did you ever try killing the rpm process and then removing the __db.* files in /var/lib/rpm?

or did you try installing the rpm from command line? or did you just double click it within X...
if you didn't try the command line then give that a go, and if you did then try what i originally said, and if you tried everything i listed here, then i am speechless :P

When all else fails, you can always freshen up with a reboot. "rpm --verify" is a handy way to check if some installation is corrupted.

it played one .mpeg file and then after i closed it it won't work anymore
if i click on a file and open it with xine .. xine pops up for a split second and then disappears.... anyone know how to fix THAT?
actually i just tried xine in a shell and got this:

Some other program is probably using /dev/dsp. I had this problem because of arts, the KDE sound server. Xine has an output plugin for arts, just run "xine -A arts" or if your using the Gnome sound server use "xine -A esd"

go into your setup in xine and go to the audio tab and set
audio driver to use to auto.

You can also edit ~/.xine/config manually

# audio driver to use
# { auto null alsa oss arts esd }, default: 0
audio.driver:arts


BTW, there are lots of buggy versions of xine out there. I'm using xine-0.9.21-fr1 and it works well. I installed it with apt: http://apt.freshrpms.net

can't find the rpm's for xine

jchristman or whomever,

I went to rpmfind.net (without the www) to get those rpms. However, the versions in your post were not there, except for lirc-0.6.5-fr3.i386.rpm. This is what else I could find:

aalib-1.4rc5-fr2.i386.rpm
xine-0.9.21-fr1.i386.rpm

They didn't have xine-libs-0.9.13-fr6.i386.rpm at all, as far as I could tell. The x list didn't go that far.

Please advise where to find these other files, and what would be the problem if they weren't the exact files you listed.

Zac - I don't understand what to do with apt-0.5.5cnc6-fr1.i386.rpm, though I did download it from http://ftp.freshrpms.net/pub/freshrpms/redhat/9/apt/

Any help would be appreciated. I'm trying to get something to install to play DVD's in RedHat 9.

Thanks for your help!

Apt downloads packages and resolves dependencies for you automatically. For example, you can type "apt-get install xine" and it will download and install everything you need. For DVD's you can also try mplayer and ogle.

Okay jchristman,

I clicked on those links, and something happened. It downloaded and maybe even installed, but I don't have a clue what I just did. Can you tell me?

To install an rpm, for example, do "rpm -ivh xine-libs-0.9.13-fr2.i386.rpm"

Installing apt (Advanced Package Tool)

Actually todo a proper install since you have been dealing with some of these RPMs already is

rpm -Uvh packagename.rpm

I actually downloaded those 2 rpms you have listed in post #25, and it seemed to put them here
file:/home/bruce/.kde/share/apps/kfmexec/tmp
according to the download manager, but i can't see them.

What have i done, if anything?

It seems that Zac's route would have been easier, but i didn't understand the apt instructions, either.
