Mplayer dependency hell!


I finnaly got my sound card working in Linux with ALSA drivers for Fedora!

I can listen to all of my mp3s in XMMS, but I use iTunes in Windows. I hear that Mplayer for Linux plays the AAC (.m4p) that iTunes uses. I got the rpm I needed to install Mplayer (mplayer-1.0-pre3_27.rhfc1.at.i386.rpm), and went to install it and... DEPENDENCY HELL.

Is there a way to get around all of these dependencies, or do I have to install them one by one?

Would it be eaisier just to use WINE to run iTunes for Windows on Linux? It would also be better to do this, since I download songs on iTunes also.

just install from source, you should require NOTHING but the main package to play dvd's etc...
