- 04-04-2005 #2The best site for Slackware add-on packages is [http://www.linuxpackages.net
/] http://www.linuxpackages.net/. You can use their search engine to find and
download the Ogle, Xine, MPlayer, libdvdcss, libdvdnav, libdvdread, lame, and
a52dec packages from the web site. Put the packages into a single directory
and run pkgtool to install the packages onto your system.
For VideoLAN, you will have to build it from source since there is no
precompiled package on the LinuxPackages web site yet. To make matters worse,
the version of mpeg2dec included with Slackware 9.1 is too old to be used
with VideoLAN, so you have to compile a newer version of mpeg2dec as well.
That said, if you still want to install VideoLAN, then download the latest
source packages for [http://libmpeg2.sourceforge.net/] mpeg2dec and [http://
www.videolan.org/] VideoLAN and run the following commands. Note that you
have to disable ffmpeg support for the VideoLAN build because the Slackware
MPlayer packages omit some of the header files needed by ffmpeg.
# tar xzvf mpeg2dec-0.4.0.tar.gz
# cd mpeg2dec-0.4.0
# make install
# cd ..
# tar xzvf vlc-0.7.0.tar.gz
# cd vlc-0.7.0
# ./configure --disable-ffmpeg
# make installThere are two major products that come out of Berkeley: LSD and UNIX. We don't believe this to be a coincidence.

all you need is a package called dvdcss.tgz
then as root in a term type
should be good to go
MikeSome people have told me they don't think a fat penguin really embodies the grace of Linux, which just tells me they have never seen a angry penguin charging at them in excess of 100mph. They'd be a lot more careful about what they say if they had.
