    Hi all
    I need help please.

    I've installed Fedora Core 5 in my PlayStation 3.
    its my first time using Linux OS, so far so good, the PS3 is working fine with fedora, i'm learnig by my own a few things, but today i've tried to play a DVd movie and i get this message.
    you dont Have enought privileges to play this DVd or something like that.
    1 - Where and how i can give the privileges?
    2 - Do i have to do that everytime i want to play something?

    Thanks for you support.

    Hi hamster,

    Can you connect to the web with linux on your ps3? I'm not too sure how that works, but i know that in order to play dvds you have to first install something called libdvdcss2. If your on-line, open a konsole ("alt + F2" --> type "gnome-terminal" .. i hope you have a keyboard too)

    wget -c http://download.videolan.org/pub/lib...2.9-1.i386.rpm
    sudo rpm -i libdvdcss2-1.2.9-1.i386.rpm
    The first line downloads a .rpm file from videolan.org (.rpm files are packages and are basically your setup.exe's for redhat). The second like tells fedora to install the package. "sudo" just says to execute the command w/ admin privilages (will require you to type in password).

    (commands are from fedora guide at http://ubuntuguide.org/wiki/Fedora_f...ack_capability)

    hope this helps!
    Keith
