I also faced the same problem afterwards I installed Mplayer for Fedora core 3. It worked perfectly for me. Got installed without any problems and errors or any dependencies.

Hi Michael,

I was glancing at my e-mail client the instant your post showed up.
Cool! How's the weather on the other side of the globe today? We're
having a hot spell for this time of year @ +/-30F.

This excerpt from Gil's post yesterday should have tipped me off, but I
didn't read it closely enough to notice the 32 bit packages mixed in
with the 64 bit packages.

| Togan, thanks for reply. Unfortunately the 6 files I need are NOT at

| Am I in the wrong place?
| Thx.

The correct way to interpret it is as follows:

a = Pentium and lower (uses the .i586.rpm packages)
b = Pentium Pro and higher (uses the .i686.rpm packages)
c = x86_64 = 64 bit processors (uses .x86_64.rpm packages)

The primary MPlayer rpms are available in all three flavors.
So are the add-on/dependency packages.

Pick one architecture, hence one xxx.rpm suffix, and stick with it when
you're downloading the set.

Does this help?

regards,
