Ogle DVD problems


I was wondering if anyone could help me with a problem I am having with Ogle. I load it up and use the Open Disc command, it loads the introduction screen up and then closes down, without going onto the DVD menu, closing the Ogle GUI with it. I have installed both DVDread and CSS but cannot figure out how to solve this problem.

Thanks in advance.

Run it from a console (e.g. an xterm) and take a look at the programs output. Paste it here if you can't see the problem.

Thanks, but I worked out what the problem was. I was using the wrong version of dvdcss. The newer version does not work with Ogle.

Thanks for the help, anyway.

I hate to drag up an old thread, but I have the same exact problem as this person did. Unfortunally, he figured out his problem, but the solution was shown

So here it is: I installed all of the Ogle RPM packages without a hitch. Everything went fine. I popped a DVD in my drive, started Ogle, told it to load disc, and nothing happened. Ogle shut down and gave me this:

Debug[ogle_ctrl]: Started /usr/lib/ogle/ogle_gui with pid 15814
Debug[ogle_ctrl]: Started /usr/lib/ogle/ogle_nav with pid 15815
Debug[ogle_ctrl]: Started /usr/lib/ogle/ogle_mpeg_ps with pid 15816
Debug[ogle_ctrl]: Started /usr/lib/ogle/ogle_vout with pid 15817
Debug[ogle_nav]: Opening DVD at "/dev/dvd"
libdvdread: Can't stat /dev/dvd
No such file or directory
vm: faild to open/read the DVD
Debug[ogle_ctrl]: child: 15815 exited with 1
Debug[ogle_ctrl]: pid: 15815 exited with status: 1
Debug[ogle_ctrl]: child: 15814 killed
Debug[ogle_ctrl]: pid: 15814 terminated on signal: 2
Debug[ogle_ctrl]: slaying child: 15816
Debug[ogle_ctrl]: slaying child: 15817
Debug[ogle_ctrl]: removing shmid: 20119566
Note[ogle_ctrl]: exiting

Any suggestions?

I think it is because Linux keeps seeing my DVD drive as just a CDROM drive How do I tell Linux that it is a dvd drive?

does /dev/dvd exist? if not create it with ln -s /dev/hdX /dev/dvd.
