Installing VLC media player on openSuse10.2


I use the following instruction to add VideoLAN' repository:

"Download VLC media player for SUSE Linux using YaST
Add VideoLAN's repository
First, add a new repository (installation source) in YaST (YaST2 -> Software -> Installation Sources)
Add the following Repository:
Type: HTTP / Servername: download.videolan.org /
Directory: /pub/videolan/vlc/SuSE/<SUSE Version>
Replace <SUSE Version> in the Directory above with your installed SuSE Version. Supported at this time are :
10.2
10.3
11.0"

but I got an error message:
'Unable to create installation source
from URL 'http://download.videolan.org//pub/videolan/vlc/SuSE/SUSE10.2'.
Details:
Unknown source type for http://download.videolan.org//pub/vi.../SuSE/SUSE10.2
Try Again?'

I would like to install vlc media player on my OpenSUSE10.2.
Any help would be appreciated.

Download this repo and install

http://download.videolan.org//pub/vi.../VideoLAN.repo

Or replace the last SUSE10.2 in your URL with 10.2 instead ie. replace

http://download.videolan.org//pub/vi.../SuSE/SUSE10.2 with

http://download.videolan.org//pub/vi.../vlc/SuSE/10.2

good luck

Thank you and I am now able to download the repository.
But when installing with Yast, there are a lot of missing dependencies
on my computer that I cannot resolve.

Are you having trouble with missing dependencies generally, or are you having trouble with VLC missing dependencies only? The videolan repo should take care of all dependencies for VLC, so I am assuming you are having general dependency problems. I have run SUSE in the past, but these days I run Fedora, so I can't test out any SUSE yast problems for you, sorry.

Your best bet would be to get onto the openSUSE 10.2 forums http://forums.opensuse.org/ and I am sure you will find answers there. Good luck.

Somehow after I restart my computer, it offered some updates for vlc
(could be to resolve missing dependencies). And my hard-disk was running
short-of disk space. So I resize my Linux SUSE partition, using Paragon Partition Manager, only to find out that it cannot restart due to booting
problem. I donīt know how to repair this problem. So I format the partition and instead install Ubuntu 8.04.
Thanks anyway.
