mplayer problem


what's missing?
I've just installed mplayer 0.92 but......... i am using FC2

Code:
[root@localhost cdrom]# ls mplayer-*.rpm
mplayer-codecs-extralite-1.0-1.i386.rpm  mplayer-gui-0.92-1.i386.rpm
mplayer-common-0.92-1.i386.rpm           mplayer-skin-default-1.0-2.noarch.rpm
[root@localhost cdrom]# rpm -i mplayer-*
warning: only V3 signatures can be verified, skipping V4 signature
warning: mplayer-common-0.92-1.i386.rpm: V3 DSA signature: NOKEY, key ID 28a26067
warning: only V3 signatures can be verified, skipping V4 signature
error: Failed dependencies:
        mplayer-common = 0.92 is needed by mplayer-gui-0.92-1
I've got these 4 rpm successfully installed on another FC2 box and successfully played movies, however not for this time.

BTW, i tried to apt-get install mplayer, but once i start mplayer and play movies, it halts and terminates.......

thnx

you may want to install these packages in an order so that it finds the dependencies...

rpm -iv in this order:

mplayer-common-0.92-1.i386.rpm
mplayer-gui-0.92-1.i386.rpm
mplayer-skin-default-1.0-2.noarch.rpm
mplayer-codecs-extralite-1.0-1.i386.rpm

or check out their site to get the exact method they recommend.

I've seen cases where a cyclic dependency wouldn't allow to install the packages one at a time...

rpm -ivh mplayer-common-0.92-1.i386.rpm mplayer-gui-0.92-1.i386.rpm mplayer-skin-default-1.0-2.noarch.rpm mplayer-codecs-extralite-1.0-1.i386.rpm

(they're all in a single command line)

not sure where you got your packages, but have you tried going to

http://www.mplayerhq.hu/homepage/design7/dload.html


and grabing the packages they provide and installing from source?

here's the link to their doc's:

http://www.mplayerhq.hu/DOCS/HTML/en/index.html

also, im not sure if you are partial to mplayer but xine is a great option as well.

Have you tried installing mplayer-common in the first place by itself? It is pretty odd you're getting this message, because it should've worked in the first place.

Thats exactly what I had to do to get it to work...I just installed common by itself then installed the others and it worked fine

um, i tried to installed mplayer-common alone and at the first place:

rpm -ivh mplayer-common-0.92-1.i386.rpm

very surprising and mysterious, it said:

error: Failed dependencies:
mplayer-common = 0.92 is needed by mplayer-common-0.92-1



a contradicting result!
