Exiting... (End of file)

any help as to what to do next ?

you all rock the house

sure. mplayer has no idea where your dvd player is.. and why should it? it assume it's /dev/dvd unless you specify somewhere else such as "mplayer -dvd-device /dev/hdc -dvd 1" you should creaet a symlink from the actual entry (hda - hdd) to /dev/dvd

ln -s /dev/hdc /dev/dvd

if you don't kbnow where the drive actually is, it's easiest to just try making mplayer play all off them. it'll fail hopelessly if you try to make it play a hard disk etc.... should be pretty obvious

now how should I go about chamging this ? I have no clue where to change the file I did the command as you said but no dice. which file do I edit in mplayer to point it to the right directory

acid_kewpie 02-15-2003 03:27 PM

you don't edit a file, you run the command i just gave you.....

subservant 02-15-2003 03:38 PM

I must have done that command at least a couple of times and I still get nothing.

[root@sausage root]# mplayer - /dev/hdd /dev/dvd

Gotta turn DMA on on your dvd drive. Man hdparam or search the board.

subservant 02-15-2003 05:23 PM

well I brushed up on my termonlogy and I just realized that I had no clue what a symlink was so I read the entire man and I basically did just how you said it.
