Ok, I guess I took it for granted that there dvd's would work on slack automatically (like in redhat and mandrake) but I guess that this usually not the case
anyway,ya, i tried searching but they all tell me to change the link that is /dev/dvd and point it to what it is recognized as bootup /dev/hdd
should i do this, because i don't want to screw up the fact that my /dev/hdd can be read just fine (if i mount /dev/hdd, i can manually select the vob files, but menus and chapters don't work, plus only 1/4 of the movie will load at any one time)
i have been using xine and i don't think it is the software that is causing the problem, or is it?
edit: /dev/dvd is currently a symbolic link to /dev/sr0
check out www.freshmeat.net and take a peek around. Im positive they have something in their that will suit your needs perfectly. Thats where i got my vid player. Although it doesnt play dvd's im sure you can find the stuff there.
