Went to play my Pink Floyd "Live at Pompei" DVD and was told that it was

install, but is referenced by other apps, such as gxine (already 
installed) and ogle (which was installed, but I uninstalled it), and 
libdvdread3 (which I already have installed).

What do I do now?
There are distribution issues with the DeCSS code. 

All Debian packages install documentation to /usr/share/doc/packagename
so you need to navigate to /usr/share/doc/libdvdread3/ and read

Basically, you need to install libdvdcss2 from an unofficial Debian

Hope this helps, 

Hello Sven

Cheers for the response.

Well, I'll be a primate's mother's brother: all the warning seemed to do was just to give a warning re: verification. I changed my sources list as noted previously and apt-get install libdvdcss2 and it worked like a charm. Now that is *very* cool!!

Thanks Christian for the package and others here for the help.

Off to watch "Saucerful of Secrets" now ... he he he
