Inspiron 6000

I was so happy with Breezy on my desktop I thought I'd try my Dell Inspiron 6000 on my wireless G network. All went happily with the install. Power settings, sound, graphics all perfect. The hitch came when I tried to setup my wireless connection and my Broadcom based Dell 1370 mini-pci was not recognized. I have made several attempts to get NSISWrapper to work without success. I'm not losing faith however. I'm so new I just need more time to fine tune this and I'm sure it will work, everyone on the forums writes of success.
Another problem is DVD playback; movies. I will try Mplayer and see if that solves my problem. I'd appreciate any feedback on my wireless and DVD problems. Enjoying Ubuntu Breezy Badger immensely!

DVD issue

Firstly, a warm welcome to this site :)

Regarding your DVD problem: I'm using VLC (VideoLANClient) as my favourite media player application. It has built in codecs for nearly everything (DivX, Xvid, MP3, MPEG, etc.), so you don't have to install them manually.

I have written a short manual how to install VLC. It's very simple. I have, whatsoever, no experience with the NSISWrapper.

VLC (VideoLANClient)

Thanks to MikeTT my DVD problems were easily solved. I had jerky playback and had to enable dma on my dvd drive which is covered in the Ubuntu guide. Now DVD playback is smooth and works great! Thanks Mike!
