Error cracking CSS key on current, libdvdcss-1.2.10 not working properly


I am having problems with vlc cracking css.

What could be wrong?

Did you install libdvdcss? That is the package which does the actual CSS decryption, not VLC.
VLC (or to be precise, the libdvdread library inside VLC) just calls on libdvdcss to do the work.

Yeah.

Have you tested it with other dvds? Is it just this one that can't be read or is it all of them?

Yeah, and that dvd works on other installs.

I just installed a new partition of -current with alien's kde-4.7.1. All my other Slackware installs work as they should.

I have the same problem with any encrypted dvd with all media players that I have installed on this partition.

I have built the libdvdcss package with sbopkg in my k9copy queue, and then tried using the alien restricted_slackbuilds package with no success.

Yes, I agree that vlcgit is not, in any way, part of the problem, just libdvdcss on this particular partition.

I just don't see what the problem could be with such a simple program.

Eric, I have edited the thread title.

I didn't mean to imply that your vlcgit.Slackbuild was, in any way, responsible for the problem.

Keep up the good work.

Remove ~/.dvdnav and/or ~/.dvdcss if they exist.

Are you sharing home directories by any chance?

You used sbopkg to compile libdvdcss, or you installed a precompiled package frome Eric? or something else? As it shows you're using Ponce's package.
I doubt Ponce would knowingly put out a faulty package, but it doesn't hurt to double check and IF there's an error let Ponce fix it

No ~/.dvdnav.
Deleted ~/.dvdcss, no change.

First, I just built libdvdcss as part of my sbopkg queue.

After I discovered that it was not working, I then did an upgradepkg to eric's binary package. Neither work on this particular install.

I seriously doubt there is anything wrong with either ponce or eric's packages. They work just fine on my other Slackware installs.

I kind of would like to know what I could have possibly done wrong, but since I just installed on this new partition last week I guess that I'll just do it over.

How new is the DVD you are trying to play?

I have tried a bunch of them.

Every single one of them works just fine on a different Slackware install on another machine.

Every single one of them works just fine on a Gentoo partition on the same machine.

Try removing the package for "libdvdcss-1.2.10-x86_64-1_SBo" using removepkg and reinstall it using either the SlackBuild.org script directly and passing ARCH=x86_64 to the libdvdcss.SlackBuild script when running it, or doing a direct from source compile with Make or src2pkg.

The iso that I did the install from was not right.

I burnt another one, re-installed and now libdvdcss works just fine.
