Missing repository

Hi,

In this 12.1 system I added at the time this repo:


http://opensuse-guide.org/repo/12.1

which is the one needed to read movie DVDs. Since some time, the repo
fails to refresh. Checking with firefox, indeed it fails, error is:


Forbidden

You don't have permission to access /repo/12.1/ on this server.

The instructions at


http://opensuse-guide.org/codecs.php

give this address as correct (12.3 version also fails), so… what is
happening?


Cheers / Saludos,

If all your wanting is libdvdcss, then just grab the src rpm and
rebuild it, make and gcc are all you need;

Oh, didn’t see it. Thanks. Email sent.

No, I do have the rpm installed. I remember building it years ago. I’m
simply curious why it is not active, precisely now that people
installing 12.3 will need it.
