Hi ulfr
That sounds like maybe you need to be running  Xorg  to use  vlc.

Hi ulfr
Actually, you need to switch from  Xvesa  to  Xorg.

Assuming you are speaking of the vlc3 extension with Core-11.x...

This seems to work fine:
Code: [Select]
$ tce-load -i graphics-KERNEL alsa-config Xorg-7.7 pavucontrol vlc3
$ startx

..then start pavucontrol and start vlc

the same if xorg is loaded or not 

Code: [Select]

Thats a problem. It means the program needs to execute an instruction that your processor does not support.

I updated vlc3 and forced it to compile for i486, maybe you could update your version and try again?

      hi guys

      tried new vlc3 from repo
      same error

      here is what i did to replicate error

      made home and tce on sda1
     
      downloaded
     
      alsa-config
      alsa
      pulseaudio

      vlc3 
      firefox-ESR 

      loaded them in that order
      firefox-ESR runs plays youtube with sound
      vlc3 give same error and will not start

      vlc3 works with sound on tinycore 10
   
      i note that the deps for vlc3 in 10 and 11 are different

  hi juanito

  thank you for all your help but i fear i am taking up too much of your time
  have other people reported this issue 

  the processor on this machine is an old intel celeron

  however since the vlc3 in tinycore 10 worked and the vlc3 in tinycore 11 didn't
  what has changed between the two

  thanks again

It looks like an instruction that an intel celeron cannot process crept in somehow.

The latest vlc3 was compiled with both "-march=i486 -mtune=i686" and "--target=i486-pc-linux-gnu" and reports it was configured for "architecture          : i486 mmx sse sse2"

Does the tc-10.x vlc3 work in tc-11.x?
