vlc player

I have a fresh install of suse 9.2 professional. I was wondering if anyone was able to get vlc player to install on here?

I'm pretty new to linux, so i'm not really sure. Maybe there's another program that's easier to install so that i can play divx/xvid encoded files.

I have apt-get (apt4rpm) installed, if that helps. but i've tried using that to get vlc, mplayer, etc. and it doesn't find them

mplayer would be the easier of the two if your building from source ( vlc from source is a pain, but doable if you have what you need and know what you are doing, if you want everything). if you can't find packages for mplayer, make sure you have a working development environment and:

glib-1.2.x + glib-1.2.x-devel
gtk-1.2.x + gtk-1.2.x-devel

both of these are needed if you want the gui build ( you may also need libpng + libpng-devel depending on what you have installed on your system).
