yesterday I decided that I was sick of not being able to watch my DVDs so after looking around a bit I installed VLC. I always had good expieriences with VLC using windows so I thought I’d give it a try…
While watching “Fight club” to test the whole thingy the Sound started to cut out, every couple of seconds it would jerk for a tiny moment, the longer the film played the worse it got…
So I started looking around the forums… I found a “one-click” sollution, so I tried that, all of a sudden nothing was working anymore… Banshee didn’t even recognise my MP3s anymore…
So I decided to just Install OpenSUSE again new…
Fresh Install and all systems go!
For some reason my WLAN connection was running once the system had booted…!?
I hadn’t given in the key yet, but I was online!?
I don’t even know if I’m in thehouse network or in some other network!?
Next I went onto a site that requires a flash plugin. I clicked on the button. The flash plugin did not however install…!?
Then I looked at a post by OldCPU > New Users > Multi Media, since I’m NOT an expierienced user I scrolled all the way down and hit the “one-click” Gnome link…
-I got a couple of “untrusted Keys” and hit OK.
-I then got 3 “Conflicts” that needed to be solved manualy, somthing about “gstreamer”.I selected the first option under each header and let the downloads / Installs run…
I have no Idea whats going on here…
My MP3s are still not playing…
I tried installing Flash again and it didn’t work…

You can start VLC from a terminal with the -vvv option. This will dump
debug information in the terminal. Then start the DVD as usual.
The debug info should give a clue what’s wrong with the sound.
Copy that information (any errors) and post it here.
I had a similar problem with VLC and sound, and I finally solved it by
compiling VLC myself.
Not sure about your other issues, but a re-install usually isn’t needed
to solve a problem.
I start VLC by right clicking on an Icon and selecting VLC as a player…
*I’ve managed to get VLC to play my MP3s - Got sound!
*I tried the MP3s again with Banshee - it gives me a little red box with a white X !?
*The DVD runs with VLC now but with no sound - there is a little red circle by the volume - looks like mute…
*I havn’t tried the totem yet… but dont expect good results…
…sombody told me to disable IPv6 a wile back…
So, I’ll do that now.

there is a need to be able to make deliberate and sound decisions on
(for example) resolving software install conflicts…if you need to
use something easier, then use what works for you…and, if you get
tired of paying the higher price out of pocket for less deliberate
thinking and study on your part, you can always come back and try again…
there is no doubt that the other two operating systems are easier to
learn (less to learn) and have fairly good training wheels (which help
you not make mistakes by removing options and freedom to experiment…
I agree with you!
didn’t Bill Gates say that he would rather see a user using a pirate copy of windows than use any other (free) opperating system!?
Thats why I’m testing this out, I am currently in a position where I want to “convert” several people away from windows because I don’t agree with the concept, particularly compared to the phylosophy of LINUX.
I consided my Windows knowlege/ skills as above average, having worked part time in the University IT Dept. where I did alot of installations and trouble shooting… now, taking my first little steps with OpenSUSE I feel like a fish out of water… Everything is new and I don’tknow where to start.
The only thing is that if I convert sombody to another system, I would like to be abe to support them… I’m still at the bottom of the learning curve. I’m sure, with expierience it is possible to get a OpenSUSE PC up and running in no time… but I’m still having HUGE problems.

As advised by others, it’s important to get your repositories and
package dependencies sorted first.
There are also a lot of posts wrt this in these forums. If in doubt,
better ask here.
Also I’d avoid the 1-click installer, as it may add stuff which is not
needed, and can cause conflicts with things already installed.
Once this is done, and you still have problems with DVD sound, we’ll
work it from there.
