vlc dependencies missing


running on a fresh install of FC5 (dual boot with winXP)

i downloaded the rpm for vlc from freshrpms.net then when it was resolving the dependencies it apparently didnt, and gave this message:

Missing Dependency: liba52.so.0 is needed by package videolan-client
Missing Dependency: libvcdinfo.so.0 is needed by package videolan-client
Missing Dependency: libmp3lame.so.0 is needed by package videolan-client
Missing Dependency: libfaac.so.0 is needed by package videolan-client
Missing Dependency: libmpeg2.so.0 is needed by package videolan-client
Missing Dependency: libmad.so.0 is needed by package videolan-client
Missing Dependency: libfaad.so.0 is needed by package videolan-client
Missing Dependency: libopendaap.so.0 is needed by package videolan-client
Missing Dependency: libdvbpsi.so.4 is needed by package videolan-client
Missing Dependency: libdvdnav.so.4 is needed by package videolan-client
Missing Dependency: libdvdread.so.3 is needed by package videolan-client

i havent used linux in a long time, and i seem to remember adding an address for it to look for dependencies, or something.

EDIT: i remembered, called a repositary or something, and that some were incompatible with others, so which is the best to use?

any help would be appreciated.

Adding VLC

Quick question;

Did you just download the videolan-client rpm from freshrpms?

If so, it won't work by itsself (Which I guess is why you are posting here :-)

If you browse to http://ayo.freshrpms.net/ you will see a section about yum, and under that Fedora Core 5.

Install the recommended package .When I last looked it was

freshrpms-release-1.1-1.fc.noarch.rpm

Then do a

yum update

Then a

yum install videolan-client

This should be all you need.

Regards

Richard

You can use pup, although I prefer yum. It gives you better quality information as to whats going on.

To run it, go to a command prompt, su to root, and then run the command 'yum update'.

Too easy!
