software installation problem?


I have install two softwares(mplayer,QTparted) through urpmi,but the icon of the softwares did not occur in the main menu.then run the command "mplayer",but it doesn't work.

How can I format a vfat partition into a reiserfs one?

mplayer did not give you a menu shortcut or work when you call for it due to it being a command line program. To make it work the way you expect you must also install the "mplayer-gui". That is the graphical user interface you are trying to find, so "urpmi mplayer-gui", then you are good to go.

qtparted must be run as root, try at command line :
Code:
[don@localhost ~]$ su
Password:
[root@localhost don]# qtparted
(not available to regular users)

qtparted will do what you want

you are most welcome,
Another cool mplayer app is mplayerplugin
with this installed, when you go to a site such as http://www.movie-list.com/trailers.p...dukesofhazzard mplayer will play embedded video in webpages, quicktime, etc within your web browser, so if that interests you "urpmi mplayerplugin"
