I'm setting up a box for a Media Center - when I try to play a DVD

support formats not included. If I follow the link etc., I think it
ends up installing the packman repo (which I already had), but that's
it. If I check http://en.opensuse.org/Kaffeine, I'm told I can
install the packman Kaffeine version, but this doesn't seem to exist:

http://packman.links2linux.org/package/kaffeine

This next is probably building it from source, but isn't this all a
bit strange?

check this link: http://opensuse-guide.org/codecs.php


Thanks, that was really helpful! We ought to update the opensuse wiki
with a link to Martin's page :-)

I still couldn't install k3b-codecs though - after installing the other
bits, I tried separately:

# zypper in k3b-codecs
Loading repository data...
Reading installed packages...
Resolving package dependencies...

Problem: k3b-codecs-2.0.2-15.58.i586 requires k3b = 2.0.2-15.58, but
this requirement cannot be provided
uninstallable providers: k3b-2.0.2-15.58.i586[packman.inode.at-suse]

I have noticed the same think in 12.1, kaffeine seems to be brocken
and does not install correctly extra software. A bug maybe ?


I think it's a bug, it's certainly not very user friendly.
