    Default 11.1 deleted all my multimedia programs


    I was happy with my 11.0 version of SuSE. After the update to 11.1 SuSE
    deleted all my multimedia programs: mplayer, VLC, Reaplayer, all codecs
    and XMMS. Even the virtualbox.
    Anybody with similar problems, I hate to reinstall everything.

    Simply add packman to your repository list (with OSS, Non-OSS and
    Update). There is guidance here for that. 'Repositories/11.1 -
    openSUSE-Community' (http://opensuse-community.org/Repositories/11.1)
    ONLY add packman, oss, non-oss, and update. No others. None. (You can
    add others ONLY when you understand the risks, and how to fix any
    problems that may arise).

    Once those are setup, go to YaST > Software > Software Management and
    select the apps you wish to install. Its very easy and simple to do.

    Thanks oldcpu.

    I'll try that, the other problem I have is Yast2 crash every time when
    runs to add programs or load the repos, I saw other post in the forum
    with same problems with version 11.1
    Even in root, yast2 crash also.

    Big mistake to upgrade man. I'll continue around here for possible
    solutions.

    option?

    I have 11.1 running on two PCs. I did a clean install. No crashes. It
    works great.

    Well I click on update. Then I got a message saying following changes
    made to the system, I did check all of them, then after the update all
    multimedia programs gone. Other problems that I resolved were: compiz
    and sound.
    I reinstalled compiz, but now emerald is not working all window frames
    gone.
    I guess clean option is not a problem, but update may be causing
    conflicts with old and new programs.
    I'm using KDE 3.5.10 release 21.11

    Having said that, everytime I do, someone with a completely different
    configuration will chime in and state an "update" worked for them and
    has always worked for them.

    And thats fine, but IMHO if you are seeing these problems, and myself
    and others that I know who did clean installs are not, then you should
    do a clean install.
