WMP 10 Fedora 4 Wine


At the moment I attempting to install Windows Media Player 10 but when I start to install WMP with wine I'm greet with this error messange

"An unexpected error has occurred. Setup was not able to dect any windows Media Updates. Please try again later."

I say that WMP is looking for a older version to update but of course been linux there is none, what should I do. The file MP10 was downloaded from a non microsoft site but I've use it many times within XP. Thanks in advance

Also what is the shell command to get your kernel version? I had to boot down and get it from grub before, lol.

Stats

Distro: Fedora Core 4
Kernel: 2.6.14-1.1644
Wine: -0.9.2

not sure about your media player issue as your post is a bit confusing, however, you can get your kernel version by doing uname -va

windows media player?

you're welcome.

may i ask why your goal is to install windows media player?

there are other options that work quite nicely, such as VLC

perhaps, you have drm content? if so, there are ways to play such content in other players.

I also tryed yum -y install vlc as Chaddo suggested and it began to update it self but come with this error

Parsing package install arguments
No Match for argument: vlc
Nothing to do

What should I do here? Also I'm trying to get some info on my connection and LAN, in win I would use ipconfig /all, what command do you use for linux.

linux uses
Code:
ifconfig
Code:
iwconfig
The latter will be useful if you use wifi.

for vlc...try
Code:
yum install videolan-client
Tux,

Edit: If you want you can check out the following site and see the exact names. http://rpm.pbone.net

guide

dunno about anyone else, but that link pointed to more or less a blank page...

tell ya what, skyscraper, why don't you take a look at this well done guide and be sure to pay particularly close attention to the parts about yum and installing media apps (such as VLC) and perhaps you will have some success!

If got a nice page of instructions the first time around...but it does show a blank page when i open it now...strange. Anyway here's the link:
http://dag.wieers.com/home-made/apt/

go to "Installation and Configuration"

Thanks for pointing that out.
Tux,
