or whle installing xine-lib cofigure that as

./configure --prefix=/usr

then run
make
and
make install

I followed the second one you mentioned about doing it while I am installing it, and totem still will not play my DVDs or my Mpeg video files.

hi

i do no think that u can do with that

see what u get for

rpm --help|grep prefix

also uninstall totem rpm and then give it a try again

also if u have totem on that cd then u might be having the dependent lib rpm with it

regards

In the directory ld.so.conf.d there is only one file called qt-i386.conf, do I place /usr/local/lib in that or create a new file?

/etc/ld.so.conf ( not ld.so.conf.d). also, where did you get totem from? if you installed a binary package of totem it may not use xine but gstreamer instead ( it's a compile time option on which one to use).

Well I added /usr/local/lib and it didn't work. I got totem from the fedora CD, I chose to install it when I installed fedora. And on the CD it is an rpm.

does totem work for local files? if totem is working, it was probably configured to use gstreamer and not xine. do you have gxine installed? or xine_ui?

What do you mean by local files? Are they media files of some kind? And no I do not have another frontend installed but maybe I should try one, I just got tied up trying to get totem working I didn't think of getting another frontend, thats a good idea. I'll try xine_ui.

Well I installed xine_ui and it does not appear in the sound and video menu, so where do I find it so I can use it?
