In order to install VLC on a SUSE Linux/openSUSE, you have several options (besides downloading and installing the RPMs manually).
Installing VLC on openSUSE 10.3
Alternative Method Of Installing is Given Below :
Download VLC media player for SUSE Linux using YaST
Add VideoLAN’s repository
First, add a new repository (installation source) in YaST (YaST2 -> Software -> Installation Sources)
Add the following Repository:
Type: HTTP / Servername: download.videolan.org / Directory: /pub/videolan/vlc/SuSE/<SUSE Version>
Replace <SUSE Version> in the Directory above with your installed SuSE Version. Supported at this time are :
10.0 10.1 10.2 10.3
Confirm the addition.
The repository is signed with a GPG Key (gpg key C8DA93D2 fingerprint BC8D 780D E330 8581 B2E0 7085 33DE 8FB7 C8DA 93D2). Accept this key in YaST and it will warn you in case there is something suspect with the repository.
Accept everything by clicking Finish.
Setting Up The Repositories
The YAST repositories that need to be enabled are Packman and VideoLan. To enable the repositories
- Run YAST (from Computer -> Control Center->Yast)
- Go to Software -> Community Repositories
- Select Packman and VideoLan by placing a tick in the check box beside their names and click finish
- YAST will then automatically setup the repositories for you. During the setup process, you will be asked if you want YAST to import the gpg keys for the repositories you chose and you need to select “yes”.
Go to Yast->software->Software Management and enter VLC in the searchbox and search for it. Select it and click Accept to install it with all it’s dependencies. This might require the SUSE CD or DVD.
If you want VLC’s Mozilla Plugin, you have to select the vlc-mozillaplugin manually. It does not get installed by dependencies.
You’re done with the installation. Have a lot of Fun.
