    Looking for libdvdcss


    Hi, can someone give me a link to the RPM package for libdvdcss? I've had to re-install Mandriva 2006 and Kaffeine is looking for libdvdcss to play my movies,I've forgotten where I downloaded it last time (although I thought it was uprmi )

    Thanks,

    Martin

    Assuming you are using x86: ftp://mirror.cricyt.edu.ar/plf/mandr...-2plf.i586.rpm

    You should use easy urpmi to add the plf as urpmi sources: http://easyurpmi.zarb.org/

    As always, the disclaimer: make sure you can use libdvdcss legally.

    Don't worry Bryan, reverse engineering in clean room environments is AOK in Europe. Interoperability is protected as it should be.

    Hi - If for some reason you end up wanting to compile the library from source and sym-linking it somewhere to another directory, the Ogle website is quite a good source.

    Just a case of unzipping the files, cd'ing to the directory and:

    ./configure

    Then as root:

    make && make install && make clean

    That's only if you get desperate and find you can't get along with the rpm.

    That's good to hear. I always like to give that disclaimer just in case (I don't know anything about law outside of Canada).
