install VLC to yellow dog linux does not work


I tried to install VLC to my ps3 running yellow dog 6.2.

I went through this tutorial

When i was done, the installation of "yum install vlc" stated successfull and in menu applications -> sound and video i can se VLC.

But when i click it, nothing happends.
I think something is happening, because ps3 is getting more slow. and if i dubble click computer on the desktop it takes time to open.

What has gone wrong ? what can i do to make it work. Please help.. i am complete linux noob

I tried though to start vlc from Shell. Typing vlc and it seams to start, i can write vlc -help and se all commands.

But still for graphical version, to select vlc from menu, does not work.

Any ideas?

The guide was intented to version 6.1

and you are using 6.2. this could cause problems.
I am also using 6.2 and trying to install vlc.
I'll let you know if I find anything.
