Question Latest Mplayer on Mandriva 2006

I have downloaded this package:
from RPMFind, but I can't install it, keep me asking for dependencies, like libsysfs, libdirectfb.
I have installed libsys without troubles, but libdirectfb keeps me requesting libsysfs installation.

Does anyone have this trouble?

RPMs are gay. Gay, gay gay

First things first, can you use urpmi to install the new mplayer? Look around for repos that may have it so you can use urpmi, that will make your life 100% easier. If not, then perhaps try --nodeps on libdirectfb if you're sure you have libsysfs installed to stop it checking.
