Have your tried the other video output plug-ins? SyncFB is only for
Matrox cards. Xv is for cards which have Xv support. Not a very
informative statement, but "xvinfo" should tell you if you have it
(anything longer than five lines). XShm should be available on any
XFree86 4.1-based system

$ xine --help | grep video-driver -A1
  -V, --video-driver <drv>     Select video driver by id. Available drivers: 
                               Xv SyncFB XShm 

Then try xine -VXShm (etc.)
