I can search it (with the correct source selected, but, when I attempt to download anything, it gives me an error.
This error may occur if the source has been changed after you've added it to YaST. For this reason you should run a refresh prior to every intended use. You can enable automatic refresh for the source in YaST -> Installation Source or run this manually every time (Edit -> Refresh).

Sometime, I tend to agree. In your case, I don't know if this may not be connected to the major changes in package managment that came with 10.1. It's still not a released version, so it may be buggy as well.

Now that we're speaking of yast, is anyone aware of any good reason for the lack of progress bars or numbers. Since just having the "working" icon on the cursor brings the feeling that there's just a memory leak somewhere...
I know it might be difficult to make an exact progress indicator, but something would be nice.

THis is for SuSE 10
SuSE 10 to play mp3

Forget Amarok

open YAST

Go to Installation Sources

Add new sources

choose http

add this address to the server

packman.rsync.zmi.at/suse/10.0

change the refresh option to on

now, go to software management

Search for w32codec-all and install it

search for mplayer then install it

You can now play mp3s using mplayer

Forgive me if I don't agree. MPlayer is great for movies, but to play mp3, I still prefer amarok. BTW: isn't w32codec required for xine only? I thought that mplayer has these codecs built-in.

Hmm.. I have a new problem...
I cant make any video work :'( I tried installing VLC but there were a million requirements for that, and when I installed one, two more came up.. It was like some Schwarzenegger movie...

Anyway, do you have any idea on the simplest way to make some of the already-there-videoplayers work? They don't even give out any errors, just.. Won't work.

Thoughts?

i use suse 10 and found it easier to add packman as an installation source from a terminal window, then go to Yast and go to where you install new apps from and search for Mplayer. It will download from packman and then install with all the codecs necessary to play mp3's, dvd's and windows video files. Mplayer just seems to handle everything. Save yourself the headache of xine, kaffiene and amarok and just go with mplayer. ( iwish i could give you better descriptions of how to do this but you are using 10.1 and I am not sure if it would be the same as 10.0)

That's the thing, adding sources from the terminal window doesn't seem to work in 10.1
(or if you know some nice way, please tell me)
I will try to install Mplayer for a video player from sources, after I have slept a bit.

Farewell for the day.

Soo, for one reason or another, it seems my GCC version is ancient, and therefore I cannot compile :'(
I also tried VLC, which whined something about FFMPEG... It seems it's some codec, and I downloaded it, but I dunno where to put it or what to do with it anyways.
