I tried starting X with just an xterm (no GNOME or even window manager)... and playing DVDs using the XVideo extension worked fine. I gradually added in bits of things (running the gnome-panels manually and lots of large apps) and nothing provoked a failure -- until I ran either ROX desktop or Nautilus, but *only* when they were used to draw the desktop, and *only* the desktop had a large image as a wallpaper. I tried loading the same image up into GIMP, but couldn't cause the failure. So, I restarted X as normal, which loaded up the full GNOME desktop... and sure enough the DVD playback failed again. My standard Nautilus setup has a "Vertical gradient" as it's wallpaper (which I assume counts the same as a largeish image). So I set the wallpaper to "Solid" and DVDs playback works. Now I can reliably cause the Allocation error in two ways: 1. Run XMMS before playing (removed all plugins and visualisation stuff just in case) 2. Set Nautilus to have a vertical gradient backdrop, or a large wallpaper. Closing XMMS or setting off the Nautilus backdrop image allows it to work. I'm not sure what to make of it. Clearly something has changed since FC1, and clearly whatever it is XMMS and Nautilus wallpaper are doing something that eats big chunks of space that the XVideo extension requires... but where exactly the fault lies I'm not sure -- is it in the new X.org, since it wasn't a problem in the FC1 version of XFree86? Has anyone got any more ideas... like where is the best place to report the bug in redhat's bugzilla.
