when you download them, make sure you just send them to /home/bruce/
and make sure there names stay the same. If not your browser is changing them and puting them into the temp and changing there names when this happens it will also drop off the .rpm at the end of the file. If you have to right click on the links and try the save link as to get it to save the file correctly. Or just try a differant browser to download them .

jchristman,

The browser was the problem. Changed from Konqueror to Mozilla and got to select where to save them. I have all four rpm's now (you said glut not needed).

Now, is there any particular order in which I should install them? And do I do the install Zac said on post #28 or the one you said on post #29?

Thanks!

If you have not installed any before use post #28 other wise use #29
The differance is that the rpm -ivh means just install it.
the rpm -Uvh means if there is version already installed then Upgrade to the new version and this will not overwrite older files.

istall them alphabetically

alib
lirc
glut (this is not needed in redhat 9) a newer version is already installed.
xine-libs
xine

How can I check to see what Konqueror might have done?

all that Konqueror does is download and save the files with its own temp name. so if you downloaded them you can just delete the files out of tmp they just al start with a - k if there are none there then it didnot complete the download, so dont worry about it. There is a setting in konqueror to change the way it downloads files but I cannot remeber where it is at.

Thanks for all your help. I will attempt the install of xine now.

Personally, I have a DVD player and a TV. However, my Chinese friend who is my contact at the store where I buy parts to build and repair computers wants it for his Linux box, which he installed the day after me. I am trying to help him, and since it is so difficult reading Chinese menus, I am installing on my system first so I can tell him how to do it, and help if needed.

Will post back and let you know if I was able to get it working.

Thanks for your help!

You can just type "xine" on the command line. Maybe there's also a shortcut in the K-menu under "Sound & Video". I associate video files with xine in the Konqueror file manager so I can just click on the files. That's Konqueror->Settings->Configure Konqueror->File Associations and the you can type in a pattern like .avi and it will show you the existing assciation so you can modify it.

Before I went to bed last night, I found xine in /usr/bin

By clicking on the icon in there, it launched. Somewhere in the process, I closed the actual player part, and now all I get is the cute little xine splash screen. I'll read some other xine threads to see if I can find out how to fix my problem.

The DVD's that I'm inserting have 2 folders, audio-ts and video-ts. No files show up in the audio folder; the video folder has .bup, .ifo, and .vob files. Show hidden files is checked.

Also, Xine didn't show as a shortcut in the K-menu under "Sound & Video" until I rebooted Linux. I thought Linux didn't have to reboot to show an installed program. Boy, do I have a lot to learn, eh? (Like how to make the KDE desktop come up on reboot, instead of Gnome -and what's the difference anyway?) How do you make stuff you select stick? Will try to run linuxconf and get that option from manual or whatever to automatic.

Thanks for your help.

right-click on the video output area and then choose the first option: "GUI visibility"

At the most, you would have to restart KDE. A reboot is definitely overkill.

The program "switchdesk"

To change your desktop to always default to KDE

run
cat /etc/sysconfig/desktop
DESKTOP="GNOME"

change this var to = KDE
This will always make it start by default.

Do a custom install and partion your harddrive manually based upon usage and what you will be doing with the system and if you are the only one using it.

Okay. I did that.

Now, I am installing all the packages, but they will all be running, also, right? Can I stop stop some from running so my system is more efficient?

Still have the xine rpm's from you - it worked okay, but still needed setup. Think I can do it fine.

Just inserted CD#3.

If you installed all the rpms this will only cause it to take up more space, and some more services will run. What you dont want just use the redhat-config-packages and remove the them. If you want to leave them on there just to play with thats fine. As for the services once you get the machine up and running run
ps aux
and figure out what you want dont want that is and what you want that is not like http, ftp, dns, dhcp, etc....
I will help if you want.
