Hi,

Zattoo player always worked well on my system (ubuntu 8.04). But this evening, when starting the player, it showed a very strange behaviour.

After login everything seemed to be ok, but when i choose a tv-station i get only audio, but no video and then a few seconds later it begins to grab all my memory and swap space.

The zattoo.errlog file (in /home/myname/.Zattoo/Data/logs/) shows the following messages:



(zattoo_player:10195): GdkGLExt-CRITICAL **: gdk_gl_window_impl_x11_make_context_current: assertion `GDK_IS_GL_CONTEXT_IMPL_X11 (glcontext)' failed

I didn't do any changes in system-settings or upgrades since the last time when zattoo was working well (yesterday).
Removing (incl. conffiles and files in homedirectory) and reinstalling the player had no effect.

I have no idea what went wrong and would appreciate if anyone can help me with my problem.

In my first post i wrote that i did no upgrades, but that was wrong i updated the xserver, and somehow my nvidia-glx package disappeared. After reinstalling it, everything works.
