Apps, Games and Meda Players dissapearing

Post by LMo » Sun Jan 20, 2008 2:04

Hi, haven't been a Sabayon (or linux for that matter) user for long, so i'll need some detailed explanations.

When i try to run a game or play for instance Jeremy Clarksons shootout with movie player, mplayer, vlc player etc, the windows open for a second or two, and then drop to no where never to be seen again. And no matter how many time i try, the video, or game, won't start.

Does anyone have an idea of what could cause this? I've done a search on the forums for "dissapearing windows" and found a topic that might help with video, but nothing for games and apps..

I'm running a standard full installation of 3.4e.

i have the same problem. for example, when i try to watch a movie using Totem i get the error:

The program 'totem' received an X Window System error.
This probably reflects a bug in the program.
The error was 'BadAlloc (insufficient resources for operation)'.
(Details: serial 53 error_code 11 request_code 142 minor_code 19)
(Note to programmers: normally, X errors are reported asynchronously;
that is, you will receive the error a while after causing it.
To debug your program, run it with the --sync command line
option to change this behavior. You can then get a meaningful
backtrace from your debugger if you break on the gdk_x_error() function.)

totem only works when i disable Compiz.
