Angry Amarok Mp3 Support on Suse 11.3


Hello, iam new to linux and i would really like to learn as much as possible. Here's my question, I get this error when i try to play mp3 files with amarok.

Amarok wants to connect to the internet to get me the codecs to play such files and i don't have internet @ home.
I have been searching around to find if there is any off-line or standalone install for amarok mp3 support if i am not connected to the internet.

Please Please help, i need the offline installer for amarok.

Thank you
Regards

http://packman.links2linux.org/package/mad
http://packman.links2linux.org/package/lame
http://packman.links2linux.org/package/mpg321/9431

Also grab the needed dependencies.... Speex, alsa, win32-codecs, libcaca, etc... You should be good after that.

Cheers,

Josh

Hi Josh
I tried following all those links , with no success. They aint working, is either if the package is unavailable. I couldn't really get anything I could use. To be precise I swa many RPM and wasn't show which one was gonna work for my situation.

I get this error when i try to get them "Failed to find file to download for file openSUSE_11.3/Essentials/i586/libxine1-aa-1.1.19-2.pm.45.17.i586.rpm on any mirror "

Please Help atleast with a more detailed explanation on how to get the packages and install them for offline use.
Thank you

You can start there and download the packages needed, then install them via the command line using the rpm command like so:
Code:
rpm -Ivh

Well as far as I know mplayer is the easiest to install from source. But then again since that might be difficult install 'wine' on the computer and then download vlc player (my favourate) and then you can run the windows application in wine. Try looking for the portable version of vlc.
As far as the internet is concerned I guess this is something that would depend on the desktop (gnome, kde etc). Look for internet connectivity icon and tell us what you find. Suse does an excellent job of hardware detection and so I do not think this would be a major issue.
BTW - I believe 'yast2' on the terminal is a very friendly and you should be able to figure things out.
Hope this helps.
