View Full Version : mplayer just dies...

6th September 2007, 03:51 AM
Hi all,

Whenever I start gui mplayer, it tries to start and then just dies. When I run mplayer in a terminal, I see this:

mplayer: error while loading shared libraries: /usr/lib/libtheora.so.0: cannot restore segment prot after reloc: Permission denied

The permissions on the directory /usr/lib are:

drwxr-xr-x 109 root root 69632 2007-09-05 13:15 lib

and on that file in particular:

-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 298720 2007-08-16 13:56 libtheora.so.0.2.0
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 18 2007-08-30 23:01 libtheora.so.0 -> libtheora.so.0.2.0

Any idea how I can fix this? I'm still really new to linux and any help would be greatly appreciated...

it might be selinux if fully enabled , go into the security settings and if its enforcing then set it to permissive and try again..

wintersm...you da man! Thanks so much...setting SELinux to permissive did the trick.
