11.2 64 bit and mp3

September 12th, 2009 by

Now that 11.2 gets closer and closer to the rc status being able to play mp3 becomes important in order to make the testing experience even nicer.

Here is my workaround to get that mp3 working in amarok. I do not know about the dvd’s as the only one that I own is to boring to use it for testing purposes

wget http://download.opensuse.org/distribution/11.1/repo/oss/suse/x86_64/libcdio7-0.80-5.30.x86_64.rpm
zypper in file:<Path-to>libcdio7-0.80-5.30.x86_64.rpm
wget http://download.opensuse.org/distribution/11.1/repo/oss/suse/x86_64/libiso9660-5-0.80-5.30.x86_64.rpm
zypper in file:<Path-to>libiso9660-5-0.80-5.30.x86_64.rpm
wget http://download.opensuse.org/distribution/11.1/repo/oss/suse/x86_64/libMagickCore1-6.4.3.6-5.3.x86_64.rpm
zypper in file:<Path-to>libMagickCore1-6.4.3.6-5.3.x86_64.rpm
wget http://download.opensuse.org/distribution/11.1/repo/oss/suse/x86_64/libMagickWand1-6.4.3.6-5.3.x86_64.rpm
zypper in file:<Path-to>libMagickWand1-6.4.3.6-5.3.x86_64.rpm
zypper in libxine1-codecs

So as you can see I just use the missing libs from 11.1.Of course I assumed that you added the 11.1 packman to your repos already.

    A more professional approach would be to temporarily enable the repo using a lesser priority.

    And also you could just use ‘zypper in ./file.rpm’ to ease the process.

    i found a packman repo for openSUSE factory at this address: http://packman.unixheads.com/suse/factory/

    don’t know if all packman mirrors have been updated, but assume so. using this factory repo i was able to install the needed gstreamer add-ons to get mp3 working via this backend.

    couldn’t find the fluendo one, but that’s available from the fluendo website (http://www.fluendo.com/shop/codecs/) for free. (i think there’s some licensing trouble going on with fluendo, so it’s not included in FOSS repos anymore.)
