i downloaded the xmms plugin so i could play mp3s and that installed fine and everything. but every other rpm i've downloaded so far will not run.
for example i'm trying to install mplayer, xine (anything that will play videos) and their dependants. some do not even do anything when I attempt to open them I don't get any errors. others will open a "checking for dependancies" window the bar will go to 100% close and nothing will happen everything just goes away.
i also tried running the rpms from the terminal:
rpm -i --force nameoffile.rpm
the terrminal just stops doing anything; no errors nothing. that was just a last resort guess i don't know if that would even work if everything was/is working right.
what the hell?
I've also tried: rpm -ivh filename.rpm
same result - nothing- and no errors
