Why i can't install vlc on my RHEL 5 Server?


i just installed Redhat Enterprise Linux 5 Server and i've been trying to download and install vlc for RHEL 5.But I keep having dependency issues
precisely

"The following packages have unmet dependencies:
vlc: Depends: libfribidi.so.0 but it is not installable"

I've tried searching for this particular file but to no avail.
can anyone help me out and if possible give me step by step instructions on what to do?
It'll be much appreciated.

Hi and welcome to LQ.

How exactly are you trying to install the package? You could setup the DAG(rpmforge) yum repository and then install vlc using yum e.g.
Code:
#yum install vlc

Ok, since you do not have a RH license you cannot use the RH repo (it requires a license). Centos is RHEL with the logos removed. You can use Cenots' repo on RHEL5(see Centos wiki). Once you have a base repo you can use, you should be able to satisfy the dependencies.
