Hi,
I am assuming that you are trying to use apt-get in RedHat 9. In debian, we have a file (/etc/apt/sources.list) that must be edited, so apt-get will know where to get the packages from.
It almost sounds as if apt-get is not being updated correctly.
Are you using Red-Hat?
If so, are you using the correct version of apt-get?
How does apt-get know where to get the packages from? ( which file do you edit, or is there one?)

update just updates the package list, it doesnt actually change any files.

I think what you are thinking of is:

apt-get dist-upgrade

that upgrades your whole system.

wait could it be that a it gives me this error most of the time:?
Code:
Reading Package Lists... Done
Building Dependency Tree... Done
W: There are multiple versions of "freetype" in your system.

This package won't be cleanly updated, unless you leave
only one version. To leave multiple versions installed,
you may remove that warning by setting the following
option in your configuration file:

RPM::Allow-Duplicated { "^freetype$"; };

To disable these warnings completely set:

RPM::Allow-Duplicated-Warning "false";

W: There are multiple versions of "fontconfig" in your system.

This package won't be cleanly updated, unless you leave
only one version. To leave multiple versions installed,
you may remove that warning by setting the following
option in your configuration file:

RPM::Allow-Duplicated { "^fontconfig$"; };

To disable these warnings completely set:

RPM::Allow-Duplicated-Warning "false";

W: You may want to run apt-get update to correct these problems
If it helps I can get it to install mplayer to a point then it says somethin bout file conflicting with it.

Apt-get for RedHat

Hi,
I really think you would do well to go back and read the HOW-TO posted above. I have admitted that I know nothing about RedHat, but if it is complaining about multiple versions of different packages on your system, I am pretty sure that is compounding your problem.
Apt-get can be used to remove packages as well as install them. It sounds as if you need to go through your installed packages, and get rid of the ones that are causing conflicts.
I do not know how this is done in RedHat. I know it is a lot easier for me to say, than for you to do. Good luck.
