Under FC1 I was able to access the CDROM in my HP Pavilion N5450 PIII laptop. I have a boot partitiion into WinXP and WinXP can successfully read data either as a CD or DVD. With FC2, kernel 2.6.6, I can not access this drive, or so says Ogle:
libdvdread: Using libdvdcss version 1.2.8 for DVD access
libdvdread: Could not open /dev/dvd with libdvdcss.
libdvdread: Can't open /dev/dvd for reading
ERROR[ogle_nav]: faild to open/read the DVD
DVDSetDVDRoot:: Root not set
As per the FAQ here, I installed Ogle via Yum with the yum.conf file provided. hwbrowser sees the drive but I'm not clear how to verify that the system has properly configured access to the drives.
