Sorry for my ignorance, but I don't understand how these **are** the 6 files I
need. I downloaded the "b" package from Packman -- the MPlayer for i686.
This is not obvious from Packman's site, but the i686 package has the same dependencies as the i586 packages. i686 is just more optimized for your processor.
is NO indication that any of the files shown above are for the "b" package
(only for those who download the "a" or "c" packages), and they certainly don't
have the same file names as those I was warned I needed when I tried to install
the rpms.
c packages are for a different processor altogether and is not compatible with your system.
In any case, I already had < (libtheora)> and < (libogg)> installed (from when I grabbed
Xine from Packman). Three of the files above are for AMD64, so I sure as heck
don't need those, right?
right, but you don need the the i686 lame package
Now, please explain how to find the 6 files I listed previously as necessary
due to dependency problems.
Easiest is to open the package in kpackage and look at the line unmet dependencies and maybe the depends as well. It isn't always so straight forward. Any unmet dependency could be looked up in Yast Package Manager and installed if available on your dvds/cds.
Your reply makes me feel really stupid.
We are all in a permanent learning state, no one has arrived.
