Then you didn't do a very good search. Takes about 2 minutes to put the
packman repo in install sources, and then search for whatever program
suits your needs. When a search for XMMS as an example comes up, it
lists the versions from suse, AND the version from packman. Gee, select
the version from packman and install it. It's not hard.

Everything you said is WRONG. Out of the box, yes, they don't work, but
adding one repo, and they all work. I know. I've done it on two
separate machines. Helix is available on the non-oss disk. Wasn't too
hard to find. Just did a search with the yast installer. It's there
along with all the other stuff including the gstream addon. Are you
sure you did this correctly? If you did, then something is wrong with
your setup.
