now i haven't got a clue what any of that means and Tinkster i don't understand what you mean either i would look at the docs if i knew where they are i checked the website for mplayer and i don't understand what they say no back to what i said a minute ago.. how do i uninstall an rpm not just the mplayer ones but also the stupid xmms mp3 one because none of them are working and i just want to listen to music and watch videos
this is really stupid i mean i know its not supposed to be EASY but this is ridiculous!!
