RE: [SLE] [OT] MPlayer : Painfull DVD playback.
Went to /etc/sysconfig/hardware and made the dvd (hdc) hdc:udma2
Rebooted (Was there another way?)
Slotted in a dvd
Started up Mplayer and saw Denzel blasting away with Ethan Hawke (sp?)
trying to start the car just after stealing some money from Macy Gray.
Give you 2 guesses ;-)

No skipping, No jumping, 5 speaker sound.
Ode to joy.

Thanks to y'all!!
