For Fienix:

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

Hi Christian,
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.
