Problems installing VLC, xine, Mplayer


Hi friends,
I am very new to linux. I recently installed Fedora Core 7 on my laptop.
I want to play media files like .avi, .mp3. So I downloaded and tried to install the following players, but not succeeded. vlc-0.8.6c-4.liv7.i386.rpm
mplayer-1.0-0.80.20070715svn.lvn7.i386.rpm
xine-0.99.5-1.lvn7.i386.rpm
I got the following type of errors.

Hi chennai, Welcome to lq. Looks like you have dependency issues. You should probably look into your yum configuration and try installing things that way. Here is a guide.
Good luck. ;-)

Problem partially solved

I tried using:
yum insatll vlc-0.8.6c-4.lvn7.i386.rpm
It showed to me that 41 packages are required and started
downloading them. At last, it showed the following error:

Error Downloading Packages:
lame - None:3.97-1.rh7.rf.i386: failure: RPMS/lame-3.97-1.rh7.rf.i386.rpm from rpmforge: [Errno 256] No more mirrors to try.
imlib2 - 1.3.0-3.fc7.i386: failure: Fedora/imlib2-1.3.0-3.fc7.i386.rpm from fedora: [Errno 256] No more mirrors to try.
compat-wxGTK26 - 2.6.3-2.i386: failure: Fedora/compat-wxGTK26-2.6.3-2.i386.rpm from fedora: [Errno 256] No more mirrors to try.

I don't know what do now. Could anybody help?
Thanks in advance.

It seems you are trying to install an .rpm-file with yum - don't do that. It may work, I don't know, but that is not how yum is supposed to be used. Instead enable the livna repository, if you haven't done that already, and execute
$ yum install vlc

That way it should automatically take care of the dependencies.

[root@localhost Desktop]# yum install livna-release-7.rpm
Loading "installonlyn" plugin
Setting up Install Process
Parsing package install arguments
Examining livna-release-7.rpm: livna-release - 7-2.noarch

Nothing to do

[root@localhost Desktop]# rpm -iv livna-release-7.rpm

Could anybody say what to do?
Thank you.

Wait, is that right? Are you trying to install a Redhat 7 package on Fedora 7? That won't do. You need to use the Fedora 7 repositories!

This is what you really need:
Quote:
# $Id: freshrpms.repo 3341 2005-06-28 18:40:26Z thias $
[freshrpms]
name=Fedora Core $releasever - $basearch - Freshrpms
#baseurl=http://ayo.freshrpms.net/fedora/linux/$releasever/$basearch/freshrpms/
mirrorlist=http://ayo.freshrpms.net/fedora/linux/$releasever/mirrors-freshrpms
enabled=1
gpgkey=file:///etc/pki/rpm-gpg/RPM-GPG-KEY-freshrpms
gpgcheck=1
Put this in a file called freshrpms.repo and place it in /etc/yum.repos.d.

Hi jay73,
I have saved the file with the name and location you specified. But nothing happened. When I tried to open it, it opened with Text Editor.
Do I have to type a command to make it work? How would this file install VLC media player? Kindly tell me. Thank You.

Try using this command in a terminal: yum install vlc

Make sure to remove the Redhat file first if it's still there.

Hi jay73, I typed the command and got the following error.

[root@localhost ~]# yum install vlc
Loading "installonlyn" plugin
Config Error: File contains no section headers.
file: file://///etc/yum.repos.d/freshrpms.repo, line: 1
' # $Id: freshrpms.repo 3341 2005-06-28 18:40:26Z thias $\n'
[root@localhost ~]#

Any mistake in what you've typed?
Thank You.

Yeah, remove that first line. I copied those lines from a config file I saved to my Ubuntu system (I no longer have Fedora 7 installed at the moment); I don't know how that first line ended up there, it shouldn't have.

Hi everybody,

I have tried what jay73 has told. I tried 'yum install vlc' from root.
Everytime it showed me some packages to be installed from the network and tried downloading them via mirrors. Some of them found,some not. I tried a number of times. But everytime it failed to download some of the total required packages. Now it's showing as follows.

[root@localhost crclient]# yum install vlc
Loading "installonlyn" plugin
Existing lock /var/run/yum.pid: another copy is running as pid 2747. Aborting.
[root@localhost crclient]#

What to do now? Will this yum resume installation? How to resume?
Windows does not download anything from the net while installing. Is there any such chance in Fedora?

Thanks in advance.

This simply means that that another program is accessing the database/list/whatever of installed programs, and Fedora (and most other distros, I think) won't let more than one program do that at the same time, probably because it could screw up said database (let's call it that...).

What you could do to resolve this problem is to wait a while until the other instance of yum has finished its run, or you could kill it with
$kill [insert pid number here]
