Hacking OpenSUSE

“When you’re done installing OpenSUSE 10.0, your desktop system is not
complete. You still need support for Java programs, MP3 audio files,
and browser plugins for Macromedia Flash, Adobe Acrobat, RealPlayer,
and Windows Media Video. You may also want to add support for playing
DVD videos on your computer. Here’s how to effectively make the open
source version of OpenSUSE 10.0 into SUSE Linux 10.0.”

Jem Matzan has written up a very very nice article on how to add the different plugins and codecs to SUSE Linux OSS 10.0, which enables support for Java programs, MP3 audio files, and browser plugins for Macromedia Flash, Adobe Acrobat, RealPlayer, and Windows Media Video playback.

If you’re new to Linux, or just have been taring your hair out while trying to get those freaking Windows Media Video files to play, you should definitely check this little article out.

Jem has made his brilliant article available under a Creative Commons license, which I strongly applaud and encourage anyone else to do. Since allows people to redistribute his article, I’ve added it into the “Articles” section of my blog, in case this is just what you needed, but I REALLY wanna stress that I did not write it, I simply mirrored it for your convenience.
