dvd in slack 9


greetings, all. i am a complete newbie, lacking any and all experience with linux. what i lack in brains though i've been attempting to make up with heart, going cold turkey/microsoft-free in favor of slack 9 on the sink-or-swim philosophy. could someone out there throw me a life-preserver and talk me through the basics of playing a dvd on slack? i've downloaded every tgz of ogle i could find, yet whenever i try to run the thing it complains about not finding some sort of library. some of the other posts on this subject mentioned compiling from source, a subject too scary for me to undertake on my own at this early date--anyone willing to hold my hand through the process?

I watch DVDs on MPlayer and it works very well.

You have to compile it from source though

ahh the "some sort" library i know it... actually it may well be libdvdread, which you will need to install, yes. without some slightly more useful information can't really say that much. compiling from source is a doddle though. You might also prefer http://mplayerhq.hu, more powerful and comes with absolutely everything needed to play dvd's, no other libraries...

the exact error message is:

"error during dlopen: libglade.so.0: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory"

Ogle's page contains the following FAQ:

"Q: It fails at startup with an error about not finding a shared library.

A: You probably have a faulty 'ld'. Make sure that you have version 2.11s or later. Upgrade 'ld' (it comes with binutils) or add the right path (usually /usr/local/lib/ogle) to the environment variable LD_LIBRARY_PATH."

i tried downloading a new copy of binutils, but without success. how do i find the environment variable LD_LIBRARY_PATH to edit it (and once i've found it, can i just open it up in pico to change it, or is some sort of compilation required?)

install glade from your slackware cd. Its probobly in the /slackware/gnome or the /slackware/l directory.

Compiling is easy, its no big deal.

it's not anywhere, you just set it wherever you wish. but you should actually just install the glade library really... no idea why it wants it though.. strange.
