You could have a look in here:NOVELL FORUMS
This is probably the wrong forum.

You may also want to look at the SLE support forums at :slight_smile:

I want to see your repositories, so write

# zypper lr -d

Stamostolias - are you familiar with SuSE Linux Enterprise Desktop (SLES) or SuSE Linux Enterprise Server (SLES) where user Ikstomi notes they have one (either) of these SLE versions ?

Stamostolias, note those products are NOT the same as openSUSE, and Ikstomi’s SLE repositories will be COMPLETELY different from that of openSUSE.

I do note there are Packman repositories for SuSE Linux Enterprise - service pack-1:

… but best I can see there is no Packman populated repos for SLE (before SP-1).

Ikstomi could try install the script mmcheck (running the openSUSE-11.3 version in this case would be harmless) which should help point out some apps they could ‘try’ to get running in SLE to get superior multimedia capabilities.

Ok sorry for that.
