    I'm pretty certain that the linux on the EEE is not based on suse. Under suse there's a pacman package for the windows 32-bit codecs that works with non-drm protected wma files.

    For mplayer, at least, you can install the codecs "manually" in a pretty much distribution agnostic way. Now sure how the other players work, cause mplayer is my swiss army knife of choice. YMMV

    From the MPlayer Download page there's a Binary Codec Packages section. Your arch is x86, just pick any mirror close. Then unpack the *.bz2 file you get and put it in /usr/lib/win32/ Mplayer should play your files then.

    I'm pretty sure that it uses Xandros.

    You need a codec package or mplayer.

    Did you install decode for wma?
    You can try the codepack as below

    Follow that link just above you, and then there is a 1-click installer.

    Since it's not suse-based, then the pacman repository is unlikely to help you. Go to the mplayer site and follow the instructions in my previous post-- they should work for most any distro. Mplayer is pretty universal.
