Packages Needed To Run Mplayer


I went to install Mplayer, and so far I have installed a ton of Packages just to get everything working.. Yet their are three packages that I can not find for RH9 RPMS

liblirc_client.so.0
lirc
mplayer-fonts

if anyone knows a link or links that have these for RPMs that will work with RH9 please post those links here.

Thanx Iin Advance!

An update

Okay so Now all I lack is Lirc and Mplayer Fonts

I found the RPMs but I am still having trouble

Here is what I get when trying to install Lirc

[root@localhost root]# rpm -vih lirc-0.6.6-fr1.i386.rpm
warning: lirc-0.6.6-fr1.i386.rpm: V3 DSA signature: NOKEY, key ID e42d547b
Preparing... ########################################### [100%]
file /usr/lib/liblirc_client.so.0.0.0 from install of lirc-0.6.6-fr1 conflicts with file from package liblirc0-0.6.6-1mdk

Here is what I get when trying to install Mplayer Fonts

[root@localhost root]# rpm -vih MPlayer-fonts-0.91-alt21.i586.rpm
warning: MPlayer-fonts-0.91-alt21.i586.rpm: V3 DSA signature: NOKEY, key ID ae59c160
error: Failed dependencies:
MPlayer >= 0.90 is needed by MPlayer-fonts-0.91-alt21

If Mplayer needs the Fonts to Install and the Fonts need Mplayer to install, I am kind of stuck here..

The best way to get a working mplayer is to forget about rpms and compile it from source. I can tell you how exactly if you want. There is perfect instructions included in the source code package's READ ME as well. A tricky bit is LAME which you need if you want to use mplayer's mencoder to make divx from dvds. I personaly think that mencoder makes the nicest rips i have ever seen. Cheers.

The question is how to get to the Source Codes Read Me File? Please tell me if you think I will make more sense out of you then the Read Me file..

well. Go to...
http://www.mplayerhq.hu/homepage/
and download the source code package, untar it, then navigate to the place you untarred it and then open it then look around until you see the READ ME and then read it. That should do it. You are going to need your kernel source installed and your X11 development packages to satisfy dependencies before you compile Mplayer. Cheers.

what does that mean, "you will need your kernel source installed"? Does that mean I need to have compiled my kernel from source, that if my kernel was updated via rpm it won't work?

The kernel source is different than your actual kernel. Look in /usr/src and see if there is anything there. The source is about 150 meg. There will be your kernel source on your disc three (a guess). Also there should be all kinds of devel pckgs, including the X11 stuff. cheers.

why? just install them at the same time.... rpm can easily accept multiple files.

and installing MPlayer from source is a LOT LOT easier believe it or not.

and you will NOT need the kernel source at any stage.

I agree with kewpie about mplayer being easier to install from source. But i do think you need to have the kernel source installed to satisfy dependencies. At least you do in Mandy 9 and Mandy 9.1.

rpm -Uvh file1.rpm file2.rpm

coulnd't be easier or more obvious

and you don't need lirc.... hence why RPM's suck... are you really planning on using an infrared remote control? doubt it....
