Is there a way to install files besides using the Download PBI page? Does PC-BSD have something like Synaptic package manager?

I have looked through the documentation and it doesn't have the information Im looking for.

Thanks

How do you install the codecs for running DVD's?

I went to that site, but I couldn't find the codecs the playing DVDs. Where would they be?

When you install one of the media players that play DVDs, the needed libraries are installed.

Then you should install the portstree first. After installing it, installing the codecs is really easy ( /usr/ports/multimedia/win32-codecs ).

O.K...
I'm guessing that your coming for Debian GNU/Linux ...
I LOVE Debian ... APT-GET rules ! Along with Synaptic !
The REAL Debian ... Not Ubuntu !
You can use DesktopBSD Tools or BPM ...
It's not Synaptic or APT-GET ...
But they are nice GUI's for ports .
Debian/KFreeBSD uses Synaptic and APT-GET !
It's Debian but without the Linux Kernel ...
It uses the FreeBSD Kernel instead .
As far as playing DVD's along with MANY other formats install VLC !
It works very well ... But if you live in the U.S.A. be careful .
VLC contains libdvdss witch is not legal there .
Take care !

installing libraries:

open konsole session

su
password:
pkg_add -r libdvdread
pkg_add -r libdvdnav
pkg_add -r libdvdplay
cd /usr/ports/multimedia/libdvdcss && make install distclean


pkg_add -r => fetch package from remote server and install it along with any thing it requires.


Gentoo portage / emerge was based on FreeBSD ports system, read the link that was posted to learn more about the 'make install' thing.


Being at work on a GUI front end for ports, I'll refrain from comment on that issue.

Probably the ports tree, it comes on CD#2 as an optional package when you install PC-BSD. You can fetch an _up to date_ copy online:

// fixed type, sorry.

portsnap fetch && portsnap extract


It will take a long time to complete depending on your network connection and computers CPU/Memory. Once it's installed, try the command again:


cd /usr/ports/multimedia/libdvdcss && make install distclean


I'm installing it as I type this.

Thank you. It all installed and I ran the second command.

I tried playing the DVD with kaffeine and I get this error:
No plugin found to handle this resource (dvd://)
05:16:52: xine: cannot find input plugin for MRL [dvd://]
05:16:52: xine: input plugin cannot open MRL [dvd://]
05:16:52: xine: found input plugin : DVD Navigator

What's is it telling me?

But later I tried VLC Media player and it works!

So until I figure Kaffeine's problem I'll use VLC.

Thanks again :)

Havn't watched a DVD on my laptop since before the 1.5 patch (and even then I used MPlayer).


if I have any problems next time I try Kaffeine I'll give a shout.

After a month off I have reinstalled PCBSD with ver. 1.5.1 I'm trying to get the ports to work. I have tried this command:

What does this mean: Requested Range Not Satisfiable ?

My guess is the server can't satisfy the request for that file
