In my last post, I detailed the process of getting Freevo installed on Ubuntu. It actually wasn’t too bad, unless you wanted your Multi-Media PC to respond to an IR remote. This post is a quick overview on how to install Freevo on an OpenSUSE box. The details are once again left out, since each step is much better explained from the pages found in a google search.
- Install openSUSE
- Add the OSS and NON-OSS repositories to the software sources
- Add the Packman, Guru, and NVIDIA (optional) repositories
- Open the Yast software install tool. Install Freevo, Lirc, Xine, Mplayer, and DVD packages
- Search the web on how to install libdvdcss on OpenSUSE and follow those directions
- Configure Freevo
- Configure NVIDIA card for TV-OUT
- Configure Xine to play to the correct audio source
- Set $LIRC_MODULE correctly in /etc/sysconfig/lirc
- Configure lirc for freevo
- Configure LIRC and Freevo to start on boot
