You just need to install libdvdcss, follow the link from Pacman it's simple to
compile and install even on an Athlon 64.
Then install the latest xinelib rpm from pacman. You don't need to update the
Xine GUI it works just fine when you update xinelib. I've successfully done
this on 4 boxes including an Athlon 64, although at the time pacman didn't
have the 64bit RPMs I think he now has them for download. You may also want
to update the Kaffeine GUI as this will then play DVDs it's also a good idea
to install the win32codecs this will play wmv files up to V8 not 9 and also
Quicktime movies in both Xine and Kaffeine.
