I've a Suse 9.1 system, and I've being trying to unlock Xine to play
dvds - like so many before me. I found a promising posting at :
which at first I found too scary because of all the messages I got from
Yast when I started uninstalling xine-devel -etc. Abandoning that, I
installed Mplayer, which started up, but then stopped with a message
about too many packets in the buffer. Having failed with Mplayer I went
back to unlocking Xine, and eventually, it all started up. I got a
message saying that there were problems and it might not work, but I
What I have now is a Kaffeine installation that works, after a fashion.
If I start up Kaffeine, without a dvd in the drive, I get a message
saying that no plugin has been found to handle this. I had a look at the
Kaffeine website, where a FAQ re-directed me to the Mplayer site, there
I grabbed the essentials file as directed, but KDE refused in unpack
this, telling me that I had all the packages on my system already.
When I put a dvd in the drive and then start Kaffeine, I get a very
brief flash of the no plugin message - think, it's very quick - but then
the dvd, or at least some dvds, plays absolutely fine - nice image,
sound, everything. However, I'm having problems getting the dvd out of
the drive. There doesn't seem to be an eject button on the Kaffeine user
interface, and when I press the button on the drive itself, nothing
happens. My solution is to quit Kaffeine, click on the drive on the
devices page, and then select eject - a bit inelegant, but it works.
However, I can't believe it's meant to work this way.
Anybody any ideas?
