mplayer in RedHat 9.0


I want to install the mplayer0.9 in my RH Linux. the mplayer package I download contains a lot of rpms. Because each of them is the dependence of the other, I cant install them one by one.

So would someone please tell me how to install them at once?

Thanks.

I've got another problem

The Mplayer I installed is Chinese version. But my default system language is English. So the mplayer cant show very well. Then I want to install an English version mplayer. I downloaded 3 different size package. And when I install each of them, it tells me that some dependcies are needed.

So anyone would tell me where to download the whole package of mplayer. I am tired of searching every needed dependcy everywhere and most of time it gives me no result.

Thanks.

You could also put all the rpms you wanted to install into one directory, then:

open terminal
su -
yourrootpassword
cd /directory where the rpms are
rpm -ivh *.rpm

For RedHat 9.0:

1. Download apt for RedHat 9.0 from here.
2. Install the apt package by going into the directory you downloaded it to and executing:

rpm -Uvh apt*

as root.
3. Run:

apt-get update

as root.
4. Run:

apt-get install mplayer

as root.

5. Sit back, crack a beer, and watch some movies.

The graphical interface for apt, synaptic, available from freshrpms seems to work quite well as. I find it useful for displayomg package name and information.
