can check them out, and possibly give you a more exact answer?

    One other thought (I should have mentioned this before, but I forgot). Ensure you have "timidity" installed.

    Here you find the data on my currently installed sw:
    Code:
    libxine1-1.1.14-0.pm.0
    vlc-0.8.6h-1.pm.1
    kaffeine-0.8.6-54.1.pm.0
    alsa-utils-1.0.16-35.1
    alsa-1.0.16-39.1
    alsa-oss-1.0.15-48.1
    alsa-firmware-1.0.16-24.1
    alsa-plugins-1.0.16-57.1
    plus
    Code:
    timidity-2.13.2-207.1
    that is installed too.

    I would say that any single .avi and .mpg file I tried is not shown, and the same for the midi files.
    Note also that I have tried different movie players (vlc, totem, kaffeine, mplayer), and all are unable to display the video.
    For example, this is the result that I obtain when executing
    Code:
    mplayer mymovie.avi
    :

    Do you have xvid installed (from packman)?

    And as already requested:

    XVid: it seems to be there...

    Code:
    linux-tqc3:~ # rpm -q xvid
    xvid-1.1.3-0.pm.0
    An example of avi file that generates the errors: I fear that any file would do it.
    As an example, take for instance:

    http://voronoi.sbp.ri.cmu.edu/projec...s/longpath.avi

    that, after being downloaded:

    The video plays no problem with smplayer, xine-ui, and vlc. It also opens up with avidemux no problem.

    But that file has NO audio.

    The file uses divx, so install divx and divx4linux from the Packman repository.

    I didn't know avidemux: I installed it, and (magic...???) the sample file works in it.
    On the other hand, the already mentioned problems remain on both vlc, totem, and mplayer. For example:

    Code:
    luca@linux-tqc3:~/Desktop> vlc longpath.avi
    VLC media player 0.8.6h Janus
    [00000571] dc1394 demuxer error: Bad MRL, please check the option line (MRL was: longpath.avi)
    X Error of failed request:  BadAlloc (insufficient resources for operation)
      Major opcode of failed request:  140 (XVideo)
      Minor opcode of failed request:  19 ()
      Serial number of failed request:  84
      Current serial number in output stream:  85
    What's the point?

    Finally: can you be so kind to tell me "the right way" to get divx and divx4linux from the Packman repository?
    I have the Packman repository (Index of /pub/packman/suse/11.0) mounted in Yast, but the list generated by searching "divx" in the Software Management module does not seem include any useful item...

    tks
