Please copy the files from the following package as root to the directory /usr/lib/powerpc-linux-gnu.

Is that a missing package from the Fienix repository? If so I can add it.

Maybe you could add the package libdvd-pkg.
I was able to install the package libdvd-pkg 1.4.2-1-1 (DVD-Video playing library -installer) on Fienix today. After that it automatically compiled the needed libraries for playing DVDs.

Works, but with big framedrop ;-)
In real software video oputput it is not for DVDs suitable, but something around 420p could be OK
