    Suse

    Hey, does anybody think suse pro would be worth purchasing for my laptop. Does it already come with xine support so i can read dvd's and stuff, and get my pcmcia linksys card working?


    Thanks
    Anthony

    Re:Suse

    According to this link, xine is included. Considering how thorough the install program was for 8.1, I would have to say that everything should be just fine if you buy 8.2. I would be very surprised if it didn't set everything up for you so that you could view dvd's "out of the box".

    Cheers

    I'm running 8.2 and I couldn't be happier. Setting things up was ridiculously easy. And yes, playing dvds works out of the box.

    It definitely has mpeg libs and I'm sure it supports divx (though that is only a hunch, an educated guess of sorts). As for should you or shouldn't you buy suse pro? That is a decision that only you can make. If it's the right price for your budget, then I say you should go for it. If it's not, well, then you might find the personal version more to your liking. I don't know.

    Cheers

    Re:Suse

    I just installed mplayer on SuSE 8.2. I ended up compiling it myself because the included version is compiled without support for most divx-ish codecs. For legal issues, so they say. There are pre-compiled rpms available on the net that don't have that restriction. But compiling it really isn't a big deal.

    I'll walk you trough if you run into trouble.

    why not try the free ftp install to see if you like it?
