    Doesn't look like you have the 180.22 drivers installed or it cannot find the vdpau or x development headers.

      thanks a million for taking a look deanjo. kernel version shown by uname -r is 2.6.27-9-generic.

      I did install the 180.22 drivers. The Nvidia X Server settings information box shows driver version 180.22.

      As to the last point, I'm not sure what to do to help it find the vdpau or x development headers. should I have moved the folder from the desktop before I did make? again, I'm guessing its something totally obvious. act like you are explaining to a 3 year old...

        ok, maybe I need to check if vdpau is installed (?). sorry to get n00b p00p all over this thread.

          You appear to miss the X development headers. See if there are any packages not installed yet named similar to x11-dev and install them.

            Or just run:

            http://kanotix.com/files/install-nvidia-debian.sh

            that uninstalls the nvidia packages and uses the standard installer.

              thanks for the responses. I just learned that I need to ./configure (?) my mythtv backend with --enable-vdpau and also that I might need a more recent build of mythtv in order to enable this option (installed mythbuntu 8.10 as a first stab at mythtv). Looking forward to getting vdpau going to take the chops out of the playback.

                thanks deano, curaga, kano. Lots of mistakes and learning along the way, but yes, I was missing the X dev headers. Finally got things cobbled together & ran the tool. Output from the 8400GS w 512mb (looks like the G98 core)(does have the 567mhz core clock):

                thanks a million for taking the time to help the clueless. now that this much is working, I need to get into more trouble with getting mythtv to use the GPU.

                  I have a Biostar TF7050-M2 (Nvidia 7050PV onboard). I get this output if I try running vdpinfo:

                  Code:
                  display: :0.0   screen: 0
                  Error creating VDPAU device: 1
                  Do I have something set up wrong? This chipset supposedly supports Purevideo playback: http://www.nvidia.com/object/mobo_gp...ts.html#gf7nf5

                    I have a Biostar TF7050-M2 with 7050PV onboard. I get this:

                    Code:
                    ./vdpinfo

                    Error creating VDPAU device: 1
                    Do I have something set up wrong? I have vdpau and 180.29 drivers installed.

                      Your 7050 has no vdpau capabilities. You have to have a GF8 class+ card to have any vdpau capabilities.
