Trying to install mplayer with rpms is what drove me to start installing from source code.

were in the world do i get these darn blasted lib... the stupid libasound.so.2 is one that both mplayer and totem seem to want. when i do a serch for them with google, or rpmfind i get something that is not exactly what they are looking for and need more lib files/programs to install them too.

all i want is to listen to some mp3s while i work on my system. is that to Fin much to ask from *nix?

I noticed one of the errors was no skin found. You could try to play on of the songs with mplayer(no gui)
$mplayer /the/location/of/the/song

I would reccomend installing all of your developmentel tools. These are needed to compile from source code. Goto add/remove programs install of of your developmental stuff(it will prompt you to insert a disk). After you do this dowload the source file from mplayer and install from that. You will be so much happier with the finall product. Mplayer was the first program I compiled from source. RPMS were driving me crazy.

Mplayer has circular dependencies, which is t o say there is no correct order all necessary rpms (common, gui, skin, lame-libs I believe) have to be installed simultaneously.

rmp -Uvf mplayer-common mplayer-gui lame-lib skin

Only of course using the actual file names which I am at the moment far too lazy to look up.

The instructions on GreySector are pretty good, I got it working for FC1 without too much hassle, though because they seem to be in the middle of switching versions apt-get for rpm's won't work even with the listed servers so you have to do it manually.

thank you, that link got a working copy of mplayer on my system after i added the skin rpm and upgraded that.

now my issues is for some reason it will only play video files and refuses to do anything with my mp3 songs.

all i want to do right now is listen to some music as i work on my web page. is that to much to ask for RH?

Do you have xmms or kaboodle on your system? Both will allow you to play a directory that contains your mp3 files.

with xmms i dont have the codex, and have had a dickens of a time finding the correct codex that is not missing something to install.

i am not dead set on using mplayer as my music player, its just what i used in the past. if xmms would play my mp3s id gladly swap over to that.
