Watching DVDs on SUSE Linux.

What is the similarity between and elephant and a grape? They’re both purple except for the elephant.

I have received many requests for information on how to play DVDs on SUSE Linux. It’s actually quite simple.

Uninstall whatever version of xine that you have installed.

Add Packman as in installation source.

Install the xine package from Packman (you may want to disable all other install sources, just to make sure it comes from Packman for sure).

Install the libdvdcss package, also.

Poof, you’re done (at least that’s what worked for me).

So, hop on Netflix, sign up for your account, and watch DVDs on your SUSE box.
