Here are some Suse9.2 goodies for you. These will allow you to play dvd's and avi (divx/XviD etc..) files. You need to remove xine-libs using yast before you start. Then its just the usual:
#rpm -U 'rpm_to_install.rpm'
running as root.
[EDIT] >> Have just had it pointed out to me that these rpm's are for x86 processors ONLY and will not work on a 64bit version. If you have a 64bit suse and want dvd+avi then pop along to the link at the bottom of this page for a more detailed guide and grab the correct rpm's for your system (i.e. not ending in ixx86.rpm) sorry for any confusion- but its a new thing for me 2! This guide is just a log of how I got it working on my home x86 system.
Come and get it! (20Meg zip for x86 systems) >> notes+windows codecs+libxine
As for dvd playback:
1) You need to get dvdcss from here (http://cambuca.ldhs.cetuc.puc-rio.br/xine/libdvdcss-1.2.8-2.network.i386.rpm)
2) Make sure that DMA is enabled for your DVD to stop jumpy playback. Replace the /dev/dvdrecorder with the name of your drive if its different
# hdparm -d1 /dev/dvdrecorder
You should now be good to go.
Here is the bumph from my konsole window when I installed them.
linux:/home/john # rpm -U '/home/john/Desktop/libdvdcss-1.2.8-2.network.i386.rpm'
linux:/home/john # hdparm -d1 /dev/dvdrecorder
setting using_dma to 1 (on)
using_dma = 1 (on)
linux:/home/john # rpm -U '/home/john/Desktop/libxine1-1_rc6a-0.pm.0.i686.rpm' '/home/john/Desktop/w32codec-all-20040916-0.pm.0.i386.rpm'

If you want a bit more info please visit http://cambuca.ldhs.cetuc.puc-rio.br/xine/ for a more detailed guide. This link should also help those people with a 64 bit install (according to the forums).
When will IE grow up??
