amd64; FC5; nivida5700; geforce3 chipset;
I have been trying to install mplayer. I had it working once before, I had to reinstall FC5 (been away from linux for a bit, made a real mess). Now i'm trying to install mplayer (yum, rpm, or sources) play back is choppy and it will play 1 of 5 movies it played before. (all WMV). I have read mplayer docs, nvidia forum, stanton finely's site. I have installed all-codecs, built from sources, rpm, and yum. I have tried all of the video drivers. All with the same result. Part of the reason i made the mess to start with is a script i downloaded for yum was for a i386.
So i decided to try installing 32 bit mplayer and kept getting failed deps. Now I'm trying to use yumex with --forcei386, fails deps. I have these deps openal, direcfb, ect they are 64 bit.
A) 64 bit mplayer should have worked
B) I had installed 32 bit before, and can't do it now. because i didn't have most of these 64 bit this loaded
C)I'm missing something, start linking lib64=>lib ???? Nope still missing. WHAT please explain
D) I have lost my mind, and it never worked
Thanks for any help
Tired of fighting this, going to sleep.
