On the search for the one true "LIBRARY"

I have all of the necessary downloads for xine and I understand how to untar and install them, however when I try to properly install I read the check list and I think that some part of the lib it needs is missing. It ends up not being able to be installed. How do I get the parts of the lib that it needs to be installed. I have fedora core one. I havent written everything down yet but I think that one thing its missing has something to do with the Qt lib. I went to a book store and bought the os with its release book shouldnt all the libs to complete xine installment already be on there.

It would be really helpful if you could tell us the following:

How you have tried to install it
What the error messages you received are

in my opinion (but some disagree)
xine is lame !

it has loads of dependency's
its hard to understand and configure.
its slow.

and it cannot handle corrupt / partially downloaded media programs,
often hangs when u play a half downloaded file on my system.

and since all my media files are downloaded on p2p networks, there is always a degree of corruption, and xine quite at the first sign.

i would recomend a media player like mplayer.
it installs straight away on my fedora core1, no extra dependency;s to download
and it handles corrup / partially downloaded media very well.

and with the windows codecs installed, it will play any media file.

download these rpm's

and install all at once (circular dependency)
rpm -Uvh mplayer*.rpm

but i read a forum a while ago on xine vs mplayer.
and it seems not every1 agree's with me (but many do).
