Q.  How do you play and copy DVDs on Linux

A.  I don't know about all distros but here's what worked
for me with Fedora 8.

- Make sure you have the livna dnf repository installed and enabled.
  (Instructions here http://rpm.livna.org/rlowiki)

- To play DVDs use The VLC Media Player

dnf install vlc
- To backup (aka copy) DVDs I tried k9copy:
dnf install k9copy
It appeared to install all right but the version I tried (1.2.0-1) crashes when I attempt to open the DVD.
