Re: video problem on powerbook g4 in squeeze
Ive got a problem with videos in debian powerpc (squeeze uptodate) on a
video card is:
VGA compatible controller: ATI Technologies Inc RV350 [Mobility Radeon 9600
If I watch video (no matter which player I use (mplayer and vlc)) I get a
picture that is vertically 'distorted'. Kind of every 5 pixels
(horizontically) the picture is moved 5 pixels (vertically)
Anybody got an idea how to fix that?
Is KMS enabled (Kernel Mode Setting)? It is enabled with the latest
version of 2.6.32 kernel in debian testing and it causes problems both
with accelerated openGL (which becomes HW decelerated openGL) and XV
output (which becomes all striped around), at least with the R280 of my
macMini. Check it by the list of inserted modules (lsmod) and to disable
it you have to put the corresponding module in /etc/modeprob.d/blacklist
You can try anyway. For me it solve the problems but YMMV.
