xine-check - a checker for the xine video player
This manual page explains the xine-checker
is a program, which tests the xine video player
installation for common problems.
If you experience any problem with or while running xine, running
xine-check might provide useful hints for problem tracking.
xine-check tests the operating system settings, installation of plugins,
CD/DVD drive settings and video support parameters.
If run as
it will produce a terse system description and guide you through the process
of reporting a bug. This is the preferred way to report xine bugs, as it's
easier for you and provides the developers with a more complete bugreport.
The program follows usual GNU command line syntax, with long
options starting with two dashes (`-').
A summary of options are included below.
For a complete description, see README and FAQ in /usr/share/doc/xine-ui
or on the xine home page.
Show summary of options and version number.
- -h, --help
The remaining options, labelled
when listed with "xine-check --help", are explained here.
Only give a single one-line messages, even if problems are found.
Normally xine-check provides hints for every problem found to help
solve the problem.
Enable extended output describing each check in detail, which produces
a kind of frequently asked questions (FAQ) list.
Turn off pause after long messages. Normally xine-check waits for
confirmation after a problem was found or a long message was printed.
Produce a bug report. This is the same as calling
- -q, --quiet
none, of course ;-)
Well, there are surely a few of those. You can probably best ask for support
(and report bugs) on our mailing list at <email@example.com>.
This manual page was written by Philipp Hahn <firstname.lastname@example.org> for the xine project.
