[solved] libdvdread/libdvdcss error


I have been trying to get dvd playback under Slackware 10.2 (x86). I installed libdvdread, libdvdcss, libdvdnav, and xine-lib from linuxpackages.net; however, when I attempt to play a dvd in Xine, xine craps out (running as root for the moment to ensure proper permissions):
Code:
root@clawhammer:~# xine dvd://
This is xine (X11 gui) - a free video player v0.99.4.
(c) 2000-2004 The xine Team.
libdvdread: Using libdvdcss version 1.2.9 for DVD access
libdvdread: Attempting to use device /dev/sda2 mounted on / for CSS authentication
libdvdnav:DVDOpenFileUDF:UDFFindFile /VIDEO_TS/VIDEO_TS.IFO failed
libdvdnav:DVDOpenFileUDF:UDFFindFile /VIDEO_TS/VIDEO_TS.BUP failed
libdvdread: Can't open file VIDEO_TS.IFO.
libdvdread: Using libdvdcss version 1.2.9 for DVD access
libdvdread: Could not open /dev/dvd with libdvdcss.
libdvdread: Can't open /dev/dvd for reading
After doing some searching on google and various forums, I though that perhaps the /dev/dvd link was bad, but it seems fine:

Code:
root@clawhammer:~# ls -lh /dev/dvd
lrwxrwxrwx  1 root root 8 2006-08-17 11:03 /dev/dvd -> /dev/hdc
root@clawhammer:~# ls -lh /dev/cdrom
lrwxrwxrwx  1 root root 8 2006-08-17 11:03 /dev/cdrom -> /dev/hdc
And I know that /dev/cdrom works (they are the same and only optical drive)

I also read about using Mplayer instead of xine, so I went and downloaded and compiled it with no errors that I could see. But once again it doesn't work:
Code:
root@clawhammer:~# mplayer dvd://
MPlayer 1.0pre8-3.3.6 (C) 2000-2006 MPlayer Team
CPU: AMD Athlon(tm) 64 Processor 3200+ (Family: 15, Model: 4, Stepping: 8)
CPUflags:  MMX: 1 MMX2: 1 3DNow: 1 3DNow2: 1 SSE: 1 SSE2: 1
Compiled for x86 CPU with extensions: MMX MMX2 3DNow 3DNowEx SSE SSE2


Playing dvd://.
libdvdread: Could not open /dev/dvd with libdvdcss.
libdvdread: Can't open /dev/dvd for reading
Couldn't open DVD device: /dev/dvd
[file] No filename
Failed to open dvd://.


Exiting... (End of file)
It seems to me that the problem is with dvdread, but I have not been able to find any solutions.

Thank you in advance for any help.

Why did you install xine-lib? It's already on Slackware. It might be causing problems if you've got 2 versions.

hello :-)
do you have correct permissions for user to read /dev/hdc?

User's who are not members of the cdrom group doesn't have read perm on the device pointed by dvd and cdrom. Check that. Do a xine-check too.

It would seem that libdvdread is not working [duh!], so after the above ideas;

1) Check that the libdvd* packages are correct for your system [ie, if you use slackware-current and have downloaded 10.2 packages]
2) Check the output of dmesg [just in case it is a hardware problem]
3) Download and compile the libdvd* source, it is fairly quick and should remove the problems
4) If xine/mplayer still refuse to work, also try Ogle: http://www.dtek.chalmers.se/groups/dvd/index.shtml
5) If all else fails, threaten it with su -c "rm -rf /"

I know the permissions are correct, I can access the cdrom for other things (k3b,cdparanoia,and data cds)

however dmesg was a little suprising:

end_request: I/O error, dev 16:00 (hdc), sector 2304708
The dvd drive worked under ubuntu just last month, and it works under windows currently so I cleaned off the disk, and it works. Thanks for all the help
