I downloaded all the rpms from the link you provided.
When I did the rpm -ivh got all errors
ex: when I did rpm -ivh mplayer-common1.0pre2-1.athlon.rpm
warning: mplayer-common-1.0pre2-1.athlon.rpm: V3 DSA signature: NOKEY, key ID 28a26067
error: Failed dependencies:
mplayer = 1.0pre2 is needed by mplayer-common-1.0pre2-1
why wont the terminal access any folders of files that are in anything deeper than one sub-dir?
It will access the deeper files / folders that were created by the installer, but for instance, I downloaded the mplayer files to /downloads/mplayer and it wont access the mplayer folder I made. I don't get it
I thank all of you for your help and patience. Nick
