I reinstalled suse 9.1 pro on my laptop and then I installed the packages to enable dvd support for xine.
I downloaded them from http://cambuca.ldhs.cetuc.puc-rio.br/xine/
now all I get is audio when I play a dvd in xine. I didn't originally install kaffeine, so I installed that to see if it was some sort of weird dependency. xine still doesn't work but kaffeine works like a charm. I prefer xine, and I had it working before I reinstalled suse.
before when I got it working xine worked but kaffeine didn't; that would fine but I really want xine to work. let me know if you need anymore info.
