    Slackware DVD problem


    Hey guys,

    I'm still working on trying to get dvd's to play in slackware, my earlier posts are below, can someone help me. I don't know why but I am being really dense here, nothing seems to work,

    I cannot dl ogle, can't find how to do it, and xine just isn't working properly at all?!?

    Thank you guys for your time,

    Any tutorial or walkthrough would help

    thanks,

    John

    To download and install ogle do the following: go to http://www.dtek.chalmers.se/groups/dvd/downloads.shtml and download the listed source packages and install them in the order they are given, there is no need for ogle_gui, unless you want the gui version.
    If you have and depencacy problems get the files to resolve them, you might have to install the ackages in a different order.

    Once installed, put a dvd in the dvd drive and
    Code:
    ogle
    hope this helps;

    I swear all I had to do is get dvdcss.tgz and
    installpkg dvdcss.tgz as root
    Then open
    xine
    click dvd
    then play
    and that is it
    This works with the 2.6 kernel
    in the 2.4 kernel you have to
    ln -s dvd /dev/cdrom

    did you install dvdcss.tgz?
    This is there to read the encryption.
    it is the only file you need.
    What player are you using? What did you decide?

    wow, adrenaline thank you so much, it worked after the first attempt, I jsust kept trying and got the error because I was playing the movie in a user account and not in root, sorry for the repeated questions, the anser was so easy--freshmeat.net--libdvdcss--installpklg. All I have to do now is learn how to use this in a user account, but for now I'm satisfied, thanks so much again guys I owe you one!!!

    You know what don't feel stupid I didn't get mine from freshmeat I got it from somewhere else so mine is the same as yours it was just called something else.
    I am glad it worked.
    if you are logged into a user go to the run command or term and type
    Code:
    kdesu xine
    you will be prompted for a root password then it will play. this will work untill you figure out your solution.

    You can probably change permissions at /usr/bin/xine also to fix that issue. I am not sure if you changed any configs but I am allowed to watch movies as a user but I can't burn cd's as a user go figure.

    If it really bugs you though we can fix that too.
    Let me know.

    PS You don't owe me anything we are all friends here.

    hello
    if you want to run movie as a normal user, use "kuser" and make the user a member of "Games" group. this should work.

    if you haven't got them yet, immediately get the win32 libs from www.mplayerhq.hu. download all the libs (win32, real player, etc etc) and unzip and copy them into /usr/lib/win32.

    and if you haven't tried mplayer, you should cause its the best so far.
