Welcome to LQ. .. ..
How about : # yum install vlc
.. which will display a list with all dependencies and give you an
idea about the 29 " -devel " packages required to compile vlc.
And if you hit enter for yes [y], vlc is installed, and you
don't have to compile it.
( I just did that on Fedora 13 - 64 : about a minute for all 30 packages.)
Good luck !
P.S. : If you want the source code for the 29 pieces of software,
they should be easy to find with Google, when you now have the list
with the required versions.
