Mint 16 Graphics driver issue in Thinkpad SL510

Postby lectrode on Wed Apr 30, 2014 6:35 am

Hello everyone. I recently switched from M$ W7 to Linux Mint 16 XFCE (about 4 weeks ago) as my main operating system. Since then I've been working non-stop learning the linux environment and exploring this under-recognized operating system.

I've succeeded in getting many of the windos apps I'm used to working with running without issue with WINE. However, there are a couple pieces of software that have been persistent in their stubbornness to run. One of these programs is DUAM PotPlayer, which is one of the best media players currently available for any operating system. It supports more codecs than any other media player I've come across, including VLC and MPlayer. Needless to say, I would very much like to see this working in Linux on my computer.

According to this it works with the latest version of WINE as long as you install a couple of native dll overrides: quartz and devenum. Unfortunately this does not seem to be enough to make it work on my computer.

It was suggested to me that the cause may be a broken graphics driver. The following crash output snip was pointed out as seeming to suggest that:
Code: Select all
wine: Unhandled page fault on read access to 0x000001ec at address 0xf13b0a54 (thread 0009), starting debugger...
Unhandled exception: page fault on read access to 0x000001ec in 32-bit code (0xf13b0a54).
