    Download the rpm version of vlc from Packman. If you look at the bottom of the page of the URL that I provided, it also lists the dependencies:
    http://packman.links2linux.org/?action=377

    So in addition to downloading vlc, also download a52dec, libdvbpsi4, libmpcdec, alsa, and speex. Install the Packman version of those dependency packages before you install vlc.

    You need to polish your web searching techniques. I believe all of these can be found by searching either Packman, or rpm.pbone, or even google.

    For example, packman gives instructions on how to build libdvdcss2. And I gave you the URL for packman in one of my previous posts!
    http://packman.links2linux.org/?action=122
    Be certain to select your SuSE version!

    libmpeg2 you can find here (also on Packman):
    http://packman.links2linux.org/?action=381
    Again, be certain to select your suse version.

    db1 - Berkeley DB database library Version 1.85 comes with the retail SuSE-10.0 CD/DVD. Just open up YaST and look for it. If you can't find it on your SuSE .... (well know you know why some of us fork out the extra $$ to buy the retail ... ) then go get it on http://rpm.pbone.net

    xosd - X On-Screen Display library also comes with the retail SuSE CD/DVD. Did you even try to look for it on SuSE?? Again, just open up YaST and look for it. The same comment re: rpm.pbone.net applies.

    Hey, dont' let linux intimidate you. Go out there and look for the packages!

    Now if you think I have this memorized - your WRONG. I had to spend a few minutes to search for these packages. You can do the same. ....
