New F8 hangs after mplayer and codec installations during BBC test.



Hi, everyone,
	I am attempting to move my whole network to F8... Yes, I know that
something stable might be better, so lets skip those comments, OK?

	My current issue is with an HP Pavillion a8010n AMD K8 system with
Silicon Integrated Systems video on board, 1G of memory.  It all seems
to work fine until (while following Finley's configuration site), I
install mplayer and mplayer codecs.  At that point, when I bring up
video on the suggested bbc website, the system hangs.  No error
messages, no control whatever, function keys will not return control,
and I have to power down to reboot.  At this time I am running the
memory test on the system just to eliminate that possibility.  Following
the pulse audio on going debate, I haven't seen anyone quite mentioning
the issue I am seeing.  After this memory test runs, I will see if I can
see the error logs using chroot with the rescue mode of the F8 DVD.  Any
suggestions on how to proceed will be gratefully accepted and followed.

Regards,
Les H
