Re: [suse-multimedia-e] xine/ogle/mplayer slow dvd video output

I just looked at my lilo.conf and there is no mention of either my dvd
or my cdwriter.
I have no "append=" lines currently so I guess I'll look into the
available options I'll let you know how it turns out.



hda is 80gb hard drive
hdb should be dvd
hdc is second 80gb hard drive
hdd should be cdrewriter.

I can mount and use all of my devices but can't turn dma on for any of
