Un-install


Good day. I have Mandriva Limited Edition 2005 installed. It came with Kaffeine Player 0.6. I want to watch DVD's on my computer, but can't. I've tried to install libdvdcss-1.2.8, but I am still being told that I can not read the DVD because of encryption. A couple of times there was a NAV error. How do I fix this so I can watch DVDs? How do I upgrade to the current version of Kaffeine? Is there a file I can go to & tell Kaffeine where libdvdcss is at? I was able to get this to work fine with Mandrake 10.1. Thank you for any help you can provide.

Blipside,
You are running Mandriva, so you need to know about easy urpmi. Go to this site:

http://www.urpmi-addmedia.org/index2.php

Go through the steps. In step 3 you need to copy and paste the commands it lists in your browser window into a root terminal window (ie a terminal window in which you are logged in as root) and execute them.
Once you have done that, issue this command (again, as root):

urpmi --update --auto-select

That will bring your system up to date with all the latest patches / bugfixes.

Now, to install other things (like libdvdcss) you just do:

urpmi libdvdcss

Easy urpmi is brilliant!

I tried doing urpmi libdvdcss, but it said that "no package named libdvdcss". Does this mean that libdvdcss is not installed?

Kaffeine is a frontend for xine.

The package is actually libdvdcss2 in 2005LE. On my 2005LE machine these are the packages I install to get videos (Divx, Xvid, wmv, asf, mov, etc) and DVDs working:
Code:
urpmi win32-codecs xine-win32 real-codecs video-dvdrip
You will need to have the PLF-free and PLF-nonfree sources from easyurpmi setup for this to work.

As a tip try using the Mandrake Control Centre GUI (http://doc.mandrivalinux.com/Mandriv...anagement.html) to install software in future as it provides close matches if you don't get the name of the package exactly right. The urpmq command does the same from the command line.

Thank you for the help. I added a couple more of the urpmi sites & it found the package that I needed. I have my player up & running. Thank you again.

Next time, just add the PLF repositories to your urpmi sources.
