Hi,
on http://www.opensuse.org/Restricted_Formats is written:

"However, if you would like to play MP3s on SUSE, you can install a Multimedia Pack from the YaST Online Update Servers."

Is this still valid for 10.0? On the opensuse@-list I just read:

"One is to install Realplayer and the helix-plugins for
amarok and gstreamer. Another one is to install libmad and mad, or just
everything from packman, what plays multimedia."

Links to external repositories are not allowed, so would it be o.k. to change the text to:

"However, if you would like to play MP3s on SUSE, you can install Realplayer and the helix-plugins for amarok and gstreamer. Another possibility would be to use external software repositories as long as you comply with your local laws. They are able to provide you with unrestricted 'mad' and 'libmad' packages, which allow MP3-playback."


As I have not upgraded to 10.0 yet, I can't check it myself, but which additional yast-source (official SUSE ones) must I add to get Realplayer and the helix-plugins, if I start with the OSS- or Eval-version? This should then also be noted on the above page with a link to the relevant section in the installation doc.

Ciao
Siegbert
