Question how to install DVD Source plugin?


I have RHEL6 and popped in a DVD to watch, but found that I needed to install the DVD Source plugin.
Q. How do I do this? What are the commands to be used?

well rhel 6 is NOT known for being good as a general purpose HOME pc
great for the business office

but home use ???????

step 1

this IS a registered install ?
and you are paying the $49 to $299/year REQUIRED support contract
( if not i DO recommend the stranded 1 year at $299 USD per year )

now there are a few ways for store bought dvd's
the first and LEGAL way in the US of A is install VLC

http://www.videolan.org/vlc/download-redhat.html
now these instructions ARE FOR THE OLD RHEL5
but install the "RPMforge " repo for RHEL6 -- ask your paid for tech support for those instructions

some repos ARE INCOMPATIBLE with RHEL base install so it is VERY VERY IMPORTANT to install and set up "yum-Priorities " ( 100% a MUST DO is configure it !!!!!)
heed the warnings from your tech support person

you might also want to read the CentOS wiki ( cent is the FREE version of RHEL )
http://wiki.centos.org/
http://wiki.centos.org/AdditionalResources/Repositories
http://wiki.centos.org/PackageManagement/Yum/Priorities
the link for installin rpmforge repo ( FOR CENTOS 6 )
http://wiki.centos.org/AdditionalRes...c0ae92d1398e01

then when the repo is installed and priaorites is configured
Code:
su -
yum install vlc

John VV,

I am using this PC for home use for research purposes and I do have the RHEL6 registered.
I just wanted to play a DVD to get all the capabilities up and running.

If I have paid support, are you saying that I can just go to the RHEL website and get the VLC repos for RHEL6? is there a particular repo I am looking to install?

Install VLC from the VLC web site, get the latest version for your linux distro
http://www.videolan.org/vlc/download-redhat.html
also make sure that libdvdcss and libdvdcss2 are installed
I dont know if this will work in RedHat it might not
Quote:
1. download livna-release-9-2.noarch.rpm
yes! you will need to downgrade your livna to bring your DVD back alive.

2. if installed, erase libdvdcss.x86_64 0:1.2.9-2.fc10
# yum erase libdvdcss

3. erased libdvdcss2.i386 0:1.2.10-5.fc10
# yum erase libdvdcss2

4. installed livna-release-9-2.noarch.rpm
# rpm -ivh livna-release-9-2.noarch.rpm

5. install
# rpm -ivh libdvdcss-1.2.9-2.fc10.x86_64.rpm

6. install
# rpm -ivh libdvdcss-devel-1.2.9-2.fc10.x86_64.rpm
here is the link to the post from where I found that http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...nstall-720142/

Good luck to you!

seeing as livna is DEAD
that repo no longer exists
that info from 2009 is out dated and of on use any more

also DO NOT DO NOT install the old and very DEAD fedora 10 rpms on the current RHEL6

they are TWO VERY VERY VERY different operating systems and you WILL KILL RHEL6 install


1)
install the rpmforeg repo
2)
install the "yum-Priorities" plugin

3)
configure the installed "yum-Priorities" plugin
4)
DO NOT SKIP STEP 2 AND 3 !!!

5)
install vlc from yum

Question DVD Problem

I have done nothing regarding the DVD Source install or with any of the previous advice because after I created a VM for Windows 7, my DVD player will not eject the CD for some reason.
I am boggled and wonder if I caused this. I cannot think of anything that I may have done to disable the DVD player.

Q. How can I check the operation of the DVD player? It obviously was working before when I put the CD in.

then it is a vm issue
what is it ?
vmware or something else ( like KVM )?

you need to configure that

Also RHEL6 has a already installed and BUILT IN vm software - there is no need to buy anything else
KVM is part of RHEL6
