IIRC you can use wildcards on the command line with rpm. For example:
Code:
rpm -Uvh mplayer*rpm

I think yum is the tool that will also download dependencies for Fedora (Is that your distro?). Using wildcards for rpm just allows multiple rpms to be installed from a local directory without worrying about which order they need to be installed in.

Yeah, something like yum will really, really, help with this, as an ongoing solution. You will see this over and over again. However, in this case you are really close, You only need mplayer-common, then use the wild card thing and rpm will figure out what has to be installed first, second, etc.
