I am gonna close your other topic and link it here for starters.

Ok, yes, you need a GCC compiler if you're going to do pretty much anything in linux. In order for me to tell you how to install that I need to know what distro you're running. So tell me that and I will help you out.

For installing GCC,
open up terminal and then log in as root using
CODE
su

then open yast using
CODE
yast2 sw_single&

then search for the package gcc and install it..this should install gcc and required dependancies.. smile.gif

for adding dvd support check this article

for playing DVDs you need to install libdvdcss rpm..here is the link
Then kaffeine should be able to play dvds once the above rpm is installed..
If you want to play mp3's in amarok you have to install amarok-xine package..realplayer should be able to play mp3's without any other library..
