Summary: MPlayer 1.0pre6MPlayer 1.0pre6 RTC Issues

Updated BLFS to MPlayer-1.0pre6, however there is an issue with MPlayer wanting regular users to have access to /dev/rtc and then after giving that access, MPlayer complains that the value of /proc/sys/dev/rtc/max-user-freq is too low (needs to be 1024).

These issues are currently being discussed in

Just in case you do not know already: MPlayer needs the RTC to run at 1024 Hz to be able to use it, and the message is only a warning - it will cost a bit of performance if it can't use it, nothing more. Three known solutions: disable RTC via configure (bad idea IMHO) or add echo 1024 > /proc/sys/dev/rtc/max-user-freq to the startup script or ignore those messages ;-)

Just a reminder for after 6.0, this should be fixed correctly by the sysctl script. 'echo "dev.rtc.max-user-freq=1024" >> /etc/sysctl.conf' echo is good when only changing one value.
