Package Description License wanted by remark
MPlayer Other very good media player GPL users MPlayer is a movie player which runs on many systems (see the documentation). It plays most MPEG/VOB, AVI, Ogg/OGM, VIVO, ASF/WMA/WMV, QT/MOV/MP4, RealMedia, Matroska, NUT, NuppelVideo, FLI, YUV4MPEG, FILM, RoQ, PVA files, supported by many native, XAnim, and Win32 DLL codecs. You can watch VideoCD, SVCD, DVD, 3ivx, DivX 3/4/5 and even WMV movies.

And it uses patented code all over the place so you would have to cripple it. That the MPlayer developers dont like. - Henne

Racer racing-game Please see link Gamers A graphically very nice game. Please see for further licensing-information

Racer has been dropped after SUSE 9.1. Sources for current versions are no longer available and since we needed to adjust them to our needs ... FMOD license is problematic as well. (sndirsch)

Vegastrike Similar to Privateer GPL Gamers Marvellous graphics effects, just take a look at screenshots.

Package has been dropped after 8.0 simply because of its huge size. (sndirsch)

Would it be possible to create a meta-package (like MS fonts) which downloads and installs the (big) data files when you install the game?

Eterm Color terminal emulator GPL A lot of people, users Eterm used to be in SUSE and was removed recently. I'd love to see it back in SUSE. It's a great terminal emulator.

It was dropped because the maintainer does not maintain it anymore, and it has no UTF-8 support which is required in modern times. --Msmeissn

Mythtv Mythtv is a PVR project with many features. GPL users There are also many plugins available. There is already a third party apt repository. (

same as for MPlayer or xine. Most of the media handling in mythtv is patented so we can ship it only crippled and then its no use anymore - Henne

XBill Little people running around the screen are trying to infect your computers, you must kill them Unknown Gamers Old and very simple game but very addictive.

xbill has been dropped after SUSE 7.3 by intention. Guess why ... (sndirsch)

jed-0.99.16-32.src.rpm (Build Date: Mon Mar 17 15:01:58 2003)

nedit Text Editor with syntax highlighting. GPL programmers, casual users Keystrokes like notepad, but generally quite usable. Tabbed windows, good client mode.

OpenDX 3D scientific visualization software GPL Scientists Students OpenDX is a package for visualization of 3D data.

ngrep Sniffer more free than GPL Network Admins smart, text based, very useful
rfc ASCII versions of RFCs FSR, Other License(s) [from SUSE 9.2 package] programmers, sysadmins It's damn convenient to have RFCs just there, or grep them, without needing to go through Web search interfaces. Please put it back in. - Joachim
Webmin Webmin/Usermin/Virtualmin Browser-based Administration Suite for unixoid systems BSD/GPL Users who dislike YaST2 or want to configure more stuff Main Website (english).

Why was this dropped? It's awesome. The only complaint I have heard about it is it being insecure, but if that's the case, just put a warning label on it that people should only do it over SSH. mikedep333

It needs to be accessed over the web... Thats why its called "webmin". And it configurations is not aligned with YaST and SUSE methods of sysconfig handling last time we checked. -Msmeissn

ZSnes SNES/Super Famicom emulator for x86 computers GPL finrold ZSNES supports mode 7, sound, Super FX, and a lot more.

whats wrong with snes9x? - Henne

Was removed from 8.1-8.2, not sure why. Perhaps snes9x was seen as enough? --VF 05:44, 17 February 2006 (UTC)

NiL Liero Clone  ? Tiago Gasiba The basic game play is to eliminate or to get eliminated. :)

NiL has been dropped for (open)SUSE 10.0. According to our maintainer our version was quite outdated and there would not exist any usable new release. (sndirsch)
