Question Problems in installing multimedia players in newly installed Fedora 11


Hii,

I installed Fedora 11 last month and since then has been trying to install multimedia players for usages and everytime am being haunted by 'dependency' errors. Don't know if it's due to any missing packages.
I use a HP 520 laptop with 512 MB RAM and 80 GB HDD.

I wish I could have given the screenshot of the error shown in the CLI here.

How are you installing the multimedia players? are you using yum to install the multimedia players?

Most multimedia can be installed easily with Dangermouse's Autoten script, link here:

also BE WARNED

Fedora 11 will hit it's End Of Life in a few months ( about 2)
you would be better off scrapping the fedora 11 install and install fedora 12 .

Yep,I am using yum obviously. I wish I could have shown you the dependency errors I am being shown. Any way for that?
Say something, i have copied all the packages in my /opt/Software and then have run 'createrepo' and 'sh run'. What else I need to do?
