Which version of the CSS library is this?

You need UDF filesystem to mount a DVD - however, there is no need to have
UDF if you have Xine, Ogle or MPlayer (in reverse order of preference ;),
as the DVD decoder libraries handle the contents. You just pop in a DVD
and click the play button in either program..provided it's compiled right
<snip strange errors>
It's ISO filesystem that fails, so I'd wager you'll need UDF filesystem
support compiled in - just compile a module and insert it.

Ah..maybe you need a /dev/dvd symlink from the actual device?
Have a look in Ogle's readme for anything mentioning links, /dev/dvd etc.
