If you're happy to run patent encumbered software then you can configure the livna repository by installing the rpm at:

..and then run

yum install totem-xine install a version of totem which can play DVDs.

Well I did all this and had to use "rpm -e --nodeps totem before I could yum totem-xine

That sort of thing is really an option of last resort. RPM/Yum stops you from installing/upgrading pacakges for a reason, not just because it's being awkward. It's much better to figure out what it's complaining about than forcing it. Just post the yum output here and someone will help you figure it out.

which turns out is 6 rpm files with success. But it seemed to work.

But when I put the free DVD I picked up on the counter of a Mc Donalds store it again complains about a lack of drivers and will not show the DVD. Of course the DVD can be shown on FC4 and WindowsXP and on the DVD player hooked to our big computer.

The reason stated for the problem is that all DVD's are having protection from theft. Since the one I am trying was free, what IS going on?

Even free commercial DVDs will still be encypted with CSS. Only home burned DVDs are likely to be unencrypted.

Try the command below which should check that you have all the necessary dvd playing libraries installed:

yum -y install libdvdcss libdvdread libdvdplay libdvdnav lsdvd libdvbpsi

See if that helps


Hi, I found vlc which when yummed has all those files with it and shows movies from DVD right out of the box. I like that.
