I'm using RHEL 4 WS.
I tried installing VLC on my system.
I tried with the source files also with the RPMs of EL4 and FC4
still i'm unable to install it.
When i try with the rpms, it says dependencies missing.
when i try to compile the source, it says ffmpeg/avcodec.h is missing or not there. I tried placing the file there but still i'm unable to compile it. the same message keeps coming up.
I'm also new to linux and am having the same problem. when I try to install the rpm i get a "error: Failed dependencies." and when I try "--nodeps" I get "error: can't create transaction lock" I have no idea what this means. Any help?
ok. but the list just keeps on going.
i've installed some 20 dependencies. still after everytime i still end up with last 5 dependencies and i'm unable to find them anywhere. I've been searching for them for the last 2 weeks.
I think the ones for EL3 or FC3 should work fine with EL4, is that right? Or will unstability occur?
they should be fine, but VLC is dependent on those libs etc. so it's obviously ging to miss some of it's functionality without those, i would have thought the VLC website would have links to the deps no?
Don't try the --nodeps option.
VLC will not work even if get installed without errors.
Try to download and install all the dependencies manually.
Try to search in Google or http:\\rpm.pbone.net
If you can get all the dependencies lemme know.
All the Best.
