    Consider improving your software package management

    When you finally get sick of dependency hell, you should give serious thought to:
    a. updating your YaST repository list so to semi-automate your dowloads/dependency fixes for 3rd party rpms, OR
    b. installing APT/APT4RPM, updating its repository list so to semi-automate your dowloads/dependency fixes for 3rd party rpms, OR
    c. installing 3rd party Smart Package manager, and using it to automatically sort out your dependencies.

    Mind you, if you keep doing this the manual way (one rpm at a time), you WILL learn a lot more, ... assuming of course you like the "Yul Brenner" hairless look.

    Good luck in your multimedia updates.

    Thanks for telling me how to do all this.

    You forgot:
    Use Gentoo(c)(R)tm instead.
