help with installing/updating xmms and xine


I have just installed SuSE 9.2 and it has Xine 0.99. I want to update this to the newer version and secondly I want to install xmms for wma/mp3 playback. Ideally an rpm for xmms would be great.

Thanks. Im a n00b so...

ftp.suse.com/pub/suse/i386/9.0/suse/i586/xine-ui-0.99.rc0a-84.i586.rpm
ftp.suse.com/pub/suse/i386/9.0/suse/i586/xine-lib-0.99.rc0a-84.i586.rpm

There is a sticky thread about update sources in the SUSE forum. Have a look for the packman source. You may also look directly at http://packman.links2linux.org/

bulliver: Why do you recommend rpm's for SuSE 9.0? Does that make sense?

I just posted links to them, that's hardly a recommendation

Anyway, it was a typo/mistake. Just change 9.0 to 9.2 in the links and you are good to go...

Well, it's the official SuSe ftp site, so I'd say it's a good place to get your RPMs...

Just have a look through there, lots of stuff to install

BTW, if you googled but couldn't find anything, mention it in your post, then people like me won't tell you to STFW

But then you actually did a downgrade instead on an upgrade!

Even if this is correct, what do you gain when you replace them? The version on packman is 1.0, btw.
