I upgraded from fedora 10 to 11, and I'm having trouble with videos, watching DVD movies with any player is impossible.

I followed the link from another forum posts which took me to this page: http://on-disk.com/cms/index.php?wiki=Review-Fedora_11_page3

After following the instructions from the top of the page and downloading the file, upon installation I receive this error message:

Local install failed: Can't install /tmp/rpmfusion-free-release-stable.noarch.rpm as no transaction

Also, I unistalled vlc player and tried to reinstall and get this error:

Dependency resolution failed: libx264.so.61 is needed by package vlc-core-0.9.9-2.fc10.i386 (rpmfusion-free-updates)
libfaad.so.0 is needed by package vlc-core-0.9.9-2.fc10.i386 (rpmfusion-free-updates)
libavcodec.so.51 is needed by package vlc-core-0.9.9-2.fc10.i386 (rpmfusion-free-updates)
libcdio.so.7 is needed by package vlc-core-0.9.9-2.fc10.i386 (rpmfusion-free-updates)
libcdio.so.7(CDIO_7) is needed by package vlc-core-0.9.9-2.fc10.i386 (rpmfusion-free-updates)
dejavu-fonts is needed by package vlc-0.9.9-2.fc10.i386 (rpmfusion-free-updates)

Every where I try to install the correct packages for video I get errors and I'm at a loss.

Any help appreciated greatly.

the possible easiest way to install vlc media player, you need internet connection and type the command line

become root: su -

and type: yum install vlc

yum will manage all the dependencies and download + install vlc for you

if yum respond that there is no vlc in software database,
check if the rpmfusion is accesible, check in system > administration > software sources, if there is rpmfusion in the list and it is checked that is OK. if not, you need to add this software repository

to add rpmfusion, type: rpm -ivh http://download1.rpmfusion.org/free/fedora/rpmfusion-free-release-stable.noarch.rpm

I did that and received the same missing lib errors; here are just a few:

--> Finished Dependency Resolution
vlc-0.9.9-2.fc10.i386 from rpmfusion-free-updates has depsolving problems
--> Missing Dependency: dejavu-fonts is needed by package vlc-0.9.9-2.fc10.i386 (rpmfusion-free-updates)
vlc-core-0.9.9-2.fc10.i386 from rpmfusion-free-updates has depsolving problems
--> Missing Dependency: libcdio.so.7(CDIO_7) is needed by package vlc-core-0.9.9-2.fc10.i386 (rpmfusion-free-updates)
vlc-core-0.9.9-2.fc10.i386 from rpmfusion-free-updates has depsolving problems
--> Missing Dependency: libx264.so.61 is needed by package vlc-core-0.9.9-2.fc10.i386 (rpmfusion-free-updates)

Also, vlc ran before my updating fedora from 10 to 11. However, it did not play regular dvd movies neither did mplayer. Fedora is doing OK, I just want to be able to watch legal dvd movies from my notebook while my TV dvd player is in the shop.

It looks like you are trying to install F10 packages as you said you upgraded F10>F11 you need the rpmfusion repo for F11. :)

I tried updating lib packages and received the error below, could there be a directory that needs the privileges lifted?

# sudo yum install libdvdcss
Loaded plugins: dellsysidplugin2, protectbase, refresh-packagekit
0 packages excluded due to repository protections
Setting up Install Process
No package libdvdcss available.
Nothing to do

Note: I'm running F11 and the link to my updates is here: http://www.mjmwired.net/resources/mjm-fedora-f11.html#mediaplayers

Do you have the livna repo enabled/installed? that is where libdvdcss package is located.

Where would I locate this directory, install the package or go to enable them?

Thanks

If you have the repos installed they would be located in "etc/yum.repos.d" . If you do not have the rpmfusion or livna repos then your best and easiest way to get what you need would be to go to the "Guides and Solutions" forum here and look for "F11 and F10 Set up script (Autoten) by Dangermouse and use that. :)

if you want libdvdcss your gonna have to install su -c "rpm -ivh http://rpm.livna.org/livna-release.rpm"

OK, I have completely reinstalled fedora 11 thus trashing the upgrade, which seemed to have a few issues. I installed vlc and with it all lib directories, files or whatever ... do I still need to install livna?

vlc still does not play a dvd movie.

you need other files such as libdvdnav

you still need livna, where else are you gonna get libdvdcss updates from?

better yet, install those libs, an install Mplayer
