1) uninstall the SuSE xine-lib and xine-ui if they were installed already
2) download compile and install libdvdcss if you want to play commercial dvd's
3) download compile and install xine-lib (
4) (re)install xine-ui from the SuSE DVD

For compilation I used:
./configure --libdir=/usr/lib64
su <password>
