You have to install libdvdcss to be able to watch encrypted dvd's and recompile xine.

Worked on my suse 9.2 system....

goto http://packman.links2linux.org/?action=index

Download and install: xine-ui, xine-lib, libdvdcss2
You may have to force the install (rpm -Uvh --force)

You should be able to play dvd's now with xine. you can create a "shortcut" to it or run "xine" from a terminal.

previews aren't normally encrypted.just download the libdvdcss rpm and install it using yast.
the first time a dvd is run it might take a while to start,because it needs to be decoded.playing it after the first run shouldn't be an issue.

I'm having a similar problem. I'm not able to find the RPM so I downloaded, configured, made and installed libdvdcss. What do I need to do now?

Daily xine RPMs
xine might need the path to the decss folder.you can check it under the xine config menu.
