Hidden costs of free Mandriva os
I've installed Mandriva 10.10.2 and it seems ok, but I cant run any mp3 files nor will VLC have sound, but returns a pop up:
No suitable decoder module:
VLC does not support the audio or video format "flac". Unfortunately there is no way for you to fix this.
Mandriva directs me to a commercial dl site for me to purchase the necessary (?) software. Is that my only option/
Thanks for your time.
