playing dvd's


New to linux. Installed Mandriva Limited Edition. Everything fine except DVD disks won't play. Kaffeine comes up but says it does not recognize disk. Disk plays ok with Windows and in home system.

Install libdvdcs using urpmi e.g. as root do
Code:
#urpmi libdvdcss
Make sure you have configured the PLF urpmi (mandrake package manager) sources before running the command above. You can go to easyurpmi for instructions on how to setup extra urpmi repositories. If you need more info regarding urpmi go to zebulon.org.uk.
