Question Successfully installing mplayer from RPM's


I have downloaded and installed several RPM packages of mplayer.
I must be doing something wrong. Each package says the it requires the other. I have downloaded all of the packages and it still says it requires something else.

I might be doing something wrong but I have tried running all of these packages that are on the default download site.
My install of Fedora contains everything that is on the 3cd's so I don't think I am missing some core library.

The strangest problem that I come across is that mplayer requires mplayer-common and mplayer-common requires mplayer. Makes no sense.

Can anybody tell me in detail or send me a 3 or 4 step power point on how to accomplish this hair pulling task.

well you need three packages for mplayer to work mplayer-common the default skin and the gui package if you have all of these then install them in one go i-e

rpm -ivh package1 package2 package3

actaully you are receiving dependencies error coz these packages depends on on and another

Ok, mardanian I am going to try your suggestion and use the console to install these packages.

WOW! That was so easy... Why do they even put this GUI RPM packager in here if it doesn't work worth a damn. The console packager had the whole thing installed in 2 min


Thanks Much
