Ok, I'm a Linux newbie and just installed RedHat 8.0 to my computer. I've managed to figure everything else out, but I'm having problems installing/running MPlayer...
I downloaded and installed all the required rpm-packeges, but when I try to run the program with the "gmplayer"-command, I get the following message:

What's wrong? Or are there any better programs to view mpg and avi files?
