You should install system-release (version 13 or highter) and rpmlib (version 5.2-1 or lower) packages.

Welcome to LQ.

rpmfusion-free-release-rawhide.noarch.rpm : Wrong !

" rawhide " is Fedora 13, the files, the vlc will not work
on Fedora 10.

This is what you need :
http://download1.rpmfusion.org/free/...ble.noarch.rpm

And better delete all rpmfusion.rawhide : repo files in
/etc/yum.repos.d/ , etc etc.
.....

Or download manually and compile from source, that way you can have the newest version.

Yes, you can't delete system files as unprivileged user.

Please use these commands in the terminal window :

1) su ( and enter password )

2) gedit /etc/yum.repos.d/fedora-rawhide.repo

.. and change all : enabled=1 ( probably three lines )

to : enabled=0
.....

Or just do : 1) su , 2) cd /etc/yum.repos.d/
3) mv fedora-rawhide.repo fedora-rawhide.repo-back
.....

hi jaspreet,

Code:
# rpm -Uvh http://download1.rpmfusion.org/free/fedora/rpmfusion-free-release-stable.noarch.rpm
Code:
# rpm -Uvh http://download1.rpmfusion.org/nonfree/fedora/rpmfusion-nonfree-release-stable.noarch.rpm


Code:
# rpm -Uvh rpmfusion-free-release-stable.noarch.rpm rpmfusion-nonfree-release-stable.noarch.rpm

Code:
# yum install mplayer-gui  
# yum install xine  
# yum install vlc

i try this code and it is working in fedora 12
the only problem i face durnning Mplayer
there is variable should be changed in your profile
you will find directory in your home directory calles .mplayer
you will find file named gui.conf change the variable to this value
vo_drive="x11"

Note:-
please reply me if it is working or not

Best Regards
Alexander Corvinus

But i am new to Linux and i didnt found any directory bearing the name .mplayer in my Home Directory
Can you please specify the exact location, i would be interested to know as well where all the softwares get installed when i switch to Superuser

hi jaspreet
i didn't write
# yum install m-player-gui
what i write before is
# yum install mplayer-gui

and you should also do the previous command
which add the repo to your system

assume that your user name is jaspreet
make this command after installation
# cd
# ls -la
you will find file named .mplayer

mplayer is not supposed to be run by root.

And please do not use the ' ls ' command as root.
"root" is for administrative tasks only !

Starting mplayer as ordinary user :
The directory /home/<user>/.mplayer/
is created. ls -la .mplayer/ :
config gui.conf gui.history gui.pl gui.url
.....

hi jaspreet;

Code:
rpm -Uvh http://download1.rpmfusion.org/free/fedora/rpmfusion-free-release-stable.noarch.rpm
Code:
rpm -Uvh http://download1.rpmfusion.org/nonfree/fedora/rpmfusion-nonfree-release-stable.noarch.rpm

Code:
yum install mplayer-gui  
yum install xine  
yum install vlc

And small issue before the end. Instead of playing AVI, mplayer gave me the following message:

Error opening/initializing the selected video_out (-vo) device

The solution was to change output video device in mplayer-gui to xv, gl, ... (depends on your video hardware but in general, xv should work):
view plain

1. mplayer-gui -> Preferences -> Video -> xv
