    Re: Medibuntu abandoned

    As of today (or maybe yesterday or the day before), it seems that "packages.medibuntu.org" no longer resolves, and the former IP address of the server, 88.191.127.22, is no longer pingable. It's Gone.

    So does this mean dvd playback is now broke in Ubuntu? You run the script "sudo /usr/share/doc/libdvdread4/install-css.sh" and you get the error "wget: unable to resolve host address `packages.medibuntu.org'".

    Re: medibuntu.org ??

    Has anyone with better knowledge than me got advice on what to do with systems which are currently using packages from Medibuntu? We can disable the medibuntu repositories in the sources list, but presumably that leaves unmaintained packages on the system which are not being updated and could cause a security risk if vulnerabilities are found in them.

    You can get libdvdcss2 from the Debian multimedia repository: http://mirror.home-dn.net/debian-mul...ibd/libdvdcss/

    It seems that packages.medibuntu.org is back up again - so maybe the outage earlier today was a temporary glitch. I note the Medibuntu website is saying "Maintainer Wanted" as mentioned but for now at least the site and the repository are back up.
