no mp3 on openSUSE 10.2


Well...I just seem to keep on running into problems.

I have installed XMMS on openSUSE 10.2 but it even refuses to add mp3 files to its playlist. I tried banshee but it dint work either, nor did JuK. I tried finding the mp3 plugins in the repositiories but there wsnt anything there, nor did I find anything on the Non-OSS CD.

What can I do to get all of this working?

MP3 support for XMMS
To enable MP3 support for XMMS you need to have the file libmpg123.so. It normally comes with the XMMS installation, but not with openSUSE due to legal issues. You can obtain it by downloading either

an XMMS RPM from http://www.xmms.org
http://www.osnews.com/files/xmms-mp3-fc1.tar.gz
If you do the latter, which is easy, install it like this:

download the file
execute these commands:
$ tar xvzf xmms-mp3-fc1.tar.gz
$ su (enter root passwd here)
# cp xmms-mp3-fc1/libmpg123.so /usr/lib/xmms/Input
# exit
$ rm -rf xmms-mp3-fc1/

done!
This will copy the libmpg123.so to your xmms plugin directory.
The thing is this procedure has been outlined for openSUSE 10...will it work on 10.2 too?
