Having trouble installing with YUM


Hello all,

I was trying to install mplayer with YUM since the RPM failed to install because of dependencies. So when I tried to install with YUM it gave me the same problems....DEPENDENCIES!

My question is this:

Isn't YUM supposed to resolve dependencies for you?

I finally found an RPM that installed and now I am running mplayer without a problem (great media player btw). But the problem with YUM still bugs me...why did it give me that dependencies error if YUM is supposed to download those for you?

Any help would be great, thanks

depends what the dependencies are.. some more info would have been helpful. sounds like you just found a non-standard rpm from somewhere and tried to install it with an incompatible set of yum repos. you should add repos like livna, atrpms and dag, and just run "yum install mplayer" and let it do the rest.

Sorry for the lack of information...I figuerd since I got it installed I didn't need specifics.

Anywhoo. I poked around and found that I didn't have livna repos (should've checkd that first huh). I installed it from the website (http://rpm.livna.org/). If I have any other problems I'll be sure to ask. Thanks for the info!
