FC9 livna RPMFusion cannot play DVD


I tried to play Holywood DVDs on my FC9 on a Fujitsu A6030 Lifebook.

I did
rpm -ihv http://rpm.livna.org/livna-release-7.rpm ( I must have tried
this when I read the personal fedora installation FC 7 or 6?)

rpm -ihv http://rpm.livna.org/livna-release-8.rpm

and

rpm -ivh http://download1.rpmfusion.org/free/...ble.noarch.rpm http://download1.rpmfusion.org/nonfr...ble.noarch.rpm
rpm --import /etc/pki/rpm-gpg/RPM-GPG-KEY-rpmfusion-*

on three occasions, and try to play "kaffeine DVD://1"

and kaffeine keeps giving me this :

xine Error - Kaffeine Player
No plugin found to handle this resource (dvd://1)
Details:
xine: cannot find input plugin for MRL [dvd://1]


mplayer gives other set of problems that I don't even
bother to copy the error messages in my log book (something about cannot decode or something).


Strange thing is that kaffeine plays okay on my CentOS 5.2
that should really sound strange to many people.
The only thing I don't like about that is that the GM965 Intel Graphic Controller is making the movie
jerky at some point (i mean there is a consistent minor lag). I believe
CentOS5.2 still can't handle the latest Intel graphic chipsets such
as GM965 well (glxgears crashes the Xorg, hopefully they will fix in CentOS 5.3 ??). On another machine (a Dell Inspiron 530s) CentOS 5.2 with
a slightly older Intel Graphic Controller, kaffeine plays perfectly fine.

My personal problem is to figure out the source of the problem before declaring that FC9 is crappy. (Or yeah, did I tell you that FC 8 on exactly the
same hardware Fujitsu A6030 didn't get pass the installer, so I had to get serious with CentOS5.1 and CentOS5.2 on this machine since Jan 2008?)

I don't do DVDs much, but I just installed the latest DVD libraries from the mplayer site and the smplayer on my Fedora 10 laptop. When I put an old DVD ("Battlefield Earth") that I'd got for a couple dollars at a garage sale, it played with no problem. (Other than my grandson wanting to watch the whole thing. ) I suspect your mplayer problem is just that you didn't install all the needed libraries.

As the the kaffeine problem, I get the same error message. I did check, and (on my system at least) /dev/dvd is just a symlink to dev/sr0, and the permissions on /dev/sr0 are "rw" for "root:disk" Since I'm a member of the "disk" group, I don't understand why kaffeine in unable to read it.

You shouldn't have installed the livna packages. Apart from being different versions, from now on rpmfusion is only needed. So remove them.

Now check Fedora DVD codecs Although it refers to Fedora 10 the packages are the same for Fedora 9.

Remove them as in

rpm -e livna-release-7-2.noarch

rpm -e livna-release-8-1.noarch

??

I did that before I did

rpm -ivh http://download1.rpmfusion.org/free/...ble.noarch.rpm http://download1.rpmfusion.org/nonfr...ble.noarch.rpm
rpm --import /etc/pki/rpm-gpg/RPM-GPG-KEY-rpmfusion-*


Do I need to reinstall kaffeine or mplayer ?
Is livna repo not working since I have not done a step similar to
rpm --import (for RPMFusion ?)
Since I can rpm --import, can I rpm --export or rpm --remove-what-ever-that-has-been-imported-to-avoid-version-clashes ??

Can someone post something on either FC9 or FC10 that shows the version
of the working DVD stuff. Such as rpm -qis or the mplayer/kaffeine version ? yum install seems to be in a mess these days.

For CentOS5.2, my mplayer and kaffeine are working due to the rpmforge repos ( a very good job done since I don't have to scratch my head)

[root@centos52-64-fuj ~]# rpm -ivh rpmforge-release-0.3.6-1.el5.rf.x86_64.rpm

Could i use rpmforge repo for FC9 ?

since you installed the fedora 7 then the fedora 8 repo on your system and from your posts YOU INSTALLED files from the old repos you need/.MUST remove the old programs first .
to see what old software you have on the computer .first check ad see what repos are now in use
Code:
yum repolist
your list should look like this
Quote:
adobe-linux-i386 Adobe Systems Incorporated enabled : 17
fedora Fedora 9 - i386 enabled : 9,897
livna Livna for Fedora Core 9 - i386 - Base enabled : 6
rpmfusion-free RPM Fusion for Fedora 9 - Free enabled : 0
rpmfusion-free-updat RPM Fusion for Fedora 9 - Free - Updates enabled : 697
rpmfusion-nonfree RPM Fusion for Fedora 9 - Nonfree enabled : 0
rpmfusion-nonfree-up RPM Fusion for Fedora 9 - Nonfree - Upda enabled : 380
updates-newkey Fedora 9 - i386 - Updates Newkey enabled : 5,027
now running
Code:
yum update
should replace any fc7,fc8 packages you installed
-------
then have a look at DangerMouse's how too
http://www.dnmouse.org/codecs.html
or
http://www.mjmwired.net/resources/mj...l#mediaplayers

Thanks for the most informative post I have received so far John VV!

looks healthy, I am doing a "yum update" now.
It is going to take a while so I shall wait. There are 587 packages that
need to be downloaded.

Will let you know if mplayer and kaffeine work.

Just to be sure, the right way of running a DVD from a command line
is "kaffeine DVD://1" ?

Did you install the video codecs as mentioned in the link above?

huh? I thought that codec is automatically included when I included the RPMFusion repo ?

I was following the instructions at
http://reddevil62-techhead.blogspot....fedora-10.html

(but i guess it is just for F10)..


I think i have referred the page, but don't know exactly what to do.
Can you be kind enough to explicitly type the commands so that I can follow ? If not, I will search to how to incude the CODEC.
I think my problem at this stage I am confusing RPMFusion and codec.
They are different I believe..



It is getting late, i have to abort my "yum update"
The last few entries are :
(222/587): tomcat5-5.5.27-0jpp.2.fc9.x86_64.rpm | 487 kB 00:01
(223/587): perl-IO-Compress-Zlib-2.008-38.fc9.x86_64.rpm | 137 kB 00:00
(224/587): control-center-2.22.2.1-1.fc9.x86_64.rpm | 2.7 MB 00:08
(225/587): gail-1.22.3-1.fc9.x86_64.rpm | 296 kB 00:00

but I have to leave office now. I think it should be okay to do that
since my computer is downloading the RPM files.

First complete the update.

RPMFusion is a repository where various packages are kept. video codecs are some of them.

Fedora 10 has a new feature. If you install rpmfusion repository and you try to play a video/audio with Totem it will automatically download and install codecs. I don't think they have ported this to Fedora 9 as well.

The commands you need are in the link I gave you before.

No it won't. Upgrade Fedora is the correct procedure. But take a backup of your files to be sure. :P

You should also take a look here before the upgrade. https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/YumUp...-.3E_Fedora_10

Okay, now I know the difference between "yum update" and "upgrade". However, the update process is very slow.

I guess I don't have to do the upgrade process if I had not use the wrong repo (i.e., the livna repos for FC7 and FC8) and download the "wrong" mplayer and kaffeine and related libs..

Keep hitting the problematic mirror that is causing my "baby-sitting" job
so painful..


http://mirror.nus.edu.sg/fedora/rele...c9.x86_64.rpm: [Errno 4] Socket Error: timed out
http://mirror.nus.edu.sg/fedora/upda...c9.x86_64.rpm: [Errno 4] Socket Error: timed out

Can I shut that stupid mirror down explicitly ? It is causing me a lots of pain. It has been more than three hours and I am only half way installing the codec stuff.

I am going to issue
all these commands to install the codecs, but do I have to worry that it might not work for x86_64 ? Anyway, I will keep posting if I hit the problem again.

Okay, the verdict is OUT.

On my update FC9, Kaffeine and mplayer cannot play a DVD that can be played on the same machine but with CentOS5.2!!!

I cannot believe all my efforts are wasted!

The random error messages are attached:
