The folks at PCTech 101 dropped us a line last night, indicating they have put together a nice guide for those Linux enthusiasts out there. This one really applies here at CD Freaks, as it deals with DVD playback. SUSE is a VERY polished distribution of Linux and you might have fun trying it out, even if you are a die hard Windows user.
We have posted an article on our website that gives step by step instructions on how to enable DVD Playback on SUSE Linux. It is complete with all the necessary files that you may need to download if you do not already have them. In addition, we would like to make you aware that we have recently joined the Fedora Free Media Program, and have Fedora Case Badges available.
Some people are having a bit of trouble getting DVD Playback to work in SUSE 10.1. Below is a tutorial that should be of some help. Although it may look like a lot of steps, everything should only take you about 10-15 minutes.
Well, it took me longer to get DVDs playing on Media
Center! 😉 The guide is really concise and all the links are laid out nicely for a quick download. If you have SUSE 10.1 and you want to try watching some DVD video, then why not give it a try? If you don’t have it yet and want to see what this Linux version has to offer, you can pick up a CD or DVD at PCTech very cheaply. Depending on your needs, you can purchase an installation DVD for as little as 12 bucks!
