You go to the MPLayer website, download it, and read the instructions.

Since you're using RHEL, you can also call RedHat support, since you're paying for it with your RHEL subscription, and see if it's in the online repositories.

Unhappy

I have downloaded the Mplayer package and extracted it in the folder.
and after that I run the following command:
#cd MPlayer-1.0rc4.tar.gz
#./configure
and after this gives failure messages.
And thus I am unable to execute next commands:
#make
#make install

Installing mplayer : # yum install mplayer

Mplayer is in the rpmfusion.repo http://rpmfusion.org/Configuration

Building mplayer : First please do # yum install <the-40-prerequisites>

to build the source on rhel5.4 ( current is 5.6 ) you need to do a LOT more than "./configure"
there are about 40 things that you would need to ALSO build from source AND you MUST have access to RHN to install needed software ( a paid for license)
-- do you have a week ???? to build things ???


use "yum" it is DESIGNED to install allready built -- precompiled-- software from the RHN repo and from rpmfusion AND in rpmforge repos


and read the mplayer web site
http://www.mplayerhq.hu/design7/proj...icial_packages

also seeing as RHEL is NOT free and if you need to keep your install 100% compatable with the red hat downstream
USE ( and set up and CONFIGURE the "yum-protectbase" and "yum-priorities" plugins
ask your paid for red hat tech support you bought with the REQUIRED paid for license ,you did buy.

Angry

Thanks for the help but I can't configure yum on the OS as it is running in VMware and when I try to configure it, it gives the "no space" error. I don't know what is the reason behind the error as I have given 30 GB for the VMware to install RED HAT 5.4.

if yum is telling you there is NO room in / then you will not be able to build or install anything UNTIL that is fixed first.

you did buy a license for red hat
ask your paid for support from red hat on installing it on VMware ( ask vmware also )

Is there a NEED for the older RHEL5.4 ( ie. a bit of PROPRIETARY software that MUST and ONLY will run on 5.4 ) and not the current in the 5 series RHEL5.6 .
or
the current red hat release RHEL 6.1


also BE WARNED

rhel /cent/sl are NOT the best operating systems to play videos on
it is VERY VERY easy to 100% F**? up the install if you do NOT use "yum- protectbase"

the repos that have mplayer on then are NOT compatible with RHN

It is a Linux OS : We do not download standard packages.
Packages are installed with the 'Package Manager' or with yum :

1) su ; 2) yum install mplayer : This will download mplayer and the 14
dependencies from rpmfusion, and install all 15 packages.

You have very little chance downloading the 14 libraries as rpms and getting
them fit together : Use yum !

Now if you actually told us WHAT "failure messages" you got, maybe we could help.

I take it you have NOT read any of the red hat documentation
like the install and users guides
https://access.redhat.com/knowledge/...erprise_Linux/

also for the older 5.4 you MUST have a paid for license
or install the current 5 series 5.6
or the current red hat release RHEL 6.1

and seeing as RHEWL is not free
ask the red hat support that you bought access to
http://www.redhat.com/support/


or DO NOT USE RED HAT


what is it you need to use the older rhel 5.4 for ????

If a average home desktop -- do not !!!!
For some PROPRIETARY must use piece of software that ONLY runs on the older 5.4
buy a license .
