Playing DVD in OpenSUSE 10.1

The default xine and xine-lib packages provided by SUSE 10.1 can't be used to play DVD. So you need to uninstall them and install the following packages :

  • libxine1-1.1.2cvs-060514.i586.rpm
  • xine-ui-0.99.4cvs-051003.i586.rpm
  • libdvdcss2-1.2.9-1.i386.rpm
  • w32codec-0.52-1.i386.rpm
You can find those packages at
