Mplayer with FC1

I DL'd an MPlayer, but it turns out it was just for Debian. I have Fedora Core 1. Does anyone know where I can find MPlayer for Fedora?

yum is your friend

# yum search mplayer
Looking in installed packages for a providing package

Installed package: mplayer-fonts.noarch 0:1.1-0.lvn.3.1 matches with
Installed package: mplayerplug-in.i386 0:2.11-0.lvn.2.1 matches with
Installed package: mplayer.i386 0:1.0-0.lvn.0.4.pre3.1 matches with
4 results returned

Based on the "lvn" part of the above lines looks like I got mine from the livna yum repository--not official Fedora, but they try hard to be compatible.

I've edited my yum.conf to include these lines:

[livna-stable] Fedora Compatible Packages (stable)

[livna-unstable] Fedora Compatible Packages (unstable)

[livna-testing] Fedora Compatible Packages (testing)

You may or may not want unstable and testing.

After editing yum.conf, then try "yum search mplayer" to see what's available and "yum install mplayer" to install.
