DVD Movies
 
The computer I put together for SuSe 9 has a DVD Drive, I put a movie in and was wondering if Linux can play back DVD movies yet.

Nope, we're still waiting.

Oh wait, it's not 1997.... it's 2003, I've been watching DVD's on Linux for atleast 3 years now... try mplayer. http://www.mplayerhq.hu/homepage/design6/news.html

Try this: XINE
Easy to install, setup and use

Here are RPMS....
http://cambuca.ldhs.cetuc.puc-rio.br/xine/
If you installed the version of xine that came with SuSe remove it.
You may need to install xine-libs twice, once before xine-gui, and once after: don't ask me why
Make sure you install the dvd-network package also
type "xine" in a console to run it.
from the Xine menu click dvd: the dvd should play unless you have a funky setup
In that case you have to go the options (which by the way will show up the first time you start), then the input tab, and specify your DVD device.
This would be somthing like /dev/dvd; /dev/cdrom; /dev/sr0 (usally if its a burner too)
After setting up the device exit and rerun Xine and try to play your DVD again.
If you experience a lot of skipping, you must enable DMA mode on your DVD drive.
If you need to know how to do this, then post a reply to this saying so.
If not, happy watching

Let me know if this helped you at all, If not, I will try again.
P.S. Push ctrl-d to download new skins, the default is rather ugly

This ones easy

First go to YAST in your menu
Click the add or remove software button
Search "xine"
If any xine packages show up, right click on them and select delete
Push "Accept"
Packages will be removed

Hope this helps

Do you mean create a link onto the desktop or just run the nvidia panel?

tsauron2003 12-30-03 12:17 AM

Well,
Assuming you are using the Beta 4620 drivers and not those awful new
ones, here is how you do it

Assuming you are using KDE, follow these steps

Right click on the desktop
Select create new
Select Link to application
Select the name and icon the popup box
http://mclan01247.tripod.com//sitebu...res/nvidia.gif
(this makes for a good icon,at least if you know how to make it into a jpeg)
Click the Execute tab
type in /usr/bin/nvidia-settings or manually browse to it
select OK

There, you have got a link to an application on your desktop

P.S.
Did you get your DVDs to play?

He just needs to put nvidia-settings in the box.

If you want a icon for the nvidia panel you can download this I use.
