I ran immediately after
installation, and so had and have the requisite repos enabled. I became
of seeing the subject message every time K3B opened. I tried in YaST2 to
the K3B MAD Mp3 decoder it complained about not having and could not figure
out which package contained it. So I Googled, and found I asked this same
question last July. Joe Morris answered k3b-codecs. Anyone know why the ymp
did not install k3b-codecs, or why K3B doesn't come right out and name the
missing package?

Cannot answer your last question, but you also need to install

I'm going to take guess and say the reason why libxine1-codecs was installed
before I started this thread is that running codecs-kde.ymp caused it to be
installed. I suppose a good enough answer to question 1 above would confirm

The packman versions of all things multimedia are usually better so what
I do is zypper dup -r Packman (or whatever your packman repo is called)
for working multimedia. It doesn't install what you don't have of course
but it sorts out what is installed.

I start with the ymp precisely to get the additional repos and missing bits
installed, after which I let zypper up figure out the upgrading. In the case
of libxine1-codecs, doing both is obviously inadequate. Is the place to file bugs about ymp problems? If not, where is?
