Install of movie application - Red Hat v9

I have RedHat v9. Logged in as root using Terminal. Have downloaded linxine1* xine-ui* & curl* for creating movie-player application.

However the instructions appear to be for early version of RedHat (v7). They use the command

rpm -u <filelist>

What is correct command to use to install the rpms in RH v9 for the above if I have the RPMs for them?

Hi davidjchurchill and welcome to There are many commands to install an rpm. Here are two:

rpm -ivh <name_of_package.rpm>

The "i" stands for "install", "v" for "verbose" and "h" for "hash" (so you see "#" during the progress of installation).

rpm -Uvh <name_of_package.rpm>

This will upgrade a previous installed package. I highly recommend you installing Xine from your Redhat CD's. If I remember right it's already shipped with your distribution. A good (consider by many better ) movie player is mplayer:

If you are unfamiliar installing programs in linux (both rpms or compiling from source) take a look at this thread:

Good luck
