Running "urpmi mplayer"
"Everything is already installed" message appears

sorry if it sounds a dumb question, where do i need to go if it is "already installed".

(Running KDE 3.1.3 if it helps)

You have already installed MPlayer. If you wish to uninstall so as to install this particular rpm then run "urpme mplayer" to uninstall and then "urpmi /home/lock/Documents/downloads/mplayer/mplayer-0.91-1.athlon.rpm" should work although you may need to run the last command twice (depends on whether it has to install dependencies).

thanks for your help


I think - mplayer RPM, gui and skins are installed according to the following:

I cant find a shell script tho


installing /var/cache/urpmi/rpms/mplayer-0.91-4mdk.i586.rpm
Preparing... ##################################################
1:mplayer ##################################################
[root@localhost root]# urpmi mplayer-gui
To satisfy dependencies, the following packages are going to be installed (5 MB):
mplayer-gui-0.91-4mdk.i586
mplayer-skins-1.3-7mdk.noarch
Is this OK? (Y/n) Y

installing /var/cache/urpmi/rpms/mplayer-gui-0.91-4mdk.i586.rpm /var/cache/urpmi/rpms/mplayer-skins-1.3-7mdk.noarch.rpm
Preparing... ##################################################
1:mplayer-skins ##################################################
2:mplayer-gui ##################################################
