I. - I haven't figured out how to do an exhaustive search on
bugzilla. 'OLPC' picks up some; 'XO' picks up some; '461806' picks
up some. But let me emphasize once again - bugzilla appears to be
aimed at the problems of developers (and isn't optimal for users).
II. - What for me is an inhibitor is the bugzilla section "tell us
how to reproduce the problem". I have no desire whatsoever to try
to describe how to obtain the Fluendo mp3 codec for an XO, nor how
to follow its instructions for seeing if it works. I have even less
desire to describe where I obtained a static-linked Mplayer, nor how
I have set up my XO for playing movies. [Both the mp3 codec and the
Mplayer application work fine in 8.2.1.] What good would it do for
me to enter a bugzilla report? A dozen people would ask me for more
information, and for more "try this and try that". I have better
things to do with my time.
> What do you mean by 'moving
> pictures', do you mean recording video or playing video?
I don't try to record video - so I have no idea if it works or not
(see what I mean about being asked questions which I don't know how
to answer?). The 'Record' activity does not show me a picture of
what the XO camera is supposed to be seeing. The 'watch&listen'
activity gives me neither 'sound' nor 'moving pictures'. [IIRC, it
can close prematurely.] Mplayer runs, but gives me neither 'sound'
nor anything except a blank screen.
