Sorry, forgot to mention that I have a laptop (IBM T60) with an ATI Mobility
Raedon x1300. Xorg.conf shows that F9 is using a Raedon driver. As a test, I
told xorg to use VESA, but than X would not start. I than put 'ATI' in the
driver section of xorg and X was able to start, but the video player issue with
OGG files still exists.
Are you using compiz or another compositing manager? If so, try without.
Does it work with the GStreamer backend (switch using "totem-backend -b
gstreamer" as root), or xine (in the xine-ui package)?
No Compiz or anything like that installed. Just plain Fedora 9 LiveCD installed
with adobe flash.
I'll try the gstreamer backend and report back. Thanks
switching to the Gstreaner backend doesn't resolve the issue. I even uninstalled
the xine backend just in case.
I guess I'll wait until Livna releases an ATI driver for F9 in the repo and
install it to see if that fixes the issue.
Changing version to '9' as part of upcoming Fedora 9 GA.
More information and reason for this action is here:
This has been solved after receiving one of the xorg-x11-drv-ati updates soon
after the F9 final release. Works like a charm now. ;)
I'm not sure how to close this bug report, so I just changed it
