Playing DVDs on Xine Edit

Anyway, I installed Xine, put in my LEGAL copy of the DVD into my drive, meaning one from your region and one you rightfully purchased from legal DVD vendor. Notice! You have to have a DVD drive.

Anyway. It wouldn't work. Here's what to do next.

   $ dmesg | grep DVD
   acd0: CDRW <HL-DT-STCD-RW/DVD DRIVE GCC-4240N/0211> at ata1-master UDMA33

"acd0" is the keyword here. I believe I did the following as a regular user. If not try root.

   $ ln -s /dev/acd0 /dev/dvd

Yours may not be acd0. You have to dmesg.

After that, su into root.

   $ su root
   # mount /dev/acd0
   # xine

The DVD should play. If not, repeat.
