This is a libdvdread assert, it's should already be fixed in the latest (0.9.4) version. Please upgrade, libdvdread and Ogle.

Assertion 'dsi->dsi_gi.zero1 == 0' failed at nav_read.c:205
After libdvdread has got keys from *.VOB and found 1 VTS, the error happened with the display:

ogle_nav: nav_read.c:205: navRead_DSI: Assertion 'dsi->dsi_gi.zero1 == 0' failed.

Then it displayed four unknown sigchld messages and terminated four pid's. The last display was 3 statements of removing shmid's and exited.

Greatest DVD Player for Linux ever, but....
I do not use any fancy Window Managers on my system (GNOME or KDE) and I am very happy with WindowMaker which only requires GTK+

I use MPlayer for playing videos, but not DVDs.

Ogle is excellent, but I can't get the GUI component to work without GTK+ Would it be difficult to modify the Ogle-gui component to work on computers that have GTK but not GNOME or Glade libraries?

Thanks,

Ogle DVD player- Getting there...
The Ogle DVD player does play DVD's which is more than I can say for any of the other players out there. The packages installed without incident and the player actually played most, if not all, of my DVDs. It has a ways to go before it's a viable alternative to Windows-based DVD software, but it's far closer than anything else I've seen. If your box has a DVD drive it's worth having around.

Decent DVD for linux at last ;-)
Until now I had to keep a copy of windows on my PC for watching DVD's, but hopefully it looks like my pc can finally be cleansed of Microsoft!

All I have to figure now is a reliable way to stop my screen blanking every 10 minutes or so (power saving features) till I jog my mouse.

If I select "play movie" the sound seems to dissapear till I hit the "c" key for "continue", but this is a very minor gripe.

Wow!
I never expected watching DVD's would be easier with Linux than with Windows! This is certainly the way to go!

Just that the sound disappears sometimes after a seek. :-(

Easily the best

This is easily the best DVD player software I've used (it works for a start, something xine never seems to do). I especialy like the snapshot function, I've been merrily sitting here taking screen shots from H2G2 all day. It can only get better when it's fully functional.

really super
installed DVD drive into debian woody, added the packages
from sid as required by apt and away I went no wories
total time including download on 56k modem less than one
hour. Only thing I noticed was that the curent version of
the source package in sid did not build properly faling to make
the dvdcontrol bit. Hence why I tried the binarys (Which work)

Yes, that's stupid, since that version of libxml2 is not required at all. In fact, it will probably work with later versions of libxml1. So, in the next version, the dependencies will be a bit relaxed. You can just install with --nodeps for now.
