9.3 YOU screws up DVD (XINE)

I did a YOU on some totally unrelated packages

Now I can't play DVD's any more

XINE--CHECK reports

This is xine (X11 gui) - a free video player v0.99.4.
(c) 2000-2004 The xine Team.
libdvdread: Using libdvdcss version 1.2.8 for DVD access

*** libdvdread: CHECK_VALUE failed in ifo_read.c:1729 ***
*** for pgci_ut->nr_of_lus < 100 ***

*** libdvdread: CHECK_VALUE failed in ifo_read.c:1608 ***
*** for pgcit->nr_of_pgci_srp < 10000 ***

*** libdvdread: CHECK_VALUE failed in ifo_read.c:649 ***
*** for pgc->nr_of_programs <= pgc->nr_of_cells ***

*** libdvdread: CHECK_VALUE failed in ifo_read.c:667 ***
*** for pgc->program_map_offset != 0 ***

*** libdvdread: CHECK_VALUE failed in ifo_read.c:668 ***
*** for pgc->cell_playback_offset != 0 ***

*** libdvdread: CHECK_VALUE failed in ifo_read.c:669 ***
*** for pgc->cell_position_offset != 0 ***

*** libdvdread: CHECK_VALUE failed in ifo_read.c:649 ***
*** for pgc->nr_of_programs <= pgc->nr_of_cells ***

I'v even installed the whole (Multi-media) stuff again from both PACMAN and the Brazilian site

Still the same error.

Any ideas --or will it work better if I compile from source.

Grhhhh this WAS WORKING

Why on EARTH should it be so difficult to play DVD's on Linux --DVD's are 100% mainstream on ANY computer now and this definitely needs to be fixed -- especially if you are ever going to wean people off Windows.

As a consumer who buys a DVD movie it is difficult to understand why you can't view it. SuSE isn't the culprit -- its Hollywood at al that makes it illegal to view commercial DVDs on your PC. They will license "their" encryption to DVD player manufacturers but not to PC software companies. This is further aggravated by the GPL licensing requirement. GPL doesn't provide for proprietary software. SuSE, a German company, is additionally constrained by German copyright law. YOU can't provide the DVD decoders for the same reasons. Some countries have less strict laws and the DVD CSS decryption is available for now on the Internet. DVDs play fine on my SuSE 9.3 system by using that software. The trick is not to accept YOU updates for xine from SuSE. Hollywood refuses to adapt their business model to todays technology and the concept of "fair use".
