I’m trying to get Opensuse 13.2 working on a Lenovo T61 laptop. I’ve always used the one-click sound installs and everything has worked . Now amarok is not working, and I can’t find the 13.2 one-click install. I’ve followed the directions to use packman and libdvdcss2 and install the programs mentioned there, but amarok still doesn’t work. Where has the 13.2 one c;lick install gone?
New packages might not necessarily be installed from Packman.
OTOH, I notice the nvidia repo in your repo list.
Did you install the driver and is it fully working?
If not, this could cause applications crashing…
Please install Mesa-demo-x (if not installed already) and post the output of:
glxinfo | grep render
(run as user)
Also. check if phonon-backend-vlc is installed and remove it if it is.
The version shipped in 13.2 doesn’t work with the latest VLC from Packman, and causes applications to crash when e.g. trying to play a sound.
You have to use the gstreamer backend.
Ok so what I do is always first check if the program is in yast before I do the web (single click) search So I never see duplicates since the only programs I get via one click are one not found in the normal repos. and I don’t keep any of those repos active . I guess it could be that no check is done. Maybe something to ad to the wish list.
Just one additional note:
If you want to be able to play back “copy”-protected DVDs, you need to add the libdvdcss repo too (to be found in YaST’s “Community Repositories” list as well), and install libdvdcss2 after you added/enabled it.
