Music and media in Debian: mp3,VOB


Ok, I have worked with Linux for a while but have recently converted to Debian. (Thank God for that net installer) I was scared away multiple times by that cd installer.

1. I've seen it somewhere but what would be the best line of code to go into /etc/fstab to mount a fat32 so that root and all other users can read,write, and execute the files?

2. What program/libraries are needed in Debian to listen to mp3's? (I have gig's of my cd's ripped to my fat32 partition)

3. What program/libraries are needed to watch pure DVD's from the hard drive? I use to use ogle while in RedHat 9. I have the VOB's of DVD's that i have purchased copied to my hard drive.

Thanks for all the help.

(More questions probably soon to come. BTW, this site is awesome. there are some very skilled debian(and other distros too) users here who are very helpful.)

I agree.

It's been awhile but IIRC you need the user,umask=000 in the options part of the line so when it gets mounted by a user he has root user permissions.

Installing xmms and the recommended apps/libs for it should get you everything you need.

This is what I have installed.

Code:
>$ dpkg -l | grep libdvd
ii  libdvdcss2     1.2.8-0.0      Simple foundation for reading DVDs - runtime
ii  libdvdread3    0.9.4-5        Simple foundation for reading DVDs
And to get them you need this line in your /etc/apt/sources.list and while you are at it you may as well install the w32codecs package to get the WIN 32 codecs in case you every install something like mplayer or kaffeine.

Code:
## Various Multimedia Helper Apps Mplayer, Real, etc.. ##
deb ftp://ftp.nerim.net/debian-marillat/ unstable main

Note you may want to change the unstable in the line to either testing or stable if you are using those branches.
