Unhappy xine installation

Hey all,

I'm having a little trouble getting xine to work. I've been trying to get dvd playback working on suse 9.2 for a while. I finally downloaded libxine-dvd, xine-ui and libdvdcss (all RPM's). In Konsole, I typed in the command:
"rpm 'file name'"for each of them and they seemed to install fine (with no error messages) but I can't for the life of me figure out how to launch the program. I've tried doing a search for them but it doesn't find anything. I've also tried to type the file name in konsole but that doesn't do anything either. If you know what I'm doing wrong of if you have any solutions, please let me know.

If they did install fine, you should be able to start Xine with
or if that didn't work right after the installation, try logging out, pressing CTRL+ALT+F7 to kill X (it should restart right away) and logging in and trying again. LaTeX needed this to work.

Why didn't you install Xine using the SuSE Yast? Did you have a specific reason to install using rpm command; oh, and did you use SuSE specific rpms (does it use rpm)?

I always thought it's
rpm -Uvh package.rpm
or something, but I guess it works just by "rpm package.rpm" too..

The reason I'm not using yast is because suse won't allow dvd playback for some reason. I was told that it has to be installed manually.
