Ah, you see? Not very useful statement. Not even an example was given.

And your point is? People will always have problems. Try to make just
ONE program so usefriendly that there will be no questions at all. I'm
trying this right now for the ORacle 8.1.6 installation, and the longer
I think about every single step the more desperate I get. I cannot do
it. Someone's gonna cry for help whatever I do. So I still consider your
statement useless. I promise you'll find lots of problem reports here
for all time this list exists.

Then you will have no problems getting it to work, period. I'm the
example that shows this is true. I DO use SuSE Linux, you know...

Which package requires it? Did you file a bug report? I've had no
problems listening to any mp3's, don't know which package yo used.
By the way, mpg123 is in 7.0, don't know about 6.4.

Did you file a bug report (feedback@xxxxxxx)? Of course it's bad.

I have a lot of constructive help to offer, even setting up somebodys
Oracle server for free (plus data migration) on a box 10000 km away over
the Internet on the weekend. But, I demand a constructive contribution
from you as well. You get what you give, at least from me. Other people
will always help you, regardless of what you do, and I guess that's
better for business.
