buy the REQUIRED license from red hat
And if you have to ask then YOU WILL NEED
the $ 299/year license
RHEL is a "Server" class operating system and as such there is almost NO support for the hardware on laptops
RHEL6 might mostly work on most laptop hardware
BUT NOT ALL !!!!!!!
So check with the sales rep if your hardware IS compatible or not
if you are NOT going to buy the required support contract
then install one of the FREE rebuilds
get ONLINE with the laptop
fallow the vlc install instructions on the vlc web site for rhel
the third party repo" RPMforge is INCOMPATIBLE with the BASE rhel system repos
and CAN kill your install if you are NOT careful!!!
so install and CONFIGURE!!! ( yes configure it ) the yum plugin
" yum-priorities "
search for it on the RHEL knowlage base
( you have to login using the username you set up with the license )
the full instructions ARE there
or see the CentOS wiki page
without the REQUIRED support license you DO NOT install software on RHEL
period, you do not !
