problem installing libdvdcss-1.0.9.src.rpm

Hello ,I'm running suse 10 (64 bit ) distro and I want to play dvd movies.I want to install libdvdcss-1.2.9-1.src.rpm but it says that group sax doesnot exist - using root and that kind of stuff.
Could anyone please help me
Thanks a lot

P.S. I have 64 bit processor so are the files stored in some
inapropriate place?

Not a big deal, the user group sax does not exist on most systems so root is used instead. This is perfectly normal and expected.

FYI: source rpm packages are provided to build the binary rpm package for your current configuration. The installable rpm(s) are built from the source and the new installable rpm package(s) will be in the proper location when the building is successfully completed.
