mandriva2008/2009 asus p5q pro dvd play problem
Hi Linuxers!! Building a new computer and the only problem I am having, is that I cannot make any music or video player work on it correctly. I have scoured the internet, and could not find same problem anywhere else. (similar, but not same)...
I have tried mandriva 2008.1 32 and 64 bit OS, and mandriva 2009 64 bit OS, all with same results. I tried kaffeine, xine,totem,kscd cd player, mplayer, etc. non of them will play a commercial dvd, or even an a audio cd. However, both dvd r/w drives are recognized and can transfer data from dvd to hdd. K3b recognizes both drives, and can successfuly burn media. I changed bios to every conceivable setup. I tried 3 different dvd drives (one ide) same problem..
I have made sure latest kernel 2.6.27, libdvdnav4, libdvdread4, win32 codecs, etc...
The setup is mobo= asus p5q pro, core two duo, 2gig ram, two 250g sata hdds, one samsung sata dvd r/w, one Lg sata dvd r/w.
I am trying to to stay with mandriva 2008.1 kde3x, as I dont like all the wiz bang stupid features on mandriva 2009/kde4....
any thoughts would be appreciated Tnx Steve!
