Sabayon3.5 DVD Live - Realplayer crashes!

Postby Richlion » Sun Jul 20, 2008 14:35

Hello,

I was trying to use the new Sabayon 3.5 x86 live dvd to see if there are things that work or not. Twice I booted and tried to watch a Realplayer movie .rm. It crashes after opening a file:
The program 'realplay.bin' received an X Window System error.
This probably reflects a bug in the program.
The error was 'BadMatch (invalid parameter attributes)'.
(Details: serial 36 error_code 8 request_code 139 minor_code 13)
(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.)


Has anyone tried running the new Realplayer with this version of Sabayon? I do not have any problems with the version I have with Sabayon 3.4f, both from my installation and the DVD live.

Could this be a problem with running it from the live DVD?

Do you have a link to such media so we can test it?

Hi ,

it's a file I saved a few months ago, pretty large in size, not available online anymore. I'll try to find an example available online.

Regards,
Richard

I couldn't get the RealPlayer bundled with Sabayon 3.5 (x86-64) to work either so I removed it and installed RealPlayer 11
http://www.real.com/linux
RealPlayer11GOLD.bin
It installed with no problem and works very well for me.

Edit: It's important to install it as root - it will install as a user but that can be problematic.

Hi,

thanks, but did you use emerge to install the new version? I don't see the 11 version in portage.
How did you install it?

Regards,
Richard

PS. I can still play the .rm file with other programs:
- totem - displays things in black and white with distorted colours
- MPlayer - seems to work, but I don't like MPlayer much, you try to resize the window and the width and hight are adjusted too high or too wide

Code: Select all
su
<enter root password>
chmod a+x RealPlayer11GOLD.bin
./RealPlayer11GOLD.bin


Worked for me :)
