This is a strange problem that I did not have on Slackware 13.0 with VLC-1.0.2, but has shown up with 13.1 and VLC 1.1.1. (All of the VLC packages
I'm talking about come from Alien BOB!)
First problem, when I try to play a DVD by going to File -> Open Disk -> DVD -> Play, I get this error:
DVDRead could not open the disc "/dev/hda".
Your input can't be opened:
VLC is unable to open the MRL 'dvd:///dev/hda'. Check the log for details.
Which makes sense because of the LibATA switch-over. Right? The DVD shouldn't be /dev/hda anymore.
(There is no log, BTW, I hadn't set one up in the preferences).
I can still choose to open a directory and simply click on the DVD in the open directory dialog box (/media/<DVD name>). Then everything plays without a problem.
Is this an easy fix?
