Hardware: Acer Aspire Z3-710 all-in-one
OS: Leap 15.1 fresh install
Thank you for providing a very clear set of instructions in post #1. I followed it exactly and encountered only two conflicts (not in any way the fault of the multimedia guide):
problem with installed package libxine2-pulse-1.2.9-lp151.3.3.x86_64 ] keep obsolete libxine2-pulse-1.2.9-lp151.3.3.x86_64 [x] install libxine2-pulse-1.2.9-147.1.x86_64 (with vendor change) openSUSE --> http://packman.links2linux.de problem with installed package youtube-dl-bash-completion-2019.08.13-lp188.8.131.52.noarch [x] install youtube-dl-bash-completion-2019.09.28-lp151.1.1.noarch (with vendor change) openSUSE --> http://packman.links2linux.de ] keep obsolete youtube-dl-bash-completion-2019.08.13-lp184.108.40.206.noarch
I opted to select the non-obsolete packages (based on a hunch and a prayer) and completed the install without any other issues.
Audio players and YouTube videos continue to work as before. Although video DVDs play on three other SuSE installations (two are 15.1 upgrades and one 42.3), the DVDs would not even start here (but they bring up the players). Perhaps they are encrypted. Based on my notes from previous installs, I decided to add libdvdcss2 from YaST (again, based on a hunch and a prayer), and now the DVD plays in VLC, Dragon Player, and SMPlayer (but not Kaffeine, which works on the other machines, likely due to another codec on those). I’m going to quit while I’m ahead.
Again, thank you for the time and effort to provide these invaluable instructions.
