Hello all,

I recently did a full iso-disk install to Kubuntu Jaunty and really dig 
the new KDE features. The only issue I'm having is that whatever video 
program I use (Dragonplayer, Kaffeine, Kmplayer, etc)... I get audio but 
no video. Just a blue screen. I believe all my codecs are installed, and 
tried running kaffeine with both xine and gstreamer. The only driver 
that seems to work is the xshm, but the video is jumpy and crashes the 

After doing several google searches, I see this has happened in the past 
with other versions of Linux, but couldn't find a solution.

I'm sure this isn't a KDE issue, and although this is a KDE forum, 
perhaps I'm asking in the wrong area. So please forgive me in advance. 
But even if someone can point me in the right direction, I'd be much 
obliged :-)

Also, as a note.... just prior to this (last week) I was running 
Intrepid for several months, and never had the problem.
