Suse 10.0 MP3 Support

Ok, so Novell in their infinite wisdom decided to remove MP3 support from SuSE around v10.0. It’s a bit hard to find concrete information on how to get some sort of mp3 support in SuSE, so here it is:

  1. Install XMMS
  2. Download the XMMS mpg123 rpm from this page.
  3. Install it:

    #rpm -ivh xmms-mpg123-1.2.7-13.i386.rpm Preparing… ########################################### [100%] 1:xmms-mpg123 ########################################### [100%]

  4. Run XMMS and enjoy!

I don’t know how to get mp3 working in a lot of the other programs, I’ll try and work that out later. There’s a short article here in DesktopLinux.com on Hacking OpenSuSE - getting mp3 and dvd support in SuSE.
