Can someone help me get kaffeine (xine) to work in Suse 9.0
I try to play a Dvd and I get a message that says
"This version of Xine has only a reduced set of supported codecs. It is not able to play Dvd's.
Please read http://portal.suse.com/sdb/en/2003/09/xine_dvd.html
for further details."
And the suse website says:
" Movie Player Applications
Applies to: SUSE LINUX 9.0
You want to use movie player applications under SuSE Linux.
Movie player applications on SuSE Linux are unable to play a number of movie file formats, especially movie DVDs. Due to patented codecs and copy protection, SuSE is not allowed to deliver full-featured movie players with the distribution.
The xine lib package is especially affected. It is missing some plug-ins, so all xine-based players (like kaffeine, totem or noatun) are also unable to play these media.
Please do not write bug reports to these projects when you are unable to play files, because this is not a bug, but a legal requirement and neither the authors nor SuSE have a chance to fix this.
Unfortunately there is, to our knowledge, no legal DVD player for Linux currently sold by anyone."
I've downloaded and installed the following rpm's.
libdvdcss and libdvdcss-devel
That doesn't seem to help.
Any thoughts would be appreciated!
I also tried to compile mplayer with the following command:
./configure --enable-gui --enable-png
and I get the following error:
Checking for gethostbyname2 ... yes
Checking for GUI ... yes
Error: X11 support required for GUI compilation
Any help would be appreciated.
I am very happy with Suse 9.0 especially Gnome!
Suse has configured everything perfectly so far,
sound, digital camera, Mozilla has flash and Java already working,
plus I love the bitstream vera sans fonts that I've enabled in gnome and Mozilla, its a sweet setup. If I could just get the darn dvd player working it would be perfect.
