mplayer rpm packages problem


Hi
i have Redhat Linux 8.0
i wanted to install mplayer.
For this purpose i downloaded two rpms but the problem is that when i try to install one rpm it says that it need a package (which is in the other rpm) and vice versa .
How can i combine the two rpms
on the other hand

please show the source where i can get complete rpm package of mplayer for Linux8.0

and don't talk about that .tar stuff. im a beginner
thanx

You can install both of them at once by having both rpms in one directory and doing:

rpm -ivh *.rpm

This will install EVERY rpm file in that directory so make sure only the Mplayer rpms are in that directory.
