i guess so. need a usb dvd player to try it - it seemed to complete finally and also updated and upgraded too. so i did get out of the loop. there was a glitch when i did the wife's dell but that got worked out last week - but on the thinkpad it got hung and found the tab accidentally. second daily us thinkpad went perfect once i hit the tabs as needed. weird. thanks cordx.

i recall the reconfiguring of libdvd-pkg being different than most installs i have gone through as well. i am glad your machines are back in working order. i use vlc to play dvd's from the library all the time and think it is a good program once you get over this initial bump in the road
