Do you have any of the third party repositories enabled (Livna or the RPMForge group)? Both of them list vlc versions. As info, don't enable BOTH livna and the RPMForge group due to compatibility errors: http://www.geocities.jp/rondonko/fc6notes.html#Warning

You might want to check out FedoraFAQ (link above) for Livna instructions and/or http://easylinux.info/wiki/Fedora_fc5 for RPMForge instructions. Fedora recommends Livna, but the choice is yours. You can actually set both up in your yum.repos.d but just make sure you change one or the other group to 'enabled=0'.

and is the command in yum then "yum update install videolan-client"?

bob
15th April 2007, 06:20 PM
First, you'd have to set up your 3rd. party repository - again check the sites we've mentioned. Then, it's simply 'yum install videolan-client' .

ok thanks again bob ill figure this out..i did it for Yellow dog linux but it was much easier

bob
15th April 2007, 06:24 PM
Hmmm...just checked out the EasyLinux link I mentioned and it is now also using Livna as default (Thanks for that, Leslie!!!). Anyway, it's very complete on how to set just about anything up, so I'd start with that one.

Did you enable the right repository first? You shouldn't have all those errors if you did. Let's assume you've got livna set up and enabled. Then you should be seeing it when you do 'yum -y update' or any 'yum install packagename'

snurtle
15th April 2007, 06:52 PM
ok bob i set it up with rpm and still got the same errors. the link u posted didnt have it for livna only rpm.=(

snurtle
15th April 2007, 06:58 PM
this sucks still says im missing all these dependencies..

15th April 2007, 07:11 PM
i give up this is a joke...

snurtle
15th April 2007, 07:18 PM
looks like for anything i want to add i need those dependencies.even for graphics apps.is my fedora install disk bad?

JonC
15th April 2007, 07:25 PM
are you trying to install 64 bit apps on an i386 fedora install?

snurtle
15th April 2007, 07:30 PM
no im trying to install vlc for 64bit but its saying i need these dependencies to add ANY apps now

JonC
15th April 2007, 07:36 PM
yes. But you did install a 64 bit version of fedora, didn't you?

snurtle
15th April 2007, 10:52 PM
yes i did.im not that big a newb.lol

bob
15th April 2007, 11:25 PM
Let's try posting what you've got in your /etc/yum.repos.d (you can use "ls" to list them) and then let's check out the 3rd. party repositories to see which ones you've got enabled.

snurtle
15th April 2007, 11:53 PM
ok bob im going to reinstall fedora and go from there.this is weird i run fedora on my mac and YDL on my ps3 and i have NEVER had this problem

bob
15th April 2007, 11:57 PM
Okay. Suggestion? Install it as 32 bit instead of 64 bit, unless you have specific reasons for needing 64 bit right now. Frankly, the 32 bit is a lot easier to work with and there are some programs that are just not available yet for 64 bit.

snurtle
16th April 2007, 12:04 AM
my computer is 64bit..i didnt know it will run a 32bit system will it?

lazlow
16th April 2007, 12:12 AM
Yes it will. It will also be a lot less problematic. The problems you do run into are usually easier to solve.

snurtle
16th April 2007, 12:53 AM
ok im back on and in 32bit mode...

16th April 2007, 01:00 AM

im not running any yum update or anything

bob
16th April 2007, 01:53 AM
Okay, that's because you've reinstalled and have that updater searching. You can disable it in System > Preferences > More Preferences > Sessions. Might want to wait until it's done, do the updates before going on to vlc.

snurtle
16th April 2007, 02:08 AM
bob the livna repo i made from your copy has an error in it.here is the error

Error: Cannot find a valid baseurl for repo: livna

bob
16th April 2007, 02:13 AM
Ah, yeah, sorry - it's when you paste it into the Forum, it left-justifies! You have to move each of the http's and ftp's over to be in line with the next space just after the "=" sign. In other words, if it was just one line, the first one would read:
baseurl=http://rpm.livna.org/fedora/$releasever/$basearch/

Just add some spaces before each of the http's and ftp's to get that alignment.

bob
16th April 2007, 02:28 AM
Geronimo-specs.i386 and lucene.i386 are both provided by core. It may be the version that's the problem. Let me check RPMPbone and see if we can find something....

Did you finish your updates? I see them listed now. For some fun, try going to http://rpm.pbone.net/ then click on 'Advanced" and 'uncheck all' followed by checking just Fedora 6 and then plug in "geronimo-specs" and "lucene" . There's exactly the rpms that you need. It's a good resource.

16th April 2007, 02:34 AM
ok i went into the updater thats not in the terminal and i just unchecked those to so i can update

bob
16th April 2007, 02:36 AM
No problem and just take it a bit easy. Keep your system updated and use those links for assistance when you need to find something. Once you get this all set up, you'll be surprised at how easy it is.

bob
16th April 2007, 02:41 AM
You may want to use Yumex (yum install yumex) to help with some of the searches, etc. A couple of nice things with yumex - You can see what packages are available and you can add or subtract third party repositories with just a click to get specific packages.

snurtle
16th April 2007, 02:54 AM
i went to that site and downloaded both and lucene worked fine but geronimo said i already have it installed when i tryed to install it =(

bob
16th April 2007, 03:27 AM
Try 'yum search geronimo-specs' and see what comes back. The available package from core is geronimo-specs.i386 1.0-0.M2.2jpp.12 which is also in geronimo-specs-compat.i386 1.0-0.M2.2jpp.12 , also available from core. I just checked. That 'search' will also show what you've got installed.

So, is 'core' loading when you do updates? You should be loading 'core', 'extras', 'updates' and 'livna' .

16th April 2007, 10:13 PM
dude bob - I'd recommend pointing that guy to the freshrpms website - I don't use livna or atrpms because they often conflict with fedora's repos in file versions and depend lists. Freshs are pretty good about satisfying the deps and not conflicting with the software provided for the os.

snurtle, btw, it's not that fedora is the problem - it's that vlc isn't included with the software and the site hosting the repo (ATRpms or rpm.livna.forgg) has conflicts with the repos from fedora.
You can read how to configure Yum to use other repos in the Release Documentation (Configuring yum..). Generally, you'll want to find the app to install by browsing the site, and then use yum or applications->add/remove software to install the file. IMportant.. most sites tell you step by step how to configure your system to use their packages for installation. Copying and pasting from a message forum should be your last resort, use at your own risk.

yeti

I would agree with you about ATRPMS being bad news. But livna has been very well behaved with core and extras at least since FC5. Firewing1(a CM here) even manages the packages for the kmod-nvidia at livna.

bob
16th April 2007, 10:53 PM
Yeti, actually Livna is working directly with Extras so you're less likely to have glitches than with the RPMForge group. Frankly, until Fedora6, I was always a fan of Dag, Dries, Freshrpms and tended to avoid Livna. However, I've got to say that I've had no dependency problems since I made the switch. And yes, ATRPMS is the black sheep of the repository groups and has that nasty habit of messing with kernels so I'd avoid it too.

But, to each his own - many people love ATRPMS and of course the RPMForge group. Just pick one and stick with it; only grab the OCCASIONAL package from the others.

type: cd /etc/yum.repos.d/
type: ls

This will display all of the repos (sources of packages) that the command yum is configured to use.
There are six important ones
fedora-core.repo (must have)
fedora-development.repo (for soft development packages)
fedora-extras-development.repo (for soft development packages)
fedora-extras.repo (all the good stuff)
fedora-legacy.repo (for older hardware)
fedora-updates.repo (must have)

there should be one listed fedora-updates-testing.repo (for advanced testing).
this one is optional and can be removed. recommended unless you're a beta user.
the other ones should be removed to ensure you nip this thing quick.
to remove them at the terminal which is the easiest way,

type: su -

make sure to use a space between the su and the - (regular dash next to 0)
enter the root password
make sure the current directory is still /etc/yum.repos.d

type: rm nameoftherepo-toberemoved.repo

replacing nameoftherepo toberemoved with the name of the repo to be removed.

type: ls

there should only be seven .repo files left, six if you've removed fedora-updates-testing, four if you've removed fedora-updates-testing and both fedora-development and fedora-extras-development

now, check out your yum.conf-hopefully it is unadulterated with the default values.

type: cd /etc
to put you in the directory of yum.conf

type: gedit yum.conf
this will bring up a text editor with the configuration file for yum.
here is an example of what one looks like:
(begin)

[main]
cachedir=/var/cache/yum
keepcache=0
debuglevel=2
logfile=/var/log/yum.log
pkgpolicy=newest
distroverpkg=redhat-release
tolerant=1
exactarch=1
obsoletes=1
gpgcheck=1
plugins=1
metadata_expire=1800

# PUT YOUR REPOS HERE OR IN separate files named file.repo
# in /etc/yum.repos.d

(end)
You can ideally not have any of your repo data here. Notice how there aren't any repos listed. They aren't necessary. They will be in /etc/yum.repos.d/

Check to see if rpm.livna.forrgg package is installed to use livna repos:
type: rpm -q livna-release
if nothing is found, you're all good. if it shows livna-release.some.number is installed,
then type: yum remove livna-release

now to the installation
pop open a web browser, and go to http://freshrpms.net
about the tenth line down there is a link click here that is their link to the .rpm package to configure yum to use freshrpms repos. using firefox, clicking on the link opens a window that says "open with" choose software installer (should be default) and click ok. Follow the software installers steps (1.enter root password 2.click ok 3.done). Yum should now be configured to use freshrpms repos, which have all of the necessary packages required to get the vlc going for ya.

type: cd /etc/yum.repos.d/
type: ls
there should now be a freshrpms.repo listed.
make sure you're still the root user and type:
yum install vlc libdvdplay libdvdnav libdvdread libdvdcss
vlc-video lan client
libdvdplay-for viewing dvds
libdvdnav-for viewing dvds with menus
libdvdread-for viewing dvds
libdvdcss-for viewing most all commercial dvd movies that have "encryption"

applications>sound & video>vlc

good luck

Yeti, rather than remove the ones you don't normally use, why not change "enabled=1" to "enabled=0" ? That way you can still call them up with 'yum --enablerepo=whatever install whatever" ? There are always some package that I find I need (like Firefox 2.0) from one of the disabled repos.

I'm having the same problem with the resolving dependencies, and I have two questions.

1) how do I "reset" everything yum has for repositories. After deleting and adding different repos, I don't know what I have and have not done, and it's kinda a mess. Is there a way to just clear everything

2) I have done exactly what you guys have said, and I have not reached a solution yet.

You should have 'core', 'updates' and 'extras' and those should be "enabled=1" . After that, you should have either livna or freshrpms, but not both, enabled for those 3rd. party apps. All the other stuff can be 'enabled=0' for normal use. The problem is that if you've enabled all the different repositories, you're bound to have dependency problems now and then, at a minimum, with different versions of applications. So stick with the 3rd. party repository you've used the most often and do some research when the dependency issues come up. Chances are that if Livna's the conflict, Freshrpms has a version too and removing the Livna will allow you to clear it up with a Freshrpm install of the same package.

In your particular case, if it isn't working, chances are that you have a mix going on and you'll have to remove and reinstall some packages to get it straightened out. Good luck.

the reason i post this is because for some reason i tried to switch in the bios and seems like the grub is gone for fedora so it tries to boot win xp for some crazzy reason even though both those other drives are disconnected so its weird.so im reinstalling fedora with both other drives disconnected like last time and then just boot from grub for all the drives instead of the bios cause i think my bios is getting confused.got any ideas?

Well, to answer your first question, you'd use the 'mapping' mentioned in Jim's tutorial: http://jimlawrnc.mine.nu/mywiki/DualBootLinux. The second question is because you've changed the grub.conf designations for Fedora by unplugging the Windows drive(s). You should still have a grub menu when it begins to boot, but you may have a designation as (hd0,0) when it's really now (hd1,0), depending on the position of the drives in the computer's mind. So, stop the grub boot and use the 'e' key to edit and change the lines that refer to (hd0,0) to (hd1,0) and then hit 'b' for "boot" and see if you're okay.

And when you do get things working, you're going to open a terminal as root (su -), give your password and then type: "gedit /boot/grub/grub.conf" and that will open another window with your current grub.conf to be edited. Make the changes necessary, according to Jim's tutorial and after typing in the last line, hit 'enter' once more to make a blank line at the bottom of the grub.conf. That allows the computer to read all the way to the bottom. Then, 'save' and close the window, type "exit" to leave root and save your work, close the terminal and reboot to see if things are okay again.
