Ok, this is approaching.... no, has passed ridiculous. How hard can
it be to get this blessed XvMC to work? I've bought the card, I've
recomp'd more than several times, I've gotten the latest driver.
nVidia - make the g**-d*** thing work!
I'm running a 6600GT which has worked intermittantly with XvMC in the
past (though refuses to budge now). Running the latest nVidia
"driver" - 766* whatever - with debug on I get:
Using XvMC version: 1.0
XvMC found and using IDCT surface
2005-06-03 21:40:13.788 Using XV port 270
NV-XVMC (ERROR): Authentication failed
Unable to create XvMC Context return status:11 BadAlloc
When running Myth. Does *ANYONE* know what the hell I should/can do
to get this working?
