A couple of weeks ago (I think) I posted a message stating that vlc will
not even start under openSUSE 11.4.
I just re-installed 11.4, as a totally new installation, and did all the
necessary updates to all files. Still no vlc. xine works fine but not vlc.
I then remembered that someone - I *think* that it was Mark Goldstein -
responded to my original post with the suggestion to run vlc with the
prefix of 'strace'; I just amended the properties for vlc and now it
runs correctly for me.
I don't remember thanking Mark for his suggestion which I now do: Thank
you Mark for the 'fix', greatly appreciated.
But before I remembered Mark's suggestion, I went looking for an answer
and found that there is a bug in KDE4.6.0 and which, as implied, has
been fixed in KDE 4.6.1. Which is quite nice to know....if you only one
knew how to upgrade your current KDE 4.6.0 to 4.6.1 (let alone to
4.6.2!) to get rid of just one (presumably) small bug to make vlc work.
As I have forgotten over time the mystical incantations required to
manipulate the Repositories info in (?)YaST to be able to upgrade this
current release of 11.4 with KDE 4.6.0 to KDE 4.6.1, would some kind
person, using plain, simple English, please, if it is not too much
trouble, tell me what I should do to add whatever necessary repos (NO
runes and in abbreviated form please!-please) to my installation so as
to be able to upgrade to KDE 4.6.1?
And as it is, in my time zone, Good Friday, A Happy Easter to everybody.
