Okay so I waited a bit and gave openSUSE 12.3 a go, while very nice there is still one thing missing.
The ability to play netflix on opensuse.
I can do it in Ubuntu, I can do it on fuduntu, but not on openSUSE
Now I did request a package of this for opensuse over at openfate and it got rejected, I tried compiling it too and no luck.
Now this round things seem very close to getting it working but its still giving me errors, even after seemingly sucessfully converting the packages over from ubuntu via alien.
My issue seems to be sudo, I have tried sudo but to no avail and I get this:
As for my issue I semi solved it, by trying an older version of netflix desktop with help from fuduntu.
But its a semi workaround as I was able to fix wine-compholio via alien but I cant get a link working to my wine firefox.
How can I get a workaround for this?
what I need to point to is located in /.netflix-desktop/drive_c/Program Files/Mozilla Firefox/firefox.exe but creating a desktop link fails.
make sure to set the audio settings in wine settings to match your systems sound card
