SUSE logo The Packman software archive is now offering a multimedia software package for SUSE Linux Enterprise 11 (SP1). As well as a range of media players, including VLC and MPlayer, it includes a number of codecs for proprietary formats. These include a Windows Media codec package and several GStreamer plug-ins which can be used by applications such as Totem, Banshee and Rhythmbox.

The following command executed as a user with 'root' privileges adds the repository:

zypper ar -r

So far, the Packman team has only carried out superficial testing on the repository. In the event of problems or missing dependencies, users are encouraged to post to the Packman mailing list. Registration is not required to post to the list.
