On my PC I'm running openSUSE Tumbleweed and (obiously) I'm also using Packman 
repo (/pub/linux/misc/packman/suse/openSUSE_Tumbleweed/).

By the way IMMO this repo is a -must have- since it contains a lot of useful 

I'm writing in order to report an issue I've been seeing for a while on 
libxine and DVD reading. This clearly affects any reader based on libxine 
including kaffeine.

Mainly the error appear to be related to the usage in libxine of deprecated 
iterfaces provided by the libdvdcss.

The error message from the command line is: 
"libdvdread: Missing symbols in libdvdcss, this shouldn't happen !"

I had alook at the libxine code and I noticed that this appear to be related 
to the symbol "dvdcss_title" which is depecated and removed in latest 

I'm not sure but I think that units dvd_input.c/.h in libxine (src/input/
libdvdnav/) may need to be patched as in the attached file.

Thanks for your attention,


My currently installed packages versions are:

libxine2		1.2.6-102.3	from Packman Tumbleweed
libdvdcss2	1.4.0-1.4		from VideoLan Tumbleweed
libdvdnav4	5.0.3-29.9	from openSUSE Tumbleweed
libdvdread4	5.0.3-35.4	from VideoLan Tumbleweed
