apt-get cannot find packages in FC2


I installed Fedora Core 2. Ran yum update. Installed apt-get from RPM. Ran apt-get update. Everything installed without error. When I run:

apt-get install synaptic

or

apt-get install mplayer*

all I get is "package cannot be found."

I have done this before in Fedora Core 1 so what is going on?

Thanks in advance!

almost the solution

for anyone else having problems, just run:

apt-get mirror-select

and this will set up the sources.

still not finding mplayer

Okay, I have successfully set up my sources using:

apt-get mirror-select

then running:

apt-get update

but in Fedora Core 2 Mplayer is not listed at all (NOTE: I am using synaptic to view available packages). I have selected all mirrors and still no Mplayer.

I have tried to manually install Mplayer before with a little success but when I did it using apt-get it was a breeze and it was perfect (Redhat 9 and Fedora Core 1). Thanks for any suggestions.

Copy this file to /etc/apt/sources.list.d/ and uncomment URLs appropriate for your distro (one for "all" rpms and one for "fc2" rpms). Use the closest mirror. Then do apt-get update and you'll be able to install latest official MPlayer RPMs.
