Your comparisons are flawed in several aspects.
First XP vs linux is like comparing apples ad oranges.
The resource useage, design and drivers are different.

You have not described (The poster in the link does not either) the
hardware specs and exactly when the tearing starts.

When you describe an exact report of the hardware involved any
drivers/modules used for the hardware and when the tearing starts
creates a point that someone can help you better.

What type of DVD. Is a media DVD like music or a video?

If other than the above type of dvd as root type this:

mount /dev/sr0 /mnt/dvd

You should be able at that point you
should be able to browse the contents of
the DVD is a file manager.

/dev/sr0    /mnt/cdrom   iso9660   defaults,noauto,ro,user   0 0

I just installed Vlocity 7.0 and i lost my DVD drive. I understand that i should mount it but i dont know how. I've tryed command: mount /mnt/cdrom and it gives me back:  mount: no medium found on /dev/sr0
So i browse to /dev/sr0 and try to open the file but it gives me this: Failed to open file '/dev/sr0': No medium found
Heres my /etc/fstab:

 /etc/fstab: static file system information.

The reason that I asked was because I have had the opportunity to compare a few different operating systems (Windows XP incluted), an I observed that Windows XP does NOT exhibit the "tearing" that I mentioned. But I did find something on the internet at the following link that I think will b of help to others:

There is no single, easily identifiable cause for "tearing". It depends on your hardware, the drivers for your hardware, your OS, the playback software, the codecs used, and the properties of the video files being played. Only way I've found to figure it out is trial and error.

Is there some sort of a patch available for Vector Linux that will prevent "tearing" whenever videos are played?

I am using Vector Linux 7.0 with the Nvidia proprietary drivers, and I would like to know how to get the settings transferred my root account to my user account. Any assistance in that matter will be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Moved /etc/at.deny to /etc/at.deny and "at" now accepts user.  Smiley

I needed this info right now. Thank you.
mv /etc/ /etc/at.deny, right?
