Downloading packages for redhat


Hi,

I am trying to download an application to be able to manage mp3 music files and watch dvd. I cam across Kaffeine.
I am using Linux Red Hat 9.

1. Do you recommend Kaffeine or would MPlayer work too?
2. I found a Kaffeine rpm file for Red Hat 9. But when I tried to install it gave me error messages that I did not have dependent installations. (xine, qt and more).
Is there a particular site where I can find all the dependent rpm files for red hat 9?
Does it matter whether they are specifically for red hat 9 or can I use rpms for any linux distribution?

Thanks.

Why RH9 instead of Fedora Core 5?
And yes you can use yum or apt therefor visit http://dag.wieers.com and get known with Repos and the usage of yum and apt.
Cause either yum or apt will solve your dependencies problems.
Then you'll only have to perform
Code:
yum -y install xmms*
and everything for mp3 will be installed including the xmms AudioPlayer.
The same with
Code:
yum -y install xine*
You also can have a GUI for this therefor
Code:
yum install yumex
regards

Installing Yum did not work bit Apt did.
The site you mentioned was very helpful.
Thanks for your help.
