I also have brw against /dev/hdc with a symbolic

link from /dev/dvd. My problem was that I didn't remove the ide=scsi option
from grub.conf when I upgraded from FC1. Once I removed that everything
was fine (almost) - though I don't use kaffeine.

Has anyone been able to get xine / kaffeine

2. I have been looking at the problem for a couple

of days now. The

problem appears to be with accessing the DVD

drive. Mplayer on the

other hand has no problems.

I'm sure that I am just missing something. I first

installed fedora

over my RH9 installation and xine worked very

well. Unfortunately the

installation was such a train wreck in so many

other areas. Now

kaffeine believes that it has insufficient rights

to access the drive

although ls -l indicates that /dev/hdc is

brw------- . I figure that

should be sufficient.

Does anyone have an idea where else to look for

the problem?

You need to know what is the correct device name of your dvd drive and then make a link to it, check it out by using the Main menu->System Tools->Hardware Browser->CD rom drives, highlite the dvd drive, and look at below- Device information, you will see the device name of the dvd drive (Example /dev/scd0, be aware of this because different machine can probe your physical dvd drive as different device and yours may be detected such as /dev/hdc, so you must know what exactly you physical dvd drive is detected as). Now go to command line (Main menu->System tools->Terminal), and use the command " ln -s /dev/scd0 /dev/dvd", this will make a link to dvd device which was not there by default.By now, if you have installed the MPlayer (correctly), then you can fire it up to play dvd. I belive same will work for xine.
