Thanks for the reply, Megaman!
Okay, I went into rpmdrake's package remover, but couldn't find libdha. Does that mean it's not installed? If it's not installed, how can there be a conflict? How do I remove it? How do I even know if it's installed in the first place? Rpmdrake and rpm -qi seem to give me different answers. Plus, I don't even know how to figure what actual rpm a given file is in. (I know I should use urpmq, but when I do that on GTK2, for example, it tells me about 10 different packages.)
I was trying to install off the Net -- my CD's only come with Mplayer 0.90. In any case, though, I tried installing off the CD's and still got problems. The CD itself didn't seem to have the correct libraries. I've tried other sources -- a magazine CD and downloads via easy urpmi
, but nothing's working. In fact, now I can't even get my CD to eject. I'm going crazy.
I'm sorry, but I'm getting really depressed. In order to view video, I have to install Mplayer, but to get Mplayer, I have to install 20 other things, and half those things won't install because of Catch-22's or other conflicts with each other. How does anyone get mplayer installed? I'm despairing of ever being able to install Mplayer, much less any of the other things I want to do... I'm also trying to install SCIM
(a Chinese input system), but no one can help me. It requires GTK2 of some sort which I already have installed but refuses to recognize.
Why can't installation be easier?
