I installed RHEL 5. I tried to install vlc player.
but due to depedendencies of library caused to failure.
can any1 tell me how to install vlc or any other player on rhel5 with their links and where to get libraries required?

Red Hat doesn't have VLC or the libraries needed. You can add the
rpmforge repository which does have VLC and more. This command will
set up the repo:

rpm -Uhv`uname -i`/rpmforge/RPMS/rpmforge-release-0.5.1-1.el5.rf.`uname -i`.rpm
Then this will install VLC:

yum install vlc

A valid URL for Rpmforge is


But how about the "RealPlayerGold" : Everything is included, "no dependencies" :
EL 5 version

# rpm -Uvh --nodeps RealPlayer11GOLD.rpm
Reason for --nodeps : Will ask for a non existing package 'lsb'.

What I would suggest is install wine and run winduhs binary. Works for me.
