[packman] A serious problem with your files concerning Xine and openSUSE 11.3

Dear Packman,

I currently am beginning serious use of openSUSE 11.3 and Gnome.  One of my favourite media viewers 
is Xine, however the "one-click" installation version of openSUSE 11.3 on your site would not 
install. It told me that for both libxine and xine-ui, that I was running the wrong version of 
openSUSE........I tested it on several occasions while running a test system of openSUSE 11.3 and 
each time was told that I was running the wrong version of openSUSE 11.3.

Today, I discovered the reason..   Instead of trying to install the "ymp" one-click file, I 
downloaded it instead, and then opened it with the text editor "geddit".

I found that about 5 lines into the file, it stated that the system involved was openSUSE 11.2, not 
11.3...........So, using geddit, I edited the ymp file and changed and saved it to 11.3.    I am 
delighted to be able to tell you that the ymp file then installed beautifully.

Would you please take steps to correct this error. At the moment, the one-click files will NOT work 
for openSUSE 11.3 unless the files are edited as I mentioned above.

Kind regards

Dr Tony Young
