Bug Description

I installed the latest 2.6.32-19 kernel and I noticed that this gave me XV support for videos. However, when I try to use Totem or MPlayer with XV video output my computer crashes with a message 'Could not write bytes. Broken Pipe'

To recreate this issue I just open a video file (x264 video, ac3 audio for track 1, aac audio for track 2, muxed to MKV container) with mplayer using XV video output and it instantly crashes.

This problem is not present when using linux-image-2.6.34-020634rc3-generic_2.6.34-020634rc3_i386 from:
http://kernel.ubuntu.com/~kernel-ppa/mainline/v2.6.34-rc3-lucid/linux-image-2.6.34-020634rc3-generic_2.6.34-020634rc3_i386.deb

I am able to play video files using XV in mplayer after I installed this kernel.

I see that this got listed as a duplicate of bug #555579. When I submitted this bug there was no bug #555579. Wouldn't bug #555579 be considered a duplicate of this bug since it was reported 2 days after?

You are correct: someone duped Bug #555685 & Bug #555685 to bug #555579 so I followed suite. Yours has precedence over 555579 and indeed over some others. All in all the following are dupl. of Bug # 554432: 555579, 555685, 556166, 559214, 557584.

@Tim Clark: Do you want to sort this out? I should prolly have left well alone when I spotted some dupes before aborting an apport report on this bug . IMO, bad searching by launchpad/apport is probably responsible for some of the duplication one sees.

Yeah, I marked two as duplicate of 555579 before I realised 554432 exists. I don't know how to fix that.

Problem is still present in the 2.6.32-21 kernel as well. I hope this gets fixed before the 10.04 release. When people upgrade to a LTS release and things that worked in 9.10 are broken, it leaves a bad taste in their mouth.

This bug is a regression introduced by a patch with was made to solve bug #488328. I've made a new bug entry (#563386) which has a small patch as attachment. This patch reintroduces the deleted two lines of code and the Xv-overlay mode works again.

So also the following URL for the mentioned change :

http://lists.freedesktop.org/archives/intel-gfx/2010-February/005902.html

Both vanilla kernel versions 2.6.33.2 and 2.6.34rc4 have the two lines of code still applied. With this kernel versions Xv-overlay mode works perfectly.

Another me too... Present in kernels 2.6.32-19 2.6.32-21 and 2.6.32-22. I am running an i855 graphics chipset with the patch, but it is still present in the -19 which does not need the patch. Is there a workaround other then a 1.6.34 kernel?

Tim Clark, this bug was reported a while ago and there hasn't been any activity in it recently. We were wondering if this is still an issue? Can you try with the latest development release of Ubuntu? ISO CD images are available from http://cdimage.ubuntu.com/releases/ .

If it remains an issue, could you run the following command in the development release from a Terminal (Applications->Accessories->Terminal). It will automatically gather and attach updated debug information to this report.

apport-collect -p linux <replace-with-bug-number>

Also, if you could test the latest upstream kernel available that would be great. It will allow additional upstream developers to examine the issue. Refer to https://wiki.ubuntu.com/KernelMainlineBuilds . Once you've tested the upstream kernel, please remove the 'needs-upstream-testing' tag. This can be done by clicking on the yellow pencil icon next to the tag located at the bottom of the bug description and deleting the 'needs-upstream-testing' text.

If this bug is fixed in the mainline kernel, please add the following tag 'kernel-fixed-upstream'.

If the mainline kernel does not fix this bug, please add the tag: 'kernel-bug-exists-upstream'.

If you are unable to test the mainline kernel, for example it will not boot, please add the tag: 'kernel-unable-to-test-upstream'.

Please let us know your results. Thanks in advance.

Christopher M. Penalver, I understand the reason for checking later distributions, but... 10.04 is still supported. Unfortunately, it seems that the common "solution" is to upgrade to a later distribution, which may not be an option for some people. It is a good troubleshooting step, but it is not a solution.

And on that note, I may grab a laptop and start looking into this problem and giving data. I just hate the idea of a supported version, that I am using on most of my installations, ignored.
