xine and redhat 9


hey its me again mplayer won't work at all so i decided to try xine..
i installed xine-lib0.9.8 and then got the xine-ui0.9.8 and tried to install it but it told me the lib package is too old so i got 0.9.18 and it pretty much says the same thing this is the error message i get:

*** Could not run XINE test program, checking why...
*** The test program compiled, but did not run. This usually means
*** that the run-time linker is not finding XINE or finding the wrong
*** version of XINE. If it is not finding XINE, you'll need to set your
*** LD_LIBRARY_PATH environment variable, or edit /etc/ld.so.conf to point
*** to the installed location Also, make sure you have run ldconfig if that
*** is required on your system
***
*** If you have an old version installed, it is best to remove it, although
*** you may also be able to get things to work by modifying LD_LIBRARY_PATH
***
configure: error: *** You should install xine-lib first ***


i understand what it MEANS i just don't know how to do it cuz i'm stupid i guess i checked the xine homepage and looked through the info there and it just says the same thing i'm still pretty new to linux so i don't understand when people say vague things to do if anyone knows step by step how to correct this problem i would appreciate it thanx

you need these rpms

aalib-1.4rc4-fr2.1.i386.rpm
xine-0.9.13-fr6.i386.rpm
glut-3.7-8.i386.rpm
xine-libs-0.9.13-fr6.i386.rpm
lirc-0.6.5-fr3.i386.rpm

you can use a newer version of the lirc and of the aalib
the glut is already installed by 9.
the newest versions of xine require open-gl and if you want that have fun otherwise just download the above and install and they work perfect.

go download the xine-lib package and install it before installing the xine player..

just go to:
rpms

click the redhat folder
then 9 folder
then scroll down alphebetically to 'x'
you will see the xine - xine-lib - xine-skins folder with the rpms inside...you will download the i386 rpms and start by installing the xine-lib package....

more than likely you will see that there is other dependancies such as aalib, flac libfame...etc...so all you do is just get them packages, install them, and then try the package that required them and just keep doing that until it is installed..
pretty brief explanation, but i am sure you'll get it..

Installing rpms is easier than installing from source, especially with apt: http://apt.freshrpms.net

you of did that, but maybe you didn't use packages built for rh9 or maybe you had different versions installed, or whatever the case may be...obviously something was done wrong....i think you should uninstall whatever you have installed as of this moment and go and get specifically designed rh9 rpms even get the dependancies of the same site, such as the one i gave you, and i am sure you'll have better sucesss...

Well that's no good, you can only have one rpm process access the database at one time. You've got to kill off all those processes.
