Overlay Problems with Xine

Starting xine with an overlay enabled X-server on nvidia graphics boards can lead  to the problem that the xine window appears shortly and then disappears. The following error message can be found in the console when trying to play a dvd:

Dies ist xine (X11 gui) – Ein freier Video-Player v0.99.6.

Removing the  “Overlay” Option from the xorg.conf and restarting the X-server fixes this problem. Yo may also include the line

Option         “Overlay” “off”

into your screen section or device section of your xorg.conf.
