RPM's won't install


I downloaded Mplayer to play some movies, and when i tried to install it, it got past the dependices, but the just stopped. It didn't ask me where i wanted to install the RPM, i tried xine, and wine, still no dice. I tried winetool from source, that worked how it should. Any ideas?

are you sure It's installed?

try the following commands:

/home/manny> rpm -qa | grep -i mplayer
mplayer-codecs-win32-qt-6.0-2
mplayer-common-0.91-1
mplayer-codecs-win32-qtextras-1.0-2
mplayer-codecs-linux-real-9.0-2
mplayer-font-iso1-1.0-1
mplayer-codecs-linux-xanim-1.0-2
mplayer-0.91-1


/home/manny> whereis mplayer
mplayer: /usr/bin/mplayer /etc/mplayer /usr/share/mplayer /usr/share/man/man1/mplayer.1.gz

command line to install rpm:

[root@mybox rpms]# rpm -Uvh mplayer-common-0.91-1.i386.rpm
Preparing... ########################################### [100%]
package mplayer-common-0.91-1 is already installed
[root@miles rpms]#

If you need to get the rpms again, you might want to try http://rpm.pbone.net/
under SEARCH, you can limit all rpms to RH9....

hope this helps,
manny
