DVD Playback Issue In Kaffeine


I'm trying to enable DVD playback in SUSE 10 OSS, so I found a magazine article online covering the topic. Their procedure more-or-less involved removing the crippled multimedia libraries, installing the fully-featured ones, and then installing libdvdcss (I hope nobody minds the legal issues) via an RPM. Everything went as planned until I actually attempted DVD playback via Kaffeine. Just as I place the DVD in the drive and Kaffeine starts, I get the message: "Error reading NAV packet." I've surfed around the web trying to find a solution, but all of the solutions I could locate involved installing libdvdcss, which I have already done. The only idea I have is that perhaps ANY DVD playback is only possible through the pay-version of SUSE, and that answer is kinda desperate. Any ideas?

If you search for "Suse" and "DVD" you will find countless threads on this messageboard with the solution.

It's nice that it works, but with a correct installation, root permissions should not be required to read DVD's. Maybe you have some configuration files of the crippled xine/kaffeine version in your homedirectory. I prefer mplayer anyway.

I have the same problem. I can play dvds fine as root, but not in my norman profile. How do I fix that?

I'm guessing it has something to do with the /fstab file, since it's probably about accessing the DVD drive.
