Re: [suse-amd64] The included Xine version (SuSE 9.2 AMD64)

For me Xine works fine with 9.2. Ok, after I have compiled and installed a few
extra packages :)
I have compiled:
lame-3.96 from a tarball
lipffmpeg-0.4.8 also from a tarball
libdts-0.0.2 from source
libdvdcss-1.2.8 from tarball
and only xine-lib-1.rc5 guess a newer one also works

It was a little complicated to find out the parameters for configure (glib,
gtk, qt.....) but with a little bit of trial and error it should be possible
to figure them out. I don't have them in my mind. You have also to install a
few devel-rpms from the SuSE DVD.

I don't have any packing experience. To manage my own rpms I use checkinstall
(I know, not very good, but for me it works). But feel free to ask, if you
can't figure out parameters.
