ok. I give up soon. I’ve been trying to play .wmas with amarok but obviously I’m not doing things right. can someone provide a step by step guide for me - and adjust it as I tell you how much it doesn’t work (like the ones I found on the net didn’t work)?
I’m sure someone on here is able to fix this for me. it’s incredibly annoying. vlc plays .wmas but I use amarok because… well it’s the best player I’ve ever used. and it has last.fm built in.
so any help would be reasonably appreciated. thanks
ok. it is frankly IMPOSSIBLE to do this. have you ever heard this: “libxine1-1.1.15-0.pm.0.x86_64 obsoletes xine-lib provided by xine-lib-184.108.40.206.1.x86_64”? because I have. maaaaaaany times. and what’s the use of the replacement button if it doesn’t work? how on earth do I actually do this so I can watch AVIs (apparently I can’t do that either) and listen to WMAs???
I’ve tried countless of packages, like this one: http://opensuse-community.org/codecs-kde.ymp
no one seems to work thanks to that error message about xine.
You neglected to mention if you are using SuSE-8.x, or 9.x or 10.x, or 11.0 ? And even if you did, I can’t give you a step-by-step guide.
But I recommend you setup your repositories with ONLY oss, non-oss, update and packman (and NO others). Guidance for doing that is here:
Repositories - openSUSE-Community
Once your repositories are setup, then install the packman packaged libxine1, xine-ui, amarok, libffmpeg0, w32codec-all. Do not use the Novell packaged versions. Ensure you have the xine engine selected in amarok.
I recommend you become more familiar with openSUSE concepts:
Concepts - openSUSE
OK, then remove xine-lib and try again.
errr… I tried that earlier, but no xine-lib popped up. now it did. and I removed it. and I ran that thingy… and it worked. woah. I’m amazed. something must’ve caused it to not pop up when I checked earlier. might be my terrible internet connection that made the package manager confused or whatever. avis work and I guess wmas work (I’ll test once I can get my hands on one).
sorry, my bad. thanks for the link to the concepts. I will look onto that. I’m sorry for not doing better research myself, but I’m slightly in a hurry to get everything set up and I haven’t used SUSE for about 5-6 years. I’ve been stuck with Fedora forever, but openSUSE 11.0 is about to replace it. at least on my notebook. cheers!
