RPMs Already Installed


I'm trying to set up ogle (so that I can play DVDs) with a few RPMs. These are the files:
Code:
libdvdcss-1.2.8-1.fr.src.rpm
libdvdread-0.9.4-fr3.src.rpm
ogle-0.9.1-ogle1alsa.i586.rpm
ogle_gui-0.9.1-fr2.src.rpm
I first tried installing the rpms by clicking on them. The first two say "everything already installed." However, when I try to install ogle, it complains about required dependencies. Should I try installed with the --nodeps argument or do I have to do something else to get the first two RPMs to install?

3 of the 4 RPMs you downloaded are source code (.src.rpm) RPMs.
You need to download the binary RPMs (.i586.rpm).

consider xine with the gxine interface....

much better performance IMO

also, u don't need to rpm it because it is very easy to install via the sources (which are far better than rpm's)

untar the tarball, do ./configure && make install for both xinelib and gxine and all is done! type gxine in a terminal and u get it running! (plays everything, only thing i don't think it plays that is widely used is .mov)

I have the version of xine that came with Mandrake 9.1, but it doesn't seem like it can get DVD menus to work. I'm also not a big fan of the interface, but it might just take some getting used to.

the version of xine that came with mandrake 9.1 is outdated, download the latest one (it's beta, but it works extremely well)

also, the mandrake one uses the xineui interface which i didn't like either, gxine is much better, trust me (though the only tip i can give is not to fill out the introduction wizard, it doesn't want to be filled out...)

try it, i did and my mandrake gxine is definitely what i use to play movies

Thanks for the advice.

I can't seem to find the correct rpms, so I'm going to try xine now.
