So I'm a complete newbe to linux, just installed Suse 10.0 this morning and am now trying to get mplayer to get to work.
So I went to www*dot*mplayerhq*dot*hu to download it.
Found in the manual (see:mplayerhq*dot*hu/DOCS/HTML/en/linux.html#rpm) that a Suse rpm was available at packman.links2linux*dot*de/?action=128
So I downloaded paketa and paketb there, and tried them both.
First try I got a depencies error message for some missing codecs, so I aborted and copied those codecs to /usr/local/lib/codecs. (They can be downloaded on the main mplayer site).
After that the depenceies error message disappeared and the installation seemed to be ok.
However, now the problem.
When I go to the menu to start the app, it just does nothing.
When I try to open a dvd wich is in the drive, it just does nothing.
What am I doing wrong or what did I forget to do? I'm simply at a total blanc on why it isn't working.
If you need some info to help me solve this, please tell me what info to post here
tnx allready for having a newbe-forum :P
note:I sillyfied the urls so I could show where I went. Can't post urls when you don't have 5 posts yet.... :-/
