    mplayer installation

    Hello, I am trying to install mplayer and i have problems with nvidia, I dont have nvidia, I use ati, and when I do yum install mplayer it says also to install the nvidia drivers (i dont want them) or if I download the mplayer.rpm and rpm -i it, it also needs the nvidia drivers.

    how can i install it with ati?

    you might want to try the smartpm 'http://www.smartpm.org'. I use it to install alot of things (mplayer being one of them) and it seems to work for me. I suggest using the 0.29 packages as I had a friend that used the 0.30 and the 'search' function didn't work properly. I don't know if this will solve your ati problem or not but it is a useful tool nontheless. Remeber to down load the smart-gui as well. You will also have to install a wack load of GPG-KEYS as well which is also found on this forum at http://www.fedoraforum.org/forum/showthread.php?t=29161 Just scroll down to sailors report for the addresses on the imports. Once smart-gui is loaded you will have to refresh the channels and then away you go
