Question Problems installing mplayer on Redhat 9


I am new to lunix and need some help. I am trying to install mplayer on Redhat 9 and ran into some problems. I downloaded these 5 packages from the mplayer site

1) mplayer-common-0.92-1.i386.rpm
2) MPlayer-0.92.tar
3) Abyss-1.0.tar
4) mplayer-gui-0.92-1.i386.rpm
5) font-arial-iso-8859-1.tar

and from what i have read on the internet they have to be installed in that order. So I opened the Gnome terminal window and changed to root, then I enter this command

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

Then it gave me this error message

warning: mplayer-common-0.92-1.i386.rpm: V3 DSA signature: NOKEY, key ID 28a26067
error: Failed dependencies:
mplayer = 0.92 is needed by mplayer-common-0.92-1

Can someone please help me. I have no idea what is wrong.

THANX

there are rpms of those packages. there's a redhat link on the mplayer site. plus the version you downloaded are old. mplayer is up to version 1.0 rc 2 or something like that. anyway, doing a --force and --nodeps on the rpms should install those fine.

rpm -ivh --nodeps --force *.rpm

or

rpm -Uvh --nodeps --force *.rpm

the second one is if you already have mplayer installed and are trying to upgrade.

Well my suggestion is try using apt-get with synaptic. Will make ur life much easier especially if u wanna install from rpm's . Go to freshrpms.net and download apt and synaptic. Install these two rpm's. Now if u look at ur start menu u will find an entry for synaptic. Click on it and search for mplayer. Add that to the install list and click install.. and voila .... mplayer is installed and ready to roll....

MPlayer-0.92.tar, font-arial-iso-8859-1.tar and Abyss-1.0.tar are tarballs, not RPMs.

Go back to the MPlayer website and click on one of the links associated with MPlayer RPM packages for Red Hat.
MPlayer RPMs are also available in different architectures.
