I am trying to watch a DVD using xine - and xine doesn't start up anymore (although it was working fine not to long ago)! How do I get it working properly again (right now it won't even run when I am in "root" mode)?

I too am having issues with xine (and other multimedia applications.)  See included code tags below.  

Perhaps you could try running xine-check in your terminal to see if any issues could be found.  For me it found nothing, but you may have more luck.


Code:
mark:$ xine
xine: error while loading shared libraries: libavutil.so.50: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
vector:/~/slackpacks/LO/RPM
mark:$

So, for me, xine does not work.  I ran xine-check, but that didn't give me anything helpful (see below).

Code:
mark:$ xine-check
Please be patient, this script may take a while to run...
[ good ] you're using Linux, doing specific tests
[ good ] looks like you have a /proc filesystem mounted.
[ hint ] ummm, you're running a strange kernel version.
         Your kernel says, it's version 3.0.8, but I don't know
         anything about this version. That probably means
         You should either upgrade your kernel or upgrade this script.
         press <enter> to continue...

[ good ] intel compatible processor, checking MTRR support
[ good ] you have MTRR support and there are some ranges set.
[ good ] found the player at /usr/bin/xine
[ good ] /usr/bin/xine is in your PATH
[ good ] plugin directory /usr/lib/xine/plugins/2.1 exists.
[ good ] found unknown plugin: xineplug_flac.so
[ good ] found unknown plugin: xineplug_sputext.so
[ good ] found unknown plugin: xineplug_vdr.so
[ good ] found unknown plugin: xineplug_xiph.so
[ good ] found input plugins
[ good ] found demux plugins
[ good ] found decoder plugins
[ good ] found video_out plugins
[ good ] found audio_out plugins
[ good ] skin directory /usr/share/xine/skins exists.
[ good ] found logo in /usr/share/xine/skins
[ good ] I even found some skins.
[ good ] /dev/cdrom points to /dev/sr0
[ good ] /dev/dvd points to /dev/sr0
[ hint ] Your DVD drive seems not to be attached via ATAPI.
         This might be due to the use of an ide-scsi emulation.
         If you really have a SCSI DVD drive, your SCSI controller is likely
         to do perfect DMA, so there's no reason to worry about this.
         However, if you're using ide-scsi, there is a chance that DMA is
         disabled for the DVD drive. Moreover, I don't know how to enable
         DMA in that case, so you probably have to live with some performance
         loss. (FIXME: check for /proc/ide, provide solution)
         press <enter> to continue...

[ good ] found xvinfo: X-Video Extension version 2.2
[ good ] your Xv extension supports YV12 overlays (improves MPEG performance)
[ good ] your Xv extension supports YUY2 overlays
[ good ] Xv ports:  YUY2 YV12 UYVY I420 YUY2 YV12 UYVY I420

What error do you get when using xine in the terminal?
Nothing whatsoever happens as far as I can tell, and to the best of my knowledge I have not made any changes in my system since it was working correctly (although I admit that I did end up having to reinstall the entire operating system from scratch yesterday due to a system crash - something like the "blue screen of death" in Windows, but with a black background instead - which resulted in a loop during which my computer kept getting restarted).

Maybe it is too late for answer, but at least if somebody will run to same problem...

There is clearly stated what us wrong with xine
Code:
xine: error while loading shared libraries: libavutil.so.50:

Maybe you were reinstalling this library, or someother program did something etc.

So install (reinstall) this library and it should work or change the version (downgrade/upgrade) Wink

In another thread somewhere I did find the answer to this library issue (which existed in a few programs).  From the error that points out the lib file, it can be solved by creating a soft link to the lib file named but without the final numerical digit of the named file.  So, above "libavutil.so.50" was named as a file that was not found.  However, on the system the file "libavutil.so" does indeed exist.  So, a soft link to the file needs to be made:

Code:
root:# ln -s /usr/lib/libavutil.so /usr/lib/libavutil.so.50

The above code stems from the error given ("error while loading shared libraries: libavutil.so.50").  If it said "libavutil.so.6320", then that would be the link.

Anyway, I think most of these issues have now been fixed, since I haven't seen any of these errors for a while.
