many vlc dependencies ./configure errors and No package 'fribidi' found


hello *
i have tried in vain to install vlc player (video lan) on fedora 13 and these are the errors i got.
1st fedora tells me i need 'lua' which try to install but tells me its installed like you can see.

To minimise errors i disable all dependencies and lastly it tells me 'fribidi' not found.
I HAVE LEFT OUT THE VERBOSE OUTPUT.
code:
[root@myself vlc-1.1.12]#./configure
configure: error: Could not find lua. Lua is needed for some interfaces (rc, telnet, http) as well as many other custom scripts. Use --disable-lua to ignore this error.

[root@myself vlc-1.1.12]# rpm -qa lu*
lua-5.1.4-4.fc12.i686

[root@myself vlc-1.1.12]# ./configure --disable-lua --disable-mad --disable-avcodec --disable-postproc --disable-a52

configure: error: Package requirements (fribidi) were not met:

No package 'fribidi' found

Consider adjusting the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable if you
installed software in a non-standard prefix.

Alternatively, you may set the environment variables FRIBIDI_CFLAGS
and FRIBIDI_LIBS to avoid the need to call pkg-config.
See the pkg-config man page for more details.
[root@myself vlc-1.1.12]#

Possible solutions : 1) # yum install vlc
From : http://rpmfusion.org/Configuration
Ref. : http://www.videolan.org/vlc/download-fedora.html


Or 2) , if you really want to build it yourself :
# yum install fribidi-devel

you have fedora 11 programs installed on fedora 13

NOT GOOD

what you now have is a Frankensteined install
a mix of TWO or more DIFFERENT operating systems
fedora 11 IS NOT the same as fedora 13 - they ARE different OS's

there should be NO fedora 11 & 12 rpms on fedora 13 (well maybe 3 or 4 fc12 on 13 - it happens )

also please stay current and install fedora 15
or fedora 16 in about two weeks



uninstall ALL fedora 11 & 12 rpms on that fedora 13 install
to see just what is installed
run
Code:
su -
rpm -qa | grep fc11

rpm -qa | grep fc12
and REMOVE every fedora 11 & 12 rpm

PS. this might not be fixable if there are more than about 15 to 20 fedora 11 and 12 rpms installed on the EOL fedora 13

You did, I hope, notice that you were installing packages from F-11 and F-12 as well as F-13.

Here's what YUM would show you if you moved to F-16. (Note the only five older, F-15, programs are listed.)
