Xine installation and PATH problem.

I am brand new to Linux and am using Fedora core. My problem is in installing Xine. from rpms and path problem I can scucessfully instal the RPMs, lib-xine and Curl, but when I try to install the xine-ui rpm, I get the error message;

Failed dependencies:
libxine1 >= 1 is needed by xine-ui-0.9.23cvs-040306 is needed by xine-ui-0.9.23cvs-040306
xine >= 0.9.22 is needed by (installed)

When I do a search I find these in the /etc/local/lib directory.

I have tried exporting the path "/etc/local/lib" and do it successfully but that doesn't fix the problem. Do I have to edit the bashrc file? I tried this butt I can't find or can't understand how to do it.
Any help would be appreciated.

no. you need to make sure that you're using a libxine version greater than or equal to version 1 so you can install the xine-ui package.

personally, i'd go to xine's website and download the *.tar.gz. the latest version is 1-rc3. the xine developers have been nice enough to provide a spec file so you can build rpms from the tarball. use the command (su into root first):

rpm -ta xine-lib-1-rc3a.tar.gz

that will compile the source code and build rpms. you can find the built rpms in /usr/src
i'm not sure the exact location on fedora, but in redhat it'll be in /usr/src/redhat/RPMS/i386

in other words, you'll have to do some digging in /usr/src for fedora.
