    flatline, WHY install apt-get on SuSE?? SuSE has YaST that allows using of http/ftp mirrors to install stuff.

    I found (on gentoo, but will be the same for other distro's) that it's the Win32 Codecs that are needed to play wma/wmv files.

    If YaST doesn't have the win32codecs package have a search on rpmfind or [uel=http://rpm.pbone.net]pbone[/url] for it, they are easy to find.

    Because there are some things that are available via apt repositories that are a bit harder to do via YaST. If the mirrors with those packages don't have YaST-specific files to define the list, YaST can't use them.
    There are two major products that come out of Berkeley: LSD and UNIX. We don't believe this to be a coincidence.
