XBMCbuntu 11.10
ATI Radeon HD4200 Integrated Video

I just did a clean install, and tried playing back some of my .mkv video files off of my NAS and the screen is either green during playback or a combination of pink and green vertical lines. The audio seems to work fine. All of my videos played fine before the xbmcbuntu install. I wanted to know if anyone had this experience and where to begin troubleshooting. Thanks for the help,

Here is the portion of the xbmc debug log for the video I just tried from when I press play until the first error in the log...

Alright I solved the problem by disabling VAAPI in the xbmc settings. I do have VDPAU enabled.
