    Default OpenSuSE - Selected Packages and Dependencies (amd64)

    Hi everyone

    I decided to compile and archive with multimedia packages as there was a request for the same. I hadn't done so before as I thought there would not be any demand (and I think there still isn't), anyway, for the sake of completion.

    I have changed my approach a little when compared to previous compilations. This is a part of my ongoing effort to try and improve the ease of installation.

    • This time I installed test systems using KDE live and GNOME live CDs.This ensures that users who install from live CDs are not left out,unlike previous releases of mine where having the Open SuSE DVD was a prerequisite.
    • Another change I have implemented is incorporating libxine (for KDE) and gstreamer plugins (for GNOME).


    Packages:

    • kchmviewer - a program to view CHM files
    • mplayer - a multimedia player
    • mplayer-plugin - firefox plugin for mplayer
    • audacious - a winamp look-alike
    • k3b - CD/DVD writing
    • k3b-codecs - multimedia plugins for K3b
    • k3b-lang - K3b language pack
    • sox
    • devede - DVD authoring
    • audacity - A sound file editor
    • avidemux - A demuxer, similar to VirtualDub
    • ffmpeg - CLI video encoding tool
    • transcode - CLI video encoding tool
    • ntfs-config - mount ntfs partitions easily
    • vlc - a multimedia player
    • libdvdcss - dvd decryption
    • w32 - win 32 codecs for mplayer and kaffeine
    • libxine (KDE users only) - xine (unrestricted) for kaffeine
    • gstreamer010-plugins-moodbar (GNOME users only) - plugins for totem
    • gstreamer-0_10-plugins-ugly-lang (GNOME users only) - plugins for totem
    • gstreamer-0_10-plugins-ugly (GNOME users only) - plugins for totem


    Download the archive SuSE_11.0_amd64.zip from here

    Mirror 1: Rapidshare

    Mirror 2: FTP Download

    Extract the archive to a folder called August2008 in your home folder.

    Note: KDE4 ark seems to have some issues??? The Extract function of the gui in Ark does not seem to work, at least for me. You can work around this by clicking on the archive to open it in a window, press Ctrl and A on your keyboard to select all the rpms, minimise this window, open your home folder, create the August2008 folder, and paste the contents into it; then it works fine.

    Steps:
    1. Press Alt and F2 and type the following
    if you are a KDE user
    yast

    if you are a GNOME user
    yast2


    and press ENTER

    2. Key in your root password and press ENTER

    7. Now click on Software Management


    8. In GNOME type the package name in the filters box and see the package automatically come up as you type.

    KDE users - type the name of package you are looking for in the search box and click search

    When you find the package you want check it. The dependencies will automatically get selected.
    Do this till you cover all the above packages. Click Apply

    Enjoy your OpenSuSE 11.0 !!!

    While I appreciate your gratitude, I request any more users to refrain from thanking me on this thread. This is to prevent my next follow up post from going to page 2 or 3.
    Thank you everyone.

    I am not sure if i should be asking this, but here it is,

    I am using SLED 10.2 x86_64 , trying to install mplayer and i get dependency error for
    libdirectfb-0.9.so.25()(64)
    which i can't seem to find from any source. My question is can i use this package of yours or should i go about compiling for my system?

    Well you should not be asking that question in this thread. Anyway here is the file you require
    ftp://ftp.opensuse.org/distribution/...-29.x86_64.rpm
