In general check out this site

www.pbone.net

go to advanced search and only select fc3 and fc4

you can search rpms by files within the package.

And just a bit of theory:
X server/Xwindow is the software that allows your computer to have graphics.

GNOME and KDE are both built upon X Window (note: Not XWindows. There is no s. This may save you trouble of fanatics yelling at you in #fedora). Anyway, this means all XWindow programs work in both KDE a and GNOME.

The problems I have with MPlayer is that I just can't seem to get it to play a DVD. I can browse for the video files on the DVD and play them individually, but it won't just play and bring up the menus from which I can select.

Totem-xine just works better for me. When I select to play the disc, it will go through the inevitable FBI warning, and preliminary stuff, then come to the menu. I can select to play the DVD, or select other option from the DVD menu just as if I were playing it in a DVD player.

That is why I prefer Totem-xine over MPlayer.

Regards,

Stephen

May I know what problems you had with mplayer? Actually I am interested in XMMS which need MPLAYER. Also I need something to play DVDs. So I thought this option is like a double edged sword for me.
Appreciate your suggestions.

Thumbs up Another success story with MPLAYER

Hi,
mplayer is working!!!

I installed it using RPM. I will compile the list of dependencies for mplayer and xmms soon and post it so that others need not put lot of effort and time. I realised you got to be very disciplined while installing with RPM. Special thanks to Heon.

Tejas thanks for the valuable tip. I agree that you need to talk smart when you are in a group of experts here.

I still need to install xmms. I have just resolved the dependencies.

It gives pleasure and boosts immense confidence when you make something work.

Thanks,
fedoX

Question

I have installed mplayer and xmms on FC4 and both are working fine. But I have an interesting problem here.

When I was installing xmms-normalize.i386 0.7.6-0.lvn.9.4 for xmms it asked for normalize.i386 0.7.6-0.lvn.9.4 rpm and inturn normalize.i386 0.7.6-0.lvn.9.4 asked for faad2.i386 2.0-0.lvn.4.4 rpm. But while installing mplayer I had already installed faad2.i386 2.0-0.lvn.4.5 rpm. Both are getting into conflict. So how do I resolve them so as to install normalize.i386 0.7.6-0.lvn.9.4 and xmms-normalize.i386 0.7.6-0.lvn.9.4 rpms.

USe this extremely carefully. It can be your best friend or your worst nightmare:

rpm --force --nodeps -Uvh package.

Hi Tejas,
What do you mean by that? Should I use it or not? Under what conditions I should use it?
Thanks,
fedox
