Is your RHEL license all paid up?

There's something funny with your freshrpms.repo file (see /etc/yum.d.repos or similar)
Does freshrpms.net even do RHEL packages - all I can find are Fedora ones

install rpmforge.repo and then try, you can get it.
You can install repo on line. it looks like this:


# Name: RPMforge RPM Repository for Red Hat Enterprise 5 - dag
# URL: http://rpmforge.net/
[rpmforge]
name = Red Hat Enterprise $releasever - RPMforge.net - dag
#baseurl = http://apt.sw.be/redhat/el5/en/$basearch/dag
mirrorlist = http://apt.sw.be/redhat/el5/en/mirrors-rpmforge
#mirrorlist = file:///etc/yum.repos.d/mirrors-rpmforge
enabled = 1
protect = 0
gpgkey = file:///etc/pki/rpm-gpg/RPM-GPG-KEY-rpmforge-dag
gpgcheck = 1

My apologies I made a minor error in my example above. The correct syntax should be
Code:
#yum --disablerepo=freshrpms install vlc

Thumbs up VLC Player working fine on RHEL5 as root user.

Hi friends

VLC Player is working fine on RHEL5 without registration.

Please follow the steps in GUI mode & plz avoid using yum installer while installing VLC.

1. Make sure your repository directory is properly configured.

2. Download the following files from the Internet

i. apt-0.5.15lorg3.2-1.el5.rf.i386.rpm
ii. fribidi-0.10.4-0.src.rpm
iii. libfribidi0-0.19.1-2mdv2009.1.i586.rpm
iv. rpmforge-release-0.3.6-1.el5.rf.i386.rpm
v. vlc-0.8.6d-1.el5.rf.i386.rpm

3. Once the download is over. Install the rpm files in GUI mode. Install the vlc-0.8.6d-1.el5.rf.i386.rpm file at last.

4. Your VLC player is ready to work without any problem.

Feedbacks welcome.

Hi All,

I am using RHEL-5 (without paid support now), and want to install vlc-0.9.9 on my machine. I havestarted a new thread last week, and get some references from you all. But that time I was unable to get much out of that, so I decided to get back to shelves and read some more details about installation of VLC.

Today I check this thread and saw that there is enough information to start with. I downloaded vlc-0.9.9a-5.el5.rf.x86_64.rpm from the net, and later following the thread, downloaded and install 'rpmforge-release-0.3.6-1.el4.rf.x86_64.rpm' as well.

After that I tried: YUM INSTALL vlc-0.9.9a-5.el5.rf.x86_64.rpm , and it worked fine for me as this time it resolved almost all the dependencies. Just few left , those are :
i) Error: Missing Dependency: libfribidi.so.0()(64bit) is needed by package vlc
ii)Error: Missing Dependency: libQtCore.so.4()(64bit) is needed by package vlc
iii)Error: Missing Dependency: libQtGui.so.4()(64bit) is needed by package vlc
iv)Error: Missing Dependency: libgif.so.4()(64bit) is needed by package imlib2

Now the problem is that I believe that I am pretty ready to use the VLC software, but I am not getting the location where it got saved at? Could anybody please help me in locating that so that I can see if I am able to use that ??

Many thanks in advance,
Kapil
