I've been having problems installing and using MPlayer on my machine, which runs on RedHat 7.2. Do any of you know how I could rectify this problem? Or, if not, the location of another video player for Linux? Any help you could give would be much appreciated.
warning: mplayer-common-1.0pre3-1.i386.rpm: V3 DSA signature: NOKEY, key ID 28a2 6067
warning: only V3 signatures can be verified, skipping V4 signature
error: Failed dependencies:
libmp3lame.so.0 is needed by mplayer-gui-1.0pre3-1
umm, didnt the error message say u have to get libmp3lame? whats lrzsz? and u dont download rpm's with "src" in it. those are not what ur looking for. look for the corresponding ones without ".src". save the file wherever u want, and as root, "rpm -ivh <filename>".
apt is a tool that would have gotten all the packages that are needed to install something on-the-fly. in this case, it would have downloaded and installed libmp3lame for you without a bother. search for "apt" in these forums - lot has been said bout it already.
