Running Red Hat 8.0 Pro. with a Pioneer DVD/Rw drive. The drive is working fine as a CD device but I downloaded MPLAYER as RPMs and installed it but it will not play with my DVD drive. When I try to play DVD's it pops up with this error:
***Couldnt open DVD device /dev/dvd***
I am using the KDE gui and it shows that it recognizes the cd rom device as a CD/DVD Rom drive, but cant get it to work.
The propertys of this drive are
mount point. /mnt/cdrom
Can anyone help? Maybe I dont have the right driver?
installed those to RPMs and still gives same error
When I downloaded Mplayer they had a RPM package for encoding called "mencoder-0.90pre10-1.i386.rpm", but when I try to install it, it says I am missing this package "libmp3lame.so.0" Could this be it? But that package was not on the download page.
