Re: [opensuse] libdvdcss repository not working

Howdy,

I am installing opensuse 12.2 on a client's computer, and he needs to
be able to play DVDs. I followed the link

http://forums.opensuse.org/content/127-multimedia-restricted-formats-installation-guide-12-2.html

that has you install packman and the repository for libdvdcss in order
to play DVDs.

The regular packman repo is off line today for some reason, so I
connected to the mirror in Taiwan and it did fine.

However, the repository at http://opensuse-guide.org/repo/12.2/ for
libdvdcss is not connecting at all. I don't know if this is a problem
on my end or on the network, but I am wondering if perhaps there are
other mirrors available for this repository as well, just like the
alternate packman mirrors?

Here is the response from the command line when I tried to install and
refresh the repository:

jun@ntmpi:~> sudo zypper ar -f http://opensuse-guide.org/repo/12.2/ libdvdcss

So you see the host name is not being recognized for some reason.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I had trouble with this repo in zypper yesterday too
It's working for me right now

If you still have trouble, let me know and and I will pull the .rpm for you (32 or 64 bit??)
