Fedora :: 11 Multimedia - Video Players Doesn't Play Video - Show Only Black Window And Play Audio

Aug 23, 2009

To get multimedia working, or explain what I'm doing wrong.

The problem is that none of the video players doesn't play video, they show only black window and play audio.

I have Fedora 11 Leonidas, fully up-to-date.

I have installed rpmfusion and livna repository.

I have installed following packages:

When I try to play video with totem, it doesn't output any error, but just doesn't play video.
with mplayer:

xine and kaffeine just say:


I tried several different files, which works perfectly in windows and ubuntu.

I installed windows binary codecs for mplayer to /usr/lib/codec/

Fedora :: When Click To Minimimize A Window It Closes / Sort It?

Apr 5, 2009

This is probably a really simple one to solve but I haven't figured out the solution. When I click on the minimize button of a window it closes down completely instead of just being minimized to the tray. I hadn't altered any settings manually so wondered why this has started happening in the last week or so. Is there any way I can stop this from happening by going into system settings or whatever. I am using Fedora 10.

OpenSUSE Multimedia :: When Booting Directly To XBMC Get "Failed To Initialize Audio Device"

Jun 10, 2011

have an OpenSuSE 11.4 (Linux with XBMC (10.1) installed.During installation of SuSE, I've created a user called "xbmc" and enabled autologin for this user. After XBMC have been installed I added the following to /home/xbmc/.xinitrc - "exec /usr/bin/ck-launch-session /usr/bin/dbus-launch --exit-with-session /usr/bin/xbmc --standalone -fs"... so far so good - everything is perfectly fine..... or at least almost - when trying to play some musik I get the message "Failed to initialize audio device, Check your Audio Settings"... but if I close XBMC, log in to Gnome as root, open a terminal an su to user "xbmc" and start xbmc from commandline it works if I choose "Internal Analog Audio" in System -> System -> Audio Output. Now the spooky/funny parts appears... I check the options in Audio Output I see the following:

With Autologin:

HDA Intel Defaults


When returning to auto-login - it stops working again... By the way - to be sure that it wasn't a rights-problem, I ended up changing the UID for the "xbmc"-user to "0" to ensure root-privilegies

Fedora :: Failed To Initialize Packaging Backend

Mar 16, 2010

Recently I started getting pop-up saying:

Failed to initialize
Failed to initialize packaging backend
This may occur if other packaging tools are being used simultaneously.
under more details i get:

There are unfinished transactions remaining. Please run yum-complete-transaction as root. I get to terminal, and as a root I try yum-complete-transaction, but it just says there are no unfinished transactions left. I tried to update thru yum, but this is what I get:

# yum update
Loaded plugins: fastestmirror, presto, refresh-packagekit
Determining fastest mirrors .....

After lots of googling, I tried:
"yum clean all",
"rm -f /var/lib/rpm/__db*" + "rpm -vv --rebuilddb" + "yum clean all",

Everything else is working well, and I am able to update with "--skip-broken", but I keep getting this pop-ups. I use fedora 12.

Fedora :: KPackageKit - Failed To Initialize Backend?

Jun 16, 2010

Since Livna went down, I've been having having problems with KPackagekit. I disabled the Libna repo by setting enabled=0 in /etc/yum.repos.d/livna.repo, and have been able to update with Yum.KPackageKit fails on me now with the message "Failed to initialize backend. This may occur if other packaging tools are used simultaneously."Then it fails to finish, which causes me to reboot before I can use Yum successfully.Under Settings, I see no indication that it knows where the repositories are, and no way to add repos.

Fedora :: KPackageKit: Failed To Initialize Packaging Backend?

Feb 26, 2010

I have error in KPackageKit when i try to install anything or check for updates:

Failed to initialize packaging backend. This may occur if other packaging tools are being used simultaneously.

Details: There are unfinished transactions remaining. Please run yum-complete-transaction as root.

I don't know anything about other packaging tools - I think I don't using any. Yum works fine in terminal. Reinstall PackageKit and KPackageKit files doesn't helped me. I also try to rebuilt rpm db:

rm -f /var/lib/rpm/__db*
rpm -vv --rebuilddb
yum clean all

I'm using Fedora 12 x86_64.

Fedora :: Software Update Error - Failed To Initialize The Packaging Backend

Mar 15, 2010

From the GUI, software update gives the error "Failed to Initialize - Failed to initialize the packaging backend. This may occur if other packaging tools are being used simultaneously." In the more details, "There are unfinished transactions remaining.

I run a terminal, switch to root and do as it tells me. It returns saying that there are no unfinished transactions. I've run it several times with the same result. Then I run "yum clean all" and "yum upgrade." The upgrade processes runs and reports "there are unfinished transactions..." However, the upgrade process still completes. Basically it is now a severe annoyance, but the system does seem to upgrade. I just cannot figure out why there are somehow unfinished transactions that I cannot get rid of. I tried reinitializing the rpm database - no luck. How can I somehow reset yum?

Fedora :: (EE) Jul 30 06:32:07 NVIDIA(0): Failed To Initialize The NVIDIA Kernel Module

Ubuntu :: Find A Way To Play A Game Under Wine Without Using The CD?

Jul 26, 2010

I have been struggling to find a way to play a game under Wine without using the CD, so looked if it was possible in Wine. I came across this commmand: Code: sudo mount /home/joseph/BIONICLE.iso -o loop /media/cdrom0/ which I tried. It didn't work, and gave me an error about how there was no "cdrom0". I assumed that it was created whenever something is mounted. Out of desperation, I removed cdrom0 from the command, and then things got funky. Doing so replaced all the contents of /media (there were no files, only useless floppy folders, since I have no floppy drive) with the contents of the ISO file. I tried using sudo to delete the files, but it said that it was a read-only filesystem. I tried changing the permissions using sudo chmod +w /media, but it didn't work, and complained about being read-only. I am unable to mount anything now! Can someone help, both with deleting /media, and possibly with running Wine games without the CD?

Debian Multimedia :: Game Crashes When I Try To Play With Sound / Fix It?

Jan 22, 2011

I have been trying to play this game dawn-rpg.sourceforge.net and it immediately crashes whenever I try to play sounds. The only other sound in this system I have are the sounds for the bash/dash terminal.

So my questions are:-

a. How do I test if the sound system is working alright.
b. Do I need to increase some kind of priorty/niceness to sound systems to make sure they get the available resources (cpu, memory ) whatever it needs ?

On the same topic, while I was searching on the Net I got this link http://rosegardenmusic.com/wiki/low-latency_kernels .

I know this is actually for people who want to make sounds/music but can some of these ideas/instructions be useful for me as well ?

Fedora X86/64bit :: Audio Cd Will Not Play?

Jan 7, 2010

I went to the record store a couple of days ago and bought some CDs. I was able to pop in the first one and rip it no problem. Then, I put in a different CD and I have been greeted with all sorts of nothing. I put the original CD back in and I get nothing. Some example error messages....

When I open Sound Juicer, I am told: "Sound Juicer could not read the track listing on this CD. Reason: Cannot access CD: The specified location is not mounted"

When I open Kaffeine: "Cannot find input plugin for MRL [cdda:/]"

When I try to view the disc in dolphin:"Device does not have read permissions for this account. Check the read permissions on the device."

Fedora :: How To Play Audio Files

May 28, 2011

I'm running Fedora and Gnome on a laptop and I'd like to play an audio file. I installed xmms and the mp3 plugin via yum, and started xmms amd tried to play the file. The progress bar advances as if the file is playing, but there's no sound in my headphones. I do have gnome volume slider bar set to the highest value. I tried running alsamixer and the volume is set to the highest level (however +/- causes alsamixer to exit, and not change the volume level like the F1-Help page says). What can I do?I tried the Gnome filesystem browser and clicked on mp3 or wav file which brings up the totem music player. Again, the progress bar advances as if the file is being played, but no sound.

Software :: Unable To Initialize Audio Mixer : No Available Device / What To Do?

When I run QTads, I get this message:

"Unable to initialize audio mixer: No available audio device"

I've installed libqt4-gui, libsdl-mixer1.2, libsdl-sound1.2, libqt4-network to meet the dependency requirements. I've tried the pre-made binary from the Web site (http://qtads.sourceforge.net/downloads.shtml) as well as my own compiled from source (a binary which has proven to work on other machines also with Debian).

Sound works fine on the system. What can I do?
