Just loaded up Fedora Core yesterday and I am a major n00b with linux so bear with me here. Trying to install mplayer and having a heck of a time. First it errored out saying I needed "libmp3lame" so I figured out that I needed to install Lame. I tried but all that does is error out on me saying it can't create directory.
So any help would be apprieciated.
 
Are you installing from source?

You might to have a go with RPM's first if you really dont know what you are doing, they should automatically fix depencies (I think, its been awhile since I've used an RPM distro).

Anyhoo, I prefer Xine with GZine since it incorporates plugins for Mozilla/Firebird.
 
Yes they are RPMs, but still no luck even getting Lame to install. Think I might check out Xine instead. Any tips there on getting that installed?
 
Thanks NetRyder, I have used VLC in windows and did not realize they had a linux port will definately try it.
 
Yeah, VLC works on almost every major platform/OS you can think of :)

Also Hi EP and people. I found this place again while looking through a oooollllllldddd backup. I have filled over 10TB and was looking at my collection of antiques. Any bids on the 500Mhz Win 95 fix?
Any of the SP crew still out there?

Impressed you have kept this alive this long EP! So many sites have come and gone. :(

Just did some crude math and I apparently joined almost 18yrs ago, how is that possible???
