Unhappy getting kmplayer to play dvds


I am new to linux first off. I keep trying to play dvds on 
SuSE linux 8.2 with kmplayer and keep getting this message:
MPlayer interrupted by signal 6 in module: open_stream
- MPlayer crashed. This shouldn't happen.
It can be a bug in the MPlayer code _or_ in your drivers _or_ in your gcc
version. If you think it's MPlayer's fault, please read DOCS/bugreports.html
and follow the instructions there. We can't and won't help unless you provide
this information when reporting a possible bug.

What can i do to get it to play dvds?

Welcome to LQ

Does it happen on ALL DVD's? Did you compile mplayer from source? If not, check out some threads around the board, and do so. Most distros package a crippled version, which is looks like is your case.

Also, have you tried running it from the command line to see if it's actually a problem in the calls kmplayer is making?
mplayer -vo xv -dvd 1

HTH

Cool

and when i look at the terminal i get this message:
MPlayer interrupted by signal 11 in module: av_sync
- MPlayer crashed by bad usage of CPU/FPU/RAM.
Recompile MPlayer with --enable-debug and make a 'gdb' backtrace and
disassembly. For details, see DOCS/bugreports.html#crash.b.
- MPlayer crashed. This shouldn't happen.

I' ve seen this before, what was your install method?
Maybe try YaST or Apt for suse instead if you compiled.

ln -sf /dev/sr0 /dev/dvd

That will create the /dev/dvd symlink that will point to /dev/sr0



Alternative:
mplayer -dvd-device /dev/sr0 -dvd 1
Might work.

Cool

Yeah, I'm gonna have to go with a recompile here. Build your own from source, remove the old, install the new, live happily ever after with a working copy of mplayer.

I really think it's the crippled version that ships with distros. Build it yourself, include things you want, and go with it. I don't use any 'libdvdread' 'dvdcss' crap, it's all included in the source version of Mplayer...

Cool
