Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6 x64 Client closed-source software


Hi,

I would like to play .mp3 and .mpeg files with Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6 Client. Flash and Java must also be working.

For Java, I have download the jre-6u22 and the jdk-6u22 and installed manually. How can I get automatically updates for them?

For Flash, I have installed the i386 package and the .repo so the updates must working.

So, I have

Code:
/etc/yum.repos.d/
adobe-linux-i386.repo
atrpms.repo
epel.repo
epel-testing.repo
mirrors-rpmforge
mirrors-rpmforge-extras
mirrors-rpmforge-testing
packagekit-media.repo
rpmforge.repo
rpmforge.repo.rpmnew
rpmforge-testing.repo.rpmsave
rpmfusion-free-updates.repo
rpmfusion-free-updates-testing.repo
rpmfusion-nonfree-updates.repo
rpmfusion-nonfree-updates-testing.repo
http://elrepo.org hasnīt RHEL6 yet.

Enabled are only Adobe,RHEL Client v6 for 64-bit x86_64 and the RHEL 6Client - RPMforge.net -dag repositories. The others make problems with dependencys. RPM Fusion has no EL 6 repos, so I deactivate them.

I have choosed to install the gstreamer plug-ins bad but havenī t find them. Manually download from rpmfind or pbone results with wrong depencies...itīs horrible.

Can someone help me to make mp3 and other closed-source working? I come from Debian, so somethings under RedHat are new for me.

Edit: btw, rpm-build is missing, I read that this is only supported with "higher" red hat subscriptions...boring. Does someone know a solution for this crap?

Thank you.

Regards

karo_hearth
