VLC installation on RH9
I downloaded the libraries the site recommends and extracted them to /vlc/Libraries. Then i go to /vlc and type the following:

[spacemonkey@linuxsys vlc]$ rpm -U *.rpm
warning: V3 DSA signature: NOKEY, key ID e42d547b
warning: package speex = 1.0.3-2.1 was already added, replacing with speex <= 1.1.5-1
error: Failed dependencies: is needed by libcddb-0.9.4-1 is needed by mozilla-1.6-2 is needed by vlc-0.7.2-1 is needed by vlc-0.7.2-1 is needed by is needed by

Any help?

go here, get and install apt

once it's installed, open a command line, su to root and type
apt-get update

when it's finished type
apt-get install synaptic

then, open synaptic (it should appear in the menus)

vlc should be in the multimedia section, if not, have a mooch about for apt-get repositries for redhat, it will be in one of them

synaptic will take care of all the dependencies and is a great way to update/upgrade your box

synaptic probs
I installed apt-get succesfully but whe i try to install synaptic i get this

[root@dhcppc0 trey]# apt-get -f install synaptic
Reading Package Lists... Done
Building Dependency Tree... Done
You might want to run `apt-get -f install' to correct these:
The following packages have unmet dependencies:
libcddb: Depends: but it is not installable
mozilla#37:1.6-2: Depends: but it is not installable
Depends: mozilla-nspr (= 37:1.6-2) but 37:1.4.2-0.9.0 is to be installed
Depends: mozilla-nss (= 37:1.6-2) but 37:1.4.2-0.9.0 is to be installed
E: Unmet dependencies. Try 'apt-get -f install' with no packages (or specify a solution)

i am running RH9 any help or suggestions would greatly be appreciated
