I have an Inspiron 6000 with fedora core 3 kernel 2.6.10-1.770_FC3. I
have researched playing dvd's with xine and i ran the xine testing app.
It tells me that dma is disabled. I cannot re-enable dma. I posted to
the dell forums about problems playing dvd's. A SuSE guy replied and
said the latest kernel changed the pata drive from /dev/hdc to
/dev/sdc0. At notebookforums they say they "unblacklisted CD/DVDs from
the libsata code." I was hoping for a way to fix this problem. Any help
or ideas appreciated.
