im running suse 10.1

i need the xvid codec installed to run certain videos...i followed the instructions profided with the codec and everything went smoothly till the end..im not sure if this step is important but the xvid videos didnt work...im not too sure what it means by the runtime linker knowing about the xvid core...the instructions state:

Voila, xvidcore is installed on your system, make sure your runtime
linker knows about the xvidcore prefix lib dir where it is
installed. And make also sure that it generates a symlink to its
SONAME. In case it would do not take care of the symlink itself:
# cd ${prefix}/lib
# ls libxvidcore.so.*
ls should list at least one libxvidcore.so.MAJOR.MINOR file
# ln -s libxvidcore.so.MAJOR.MINOR libxvidcore.so.MAJOR

You may also add a .so link to .so.MAJOR, so that applications linked
against .so are in fact linked to .so.MAJOR and thus ensures better
binary compatibility as we take care not changing the MAJOR number
until there is an incompatible ABI change.
# ln -s libxvidcore.so.MAJOR libxvidcore.so

Here is a list of packages you should look for in Yast. Install them, and see if you still have trouble.

a52dec
divx
divx4linux
faac
faad2
kdemultimedia3-arts-mad
libiec61883
libmpeg3
mad
vlc
xvid
xvid4conf
libxine <- This one is especially important

xvid may be working under mplayer and the like, but not xine. Try 'mplayer filename.avi'. Xine isn't my favorite video playing software... xD
