Ok so im trying install mplayer i got all the dependencies it needs but it still says it needs libgif.so.4. When i try to install it im told that a newer version is already installed. i went to uninstall the package and when i did it tells me "error: Failed dependencies:
libungif.so.4 is needed by (installed) imlib-1.9.13-23.i386". So i thought ok ill uninstall that package and reinstall it but when i do i get this "error: Failed dependencies:
libgdk_imlib.so.1 is needed by (installed) gnome-libs-188.8.131.52.90-44.1.i386
libgdk_imlib.so.1 is needed by (installed) gtk-engines-0.12-5.i386
libgdk_imlib.so.1 is needed by (installed) fvwm-2.4.19-1.i386
imlib is needed by (installed) gnome-libs-184.108.40.206.90-44.1.i386" Ok well if i keep unistalling all these dependencies my os will not work right. Im still kinda a linux noob so im sorry if i seem stupid on this but im not sure why mplayer doesnt see the newer version of the dependency package there. Can anyone help with this!!! PLEASE!!!!!
