Are you sure, you are using is the Packman Repository for SUSE 9.2?

Thrat's wrong, the Packman package Video-DVDrip doesn't require 
perl-Gtk2, it depends on perl-Gtk-Perl (which is part of the SUSE DVD). 
The new package dvdrip requires perl-Gtk2, and that's the reason, why 
there are only SUSE >= 9.3 packages.

> lxdvdrip requires pvm

pvm-3.4.4-611.1.i586.rpm is part of the SUSE 9.2 DVD and can be also 
found on the SUSE-Mirrors, e.g.

> mpd requires libshout

This seems to be realy a bug, libshout is only available for SUSE >= 
9.3. Konstantin, Toni, could you take a look on it, please?

> vlc requires slang-devel and ffmpeg0-devel

slang-devel is part of the DVD, I can't find a ffmpeg0-devel dependency, 
I can only see libffmpeg0 (>= 0.4.9), and that's available on our site.

> of course, vlc-mozilla-plugin requires vlc

That's clear, isn't it?

> xml-tv requires perl-HTML-Tree

perl-HTML-Tree-3.18-55.i586.rpm is part of the DVD.

That should be removed. We shouldn't have any dependency on libdvdcss 
and there is no program that doesn't work without libdvdcss. Detlef, 
whats going on there?
We are not allowed to provide the libdvdcss, for more infos, take a 
lookt at http://packman.links2linux.de/package/libdvdcss2
