Kaffeine: xine error No Demux Plugin

I have purchased SuSE 9 pro and have been trying for weeks to get video. Currently I'm up to having kaffeine 0.4 installed but it doesn't find any demux plugin. I get the following error:

xine error: No demux plugin.

The xine version installed is xine 0.9.23
have gone to and downloaded and installed the "libxine1-(version)-xxxxxx.k6.rpm for AMD K6" stuff like theyt say, but nothing happens. I have an old K-6 (2) 533, 20 GB HDD, 320 MB RAM.

What am I missing?

After the demux problem is beat, the is a small issue of the libdvdcss that I can't get to work. SuSE seems not to like me or my machine.

Would be grateful for any help. Am at the end of my rope and considering a return to Windoze.

Just movie trailers, say from yahoo. The dvd player installation also seems a bit dodgy. Its there, mounted that is, but I can't play dvd's. (Am trying to concentrate on one thing at a time and since kaffeine is at least telling me what's wrong that would be a good place to start.)

The dvd problem seems to be the decoding. Do you think these are related issues. I am out of my depths here. Just learning about linux (the hard way). I have managed to install Avidemux, but it and xine don't seem to get along with each other. This confuses me.

Don't blame SuSE for xine problems. There will be a day when Lindows too will have problems distributing licensed decoders. Redhat did with xmms. There is a fix to the SuSE problems you were having. I had the same probs and I fixed it.
