understand. I installed my CD-RW and DVd drives I can mount both of them I can burn cd's with my writer I can view files with both drives BUT I can't figure out how to set up my DVD to play movies with xine. what do I put in my fstab and in my grub - menu.lst? I already have the CD/rw as hdc=scsi in the grub - menu.lst.

thanks

Do you have UDF support compiled into your kernel? There is a thread somewhere that mentions it as being required to play DVDs.

also what does devfsd.conf point to for your dvd....what i did since my dvd is in essence my cdrom0 is to uncomment the dvd section under devfsd.conf and then change it to point to the cdrom0:

Code:
# General note for the following auto creation of symlinks:
#
#    If you change the device that the symlink points to,
#    you should also remove the symlink before restarting
#    devfsd

# Create /dev/cdrom for the first cdrom drive
LOOKUP          ^cdrom$          CFUNCTION GLOBAL mksymlink cdroms/cdrom0 cdrom
REGISTER        ^cdrom/cdrom0$   CFUNCTION GLOBAL mksymlink $devname cdrom
UNREGISTER      ^cdrom/cdrom0$   CFUNCTION GLOBAL unlink cdrom


# Create /dev/dvd for the second cdrom drive
# (change 'cdroms/cdrom1' to suite your setup)
LOOKUP          ^dvd$           CFUNCTION GLOBAL mksymlink cdroms/cdrom0 dvd
REGISTER        ^cdrom/cdrom0$  CFUNCTION GLOBAL mksymlink $devname dvd
UNREGISTER      ^cdrom/cdrom0$  CFUNCTION GLOBAL unlink dvd

# Create /dev/cdrw for the first cdrom on the scsi bus
# (change 'sr0' to suite your setup)
LOOKUP          ^cdrw$          CFUNCTION GLOBAL mksymlink sr0 cdrw
REGISTER        ^sr0$           CFUNCTION GLOBAL mksymlink $devname cdrw
UNREGISTER      ^sr0$           CFUNCTION GLOBAL unlink cdrw


you wont need to make any changes to fstab

You could try using mplayer instead.

-Make sure you've got 'dvd' as one of your USE flags in '/etc/make.conf'
-Emerge mplayer
-Play your DVD with (mplayer -dvd <title no. to play>)

I think that 'should' work, if not I've prabably forgotten something really obvious.

I quite agree. I certainly wasn't suggesting that you give up on Xine. I prefer it to mplayer myself and will probably go back to it once there's a xine-ui ebuild that compiles with gcc 3.1. Just thought I'd suggest a temporary alternative if Xine continues to give you trouble.

Alot of people have had this problem I've noticed looking at different fourms. Here is a copy of a post sent on the alt.os.linux.mandrake newsgroup. Hope this helps some people. I havn't tried this myself.

No, its the other way round. The DVD manucacturers encrypt the DVD so
it will only play back on a DVD player in one particular area of the
world. For instance US DVDs will not play in Europe, so we Brits
cannot buy US DVDs and play them in the UK. WinDVD works the same way.
The encoding is known as CSS. However, there has been an open source
program known as DeCSS which runs on Linux which will enable DVDs from
ALL regions of the world to play on a Linux box, and clearly the DVD
industry doesn't want this.

Recently, there was a successful case against a New York magazine which
was prosecuted for printing the code as it was held to be a tool for
facilitating copying and therefore contravening copyright. Since then,
a number of people in the UK have been threatened with legal action and
at least one has withdrawn the code from his website.

It terms of xine, it is the xlibdvdcss-1.2.1 which facilitates the
playing of encrypted dvds (I understand) but it needs the
xine_d4d_plugin actually to play them.

I did what rommel said after hitting nav wait a few seconds and to get my xine to see my dvd I edited grub menu.lst and added hdd=scsi.

now how do I change the aspect ratio? I notice that a part of the movie is cut off
