VLC installation - Failed Dependencies

I tried to install the vlc ( video lan client for fc 2 ) on my fc 2 system. It is giving man failed dependency errors. I want to know how to "automatically" get all these required rpm in case of any failed dependency in general?

In particular is there any rpm distribution of vlc bundled with its special dependencies?

You just need to:

yum -y install videolan-client

All dependencies will be automatically retrieved. If you need yum, you can install it from here:
