Problem with K3b not able to burn music CDs

I am having trouble getting K3b to burn music CD’s. When I open K3b, I get a message saying that it will not burn mp3s due to a missing decoder plugin. I read another post that suggested installing the K3b-codecs package. When I try to install this package, I get a dependency error message saying “nothing provides hal-resmgr”. How do I get this package installed so that I can burn mp3s? Thank you.

If you haven’t done so already, I suggest that you install K3b from the Packman repository and install the K3b-codecs from the same repository. In Yast when you select K3b you can select the version; make sure that you select the correct one, it will end with .pm and the correct arcitecture. _x64 if you are running openSUSE 64bit or i586 for 32-bit.

I cannot see the version that you listed from the Packman repository. The only version of k3b that is listed from the Packman repository is This version has the dependency issue also. Am I looking in the right repository? Here is the URL I am using: Index of /pub/packman/suse/11.0 . If you are looking in a different repository, can you send me the link? Thanks.

Well you are using a version of SUSE that has ended support.

I was able to get this to work by adding the Packman repository using the “Community Repositories” option in Yast. I was then able to select and install versions of k3b and k3b-codecs that worked. It looks like I am ready to burn mp3’s now!

Thanks to everyone for the help. I am a newbie to Open Suse and I would have been lost without the suggestions. :slight_smile:
