    I had the EXACT SAME ISSUE!!


    If you are also using 64bit, here's how to solve it:

    VLC uses the libva in /usr/lib32

    Got it working.

    I ended up building libva from git when I realised I had to still install the libva*.deb to cover the mplayer and vlc dependencies (It was easier this way).

    [SOLVED] XvBA - can't get HW acceleration to work

    Hi all,

    I (stupidly) bought this without knowing that there are issues with AMD and hardware acceleration. In fact, I didn't know anything on the topic until after I set that machine up.

    [ubuntu] Re: BusyBox v1.10.2 USB Stick

    I have the same problem.

    I've tried the following boot parameters:

    pnpbios=off
    pci=nomsi (worked for me when I had the same problem on my lappy for 8.04)
    noapic
    nolapic
    apci=noirq
  10. [ubuntu] Re: Second hand laptop, terrible battery life, any suggestions?

    I can change the back light on the Desktop, but the lappy doesn't have those options (which is standard).

    Oh well, good enough as is.

    Thanks again, all.
  11. [ubuntu] Re: Second hand laptop, terrible battery life, any suggestions?

    Thanks everyone, I can now charge the lappy (I called it Balthasar, now I have Balthasar and Melchior... Neon Genesis Evangelion) and use it at the same time.

    Next stop, replacing the charger.

    Anyone else having this problem with ATi 8.5? Is it a registered bug?

    I'm going to try uninstalling 8.5 (ATi driver) and try 8.3 (one that worked...)
