Hi all. My question is basically how to get this to work...
I have my DVD player mounted as /dev/cdrom to /mnt/cdrom. Also I have installed libdvdread, libdvdplay, and libdvdcss as complements to Mplayer, which works fine opening everything else (divx, mpeg, xvid, asf, etc., etc.)
I am able to access regular old CD's from the DVD drive so I'm guessing this is something to do with kernel thinking its just a regular drive and ONLY a regular drive... Using the standard Rehat 8 kernel upgrade, no special tweaks or anything from kernel source yet...
Really trying to avoid that honestly. Just wondering if there is anything I can do config-wise to fix this... When I put any DVD in the drive, be it a movie or data disk, it just sits their spinning up and stopping forever until I manually eject it.
I was thinking of un-mounting /dev/cdrom and mounting /dev/dvd when I wanted to watch a movie, but not sure how I would do that right or if that would be right to do.
I would really appreciate any help in this.

OK, I am looking at xconfig for a newer kernel and totally take back what I said about not wanting to get into that! What an incredible interface and technology... Perhaps I'll find a fix for my system looking here first.
