Problems with VLC RPM package
 
I am trying to load VLC media Player

I go to install it from RPM drake ( Mandriva RPM package installer) and when I try to execute the program the Gui never launches, I get a bouncing Icon ( the orange traffic cone, then it just disappears..

I am running Mnadriva KDE 4

below is the shell text that comes up when I try to run VLC from shell

Does nayone have any experience with this problem do I need to RPM additonal support packages that are listed as dependancies?

try running rpms from shell with --nodeps argument
e.g. # rpm -ivh vlc-0.9-2.3.rpm --nodeps

Install all rpms in vlc folder with above method and try. More over after installation , vlc can not be run as 'root' for security reasons. U need another user login.

VLC media player 0.9.9a Grishenko
0.9.9a ... alpha ? ? That is strange, when I install it,
I get version 0.9.3
( with the install command # urpmi vlc ).

And version 0.9.3 works OK.

These are the "vlc packages" I got
Code:

[knudfl@localhost ~]$ rpm -qa | grep vlc
vlc-0.9.3-2mdv2009.0
vlc-plugin-ogg-0.9.3-2mdv2009.0
libvlccore0-0.9.3-2mdv2009.0
vlc-plugin-pulse-0.9.3-2mdv2009.0
libvlc2-0.9.3-2mdv2009.0
vlc-plugin-a52-0.9.3-2mdv2009.0

And the package manager shows two versions,
0.9.3 and 0.9.8a, but not 0.9.9a .
Suggest : Try the stable version = 0.9.3 .

Thanks I tried to Install 9.3 from RPMdrake and the version I got was 9.8, strange how it defaults to latest version.
