I've installed xine and the libdvdcss to allow playback of DVDs. I've
done this a few times in the past with different distros, including FC1
and had no problems. I've now installed on FC2 but when playing a DVD, I
get a series of different pages coming up relating to copywrites for
different countries. Then the screen blanks and I get a message on the
lines of you perhaps don't have permission to view this video, or
something like that. Anyone got any clues as to what is wrong, or to
alter?

Peter.
