i just had the very same problem, installed the thing you told me to, and it does the same thing again. i have installed it into the /usr/src/redhat/SOURCES that i had to create, unzipped everything that had a zip file i could find, and still end up with "error: Failed dependencies:
libSDL-1.2.so.0 is needed by mplayer-gui-1.0pre3-1"...what the heck am i doing wrong?!?!?! ::frustrated:: -tnf

rpms are installed by entering the command "rpm -ivh SDL-1.2.4-5.i386.rpm" I am not sure what you are unzipping, as rpm files are usually not in zip format. The directory /usr/src/redhat/SOURCES is for SDL-1.2.4-5.src.rpm files. You don't need them unless you want to compile yourself. Judging by your frustration, don't bother with the .src files. Just stick with the binaries.

some details please....

Check if u have SDL installed (as solspin pointed out)

If you dont...get it from http://www.libsdl.org/download-1.2.php

Install it

Get mplayer rpm from http://www.mplayerhq.hu/homepage/design6/dload.html

Should work

Cheers

FINALLY i figured it out, thanks to everyones help... you need to do the following
go to http://www.libsdl.org/download-1.2.php and download the file SDL-1.2.7-1.i386.rpm . i had the 4-5 one, and this was the wrong one i guess. then for RH*, go to here and download the files (3 of them needed to install) mplayer-common-1.0pre3-1.i386.rpm AND mplayer-gui-1.0pre3-1.i386.rpm AND mplayer-skin-default-1.0-2.noarch.rpm AND lame-libs-3.93.1-1.i386.rpm . once you have all this, (logged into as root of course) open the terminal rpm the sdl file using the command line

rpm -i SDL-1.2.7-1.i386.rpm

, then run this command line to install mplayer itsself.

rpm -Uvh mplayer-common-1.0pre3-1.i386.rpm mplayer-gui-10pre3-1.i386.rpm mplayer-skin-default-1.0-2.noarch.rpm lame-libs-3.93.1-1.i386.rpm

this should make it install, now i have to figure out how to start it and use it and dl codecs. good luck!

you have to have the three files i mentioned above, i think they are mplayer-common-1.0pre3-1.i386.rpm AND mplayer-gui-1.0pre3-1.i386.rpm AND mplayer-skin-default-1.0-2.noarch.rpm AND lame-libs-3.93.1-1.i386.rpm (not with the ands) and there is a link to the site above. once you have downloaded all of these, go into the terminal logged on as root, type ls, then hit enter. you will see a list of all the files you have. if you have the three that are needed, run this command (without quotes) " rpm -Uvh mplayer-common-1.0pre3-1.i386.rpm mplayer-gui-10pre3-1.i386.rpm mplayer-skin-default-1.0-2.noarch.rpm lame-libs-3.93.1-1.i386.rpm"


good luck, and keep trying, its the =only way i got it to work

Re Hi
tnf

I also tried your solution all rpms you mentioned getting installed. But I am not getting the mplayer executable file. Instead of that I'm only getting skin in "/usr/share/local" folder & one mplayer folder in /etc with three files out of that one is mplayer.conf. I also tried to install mplayer rpm which was downloaded from mplayerhq site. but it is showing dependencies failed. Is it method to install mplayer. please advice.

Thanks in advance

When I install mplayer, I found that the mplayer files were dependent on each other, so i put them all in 1 folder, cd'd to that folder and typed rpm -i *.rpm. I dunno, maybe I had older rpms, but it works fine now.
