Possibly, but libdvdcss2 is the debian version. An error on my part. Try just 

I've just put vlc on an instance of FC5, and freshrpms is showing libdvdcss , 
which I installed, and I've got vlc playing DVD's ok on that.

Livna probably has it too, but I havn't got anything booted up thats using the 
Livna repo at the moment.

Sorry for the error.
