Regarding nvidia, you are right, the 304.43 drivers have patched the blue hue thing. I have those on an old Ubuntu. Maybe elrepo will soon have them packaged which means you would not have to bother with libvdpau.


I installed 304.43 but that doesn't fix the blue hue in flash when testing youtube. I think I will still do that patched libvdpau.

Well I'll be damned. I have no blue hue with those drivers in my old Ubuntu 10.04. I got them from the x-swat ppa. Maybe their packagers incorporated the fix.
At least no surprises now when elrepo rolls out those drivers from testing.

Ok, the linuxtech-testing repo now contains updated libvdpau packages (0.5) which include the workaround patch for the blue hue flash player issues.

These libvdpau 0.5 packages should be 100% backward compatible with any apps built with libvdpau 0.4.1 and most likely also 100% compatible with all other EL6 third party repos that were using 0.4.1.

I will move these libvdpau 0.5 packages to the linuxtech-release repo in a few days if I don't get any reports about problems with them.

With the 0.5 release of libvpau the flash blue hue problem should be fix in Firefox and Seamonkey but it might still be present in Opera and Konqueror (I haven't tested these).

Thank you tux99, the .5 package solves the blue hue in both Firefox and Seamonkey.
It doesn't in Opera for some or other reason, funny thing is that some vids do seem OK.

Yes, that's what I expected as Mageia has an additional libvdpau patch to fix the flash blue hue in Opera and Konqueror, but that patch doesn't work on EL6 as it makes use of the /proc/self/comm device that's not available with the EL6 kernel (only newer kernels have it).

If someone can adapt this patch to EL6 I will gladly apply it:
http://svnweb.mageia.org/packages/updates/2/libvdpau/current/SOURCES/libvdpau-workaround-flashplayer-konq-opera.patch?view=markup&pathrev=275322

Seamonkey 2.13.1 (equivalent to Firefox 16.0.1) RPM packages are now available in the linuxtech-testing repo.
I'll move them to the linuxtech-release repo in a few few days unless anyone finds any problem with them.

Hmm, EPEL has started packaging Seamonkey for EL6 a couple of weeks ago (although they are stuck at 2.12.1 for now), I have to see if they stick to updating it regularly then I might stop packaging Seamonkey as the EPEL package should be just as good (it's a port of the Fedora Seamonkey package).

Working well - thank you tux99. Wonder when EPEL will have it in their repo and whether the version will be up to date.

Thanks for testing it. EPEL has Seamonkey (still 2.12.1) in the EPEL testing repo already, what need to be seen if their Seamonkey packager sticks to updating it regularly.

It looks like the EPEL Seamonkey releases are timely and regular, they already have 2.14 in epel-testing and even released the minor release 2.13.2 which I couldn't be bothered with.

I might still release 2.14 (haven't decided yet) but I'd recommend to anyone who has been using the Linuxtech Seamonkey package to move to the EPEL Seamonkey package as I won't be doing regular Seamonkey packages anymore (no need to duplicate the effort of the EPEL packager).

TBH I'm glad for the fact that EPEL now supports Seamonkey as it was becoming a bit of a chore for me due to the too frequent releases and the fact that a Seamonkey build takes more than 3 hours on my PC (for each arch!). smile.gif
