what are all these files i am missing ?
I tried to do an up2date to see if the missing files woudl be installed, but it crashed half way though (after downloading all updates and while it started the installation).
Now that i try to relaunch the up2date, it give me all kinds of dependency errors, so i wil l haveto istall the updates one by one.

ayways thats a whole different issue.
thanks,
e.

You are using FC4 - the FC3 rpms are unlikely to work. You have different libraries and different base packages and everything.

You will have to obtain FC4 binary rpms, install via yum ...

yum install vlc (I think) then get the essential codecs package from mplayer hq.

Bearing in mind I've not done this myself ... I got the idea off the fedora 4 tips site - a throwaway comment that VLC can be installed via yum but no followup or clarification. Looking further:
http://agcentral.org/help/tutorial/a...l-fc4/updating
https://www.redhat.com/archives/fedo.../msg05003.html
http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...=402198&page=2

hmmm... you need to have the livna and/or atrpms repo enabled.
use the yum.conf file from www.fedorafaq.org - they include livna. Or use the yumex repository tool.

VLC - the Videolan stand-alone media player:

* The VideoLAN Client (VLC) is a highly portable multimedia player for various audio and video formats (MPEG-1, MPEG-2, MPEG-4, DivX, mp3, ogg, ...) as well as DVDs, VCDs, and various streaming protocols. The Dries repository has a VLC rpm for FC4. To install VLC make sure that the Dries repository is configured in yum as described above. Open a terminal. Type:

Hit enter. Type your root password. Hit enter. Type:

yum -y install videolan-client

Hit enter. Wait for the installation to complete. Close the terminal. VLC will be available in "Applications" > "Sound & Video" as "VideoLAN Client".
