What's new in openSUSE 11.0
The first SUSE Linux release – an open source Linux distribution developed entirely by a company known as SUSE – arrived in 1994.
In 2005, Novell acquired SUSE and later announced plans to open up the development process to community involvement.
SUSE Linux 10.0 was released in October 2005 and was the first SUSE release to have public beta testing. Version 10.3, now named openSUSE, was released in October 2007.

Multimedia Pack Portable For OpenSuse 11I have created a Multimedia Pack portable for Open Suse, the included programs and codecs are:
2) mplayer, mplayer plugin
4) k3b, k3b-codecs
you can install any of the above without internet, they include all the dependencies, just unzip the both files into a folder named MMP2008 and create a repository from that folder as a simple rpm folder in yast, then make a search in the yast installer with the name of the program and check it to install it, this is very important if you don`t have internet at home, and besides, by default Open Suse doesn`t include several codecs due to license matters, most of the rpm files comes from the packman repo.
I created a blog about the MMP 2008 where you can download the pack:
