   AFAIK, the Gtk interface hasn't been tested under OS X, please let us
know if you ever manage to get it working.

   Ok, this should have been "./lib" instead of "//lib". My fault, it should be
fixed in CVS. Try the following patch:

   I experienced the same behaviour. I couldn't really track the problem
because I don't have physical access to an OS X box, so if you have any
additional information on this topic it can be useful.

   By the way, when reading unencrypted DVDs, are you reading the
mounted VOB files, or are you reading directly from /dev/dvd using the
DVDioctl KEXT ?
