Question Apt rpm conflicts???


I have been working on mplayer for one week. I have been using linux for one week. Anyways, I am running RH9 and can't get the sources or rpm's to work. After reading this post: http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...mplayer+issues
I have decided to try apt-get. Now I have another problem:

[root@dhcppc0 kyle]# rpm -Uvh apt-0.5.5cnc6-fr1.i386.rpm
Preparing... ########################################### [100%]
file /etc/apt/rpmpriorities from install of apt-0.5.5cnc6-fr1 conflicts
with file from package atrpms-14-1.rh9.at
file /etc/apt/sources.list from install of apt-0.5.5cnc6-fr1 conflicts with file from package atrpms-14-1.rh9.at
file /etc/apt/vendors.list from install of apt-0.5.5cnc6-fr1 conflicts with file from package atrpms-14-1.rh9.at

How do I fix this?

I don't think that is right... the command apt-get doesn't work.

hrmm, maybe you can remove the existing package and try again, or even force the installation with the --force flag...
i would recommend removing the existing version at first attempt
