Ups, true.

Up to where I know the version from openSUSE is 100% functional. With a
$ rm /usr/share/doc/packages/xine/README.SuSE
it plays DVDs just fine.
It just tries to detect if the installed xine version is able to play
DVDs. The detection is based in the existence of
/usr/share/doc/packages/xine/README.SuSE and /usr/share/xine/mad.
It's already reported to openSUSE that no actual package provides
"/usr/share/xine/mad", but also the existence of
/usr/share/doc/packages/xine/README.SuSE in the Packman package
doesn't makes too much sense.

The thing is if the README.SuSE file is removed from the packman
package openSUSE's Kaffeine will work. When I thought the file was in
libxine1-codecs it made a lot of sense to just remove it since its
contents are also wrong... being in libxine1, one could argue that
it's better to mantain it similar to the openSUSE version.
So, it's just that. Do how you think is better... the real problem is
in the openSUSE package anyway.
