Question Mplayer Install ?Howto?


Running on RH9 -- (I'v got no connection on this system.)

# rpm -ivh mplayer-common-0.90-1.i386.rpm
warning: only V3 signatures can be verified, skipping V4 signature
error: Failed dependencies:
mplayer = 0.90 is need by mplayer-common-0.90-1.i386
#

I downloaded the apt-get program yet that doesn't do me any good since my box doesn't have a internet connection.

I think I need the previous version of mplayer to install this one. I got another file MPlayer-0.90.tar.tar . If I try to open this file, it won't unpack because it says it isn't a tar file. I could very well be wrong. Does anyone have a file out there that doesn't need the dependencies. Or anything else that might help me out.

(To get all the programs on my RH9 system (without connection) I'v burned CDs in case anyone was wondering.)

It is telling you that mplayer needs mplayer-common installed.

So make sure you have downloaded both rpms.

Then do

rpm -ivh mplayer-{whatever-version}.rpm mplayer-common-{same-whatever-version}.rpm

installing both at the same time, and it will not complain about unmet dependencies.

But what is the V3 signatures and the V4 signatures?

The V3 signature warnings are common; it's nothing to worry about. Assuming everything installs correctly, you should be able to run the graphical version of MPlayer simply by typing gmplayer in a terminal.

A way to avoid all these RPM problems is just to compile the program yourself by getting the source packages. It takes longer to install than RPMs, but it usually installs everything cleanly and with fewer dependency problems. You may wanna look into that.

the mplayer install on your pc sucessfully,
don't worry about warning of v3 signature,
you see icon in your menu bar, but some
problem with Mplayer that it can't play dat file and
it supports some files which is listed in mplayer file menu.

The warnings are informational messages, but what about that error message?


error: unpacking of archive failed on file /usr/bin/mplayer;3f2ae16d: cpio: read

That means that there is a problem with the rpm.
Perhaps it was not fully downloaded?
