Yes, and since then I've upgraded my entire ports collection also. I don't
think is a mplayer issue, though, because xvinfo reports "no adaptors
present". I don't know too much about how all this fits together, and
can't say if this is an xorg issue, kernel issue, or other, but I am
certain that sometime in the not-to-distant-past XVideo did work on this
How is that? What should I look into? Is it possible that a buildkernel
could stir xvideo up in the -beta to -release upgrade, when the kernel
config file has been left untouched?
