That would take a while . Try learning how to use yum or apt-get:

http://users.tkk.fi/~tkarvine/yum-package-manager.html

when you've yum or apt-get installed, all you've to do is to type:

yum install mplayer
or
apt-get install mplayer


and all dependencies, codecs, fonts and default gui will be downloaded from a server near you. Taking care of dependencies by hand and one by one is a thing from the last century with so many nice tools available for Linux as apt-get, yast, urpmi, apt-get, emerge...

Regards!

You have not configured extra yum repostories. Do a google search for DAG, Freshrpms, Livna and Newrpms as well as fedoraproject.org. They all provide extra packages for Fedora and there are instructions on how to setup yum or apt sources. Personally I think you are better off using the fedoraprojet.org, dag and freshrpms repositories because they are a lot more reliable than the others.

Actually, first do a search here for "yum repsitories." Several posters have nice set-up scripts you can just copy and run.

for yum's output problem listed above, I would download the mplayer rpm from www.rpmfind.net and then I would use

yum install <the complete name of the mplayer rpm>

it should work. That's what I did each time I used yum.
And of course the command should be run from the directory where the mplayer rpm has been downloaded to.


the problem with the
Code:
yum install mplayer
above
is that yum cannot find the mplayer argument, the name isn't right, if one writes the complete name of the mplayer rpm it should work just fine.

i have the same problem with dependencies. After using "yum install mplayer-vidix-ATI-Radeon-1.0pre5-2.i386.rpm" (I have downloaded that rpm previously), it downloaded (almost) all the dependencies and then I got following error message:

Error: missing dep: liblirc_client.so.0 for pkg mplayer

is it a problem with yum? I use yum.conf from fedorafaq.

Sorry, but you are wrong. You must be thinking about the rpm command. To install a rpm, you do, type the hole name of the package and have run (or specify) the path to the application. eg:

rpm -ivh /home/user/temp/mplayer1.0xxx.rpm

With yum or apt-get, only the application name is necessary _and_ it will download the application from the net, handling the dependencies.

apt-get install mplayer

The version it will download and install is the one available on the repositories specified on the apt.conf file.

Regards!
