#53759 assigned defect

mplayer binary seems broken on macbook 5,1 running Sierra

Reported by: fieldlab Owned by: jeremyhu (Jeremy Huddleston Sequoia)
Priority: Normal Milestone:
Component: ports Version: 2.4.1
Keywords: Cc:
Port: MPlayer


Installed Sierra on an older Macbook 5,1 unibody, uninstalled all ports and reinstalled macports and all ports per macports instructions. Never saw so many fast binary installs, and most worked but mplayer had to be compiled from source and seems to be fine. Here is the error returned by the binary-

# mplayer ~/Movies/2016\ Wake/Wake.mp4 
MPlayer 1.3.0-4.2.1 (C) 2000-2016 MPlayer Team
224 audio & 451 video codecs

MPlayer interrupted by signal 4 in module: demux_open
- MPlayer crashed by an 'Illegal Instruction'.
  It usually happens when you run it on a CPU different than the one it was
  compiled/optimized for.
  Verify this!
- MPlayer crashed by bad usage of CPU/FPU/RAM.
  Recompile MPlayer with --enable-debug and make a 'gdb' backtrace and
  disassembly. Details in DOCS/HTML/en/bugreports_what.html#bugreports_crash.
- MPlayer crashed. This shouldn't happen.
  It can be a bug in the MPlayer code _or_ in your drivers _or_ in your
  gcc version. If you think it's MPlayer's fault, please read
  DOCS/HTML/en/bugreports.html and follow the instructions there. We can't and
  won't help unless you provide this information when reporting a possible bug.
