[vox-tech] mplayer bug?



Hello,

I've installed mplayer but it appears to be buggy, or maybe its learning curve is a little too much :-(

Here is the problem - I wanted to play a rmvb file, and first receive this:

Failed to open /dev/rtc: Permission denied (it should be readable by the user.)

question: what's /dev/rtc? how can a normal user have the access to it?

Ok, I su-ed to be root, the permission issue is gone, the video clip went on for about 20 sec, then came this:

debian:/home/hai# mplayer Entertainments/pulp_fiction.rmvb

MPlayer interrupted by signal 11 in module: decode_video
- MPlayer crashed by bad usage of CPU/FPU/RAM.
  Recompile MPlayer with --enable-debug and make a 'gdb' backtrace and
  disassembly. Details in DOCS/HTML/en/bugreports_what.html#bugreports_crash.
- 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.



Any suggestions? Or do I really have to re-install it as it hints?

Thanks,
Hai
