Question Error installing VLC in YDL6 on PS3


I've been following this guide here
http://news.softpedia.com/news/How-t...1-101664.shtml

I followed all the steps to the letter (I think ) I get all the way to the end and when I type the command
Quote:
yum install vlc
I end up with the message
Quote:
9 packages excluded due to repository protections Nothing to do
Sorry for being such a noob, but I have no idea what that means. Can anyone help me out with this? Thanks in advance!

I'd love to help you Masta, I'm even a fellow Canuk, but I don't much about yum-based systems. Doesn't yum give you any more information to work with than what you posted?
Personally, I prefer to compile vlc myself from sources and I would happy to help you if you want to try that.

Otherwise try and post whatever info you have regarding the failure to install the vlc package. I assume you're using a cli and not a gui, right?
cheers,
jdk
