Does anybody know if I can find a free Linux DVD Player, and hell while I am at it something to Play DiVx and Mpeg1 and Mpeg2 Video? If they have all that for linux, and it must be in a RPM so I can get it on RH9..

Thanks In Advance

I am having a problem with RPMs, when I click on them and put in my root password it checks for Package Dependencies, and then after thats done the little box goes off, and it does not do anything else..

It does not install, some RPMs will install like Yahoo Installed, and so did this MP3 Plugin, but this one will not install, and I had some do the same that I was never able to install..

well i would say its one of the two things...
a) you have to remove the lock files, if it is the case you will do::
rm -rf /var/lib/rpm/__db*
rpm -vv --rebuilddb

and then retry installing the rpm...
or.....
b) this usually happens with source (src.rpm) rpms..so if the ending of the name of the file is src.rpm, then that also could be it....and if it is a source rpm you can jump into the terminal and type:::
rpm -ivh nameofpackage.src.rpm
cd /usr/src/redhat/SOURCES

and then go compile the file...

I did

rm -rf /var/lib/rpm/__db*
rpm -vv --rebuilddb

Just like that into the Terminal, it like added a whole bunch of entries.. I tried the RPM again and it did the same thing, and in root it should work right.. Then again should the...

rm -rf /var/lib/rpm/__db*
rpm -vv --rebuilddb

..be on one line or two? I put it on two lines...

It is not a source rpm, so that should not be reason...

its two seperate lines....
do you get any errors when doing rebuilddb?
if not, then install the rpm from command line like so ::
rpm -ivh filename.rpm
post what happens after issuing that command...

I am doing the rebuild again, I don't think I finished, last time when it quit I shut it off, I tried it again and it quit, and I was about to close out of the terminal and it started again.. How will I know when the rebuild is finished?
