MPlayer problem
I try install Mplayer it says I need 'mplayer-common' so I look and download it and it tells me i need 'mplayer' well naturally im a tiny bit lost. Anyone know what im supposed to do?

I miss music :cry:

assuming they are two rpm's you just install them both on the same command line.

Well if I knew how to do that I probably would have already considered that as a possibility... lol, care to explain?

rpm -ivh name-of-file.rpm name-of-other-file.rpm
for future up command line


man rpm
Best way to install software for Fedora Core is to use yum.

Open up terminal,


man yum

Enter root password


yum update

yum install name-of-software

Also, how do you account for WHERE the files are? Mine are in the home directory but I am assuming they either have to be somewhere or the location has to be refrenced in the command?

not to go all RTFM, but i really don't see why we need to repeat ourselves for basic installation details, just look at the RPM entry in our wiki
