First, you're going to add an installation source:

1. Go to YaST.
2. Go to Change Source of Installation
3. Click the add button. Chose http.
4. Add mirror.mcs.anl.gov in the server area. Add /suse/i386/9.1 to the path area.
5. Next, highlight the new source you just added. Click the button labled "Up" until your new source is at the top.
6. Click finish.

Next:

1. Go to YaST.
2. Go to Install and Remove Software.
3. Search for gcc.
4. Make sure there's an X in the gcc box. If not, check it.
5. Repeat the search/check for make, binutils, automake, and anything else the error message spits out saying you don't have.
6. Click on the accept button. Wait.

Yeah, for whatever reason, the http server seems to be down for them. You can either replace it with or add to the list the following (make sure you select ftp when you add this):

server: mirror.mcs.anl.gov
path : /pub/suse/i386/9.1/

That particular site is generally really fast for me. Your milage may vary, due to our differing locations.

thanks tremor once again...
but after i type "make".... the following came out...
...

---------------------------------------------------------------
XviD has been successfully built.

* Binaries are currently located in the '=build' directory
* To install them on your system, you can run '# make install'
as root.
---------------------------------------------------------------

after 'make install' ...

toysoldier@linux:~/Documents/xvidcore/build/generic> make install
D: /usr/local/lib
/usr/bin/install: cannot change permissions of `/usr/local/lib': Operation not permitted
make: *** [install] Error 1

this came out..... its so demoralising...

You have to switch to root user first. Just type su in that directory, type in your root password, then do the make install.

Hi,

For installing video playback codecs, players and DVD backup tools add the packman source as a yast source.

http://packman.iu-bremen.de/suse/9.1

Teere are lots of good software there that is not part of the standard install from Novell SuSE.

You need to make sure that the xvidcore stuff is in your library path. I'm not honestly sure where it is defined in 9.1, as I just switched to it, and different distros put things in different places.

Maybe one of the guys/gals here can enlighten us both on this one.

Once you find the place where LD_SO_LIBRARY_PATH is defined, you can add it on there, and run ldconfig.

If I find where it's defined, I'll let ya know. However, unless you're looking to do lots of compiling and stuff yourself in the future, you might take Mr. Kane's suggestion above, as the Packman repository has everything you need for playing all of these media files.

The file is /etc/ld.so.conf

You might want to do a man on the command ldconfig so you understand what you're actually doing (although you don't need to, just thought it would be helpful for you to understand how dynamic libraries work).

Good luck!

thanks tremor. you are just wonderful. I went to http://packman.links2linux.org/?action=index to download the xine_lib files and bravo...i can view xvid on xine already.

Sorry i do not understand your instruction regarding the library path. I think i am just gonna stick to packman repository to get my codecs and such.

Thank you for your help again.

Cheers
