I have openSuse 11.0 installed on a computer that no has internet access at all and i need to get VLC on it (or something that can play avi with mp3 audio). I looked on the vlc site but they seem to only offer installs via package manager or terminal. What can i do?
Take a look at doctorjohn2’s how-tos. For example this one for 32-bit PCs:
OpenSuSE - Selected Packages and Dependencies (i586 & i686) - openSUSE Forums
I believe this is his 64-bit package:
OpenSuSE - Selected Packages and Dependencies (amd64) - openSUSE Forums
I have not used the above, so I may not have this 100% accurate, but I believe your solution is there.
I believe he packaged vlc with those packages.
