    Libdvdcss for mandrake 10.1


    My IBM ThinkPad R30 came with a dvd driver on it. The dvd drive works with data dvd's (i.e. the mandrake 10.1 installer), but when I put a movie dvd in, it says that it is encrypted, and needs libdvdcss (sp, might be libcss or something) installed. What can i do?

    Go to this site and find one that matches your system and dl it and install it.

    Just click on it and it should bring up your installer.

    I didn't even think about the fact that you are using MDK.
    Try

    urpmi libdvdcss

    that should work.

    I have never used urpmi before, so I don't know if the syntax is correct or not.
    But, if it is not, it should give you an error where you can find the correct syntax.
