Well, I'm trying to get xine working with my dvd drive (hdb, or primary device on secondary drive). I try to a:

Code:
ln -s /dev/hdb /dev/dvd


But xine cannot read from the dvd drive at all, so I cannot play DVDs.

you have to use 'mount' to mount drives. Do you have an entry in your /etc/fstab file for it?

This is my /etc/fstab:

/dev/hda1 /boot ext2 noauto,noatime 1 1
/dev/hda3 / xfs noatime 0 0
/dev/hda2 none swap sw 0 0
/dev/cdroms/cdrom0 /mnt/cdrom iso9660 noauto,ro 0 0
proc /proc proc defaults 0 0

If that is pointing to your DVD drive, then you should be able to type 'mount /mnt/cdrom' and that will mount any iso9660 formatted CD. To allow users (other than root ) to do this, add 'users'. Example:
Code:
/dev/cdroms/cdrom0   /mnt/cdrom   iso9660      noauto,ro,users      0 0

You need to have UDF file support in your kernel to mount dvds. And you shouldn't have to mount the dvds. Xine should access them directly.

To get your DVD under DevFs you need to uncomment the lines in your devfs config file for dvd support. It will then create the proper /dev/dvd file for your dvd drive that xine needs.

Try this thread.

abombss,

That's the one, I found it and didn't post back here about that. Modified the entry (removing the cdrom support itself and left only entries for dvd), rebooted and that worked out just fine (I know I didn't need the reboot, but I recompiled the kernel).
