Attempting to install mplayer has led me to this error:
[root@localhost ~]# rpm -Uvh mplayer-1.0pre8-1.i386.rpm
warning: mplayer-1.0pre8-1.i386.rpm: Header V3 DSA signature: NOKEY, key ID b6d6aef5
error: Failed dependencies:
libXvMCW.so.1 is needed by mplayer-1.0pre8-1.i386
libtheora.so.0(libtheora.so.1.0) is needed by mplayer-1.0pre8-1.i386
I have a feeling this kind of thing is going to happen a lot. What I would love an
expert to do is tell me exactly what steps they would take based upon that information
is given here in a fashion that allows me to inspect your thoughts the way they would occur.
If this were windows my thought process would be something like this:
"error? [dang]. Missing a dependency - libXvMCW.so.1 (what the [heck] kind of name is that
for a file?) google for that [messed] up file name. Find it and download it. Figure out where
this file needs to go so that I can install mplayer. Probably something missing from RPM
itself so i'll google installing RPM dependencies to figure out how to install it."
Language sort of edited out. Though it was funny, it's really not work or kid appropriate.
Please keep in mind for future posts that they should be "kid" safe. Thanks!
