  • kde/mplayerthumbs-1.2-i486-1.txz
    This plugin for KDE uses MPlayer to provide video thumbnailing support for
    Dolphin and Konqueror.
    l/libxml2-2.7.3-i486-3.txz: Edited the install script to remove any existing
    libxml2 .pyc files to insure the new .py files will be used.

    x/scim-1.4.9-i486-2.txz: Reduce the noise from the install script.
    x/scim-bridge-0.4.16-i486-2.txz: Reduce the noise from the install script, and

  • xap/MPlayer-r29301-i486-1.txz
    DeCSS support (binary or source), and with patent-encumbered encoders
    disabled, but it's still very capable of media playback.
