Exactly! As I said, something wrong with the setup....of my brain. You 
were correct: that hardware will not do vdpau, so it should not point to 
that library.
On consideration, I'm surprised that it failed the way it did. It may be 
an error with the nvidia installer or maybe just that yum will install 
whatever is demanded, which fooled 'configure', but not make. The 
hardware won't do vdpau, and configure found everything it thought it 
needed. And make failed, which from one point of view it should not have 
done: it should have compiled if everything required is installed, even 
though it could never run vdpau.

That's kinda weird.

On further consideration, it's probably that yum just went ahead and 
installed the libvdpau stuff, even though that was totally unnecessary.

Colin: do you have a 'libXvMCNVIDIA.so' file?


         Please let me know if anything I say offends you.
          I may wish to offend you again in the future.
