    Mandriva 2006 DVD playback


    Greetings!

    I am having trouble installing mplayer and win32 codecs on Mandriva 2006 (free dvd download).

    Here is what I have done:

    o Logged on as root

    o I set up my sources/repositories to Mandriva/2006/urpmi using the easy urpmi page and followed the 3-step instructions.

    o I set up plf for the contrib media repositories, because I read playback of dvds will not be possible without plf-free and plf-nonfree.

    After all of those were installed (while still at the command line) I typed:

    urpmi mplayer

    But get, "no package name xxxxxxxx."

    Ditto for 'urpmi win32-codecs' and 'urpmi libdvdcss'

    What am I missing?

    Thanks and take care!

    Have you tried to open cc"& try it from there. You will be able to pick mplayer from the list ¨if its there!¨

    Actually everything I did, I did from the command-line....

    Does the silly law prevent repositories from having the packages?

    Or is this operator error (me)?

    Or both? :^)

    Thanks.
