mpv -vo null file.mp3
This might not be the exact syntax but this is what I use.

That kind of works on my computer. From a tty, I get great audio, but no video. Makes for a very good music player.

I think it's the intended behaviour for audio files (to be used as a CLI music player).

I tried that and did not get any video at all. That's when I found the 'startx /usr/bin/mpv [path_to_video_file]' commands. Probably depends on your processor, as I was reading that the "drm" stands for direct cpu rendering, or something like that. You are asking for the cpu to display the graphics directly, instead of the video card, which is probably why you ultimately lock up.

OpenBSD 6.9.

--mpv and ogg files playing

--cdio and ripping a cd

OBSD has dropped the CD stuff from the FAQ. Here's a sapshot from 2018.

The up-to-date page makes no mention of such an obsolete technology.

Now do video files. And what's the memory usage?

Video opens a new window.

Free only works as root and is not very informative.

Top screenshot tells more.

Here's another shot, playing PSB Westend Girls.

At idle, some 130MB is used.

Void runs on 89mb-117mb if you install the minimal version along with the xorg-minimal package. That's with DWM running. I think the Void devs are out-BSD'ing the BSD devs on some aspects. Maybe on a lot of aspects. If you haven't tried it, you would really have a lot of fun with it.

Hey Loldier – Have you tried htop command…? Great to see such low load.

Wo! that sent me back to ‘69 watching black and white TV show for straight upright regular moral types – favoured drug alcohol - check out this recoloured video and wind up tha volume. Prepare for big surprise around 6:50 in. The Jimi Hendrix Experience live (Colourised) on the Lulu Show 1969 https://tube.cadence.moe/watch?v=sNkapt6r5m8
Dig those flares – I bought same – boots too..!
Jimi was discovered by us Brits – British musician Chas Chandler - and how we loved Jimi whilst he was ignored and even vilified in the US. We placed a memorial plaque where he lived in London alongside another plaque to HANDEL, George Frideric (1685-1759) can you Adam & Eve it..! Cockney rhyming slang for: can you believe it..
https://www.english-heritage.org.uk/visit/blue-plaques/jimi-hendrix/
Whereas in the US - Jimi was viewed with utter contempt even in his home Seattle regarded as a ‘walking, breathing manifestation of evil’. So as the final degrading insult they put a plaque in the local ZOO - can you Adam & Eve it..!

Ah 1969 to 1975 – thanks loldier – now where is that vinyl..?

>"Have you tried htop command"

Just a note - htop uses at least double the ram that top uses. htop has nice colors, but otherwise is fairly bloated for a cli process manager.

Oh! thanks - I wasn't aware - drat - the very first time I do an app install from a terminal command and I mess up - Oh Dear.
Did not manage to get any colours or dark background yet - must try harder
Cheers
ps wish I get that app that displays what video graphics card RAM is up to live as I think it is controlled from bios via chip.

Edit: Got a grip on it now – see screenshots HP=Trisquel <----> Dell=Trisquel-mini

Oh Wow AndyPrough....!
Is it from safe source - seems to be any one of three installations?
Never heard of PyPI: The simple way - but definitely simple suits me..!
Do I need to install something safe first?
Still not showing AFAIK the graphics activity?
Is it still supported copyright 2016?
I'm sure I have seen a screenshot very similar to yours showing graphics frequency and or activity?
Thank you so much

The website was copyrighted in 2016, but the code for glances itself is continuously updated. Github shows several code updates in the past month: https://github.com/nicolargo/glances

As far as installing, here on the Trisquel forum we don't recommend PyPi, since it also pushes non-free software. Instead, I would try the install script that is on their Get Started page:
$ wget -O- https://bit.ly/glances | /bin/bash

They might have a module that monitors your graphics card. Glances has a ton of features you can enable or disable, if I recall correctly.

I stopped using it myself because it is kind of a resource hog. But for anyone interested in serious system monitoring, glances is well worth trying out.

I'm on a 12,5" laptop and it depend really on the screen size. I see the whole tty.
It's not the same feeling on a 32" display.

And I think that in tty the distribution doesn't matter anymore. bash is bash, coreutils is coreutils.... I don't use the packages manager a lot. etc.
