Xine DVD Playback not Working.


I was wondering if someone can help me get xine to play DVD's in Mandrake? My DVD drive is mounted as hdd (sec-slave) and I can see the vob files, etc. I have syslinks pointing as follows...
Code:
/dev/dvd -> ide/host0/bus1/target1/lun0/cd
/dev/hdd -> ide/host0/bus1/target1/lun0/cd
I can play DivX movies in Xine but When I click on the 'DVD Nav' button I get the following error...
Code:
The source can't be read.
(Error reading NAV packet)
I tried installing the following packages from the CD's... 'libdvdread' and 'libdvdnav' but it didn't help.

Thanks, Olias

first I don't think you have to mount the DVD to watch it (the mount might even be getting in the way, don't know, never tried it).

second have you recompiled xine since installing libdvdread and nav? what about libdvdcss does that need installed too?

It looks like I will need the 'libdvdcss' rpm package. Any ideas where to get it?

Thanks, Olias

you can try this one:

http://www.videolan.org/pub/libdvdcs...2.8-1.i386.rpm

videolan.org also carries the source if the rpm doesn't install well.

What do you mean when you say ¨recompile¨?
and how do you do that of course.

thanks in advance.

first I think its 'winners go _home_ and fsck the prom queen' whereas the other quote would suggest that winners run out onto the football field while their crowning the queen and jumping on top of the ol' girl.

second if one were to install Xine from source code instead of from a precompiled package such as an RPM then one might have to recompile Xine after installing new libraries so that Xine would know that those libraries exist and utilize them.

hope that helps,
jpbarto

gotcha... thanks.... I got it working already though... turns out i needed the nav package, as well as the libdvdcss... heh what's funny is I had installed the libdvdcss previously, using the source... But good ol' Xine wouldn't recognize it until I actually installed the RPM... what matters is that I already got the damn thing to work.

About my sig i just thought it was funny... nothing to be taken seriously..

Thanks jpbarto! googled error and you gave solution. Can only wonder why an antiquated lib was included in the drake 9.2 isos, but either way gj.
