Kyum and yum problems in general.


So I do not know what I am doing with Kyum or yum in general. I am trying to install MPlayer and the Codecs to make all my fansubs run on my machine.

So first the codec Binaries. So first I ran Kyum, and I ran a search for the tar.bz2 file, just like I did for K3B. The only difference is that Kyum found K3B right away. As where when I searched for the the codec file it brought up several files but none were the package I was looking for. So I said, to hell with it I can do this on the command line. So here is what my console said:

Nothing to do
So did this package install? The last 2 lines kind of make me think that nothing happened.

Ok so onto Mplayer, I ran Kyum and had a similar outcome as with the codecs. So I decided to try and install if from the command line as well. Now I want a GUI version of the progam so I tried to run it yum with the line --enable-gui, as this tutorial at the end of the install function and well this was the output.

Command line error: no such option: --enable-gui
So once again I said, to hell with it. And once again, well nothing seemed to work so ummm any advice? Here is the console output.

I am running Fedora 5, and I am trying to make yum work on my root account. All help is appreciated and thanks in advance.

Simple problem, yum installs rpms only. To install mplayer : yum install mplayer

As long as the package is in your repo it will install it.

Here is a good starter link for FC5: http://stanton-finley.net/fedora_cor...ion_notes.html

There is a lot of information there including codecs.
